GREAT STORY! READ THE ABRIDGED VERSION THOUGH
I've never reviewed a book before, but I've decided to review this one because while I LOVED the story and the characters, the writer repeated herself sooooo much that halfway through the book I had to skip to the end because it started to grate on my nerves listening to the same situations and feelings repeated over and over and over again. It seemed as though with each new event I had to listen to the protagonist re-tell every feeling and event from the previous pages. It was as if the author thought that I was stupid so she had to repeat everything all the time just in case I couldn’t remember. I think that the writer could take out about a fourth of the book and that would make it better. I'm surprised that her editor didn't help her cut some or a lot of the rehashing just to help the story move along. This is the first book that I believe the 'abridged' version would be an improvement on the ‘unabridged’. BTW, I LOVED the Narrarator Therese Plummer!

Took my breath away
Firelight has been the most captivating and refreshing YA novel I've read for a long time. It is a splendid mixture of fantasy, supernatural and Romance. Especially the Romance. I was intrigued by how intense and intoxicating the romance could be. I read hundreds of YA paranormal romance, many of them I quickly dismissed because they sounded so cheesy, so shallow, so hollow, so empty and so.....plz, not this again!!! That won't ever happen in Firelight. I have rarely felt so connect with a character before. Jacinda is a distinctive individual, a heroine you will come to like. Her emotions, her desires, her fears.....they were still so vivid in my mind that it's hard to get over. All the unique characters, the fluid and beautiful writings, the intense details made this book addictive and irresistible! I was completely and helplessly sucked in.
