Firelight (Firelight Series)

Firelight (Firelight Series) - The story is believable, from the very start. One of my concerns going in, was that the author wouldn't have been able to pull off a dragon shifter. It's a unique concept, and Sophie Jordan describes it so vividly, you can picture it all happening.Sophie Jordan created her own mythological world, that sets its self apart from every other supernatural world that I have ever read about. This is a risk, because if you can't make it believable, people simply won't buy into it. But I never once found myself doubting anything. Sophie Jordan paints this picture with perfection!Jacinda and Tamra are twins, but Tamra never manifests. So she is basically a human. It's difficult for me to convey how Jacinda and Tamra are so different, and yet so very similar. They're both very passionate about what they want, and while it's two completely different things, they seem to handle it the same way. Like twins (because they are). Make sense? If not, it will when you read it.Will is a draki hunter, but is still drawn to Jacinda in a magical way. He is an adorable character, and I completely understand why Jacinda is drawn to him.Jacinda's mother really ticked me off. She claimed she was wanting to do what was best for her daughters, but in my mind, she was nothing but selfish. She seemed to care about petty things like cheerleading when it came to Tamra, but Jacinda is literally dying inside, and her mother wants this. I couldn't understand her reasoning at all. Tamra felt the same, but I felt differently about her. While I think she could've been more understanding, for the first time in her life, she was slightly happy. So I understood her actions.The ending! I cannot wait for Vanish. The ending of Firelight leaves you dying for more!!
