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.

    "Try hard"
    What would have made Firelight better?

    Its seems a little try hard, like it's trying to get the same market as twilight and vampire academy, but it doesn't do as well. Also it's trying to hook the reader into a series but could definitely leave it.


    What could Sophie Jordan have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Character development and different characters, less of the forbidden love


    Did Therese Plummer do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    I felt she did a great job

    "Great Book"
    What did you love best about Firelight?

    The reader's voice! The story to!


    What other book might you compare Firelight to and why?

    It's very different from any other book I have read.


    Which character – as performed by Therese Plummer – was your favorite?

    I suppose the main character.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was very new to me and very good. I couldn't stop listening.

    Story
    "Fresh Subject"
    What did you like about this audiobook?

    Fresh subject and good story, but writing is too descriptive. Nothing is left to the imagination and your emotions are not allowed to formulate. I had to turn off sometimes and only listen for short time because of being too detailed. The words took over the story and became overwhelming.


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    Interested subject - very creative.


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    Much too detailed and descriptive - Too many words took away from the story and became distracting.


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    The Narrator did an excellent job. Offering a good distinction between the male and female voices.

    Story
    "I thought the series would get better"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No. Unless you like YA reads, I wouldn't get this.


    Would you recommend Firelight to your friends? Why or why not?

    No. As the first in the series, I thought it would improve as the story went along. It didn't.


    What aspect of Therese Plummer’s performance would you have changed?

    She couldn't have done anything with the story to make it better. You read the words that are written.


    Did Firelight inspire you to do anything?

    I took a chance on the second book in the series ... I don't recommend you do that. I didn't bother to finish it because it dragged on and on. I guess I was inspired not to waste anymore time on it.

    Story
    "Dragons, highschool angst, and teen romance, Oh my"
    What would have made Firelight better?

    Some progress to maturity in the main character.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Sophie Jordan again?

    No.


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

    The voice of the main character.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment.


    Any additional comments?

    First person narrative of a young girl ( and a very self-centered, and immature one at that) set against a faint magical background that is not well defined. No growth in the main character. No sign that any of the disastrous actions that she makes has any effect on her at all.

    The reader did a nice job with the material she was given, the recording was well done, sound quality nice, and the small bits of Michael Whelan music were welcome.

    Story
    "Unique, Compelling, Great Book!"

    over all I found this a very good book.
    The story was different enough to keep me guessing from start to finish, and with each new plot development it was like another piece of the story would unfold.

    Firelight was written for the young adult readers and because of this it doesn't have the graphic content in either sex or language (which for me was a good thing (although there are some steamy kisses...wow)) even though this is a YA book adults will enjoy it also.

    the story itself was compelling and thought provoking making me ask questions like
    "is it right to try to fit into the "norm" just to please those we love?"
    "what price do I pay or make my kids pay (or anyone really) when we can't except ourselves and others for who and what they are?" (does that mean I'm giving away pieces of MY soul?)
    " just because someone is special or has unique gifts does that mean that person automatically has no say in the course their life must take... are they nothing more than their gifts... or should they be allowed to be themselves and choose their own path, even if its not what everyone else thinks they should do or become?"

    while I enjoyed the story I felt that the narration dragged (or maybe there was just an unnecessary amount of words to tell the story) and that I could've read the book myself in half the time it took to listen to.

    and last but not least... expect a cliffhanger end... but don't worry too much because there are 2 more book in the series (which I've not yet read but have great hopes for.)

    "Great, easy read.....really enjoyed it"
    Where does Firelight rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    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!


    What about Therese Plummer???s performance did you like?

    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.


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

    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!
