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.

I felt like I kind of heard this story before, not so much heard to before, but everything was predictable. and so many things bothered me and there were also things I liked about the story. there are so many characters i hate in the series it is so funny. i hate the pack or pride whatever it is called, I think it is ridiculous how they treat there own kind( i mean considering the clipping of the wings) everyone belongs to themselves not anyone else. I think the reason I dislike that is because I think it is so unfair and I don’t even know what I would do if I was Jacinda, it kinda makes me reflect on a lot of stuff.

I hated her family, her sister and her mother. Tamra goes on and on(and it seems like every single chapter) about how selfish Jacinda is. If you ask me she’s the most selfish brat in the series. She annoys me so much, everything is about her! and her mother is just as bad, she can’t expect Jacinda to change how it is she is. what she is? to make her kill the draki in her is ridiculous. It is apart of her. You cannot force her and expect her to become accustom to what you’re asking her to do right away. Of course I don’t like the hunters also.

“You want to go out?” he asks suddenly.
I blink. “As in a date?”
“Yes. That’s what a guy usually means when he asks that question.”

The characters I did like were Jacinda, Cassian and Will. I didn’t mind her friends either. I love will and I want to learn more about him and hope this forbidden love story turns out okay for Jacinda and Will. I hope they get their happily ever after without the hunters and the pride interfering their life. Cassian to me is a mysterious character. I don’t even know if i will be hating him yet. Like I have no idea if he will betray Jacinda. I mean will he allow the pride to clip her wings off, and does he really actually lover her or is it as Tamra said, that he wants her just because of what she is, a fire-breather. I also want to know more about Jacinda’s father.

This book was half and half for me, but the last part of the book really sped up for me quite a bit and the ending is a cliffhanger and of course I’ll see what will happen in the next book, but i really hope that it is better than this book, maybe more about Cassian and the pride. i can live without her mother in the next book, but overall this was a pretty good start to a first in a series, and very unique wit the draki/dragons.
