Notice:


As of June 9, 2012 I will no longer be accepting e-books for review. This is due to the overwhelming
demand of reviews, work and night classes taking up a lot of my spare time. It
is taking me several months to read and post reviews therefore until “my to be
reviewed list” is smaller I will no longer accept any more e-books for review.
I am extremely sorry.

Review: Firelight by Sophie Jordan

A HIDDEN TRUTH
MORTAL ENEMIES
DOOMED LOVE

Marked as special at an early age, Jacinda knows her every move is watched. But she longs for freedom to make her own choices. When she breaks the most sacred tenet of her kind, she nearly pays with her life, only to be spared by a beautiful stranger sent to hunt those like her. For Jacinda is a draki--a descendant of dragons whose ability to shift into human form is her best defense.
Forced to flee into the mortal world, Jacinda struggles to adapt. The one bright light is Will. Gorgeous, elusive Will who stirs her inner draki to life. Although she is irrestibly drawn to him, Jacinda knows Will's dark secret: He and his family are hunters. She should avoid him at all costs. But her inner draki is slowly slipping away - if it dies she will be left a human forever. She'll do anything to prevent that. Even if it means getting closer to her most dangerous enemy.
Mythical powers and irresistible passion ignite in this story of a girl who defies all expectations and whose love crosses an ancient divide ...

I haven’t read a book about dragons since Eragon and I found Sophie’s take on dragons to be quite interesting and entertaining. I like that the family dynamics are more complicated than I get along perfectly with my mother or she doesn’t exist.

I liked being able to feel Jacinda’s contradicting feelings towards Will. It actually felt that you were the one who was having the feelings. Many times I yelled out “Oh Come on Jacinda don’t you see it!” I love when I am able to yell at a character – even if they aren’t real they feel real to me.

I really like Will, he is a real sweetheart and Jacinda seems to think so as well. There is just enough action, family drama and romance in this novel to satisfy every reader. I can’t wait for the next book in the series.
