My Review for 'Firelight' by Sophie Jordan

Book Description from HarperTeen:

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 among her kind, she nearly pays with her life. Until a beautiful stranger saves her. A stranger who was sent to hunt those like her. For Jacinda is a draki—a descendant of dragons whose greatest defense is her secret ability to shift into human form.

Forced to flee into the mortal world with her family, Jacinda struggles to adapt to her new surroundings. The only bright light is Will. Gorgeous, elusive Will who stirs her inner draki to life. Although she is irresistibly 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 as a human forever. She'll do anything to prevent that. Even if it means getting closer to her most dangerous enemy.

Mythical powers and breathtaking romance ignite in this story of a girl who defies all expectations and whose love crosses an ancient divide.


I had heard a lot of buzz and great things about this book many months before it had come out by other bloggers. And, I must say, it really did live up to my expectations. Firelight blew me away from beginning to end. It had the right amount of young-teen drama and peer-pressure for a YA book. But mixed in with that was also suspense, forbidden romance, confusion and rebelliousness which really drew me into this story.

I will definitely be getting my hands on the next books in this series! I need to know what happens next!
