GoodReads Info:

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.

My Thoughts: (I gave this book 4 Stars)

Well first of all I love the cover of this book. So beautiful and the colors are perfect. The cover of firelight is what made me want to read the book. I was hooked on Firelight on the first page. 
Jacinda who is a fire dragon shape-shifter lives in a world were her life has always been decided for her and she know these are the right things for her. After she gets in some trouble her Mom moves her and her sister away from there home land and everyone she knows. 

Jacinda's mom wants nothing to ever do with them again although she is a draki as well. She has lost her draki inside her, and wants nothing more than to see her  two daughter be happy in there new city away from the pack. 

Jacinda is anything but happy, she wants her draki to never die and longs to fly but cant now without being seen.  
Jacinda meets will who is drawn to her and she is coming to like him as well, but she knows he is mad news. Will is a poacher along with his family. Will 
Jacinda and will find a way to be together even know everyone seems to be pulling them apart. 

I found this book to move fast and wanting to keep reading even I was busy with something else. The Love story between 
Jacinda and Will was fun to read about and makes me so want to read what will happen next...
