Overview

A dangerous journey.
Shattered bonds.
Undying passion.

Jacinda was supposed to marry Cassian, the prince of her pride, but instead she defied all the rules and fell in love with Will—a human and, worse, a hunter. Their forbidden romance led to the capture of Cassian's sister, Miram. Weighed down by guilt, Jacinda ventures deep into the heart of enemy territory to rescue her, posing as a prisoner herself. Only once she assumes that disguise, things quickly spiral out of control. Even if Will and Cassian can carry out their part of the plan, there's no guarantee they'll all make it out alive. But what Jacinda never could have foreseen is that escaping would be only the beginning. . . .

Loyalties are tested and sacrifices made in the explosive conclusion to Sophie Jordan's Firelight trilogy.

Editorial Reviews

Kiersten White
Praise for Firelight:“Firelight soars to dizzying heights, combining forbidden love, scorching romance, and thrilling danger.”
Kerrelyn Sparks

Booklist
Praise for FIRELIGHT “Jordan’s compelling addition to the supernatural star-crossed lovers theme is equal parts taut suspense and sensuous romance.”
Romantic Times Starred Review
Praise for FIRELIGHT “Jordan executes a refreshing and exciting tale of forbidden supernatural love and desire. Jacinda is strong and spunky, just like her story. Readers won’t be able to put down this remarkable YA debut. An ethereal series start, Firelight should not be missed.”
Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
Praise for FIRELIGHT “Jacinda and Will’s intensely sexy scenes together will leave romance readers fired up for the planned sequel.”
Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
Praise for FIRELIGHT “Jacinda and Will's intensely sexy scenes together will leave romance readers fired up for the planned sequel.”
Children's Literature - Allison Fetters
The energy of the book is instantly felt as protagonist Jacinda is faced with what seems to be a difficult task. She must allow herself to be captured by the enkros in order to rescue Cassian's sister, Miram. Once imprisoned, Jacinda begins to wonder if the others have failed in their part of the rescue mission, but just in time, they arrive. After escaping, Jacinda and her friends are on the run while constantly pursued by hunters. It soon becomes obvious they will all have to return to the pride for a resolution to even be possible. The love triangle between Will, Cassian, and Jacinda is present, but by the end, the characters arrive to a pleasing outcome. The energy of the book is maintained from beginning to end and keeps the reader engaged. Although this book is a part of a series, it can easily be read on its own without the reader feeling lost. The world of the draki, as presented here, is as exciting as it is mysterious. Reviewer: Allison Fetters
VOYA - Nancy K. Wallace
Third in the Firelight trilogy, this book opens as Jacinda fakes capture at the enkros stronghold in order to allow Cassian and Will to rescue Cassian's sister, Miram. Jacinda, Miram, and Cassian are draki—creatures that appear human but can also transform into dragons. They are hunted mercilessly by humans, who deliver them to the enkros for experimentation. In Firelight (HarperCollins, 2010/Voya October 2010), Jacinda falls in love with Will, a human, who is also part of a family of hunters. Jacinda has been promised to Cassian, a prominent draki male. Her ambivalent feelings toward Cassian and Will dominate the second the book, Vanish (HarperCollins, 2012/Voya February 2012). Their plan to rescue Miram results in the release of many other imprisoned draki and a final showdown with Will's family, who attempts their recapture. Not everyone survives, and startling secrets are revealed that change the draki hierarchy forever. A complicated plot precludes a concise synopsis. This third book definitely does not stand alone but provides a nail-biting climax for the series. The author neatly places the clandestine society of the draki in our world and time, lending authenticity to the story. The characters are clearly drawn and believable. Teens will identify with Jacinda's rivalry with her twin sister, Tamra, and her constant struggles against the restraints of her society. The tense love triangle between Jacinda, Cassian, and Will and the secret draki culture will appeal to Twilight fans. Fast paced, innovative, and exciting, these books sell themselves. This strong young adult series deserves a place in both public and high school libraries. Reviewer: Nancy K. Wallace
Kirkus Reviews
This conclusion to the Firelight trilogy continues the conflict between a dragon-girl and those who hunt her kind. Jacinda is a draki, a being that can morph from human form into a fire-breathing, flying dragonlike creature. She has her own society but wants to escape it with her human boyfriend, Will, who comes from a family that hunts the draki. This installment begins with Jacinda intentionally caught and imprisoned in an underground facility in which rather nasty scientists do research on draki. She plots with Will and her enforced mate, Cassian, to escape. Once the attack commences, exciting scenes ensue as the group fights their way out with a new, dangerous draki in tow. Jordan keeps the focus mostly on action even as she weaves in the forbidden-romance elements required by this genre, although the romantic conflict was mostly resolved in the previous installment. Plenty of rivalries among Jacinda and other draki spice things up. Two new characters, Deghan, the long-imprisoned draki, and little Lia appeal, although the story allows Lia's fate to dangle unresolved. Chase scenes, near-captures and a late-game betrayal or two keep the narrative moving. Except for the subplot regarding Lia, everything comes to an ending that will satisfy readers. New readers would best start with the beginning of the trilogy. Entertaining enough. (Paranormal suspense. 12 & up)

    OhMyWill!

