A hidden truth.
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.
This book was kind of recommended by my friend, Liana. Since she's a lover of dragons, she recommended this dragon book to me. It actually isn't that bad.
The cover is like ummm..I dunno. Dragon~y LOL. It didn't really affect if I wanted to read it or not since this was a recommendation prior as a library book I pick out.
Jacinda - Jacinda is a draki, which is basically half human, half dragon. Draki live in this draki community thing and they hardly go to the outside world and deal with humans. But when Jacinda brok a rule and flew out in daylight eveything changes. She gets caught by the hunters who hunt draki.
Will - Will is one of the son of a hunter. He hunts Jacinda, but when he sees Jacinda, he called her beautiful and let her go.
Normally, Jacinda should never have even met Will, but I guess under fate, everything changed and they fell in love. Since Jacinda broke a rule, and she will receive severe punishments, her mom took her and her twin sister, Tera or something that starts with a T away to human world. There, Jacinda surprisingly goes to the same school as Will.
Cassian - Cassian is like the heir to the throne in the draki community. Even though there's no kings, the community is led by Cassian's father. Jacinda was supposed to be his mate. Since she's the only fire breathing dragon there. At first, I was like GO AWAY CASSIAN! You're so annoying.
But after I read book two which was Vanish, I'm like OHMERGERD Cassian. You're kinda hot. Okay. .Yeah. And then I changed from Team Will to Team Cassian. But like I'm not gonna do more reviews for this series cuz I didn't bother reading the third book and I spoiled it for myself. Yeah.. I know. Super bad me.. LOL.
