A hidden truth. Mortal enemies. Doomed love.
Marked as special at an early age, Jacinda knows her every move is watched. But she longs for freedom to make her own choices. When she breaks the most sacred tenet among her kind, she nearly pays with her life. Until a beautiful stranger saves her. A stranger who was sent to hunt those like her. For Jacinda is a draki—a descendant of dragons whose greatest defense is her secret ability to shift into human form.
Forced to flee into the mortal world with her family, Jacinda struggles to adapt to her new surroundings. The only bright light is Will. Gorgeous, elusive Will who stirs her inner draki to life. Although she is irresistibly drawn to him, Jacinda knows Will's dark secret: He and his family are hunters. She should avoid him at all costs. But her inner draki is slowly slipping away—if it dies she will be left as a human forever. She'll do anything to prevent that. Even if it means getting closer to her most dangerous enemy.
Mythical powers and breathtaking romance ignite in this story of a girl who defies all expectations and whose love crosses an ancient divide.
Okay, I've wanted to read this book for a while. When I won with, I was so happy. I received it on Tuesday, and I ended up reading it in a couple of hours the next day.
I loved this story. A love supposed to be impossible, yet they each fall for the other. It is a really cute story, and I love the draki factor. I really like this idea, as that was original. Even if I could guess where everything was going, I still had to read it to be sure. I really enjoyed it. The ending made me sad, and now I really want to read Vanish, which makes me even sadder because it won’t come out soon. I’ll have to be patient.
I really liked Jacinda. She is strong and she knows what she wants. Yet, she still tries her best to do things that will protect her family, even thought it is the complete opposite of what she wants. Her sister ended annoying me at the end. I understand that she may have felt neglected while living in the pride, but still, she ends up acting like a bitch with her sister. Will made me smile and sigh a lot. He is so amazing. Yeah, he may be a hunter, but still, there’s a really sweet side of him, a side that made me sigh a lot.
I really enjoy Sophie Jordan’s style. It really got me into the story. It was easy to read, and I just can’t wait to read more from her. Bring me some more draki soon!
This deserves a really nice 5/5!
