Firelight

Thank you to the wonderful Blue Willow Bookshop for allowing me to borrow the ARC for this book, I was not disappointed and couldn't wait for Monday to roll around to where I could share my thoughts!

Book: FIRELIGHT
Author: Sophie Jordan
Page Count: 323
Release Date: 9/7/2010

Synopsis (found on back of book):
Marked as special. Jacinda knows her every move is watched. 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. 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: Jacinda knows she should avoid him at all costs-Will and his family are hunters-but the passion he stirs within her can't be ignored. Even if it means risking her life.

My Review:

Sophie Jordan is a Draki Genius, this story will have you hooked from page one, an event right from the beginning sets the tone right from the beginning -and you won't be disappointed- Jacinda finds herself in prison -actually High School- the place where every teenage suffers at least once, but Jacinda finds herself trapped in a place she doesn't belong and she'll do anything to get back to the pride until she finds Will. Sophie Jordan did not disappoint in the love scenes, she was amazing all through the end, you'll find your heart racing even at the sight of that gorgeous hunk Will! Jacinda is so relateable you'll find yourself rooting for her all the way!

The only thing I didn't like? The end, you'll be dying for the sequel, but you'lll have to patiently wait for that because the wonderful Sophie Jordan is currently in revisions!

Read any good books lately?

Now that seems like a good spin for a contemporary YA, and any story that leaves you wanting more is definitely done right!

I love shifters! They're defintely my favorite Mythical. I've not read a dragon shifter so that grabs me immediately although I've never been a fan of dragon stories (reasons unknown)but there are shifters involved an a unique love twist! And I love books that don't skirt around the love scenes! Yay! So this will go in my TBR, not that I don't have a huge stack already ;) Thanks for the review!
