Firelight by Sophie Jordan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Jacinda is a Dragon, ahem, sorry, the PC term is Draki. Jacinda is a very special Draki, a very rare fire breather…the first one born to her pride in many centuries. This makes her very special and highly coveted. Jacinda just wants freedom to make her own decisions.
Forced to leave home and enter the mortal world, Jacinda has one bright spot, his name is Will. She is drawn to him like a moth to a flame…and he ignites the hidden dragon within. With her pride searching for her, and dragon hunters always on the lookout. Life has become more complicated than Jacinda thought possible.
This was an incredibly fun read. I was sucked in hook, line, and sinker by the second page when Jacinda goes through her transformation into a dragon. Sophie Jordan created such a fascinating mythos for these characters. I just had to know more.
As for Jacinda’s ability as a fire-breather…it was so cool…I loved how it would pop up at the most inopportune times. Jacinda thinks it’s a lame ability, and yet it’s so prized because there hasn’t been one in her pride for so long. Sophie Jordan created some really interesting talents for her Draki to have. I’m in hopes this series will continue for a while and maybe explore storylines with some of the other Draki!
There is so much more I would like to say in this review, but can’t figure out how to get the crux of it out without spoiling everything…and without being so vague that what I write is pointless. All I can really say is that if you like dragons (LOVE ‘EM), action, adventure, love stories, and teenage angst…then this is the story for you! LOL
