Review: Firelight by Sophie Jordan

FirelightTitle: Firelight (Firelight #1)
Author: Sophie Jordan
Pages: 336
ISBN: 0061935085

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.


One word. WOW! Firelight has been a delight from the first word to the last last page of the book. I was captivated initially by the great cover art of the book and when I read the book description and other reviews, I decided that I must have this book. After reading it in one sitting, I conclude that it was worth the price.

Firelight provided me with a great journey and I was hooked and craving for more. I loved every character in the book and although it is a fantasy it was so realistic. Though I haven't read a lot bout dragon, I was not lost in reading Firelight. I was given every vital information that I need to read the book. In term of the characters, it was enjoyable, I sympathized, I felt irritated, I felt joy. It was a roller coaster ride but it was all worth it. If Firelight is the first book of a series, I would definitely follow the series devotedly.

Who would I recommend this book to? Well, everybody. That's how greatly written Firelight is.
