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.

I am a huge fantasy lover and this ranks way up there. the characters are well thought out. It keeps you listening until the very end wanting more and more.
Crazy red head who's head over heels about family, friends and life in general!
I looked at this book for several months before buying it and I wish I would have purchased it sooner. This book has a nice twist on paranormal and a nice love triangle. It is definately a teen book, but I really enjoyed it as something different. I would rank this pretty high on my audible list as I would listen to it again and I NEVER do that!
I think Therese is one of the best readers I've listened to. She just brings the story to life and makes you "feel" each of the characters with her voice.
Several scenes of this book are relatable to both young and old. I definately connected with the self doubt of the characters and the development of the relationships between characters is great. I cried, laughted out loud and was frustrated several times while listening to this book. To me, that is the sign of a good read!
Yes! From the beginning, Sophie Jordan paints a beautiful story with her vivid words.
The next two books...
I would certainly recommend this book to friends/students. While it is an entertaining read it also provides a lot of discussion topics.
Jacinda's moments of introspection.
I thought Therese Plummer was great but I couldn't get into the story. I thought with all the high ratings it would be great but it didn't do anything for me....
