First Pages: Firelight by Sophie Jordan

Alrighty, as I said in my little update post on Teasers, I intend to share with you some of the first pages of the books I will be reviewing at some point (probably), but not necessarily soon (ie. the hugemongous ALA haul).  I'm starting with Firelight, which is one I was pretty excited about getting.  There is a flub; I've been having trouble with my webcam, so I had to record this on my camera, and didn't want to rerecord it, so I'm afraid you're just going to have to deal with the flub.  Also, please note this is an ARC, so this first page may not be the same as the final first page.  Um, also...*
(*Also, holy boob-shot, Batman!  Sorry about that.  But at least it gets covered with a book fairly quickly...)

With her rare ability to breathe fire, Jacinda is special even among the draki—the descendants of dragons who can shift between human and dragon forms. But when Jacinda’s rebelliousness leads her family to flee into the human world, she struggles to adapt, even as her draki spirit fades. The one thing that revives it is Will, whose family hunts her kind. Jacinda can’t resist getting closer to him, even though she knows she’s risking not only her life but the draki’s most closely guarded secret.


  1. yay for Firelight, I'm excited to read it. I think its on its way to me right now through a book tour, somewhere out in the wild blue yonder of the USPS system...

    also, nice rack ;)

  2. Nice boob shot. :)

    I read Firelight a few weeks ago, and I enjoyed it, mostly. I had a few issues, but overall, more good than bad. And the cover is SO pretty! It's shiny...

  3. I dont have the opportunity to read Fireflight yet but I will soon. Hey, I have a blog award to pass on to you. Hope you like it.


  4. I love this idea!

    OMG you are so funny with the "boob shot" comment. Hey, I'm far less 'blessed' and only envy you.

    This reading aloud is great - you have a lovely speaking voice and the description of her shifting was beautiful - good choice. Thanks - it's nice to get a sense of the writing/book through a live read! I'm looking forward to your review!
