My Rating: 5/5--Incredible! Loved it!
Plot in One Word: Dragons
Good if...you want something intriguing and romantic
My thoughts...This book was mesmerizing, impossible to put down, and one of my new favorites.
You know, I've had it sitting on my shelf for forever now--collecting dust--while something held me back. It's funny because the dragon/shapeshifter plot was the one thing that drew me to this book and simultaneously it was also what turned me away from it. I guess I liked the concept, but felt perhaps it was just too good to be true, hard to live up to. But surprise surprise! That so wasn't the case! This novel exceeded all my expectation and then some. :)
Let me start with the characters. Loved them! Jacinda is fiery and spunky and lovable. While Will is sweet and caring and so swoon-worthy. Then the mythical element to this story. Loved it too! The twists and turns kept coming and certainly kept me on the edge of my seat as a reader. All I know it that I'm putting in an order for the 2nd novel, VANISH, right now! I want to read it as soon as possible! That's how much I loved FIRELIGHT!

TWILIGHT by Stephenie Meyer
**Special note: You might be wondering why I just compared this novel to TWILIGHT. I did it mostly because there were a couple moments of Twilight-ness towards the end of the novel when the romance picked up. If you're a Twilight lover you'll like this, and if you're a Twilight hater...don't worry, overall this book is nothing like Twilight and Jacinda is nothing like Bella. **
