The Firelight trilogy follows the story of Jacinda, a teenage girl with the ability to manifest into a dragon. She lives with her mother, who hasn’t manifested in years and sister Tamra, who has never had the ability to manifest at all, with the rest of their pride who call themselves “Draki.”  Jacinda has a special ability that no Draki in the pride has had for generations- the ability to breathe fire. Because of this, the pride’s leader wants to have Jacinda and his son Cassian married. But when Jacinda is almost captured by Hunters, humans who want to run experiments on the “mythical creatures” she meets Will, a human boy who brings her inner Draki to life.

Shortly after her near-death encounter with the hunters, Jacinda’s mother runs away from the pride with Tamra, and drags Jacinda with them. Jacinda is forced to blend into the human world, and by doing so she is slowly losing her ability to manifest- which will leave her a human like her mother. But then she finds Will again, and even thinking about him makes her begin to manifest. Although most of his family is Hunters, she needs to stay close to him if her Draki is going to survive. That is, until Cassian finds her and tries to bring her back to the pride.

The second and third books are about Jacinda fighting to keep Will, against all the odds that are against them, along with lots of action and shocking endings.

This trilogy was well written, gripping, and I couldn’t put it down. It was a cross between fantasy and romance, but with enough action so you would never get bored. Something new happened in every chapter. I would recommend this to anyone who loves a strong main female character, and a good fantasy book. The only thing that I didn’t really like was at the end of the third book, there are a lot of unanswered questions that are really hard to infer.

Sophie Jordan also has a Firelight Novella out called Breathless, which tells the story of Jacinda’s best friend Az, and how she falls in love with a human named Tate. Sophie Jordan also writes Historical romance and Paranormal Romance novels.
