Firelight (Firelight, #1)Firelight by Sophie Jordan

My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars

Summary from Goodreads: 
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.

This is a refreshingly new take on modern dragons, the draki. Sophie takes an ancient mythological creature and creates a place for them in the modern world. The book draws you in and before you realize it you have read fifty pages and can't stop.

Jacinda is the only fire breather that her Pride has seen in a very long time.  This is a blessing and a curse for Jacinda, who just wants to be left alone.  When given a fresh start she is pulled to an unexpected someone who adds to her confusion and potential danger.  And just when you think you know everything.....Well, you'll just have to read it to understand.

I devoured this book and can't wait to see what's next for Jacinda, Will, Cassian, and Tamra when Vanish comes out this fall.