    Beautiful cover! It's nice to see that all of the covers in this series have been consistent. It would've been really cool to have both Jacinda and Tamra on this one but it's still fabulous! This is a heart pounding, chest clutching, action packed conclusion to the Firelight trilogy and I absolutely loved it! Hidden picks up right where Vanish leaves off with Will, Cassian and Tamra all preparing to send Jacinda into the enkros compound in an effort to rescue Miriam. The plan is a dangerous one with an unexpected outcome that left me breathless and crying ALL THE TEARS. Jacinda and Will are trying their best to be together but are met with resistance at every turn, whether it's the bonding with Cassian or her issues with the pride. But Will (who is just as perfect as ever IMHO) can only be patient for so long and Jacinda will have to decide what's more important, their future or her need for answers. (Correct answer is: WILL.Every.Time.) Jacinda is fearless in her efforts to protect those she loves and her selflessness is to be praised. It's her willingness to put others first all the time that could end up costing her what she wants the most though. She and Will have known from the start that their relationship is a complicated one and cherish whatever quiet moments they have together which are both heart-achingly tender and bittersweet, but is it enough? I spent the better part of Firelight and Vanish not a fan of Cassian. Regardless of his hotness, I felt he was overbearing, rude and presumptuous of what his relationship with Jacinda should be but all that changed in Hidden. He still tends towards the strong, silent type but in this book, we finally get to see the real Cassian, the whole man (or should I say, drakai?) and you know, I kinda fell in love with him. ;) Tamra comes into her own which was so refreshing. No longer is she lost in Jacinda's shadow but becomes a force to be reckoned with. Just like her sister though, Tamra will have decisions to make, ones that will have lasting effects on their relationship. Then there's Will. *sighs swoony sigh* Could there be another guy as perfect as he is? I think not! He's kind, compassionate, brave and his patience alone could earn him the Nobel Peace Prize. It also doesn't hurt that he's gorgeous and his love and concern for Jacinda are heart melting. But can their love really see them through or are their differences just too great to overcome long term? Will they even get the chance to find out? Along with the four main characters, some familiar faces from the two previous books reappear and we're introduced to some new ones too. (One really, really nice one. *winks*) Not all of these faces are Team Drakai, but one in particular will impact the girls in a way they never saw coming. When finishing a series, it's always important to tie up any loose ends and unanswered questions but a "And they lived happily ever after!" isn't always guaranteed and Hidden is no different. Answering questions concerning Will's drakai blood, where the girls' Mom went and what really happened to their Dad, can be a tall order to fill and Sophie Jordan has succeeded. I know that this is supposed to be the end, time to say "Goodbye" to these characters, but I couldn't help feeling like the story was left in a way that could provide for a spinoff if Sophie Jordan decided to go that route in the future. (I'd read that in a heartbeat! Just sayin')

