Paranormal romance with a unique and exciting twist that will have teen and YA readers and readers of paranormal thrilled for something new and different. It's intense, unputdownable and a heart-pounding adventure with incredibly vivid characters that you feel utterly drawn to. As a draki, a descendant of dragons whose greatest defence is her secret ability to shift into human form, Jacinda is forced to live in the mortal world, the one thing that makes her life bearable is Will. She knows she should avoid him at all costs, for Will and his family hunt her kind. But the passion he stirs within her can't be ignored, even if it means risking her life ...

Synopsis

Firelight by Sophie Jordan

Marked as special at an early age, Jacinda knows her every move is watched. She longs for the freedom to make her own choices, but when she breaks the 'no flying' rule, 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 defence is her secret ability to shift into human form. And her rare ability to breathe fire makes her desirable, and important, to the survival of the draki. Forced to flee into the mortal world with her family, Jacinda struggles to adapt to her new surroundings. There she meets 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 slipping away, and 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.

'Just surrender to the sizzle.' - Kirkus Reviews

'The chemistry between Jacinda and Will sizzles on the page ... if it was possible, I'm sure my book would have caught fire.' - WondrousReads.com
