Cover of Firelight by Sophie Jordan
I Just read a book called Firelight by Sophie Jordan. I found this book to be a little bit repetitive and definitely for a younger (highschool age) audience. But I still had a lot of fun with it.

The story is about a girl named Jacinda, she is a draki. A descendant of dragons, though their true form is dragon they live their lives in human for and only shift into dragon form under the cover of the night sky. All of the draki live together in the mountain, hidden from the hunters. One day, when Jacinda takes a risk she is almost caught and killed by hunters. In order to protect her from the punishment of the pride she must flee. While trying to fit in with a school of normal kids, she feels her draki slipping away, and will do anything to hold on to it. The one person who brings it out in her is the one person who could also kill her. Will. Jacinda can't help but get close to him for fear that is she doesn't her draki will die and she will be human forever.

All in all, this book is a fun read. But i found that it was very repetitive with the whole 'I can't be with Will, but I need to be with him.' Every chapter she would change her mind. Although, the book ended with quite a cliffhanger, therefore I cannot wait until the second one comes out!

If you have some free time, and don't want a tough read, then I recommend this book. It was a really quick read.
