Book Review

I just read a YA fantasy called FIRELIGHT by Sophie Jordan. The main character, Jacinda, is a human who can turn into a type of dragon (draki) and lives in fear of hunters who kill drakis. One day, while flying with her best friend (against the pride's wishes), she meets a hunter who discovers her but doesn't let the other hunters know. When her mother relocates her and her sister to a town in the dry Arizona desert, she encounters the boy, Will, at her new school. Despite knowing that he is a hunter, they are drawn to each other.

The characters are all well-written and this Romeo-Juliet story manages to remain fresh and new. I'm hoping there will be a sequel to this story; the ending hints at one.
