Special Note: ARC Review
With her rare ability to breathe fire, Jacinda is special even among the draki—the descendants of dragons who can shift between human and dragon forms. But when Jacinda’s rebelliousness leads her family to flee into the human world, she struggles to adapt, even as her draki spirit fades. The one thing that revives it is Will, whose family hunts her kind. Jacinda can’t resist getting closer to him, even though she knows she’s risking not only her life but the draki’s most closely guarded secret.
There were tons of things I loved about this novel. I especially liked how from page one you see Jacinda not only transform into her fire-breathing draki form, but you see she's a bit rebellious too. The plot thickens when you discover Jacinda is promised to the leader of the pride's son. Nothing like an arranged marriage to make you root for a guy who really loves her to swoop in and save her, which is where Will comes in. *Sigh* Will and Jacinda make an awesome couple! When you first meet Will it's hard to tell if is a good guy or not because he's a draki hunter, but that doesn't take away from his sexiness.
I love the spin on dragons in this novel and the romance pushes this story to an awesome level. I really liked this one!
