Goodreads Summary: 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.

Review: I’m not a big fan of dragons so I was skeptical when I started reading this book but am so glad I did. I understand that Sophie Jordan is an adult romance writer and I think she has made the transition to YA wonderfully. The dragon mythology is unlike anything I have ever read about. The romance between Jacinda and Will is hot without being inappropriate for a teenaged audience. Will was actually one of my favorite fictional guys of 2010!
I want the sequel. Now. I really need to know what happens next.
Content: Will and Jacinda make out quite a bit and he does sneak into her bedroom through the window, but that’s about it.
