4 years ago

Description: 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 is forced to flee into the mortal world with her family, Jacinda struggles to adapt to her new surroundings. The only bright light is 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 awayif 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.

Review: When I read the description for this book it instantly peeked my interest, because, of all the supernatural beings written about in YA dragons are not frontrunners. After reading all the positive reviews I picked this book up and it really did draw me in at fist but slowly I lost interest.

The first two chapters were intensely captivating and I thought I`d get to read more about Jacinda`s life as a dragon creature. However when Jacinda becomes a school girl the book really just focuses on the social teen aspects of high school and Jacinda and Will`s star-crossed relationship. For me the story loses its spark after the first couple of chapters.

The book was pretty predictable at times and as for the world-building, there isn`t much of it. While there is some mention of clans outside of Jacinda`s there is not enough and the history of draki really isnt there, which was something I was hoping would be there.

Personally I was pretty let down by this book; it had such great potential that it didnt live up to so Im going to give this book 2/5
