Publisher's Summary

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 drakia 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.

    Story
    "Totally Surprised"

    I know this is a teen story, however I thoroughly enjoyed it and immediately downloaded the next book. I love the direction of the story, and the idea of dragons/drakkie. I would recommend this story for anyone who loves dragons.

    Story
    "Overwrought. Overwritten. Vapid."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I think a younger audience might like this book, but I don't want to recommend it to tweens or teens because it holds up the terrible Twilight fantasy that the ONE MAGICAL BOY is what makes life worth living.

    The book suffers from inconsistent and incomplete world-building (does she have hands or talons? do all dragons have hair?) and frequent repetition of Jacinda's angst about returning to her people, her romantic interest, her love of her mother and her sister. The simply cycles through these feelings until it reaches the moment when all is revealed (a twist that can be guessed halfway through the novel).


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Look, I'm a fan of YA. But this is terrible YA. Worse than Twilight by a factor of 10. Please, please, please delve into another series.

    Story
    "Neat Concept"
    What did you like best about Firelight? What did you like least?

    I was not expecting a romantic novel when I bought this. This ought to be labeled as romance/... The novel could have been half as long with just as much substance were it not for the raging hormones and emotions that I didn't want to hear about. The concept of the half dragon species is really neat though and there could be a lot more done with it.


    Has Firelight turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I am now very cautious when I purchase anything from a genre other than non-fiction. Please have a "romance" warning/label in the information for these books.

    Story
    "Firelight - fun story, challenging audio"
    What did you like best about Firelight? What did you like least?

    I liked the storyline best though it could have been a bit more streamlined. Jordan (author) has Jacinda (our heroine) repeating thoughts to herself more than necessary for this reader - we get it already. The concept is wonderful!!! The continued trouble she gets herself in is near soap-operaesque but the tale captured my imagination and I wanted to find out what happened.

    What I liked least is the narrator - so much so that I had to stop listening a couple of times because she is pressing her voice so much everything had an emphasis that was exhausting! I mean perhaps Plummer (narrator) was representing the intensity teenagers feel as they struggle with growing from children to adults but geez, it seemed Jacinda was either in rebellion, angry, in a state of angst, or swept with guilt...all the time - just by virtue of the tone of the narrator's voice. I will buy the sequel books, but I won't listen to this narrator again.

    Story
    "Interesting new twist on Dragons!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes because it take a new look at dragons. Instead of space, or far off worlds this brings dragons in to our world threw the eyes of a teenage girl. also instead of being from a dragon riders point of view it is from the dragon. intreaging right?


    What other book might you compare Firelight to and why?

    No other because this book and its partner in the series are one of a kind. Just try it!


    Have you listened to any of Therese Plummer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    She is a very steady narator that you can depend on for narating well. I love the way she captures the voices in this book bringing them to life. She does a specialy great job on the male charactors. Vibrent!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    sore, fight, be hunted and all while falling inlove.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is unique with a mix of romance and action that will be sure to keep you interested all the way threw. no extreme fears or violince but keeps you looking forward to the next book wich is great to. can't wait for book three!

    "can I be a drakia please???"

    my 17 year old daughter and I love this series! we have listened to it over and over. each character has such distinct personalities. it's funny because u think that u know what's going to happen, but always there's another twist or turn. u feel empathy for Jacinda and her sister. each book gets better and better. give it a try. it's definitely worth a credit!!

    as a mother that believes books should be rated in my opinion I would rate these books a PG to PG13 not mamy curse word and even though there is a love story it isn't grafic. hope u give it a chance!

    Good story, but no resolution. Even if it is a start to a series, I need some closure.

    Story
    "A fun and enjoyable young adult novel"
    Would you listen to Firelight again? Why?

    Yes. It is a good story with some minor flaws but was very enjoyable.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters and how they interacted with each other. It was believable. The one flaw is that Jacinda was supposed to be so powerful as a fire breather but it never seemed to really help her or make a difference.


    What does Therese Plummer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She has a nice voice that sounded age appropriate and lent a lot of enjoyment to the story.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Dragons are beautiful creatures.


    Any additional comments?

    Any parent should be happy for their child to read this book
