Firelight (Draki, #1) by Sophie Jordan
Young Adult – September 7th 2010 by Harper Teen
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 love the idea of this universe, love that the book includes dragons, and absolutely love this cover! I’m also really interested in seeing what a romance-turned-YA-writer will come up with, as I’ve only really see UF-turned-YA-writers on the shelves so far.
