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.Goodreads

My Opinion: I have to say that I was surprised by how much I liked this book. I knew that I would like it from reading the summary of it. I really liked Jacinda. I love that she kept fighting to keep herself alive when her mom and sister were trying to kill her, at least half of her, the part she can not live with out, in her opinion. I also liked Will. He seems like someone that was forced into the situation, just like Jacinda was in going with her family.

I really liked the plot as well. The book starts off with Jacinda being chased and we can feel the adrenaline that she feels. I also really liked the love triangle although it wasn’t really a love triangle.

Can’t wait for the next one in the series called Vanish
