Book Review: Firelight by Sophie Jordan (currently only out in ARC)


Author:Sophie Jordan


ARC :]

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 of her kind, she nearly pays with her life, only to be spared by a beautiful stranger sent to hunt those like her. For 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. Gorgeous, elusive Will who stirs her inner draki to life. Although she is irrestibly 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 a human forever. She'll do anything to prevent that. Even if it means getting closer to her most dangerous enemy.

I know the book is an ARC so I won't give away anything. I absolutely just loved the cover. This is one of those books, that even till the last page, made me thirsting for more. The actual Firelight isn't out yet and I'm already excited for the sequel. If there is one that is :3 I just loved the characters. *sigh* Will. Totally a swoon worthy hottie :]. The book had me captivated from the beginning. This world is different, but just as captivating as vampires. A question popped into my mind. Why hadn't Sophie Jordan wrote YA fiction sooner? This book was yummy, I enjoyed it a lot. The funny thing is I try my best to get away from vampires. Yet I always stumble upon vampire books.(haha vampire book magnet.) I know its a craze and I'm deep within it too :3.

Firelight was definitely different from any dragon stories I read. And plus her characters weren't dragons. They were draki. A whole new race of mythical creatures to dive into. If the ARC was mine, I would totally give it away, as a giveaway for others to read because I bet you would enjoy it just as much as I did.

Firelight deserves overall a 9/10. If you can get a hold it it, read it! I'm going to see if it's possible to get myself, my own copy to keep. Because I have to return the one I read to my school library T_T.
