Waiting on Wednesday: Firelight

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

My choice for the week:

Sophie Jordan

Miss Sophie's YA debut mixes fantasy and romance, the paranormal and teenage life. It sounds wonderful. I can't wait to read it! ^_^

The blurb from the author's website:




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 of her kind, she nearly pays with her life, only to be spared by a beautiful stranger sent to hunt those like her. For Jacinda is a draki--a descendant of dragons whose ability to shift into human form is her best defense.

Forced to flee into the mortal world, Jacinda struggles to adapt. The one bright light is Will. Gorgeous, elusive Will who stirs her inner draki to life. Although she is irrestibly 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 a human forever. She'll do anything to prevent that. Even if it means getting closer to her most dangerous enemy.

Mythical powers and irresistible passion ignite in this story of a girl who defies all expectations and whose love crosses an ancient divide ...

Sounds good, doesn't it? ^_^

And another gorgeous cover... (Note the hint of scales near her eyes. I missed those the first several times I saw the cover. In my defense, I only saw really small images. And may not have been wearing my glasses.)

Release Date: 7 September 2010
