Book review Firelight By Sophie Jordon

Title: Firelight
Author: Sophie Jordin
UK Publishers: Oxford
Paperback: 272
UK release date: March 3rd 2011
Summary: 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.

Sophie Jordin has brought Draki to the world of Vampires, Werewolves, Witches, Angels and Shadowhunters and made it her own. This book has got to be the most romantic book I have read in a long time. Each chapter, each page and each line had me crying, sighing and smiling. Ive never had a book touch me in such a way that had me thinking about it days after imagening what could of happened...and what would of happened.

The characters in this novel stand out so much. Move over Edward Cullen move over Jace Wayland hello Will! Another smoldering lead guy. One who you could definantly fall in love with. From his unconditional love to his smoldering good looks. Jacinda oh Jacinda another girl you can relate to from having a annoying mother who wont let her do anything to just wanting to be herself but cant. With Sophies amazing writing you can really feel her emotion all the way through the book.
The one scene that stood out the most for me is actually the first scene between Jacinda and Will that little moment between them just set the whole scene of the book for me it was small but so touching. The realtionship between Will and Jacinda is beautiful I love how the roles have swapped. In most of the books I have read its usually the guy trying really hard to hide who he is from the girl he loves but its the other way around and I find this really refreshing.

The quality of writing is fantastic the orginality, the pace, and the fluidity.The way she describes the draki is so “beautiful” as Will would say. Each time I read the description of Jacindas firey skin I'd turn to the front cover and admire it. This book definanlty makes you read on and on from the beginning till the end. Ive never read a book so quick in my life. Just because I wanted to know what happens next. The plot is definanlty something that I loved most about this book the whole on the run plot was fantastic. Pretending to be human just to fit in school so Jacinda her sister and her mother would'nt be found by their pride. This kept me on edge.

I cannot wait for the second book in this series to be released in the UK and I am sure the rest of the series will be just as fantastic. So Thanks Sophie for your magical novel. It will take pride in place on my bookshelf with the stories I will never forget.
