"With her rare ability to breathe fire, Jacinda is special even among the draki—the descendants of dragons who can shift between human and dragon forms. But when Jacinda’s rebelliousness leads her family to flee into the human world, she struggles to adapt, even as her draki spirit fades. The one thing that revives it is Will, whose family hunts her kind. Jacinda can’t resist getting closer to him, even though she knows she’s risking not only her life but the draki’s most closely guarded secret."

Holy Moly! This book is so hott is make me want to manifest. From the very first page I was stunned. I love this book and the whole plot. Everything was alive, juicy, and just overflowing with non-stop goodness.
 Jacinda, I loved her. She is so strong yet sacrificed everything she could to help out her family. The drama, plot everything was just amazing to read.

Jacinda is a Draki. Not just any draki but a the only fire breather to be born in over 500 years! That makes her the most coveted in her pride. After playing around and almost getting caught, serious consequences comes her way. In order to save her from that, her mother takes her away. Jacinda thinks she has lost it all, when in fact she just gained the one thing she wanted most.

The tension in this was book was intense. I could literally feel my blood pressure rising. At times I had to set the book down just to chill out for a bit. But this book....this book was out of this world. What I like most about it was that it was different. Like most paranormal books that are coming out, new ideas are spawning and that makes me giddy. I love to read a book that is not only different, but well written.

Firelight lit my fire. It made me see into the world of Jacinda's. And the love that is in it was perfect. Absolutely perfect. The ending was OMG! Big time. I had a hissy fit and was fighting for Jacinda. All I know is that this book totally rock my socks off!

I give it 5 BITES!

Happy Reading!


  1. I really enjoyed this one as well and thought the draki element was really refreshing. I'm hoping we get to learn more about them in book 2 because I loved what little snippets of their world we got in this one. And the ending was intense:)

  2. I want to read this book so badly, I'm excited to see how they do the movie for it as well. Good review.

  3. I loved this one too. I just hated the ending. I hate cliffhangers!

  4. I'm about to start reading this one in a few hours when I get off work. I'm so excited for it!!!

  5. Hey - I just reviewed Firelight too. Isn't it great? I loved that it was so different with the draki.

  6. This book sounds SO good! I need to get to a store or libray! Thanks for posting!

  7. Hmmm, wow. I really had no interest in reading it...until now! : )

  8. This one is really close to the top of my Wish List. I've heard a lot about it and find the premise very interesting. Dragons have kind of been left out when it comes to the current paranormal craze... I like it!

    Great review!

  9. I loved it too! I devoured book 2 and can't wait for the next one!
