Firelight by Sophie Jordan

[September 7, 2010]

With her rare ability to breathe fire, Jacinda is special even among the draki—the descendants of dragons who can shift between human and dragon forms. But when Jacinda’s rebelliousness leads her family to flee into the human world, she struggles to adapt, even as her draki spirit fades. The one thing that revives it is Will, whose family hunts her kind. Jacinda can’t resist getting closer to him, even though she knows she’s risking not only her life but the draki’s most closely guarded secret.

Dragons. Interesting concept. My brain automatically goes to DragonLand. But the gorgeous cover and very intriguing summary meant I had to give it a shot.

Jacinda was phenomenal. I found her so interesting, her complete dedication to the pride and to life as a draki, and all she's willing to do for it. At the same time she also had Will and she was willing to do anything for him. I was fascinated watching her try to balance the two halves.

Will was kind of up and down for me. He was an arrogant jerk at first, then he was so sweet and he really, truly loved Jacinda. I mean, he cries at one point. Teenage guys crying over a girl? In this case, it was definitely because of love.

The writing sucked me in for hours. I don't think I did more than two sittings for this and yes, I cried again. I'm a wimp, I know. But I swear I wasn't until I started reading so much!

I don't think I can say anything else without spoiling or sounding like a broken record. Bottom Line: You want this book.
