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 forces 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 the gorgeous, elusive 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.
Mythical powers and breathtaking romance ignite in this story of a girl who defies all expectations and whose love crosses an ancient divide, from New York Times bestselling author Sophie Jordan.
Firelight is the first book in a dragon shifter fantasy by author Sophie Jordan. A story about two sisters, one who hides a dragon inside the other human: Jacinda is our firebreather and is rare as a firebreather has not been seen in a long time. The issue with being rare is that she will soon be trapped in her family clan as a breeder to form a new line of firebreather dragons. To save her daughter, her mother steals away her sister and hides them in the human world, in a desert, so Jacinda’s dragon inside will become dormant. Jacinda doesn’t want to be a breeder; she doesn’t want to be human. She wants to embrace her dragon side in a safe place. Enter the love interest, a dragon shifter from the clan and one who is human and from a family who hunts her kind—a fantastic dragon shifter tale with twists and surprises that will keep you guessing until the end.
