Marked as special at an early age, Jacinda knows her every move is watched.
She longs for the freedom to make her own choices, but when she breaks the 'no flying' rule, 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 defence is her secret ability to shift into human form. And her rare ability to breathe fire makes her desirable, and important, to the survival of the draki. Forced to flee into the mortal world with her family, Jacinda struggles to adapt to her new surroundings.
There she meets 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 slipping away, and 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 by wyvernfriend
When Jacinda first meets Will he's literally hunting her. She's a Dragon who can shape-shift into human shape and he's part of a family who hunt her kind. However he saves her. However this has consequences and Jacinda and her twin Tamra have to run away with their mother. Tamra can't change to dragon-form but Jacinda is a fire-breathing dragon, rare in the community and wanted to breed.They move to a desert town, where it will be harder for Jacinda to change, where after a while she might lose the ability and where, coincidentally, the family of hunters lives.Full of teen angst and a lack of communication, shows potential but somehow it needed more.
