Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 7 Up–Jacinda is extraordinary–even for a draki (descendants of dragons who can shift into human form): she is a fire-breather. Unique and invaluable to her “pride,” the 16-year-old is kept on a short leash, and it has already been ordained that she will mate with the alpha male, Cassian. Jacinda's determination to do things her own way finds her nearly captured by dragon hunters, but a surprisingly kind young hunter named Will allows her to escape. Rather than suffer the pride's punishment for her daughter's risky behavior, Jacinda's mother decides the family should flee to live among regular humans. Masquerading as a typical high school student would bury Jacinda's draki nature until it died out. When Will turns out to be a classmate, Jacinda finds that her inexplicable attraction to him keeps her feel of fire and flight alive. Being near a hunter is the most dangerous choice Jacinda can make, yet her desire for him–and need to preserve her inner dragon–cannot be ignored. This distinctive twist on the popular supernatural romance theme will appeal to fans of the genre, even if a lack of resolution at this story's culmination may frustrate some readers. “Twilight” fans ready to move beyond vampires will jump right in.–Tara Kehoe, Plainsboro Public Library, NJα(c) Copyright 2010.

From Booklist

Descended from dragons, the draki's ability to appear human protects them from hunters. Jacinda lives with her pride in the Cascades, but she chafes under her special status as the only fire-breather in hundreds of years. Recklessly breaking the “no-fly” rule, she attracts hunters; mercifully, one hunter, a beautiful boy who looks upon her with wonder, lets her escape. After this, the pride intends to hobble her rebelliousness, and Jacinda is forced to flee. But while twin sister Tamra, who never manifested and was shunned, is happy with the move, Jacinda feels only anguish within Nevada's desert climate. Then she meets Will and, despite recognizing him as the same draki hunter, feels herself come alive. Jordan's compelling addition to the supernatural star-crossed lovers theme is equal parts taut suspense and sensuous romance, with visceral writing and believable relationships among characters, particularly among Jacinda's family. A foreshadowed twist and a thrilling confrontation in the end pages leave Jacinda heartbroken and in trouble, and readers will howl for more. Grades 8-12. --Krista Hutley

I loved the premise of this book and thought it sounded incredibly unique, but unfortunately the story fell short. It started out with a lot of action, which I loved, and I really liked reading about Jacinda and her pride. But after a few chapters, this unique story about draki's turned into a "new girl in town meets hot distant boy at school" story and it lost all uniqueness it had going for it. The new girl storyline has been done so many times! I was more interested in the draki pride and I wanted this book to be more about that then a school story about a teen with a supernatural talent.

The bits we got about the pride, I loved, and I really wish that had been the main focus of the book. But we barely even get to see them or find out much about them which I found disappointing. Jacinda is the narrator and her story mainly revolves around Will, how she's attracted to him but shouldn't be, and how she doesn't want to lose her draki. She's a pretty whiny character throughout and she waffles back and forth in her decision making which is frustrating for the reader.

I didn't find any of the characters well rounded and I felt we never got to know anyone-even Jacinda. Her twin sister Tamra and her mom felt like she was just there for Jacinda to whine about. There were several characters that were mentioned, talked about a bit or even talked to in one scene but never did much. It felt like they were just there as an idea in the first draft but then forgotten about and never full developed. I would have liked to see more from Xander, Will's cousin-we're told to be afraid of him, but never really are shown why. And I thought there was potential to develop a great relationship between Jacinda and her elderly neighbor, but that's only hinted at and not delved into any further.

I wanted to like this book. The story seemed interesting and the first two chapters were good,up to where Jacinda and Will met had the potential to be a good read.But unfortunately, it was misleading and I wasted my time hoping it would get better.The the more I read this book, the less I liked Jacinda. Her interactions with mostly everyone was childish and selfish. The whole thing with her and Will was so annoying. She couldn't make up her mind about him, kisses him one moment and then pushes him away the next. I stopped reading this book after about 20 chapters and up to this point, most of the book took place in high school and her indecision over this. Her actions and thoughts made no sense. I seriously wanted to slap this girl.For example, she runs 7 miles to Will house to retrieve a t-shirt because her blood stain on his shirt will turn a color which will identify her as a draki. And she knows Will family is hunting her race. Her stupidity just gets worst when she gets invited into the house. I cannot believe an author can create such an idiotic character. Had to stop reading because I could not take this story or girl anymore.

I was worried that after reading Mockingjay I wouldn't find something I loved as much but Sophie Jordan has made that happen with Firelight! So much intensity and romance make Firelight a perfect read!

Jacinda is a unique individual because not only is she draki, descendants of dragons, but she is also the first fire breather in 400 years. While her tribe is planning her future her mother comes up with a plan of her own, but the only thing these plans have in common is that neither is what Jacinda wants.

In an attempt at a little freedom Jacinda sneaks out to fly at sunrise. Only flying during the day is prohibited for fear of exposure. While in flight Jacinda is ambushed by a group of hunters who quickly corner her in a cave. A young hunter is sent in to find her and he simply lets her go.

Jacinda risking her life has set the tribe's plans into motion and her mother reacts by fleeing with Jacinda and her twin Tamra to start over in a new city as humans. Tamra, who never manifested as a draki, is thrilled to have a chance at a normal life while Jacinda just goes along with what her mother chooses.

Her mother chooses a desert city knowing that Jacinda's inner draki could not survive and Jacinda will never change into a draki again. Jacinda's mother and sister made the rebellious teen in me yell and scream. Life in the desert isn't all bad when Jacinda finds out that Will, the hunter who let her go, is at the same school. (SWOON) Will is drawn to Jacinda but doesn't know why he feels so connected to her. (Double Swoon) Just as Jacinda is finding a balance Cassian, a guy from her tribe, has found her and wants to bring her back to her rightful home.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Exceptional, distinct and invigorating, Firelight is a fantastic mix of romance, angst and the supernatural. The world Jordan has created is phenomenal, filled with detail and such intense thought has clearly gone into everything about it. From the descriptions of Jacinda's drake side to the way she reacts in different environments to the emotions she feels, Jordan includes everything seamlessly.

Jacinda is a character completely unlike any other, based in what she physically is. A dragon at her core, Jacinda and her kind have the ability to morph into humans to blend. As a dragon, she is still coherent and the same girl but there is a stark contrast between Jacinda's mind as part of her pride and Jacinda thrust out into the human world. Jordan handles this switch perfectly, infusing a high amount of angst and discomfort. Jacinda battles between a maturity that lets her understand why she has to be in a human school with her wants, desires and even needs. Her struggles are intense and breathtaking, and the constant tug and pull of her body in response to different people and situations comes across fantastically.

Will is as divergent as Jacinda, tormented and caught by the nature of his family. He holds a certain intensity that is memorable and appealing, struggling against being a hunter and what it means. His first encounter with Jacinda is written beautifully, and the ensuing push and pull of their connection and relationship drives a strong portion of the book. In unexpected and heartfelt ways, the couple are united and understand each other in ways others cannot.

The other supporting characters are convoluted and as well developed as the main characters.
