A hidden truth.
Mortal enemies.
Doomed love.

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.

Dragons. Forbidden love. Suspense. What isn't there to love? Unfortunately for me, not enough.

Jacinda is a draki, which a dragon descendant. One wrong move and it forces her mother to flee with her and her twin sister. In this new town with no other drakis, she meets Will -- a dragon hunter. It is pretty much love at first sight for them, but seem impossible due to her being a draki and him a hunter of her kind.

I loved the idea of the story. It wasn't that is was that dreadful, I just couldn't read it any more. I got halfway through the book and it mostly consisted of Jacinda whining about going back home or whining about how she wants/needs Will and how she doesn't want/need him. I thought it started off pretty good and I was getting pretty into it but couldn't deal with any more of the whining (sorry for those who love this book!).

What I give this book:

I don't know why I ended up liking this one, what with all the whining and love at first sight crap, but, in the end, I kinda liked it. I'm still baffled.

I'm happy if someone else liked it, I just didn't have the patience for it. I loved the whole draki thing but felt it was overshadowed by her whining about stuff.
