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.
Firelight is lavishing with brilliance. Uniqueness and originality brimmed on every page. Jacinda and Will's love is deep and magnificent. The relationship was powerful and cascaded off the pages in to a beautiful story that kept you captivated. It felt real not forced or faked, something done rarely. Sophie Jordan had the perfect blending of characters. Cassian was a character you wished that he can't be as self absorbed as he is spelled out to be. You want to like him eve if you shouldn't. I noticed when you read a lot of paranormal books the back stories tend to have holes in them. I couldn't find any. It just made sense. Even the stupid mistakes Jacinda made. I can see a teen trying to do what's right but in the end having everything turn upside down.
Sophie Jordan hit the mark with Firelight. For those who enjoyed the tug and pull of the love between the characters in Twilight, this is a book for you. I can honestly recommend this to everyone. There is something for everyone. I am still reeling about how amazing this book is. Have not read this yet? You really need to get up and run to the store and pick this up! Highly recommended! Talk about being thankful that Firelight is a series.
