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
    "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
    "A good read even for adults"

    I was worried that a high school book would be too young for me but it's dark enough to not feel like a little kid's book. The world created by Jordan is fascinating and the characters are very round.

    Story
    "I Love Sophie Jordan"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Firelight to be better than the print version?

    Well, I've never read the print version, but Therese Plummer is such a great narator, I could believe it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The love story, and the refreshing different world Sophie Jordan has created.


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

    Passion! Therese Plummer is one of my all time favorite narators, but she really hit this one out of the park. She captures Jacinda, the main character in a way that I don't think anyone else could.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The thought process in this book is so captivating I think I was pretty much moved throughout.


    Any additional comments?

    One of the best YA novels on the market, better than Twilight and I was a huge Twilight sogga fan.

    To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.

    "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
    "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!

    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

    "Uniquely captivating"
    Any additional comments?

    I've grown up to always be attracted to camping and reading this book was seriously what help the mystery and fascination intact all this time. What lurked in the woods and forest? The ideas of how a species could survive so long makes you question it a little, but in all fairness there is plenty of forested areas that are explored.

    The main character is flawed and creates a kind of happiness in me for it. Her ability although rare and cool, compared with the others does make you wonder how she is regarded so well? So the challenge in getting to know her makes her more intriguing. If you overlook the angsty teen who is placed in a romance-esque setting, where teh world is against her vibe, you can survive the book.
