Waiting on Wednesday (13)

Title: Firelight
Author: Sophie Jordan
Publisher: Harper Teen
Date: September 7, 2010

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.

I've heard SO many good things about this book from several of my blogger friends who received ARCs and I was super jealous of them (even though I have too much on my plate right now). This book is unlike any other I've anticipated. I mean we've all read books with shapeshifters, whether it be werewolves or animorphs (some people will get this reference), but to my knowledge this is the first book I've seen where a human can turn into a dragon and back. Sophie was able to turn a relatively simple story idea and make it unique. And for that we thank her. I really cannot wait for this book! It will be in my hands soon enough. I hope you guys are just as excited for it as I am! Make sure you check it out September 7th and let me know what you think!