    Okay so this is one of my favorite series, and I'm sad to see it

    Okay so this is one of my favorite series, and I'm sad to see it end. Any who, the book starts off with Will, Jacinda, Cassian, and Tamara, all getting ready to start their plan. Will quickly gets Jacinda in the back of the van and drives off to the hunters lair. He arrives and hands Jacinda over to them. Once inside Jacinda is thrown into a room with other draki. Each one is put behind a glass wall. She then spots Miriam, it takes some time, but she eventually talks to Jacinda. Now she will spend one day before the others break in to free everyone. However just that one day, brings hell to Jacinda. She is thrown into a situation, with a draki she has never seen before. After that, she is taken from her cell to a  new room, where they place a metal device into her. Before that can happen, the siren is going off, indicating that there is a break in.  Will free's Jacinda, Tamara sets a fog, to make everyone sleep, and Cassian is there to help to. They manage to free everyone, however everyone but Cassian makes it out. Now all they can do is drive off and hope, but that hope fades when Jacinda can't feel Cassian anymore. They come to a stop at a forest, and Jacinda and Will talk. Since they left Jacinda is sad about Cassian, but worries about how Will feels about this. But don't worry they are just fine. Now for some good news, Cassian is still alive! It turned out he was drugged by the mist they set off in the building. But once he came, he and the grey draki escaped and found them in the forest. So now we find that the grey draki isn't so bad, and tags along with them. They all pile up in the van and are on the move again. After some time the van picks up the pace and is moving like crazy. Once at a stop Will goes to the back and tell them that he lost the hunters. So they come up with a plan to split and meet up. That doesn't go so well though. They are all hiding in the trees and watching the hunters talk to Will. Jacinda notices a device and figure out it can track draki, the one who have been implanted. So Jacinda changes the plan, and after some fire and wind blowing they jump back into the van and make it to the truck stop. This is where Will and Jacinda go their way, and the others go on their own. But it doesn't happen, Jacinda want's revenge. So they go through the forest and hide in a secret cave that Cassian has as his own escape place. They hide there until Cassian gets back from the pride. So things go bad after some hours. Corbin finds them. Takes Jacinda back to the pride, but she gets away before theu reach the pride. She heads back to thecave to warn the others, only to find that Miriam is gone. They search and find her by the river with her aunt, who just kills her. Everyone is shocked by this. Jacinda tells Will to go back to the car, but she goes after him, when Tamara tells her she can take care of things. So Jacinda is looking for Will, but instead runs into Will's family. Things now turn quickly. The hunters believe she is still Will's girlfriend, and nothing else. Then Will shows up, and the hunters find Miriam's body. Then Cassian comes in, and kills one of the hunters, thinking that he killed his sisters. The Corbin comes in and grabs Jacinda into the air, but not before Corbin is shot within seconds. Jacinda is back on the ground and even though she hates Corbin, she can't see a hunter just kill him. So Jacinda shows off her true self. Things get crazy and soon they calm down. Everything then turns into an amazing ending, to an amazing series. This book gets more than 5 Stars.

    I loved the first two books, and I really wanted to like Hidden.

    I loved the first two books, and I really wanted to like Hidden. However, a lot felt flat to me. There is just so much packed into one little book with many new ideas introduced and never fully developed. It seems as though Jacinda's just been placed into the hands of the enkros when the situation changes and suddenly she's running back to the place she just tried to escape, making Will unsure of their relationship. Which kind of disappointed me. While I admire Jacinda's burning desire to watch over her fellow draki, it doesn't seems as though she has a particular good reason for jeopardizing her freedom in order to make sure they arrive back home safely. I was also hoping to learn more about the enkros and what happens to the other draki that Jacinda meets, but they don't end up playing a major role in the story.

    While there is a great plotline, the plot isn't fleshed out. Much of it is predictable, but I wouldn't have minded so much if it was well done and the characters were more dynamic and interesting. I loved Jacinda and Will in the first books, but they have since fallen flat as characters, especially Will, who seems to have taken on the role of Jacinda's emotional support (like a good boyfriend). He no longer plays a very active role in the story. It seems as though even Jacinda doesn't know what's happening to her life anymore and she just wants to fulfill her duty to her kind, making her free to go find her mother without the guilt of having abandoned those close to her. Even the end feels rushed.

    The best part of this trilogy has been seeing how Jacinda and Tamara's relationship has progressed. Tamora has really grown as a character. Before, she's been busy hating the draki and wanting to get away from it all. She was busy hating Jacinda for taking away everything and being so "selfish," and then they're making up and working together, supporting each other. Now, Tamara is here making a life for her own and doing what she wants to do instead of just what everyone expects her to do.

    This may not have been my favorite in the trilogy; however, I do recommend reading it if you are a fan of the series. You get to meet a really cool new draki (Deghan) that does stick around for a little bit, and you finally learn about what happened to a certain someone from Jacinda's past.

    Nice change from vampires and werewolves!

    This is the third book in the series. If you like twilight, City of Bones and Matched then you will enjoy this series. Jacinda is a dragon in her pride. She has been bonded to another dragon but is in love with a human. This book is about her struggle to stay or leave the pride and do right or follow her heart.

    I loved this series! A little bitter sweet that the series is done (but there is a novella coming out). Even though the book is not that long, it was action packed and didn't leave you with hanging questions. The romance between Jacinda and Will *Oh My* and an unexpected romance for her sister Tamra. I would definitely recommend this for anyone looking for something different.

    this book was truly amazing.  Jordan wrapped this trilogy up perfectly, giving the readers all the answers they wanted and a happy ending for all characters.  I really enjoyed it and was sort of skeptical reading it because i wasn't very happy with Vanish, but I'm so happy I did!  this books was great, and if you didn't finish the trilogy, or did not start it, you definitely should.  it's worth it.  i give high praise to Sophie Jordan, coming up with these great characters and ideas; i'm hoping to see more YA from her in the future.
