At her new school she runs into the same handsome stranger that saved her and is completely drawn to him. She is trying hard to stay away from Will and to adjust to her new life. They are in the middle of the desert and there is nowhere for her to fly. Her mother is encouraging her to not shift anymore to a dragon form and that her body will adjust but it feels like she is slowly dying.
Of course being a YA novel, Jacinda is no longer able to stay way from Will and they start dating. She gets an insider look at the Hunters and meets a few that are completely obsessed with killing her kind.
I liked this book but there are things that really bugged me. I really didn't like the relationship between Jacinda and her mother.... rather I didn't like her mother. She kept telling Jacinda to Kill the dragon part of her and even though Jacinda was having a really Really hard time the mother didn't try to help or some up with a different solution, she seemed very one sided on the side of the daughter that couldn't shift forms. I also had a hard time with the love interest, Will. I am very much an "alpha" lover and I like Cassian. So, I had to get over that issue to really enjoy the book. Overall it is a good story and you don't see a lot of dragon books.
