Sophie Jordan grew up in the Texas hill country where she wove fantasies of dragons, warriors, and princesses. A former high school English teacher, she’s also the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of Avon historical romances. She now lives in Houston with her family. When she’s not writing, she spends her time overloading on caffeine (lattes and Diet cherry Coke preferred), talking plotlines with anyone who will listen (including her kids), and cramming her DVR with true-crime and reality-TV shows. Sophie also writes paranormal romances under the name Sharie Kohler.

My name is Cassian. No last name. I don’t have a last name. We don’t them in the pride. That’s for humans. And I’m not human. I’m something else. I’m what is left of a species that doesn’t exist anymore. There’s just my pride. We’re the last. There may be others out there but I don’t know about them. I only know us. And our way of life. The pride is all I care about. Preserving it. Keeping us safe. That’s my purpose. My duty. I’m a machine. Fast. Strong. I’ve trained since birth to protect my pride and our way of life.
Except… Except I lied.
The pride isn’t all I care about. It should be. I’m the alpha’s son — next in line. Safeguarding the pride should be everything, but it’s not. She is. Girls in the pride … they flirt and try to get my attention. I see them but I don’t seethem. There’s only Jacinda. She’s not like the others, and maybe that’s it. Maybe that’s the reason I want her so much. I don’t know. And I don’t know if I can win her. I don’t know if she’ll have me. There are so many … issues … complications…
I only know I won’t rest. I won’t stop until she’s safe. She might even be more important than the pride to me…
Fill in the Blanks:
NOBODY KNOWS I AM: A draki!
I WISH I COULD STOP: Sometimes I wish I could stop yearning so much for Jacinda … it would be easier for everyone if I could just fall for another girl …
Also, I wish I could stop the enkros. All of them. Find them and put an end to them for good.
I’M A SUCKER FOR: Um, Redheads. Yeah. And a specific one, to be sure …
A GOOD TIME FOR ME IS: A love it at night when I can fly undetected. When I blend into the night and can be one with the wind.
NOBODY WOULD BELIEVE ME IF THEY SAW ME: As a draki. Humans wouldn’t even believe it if they saw it … not that I’m putting that to the test.
I’D REALLY RATHER: Stop running. Stop hiding. Turn the tables on hunters. Stop running from them as pride protocol dictates and hunt them for a change.
THE FIRST THING I DO IN THE MORNING IS: Push-ups and then a run. Yes. I’ve got to keep in shape and be strong for the pride.

About this Book:
Jacinda was supposed to bond with Cassian, the “prince” of their pride. But she resisted long before she fell in love with Will—a human and, worse, a hunter. When she ran away with Will, it ended in disaster, with Cassian’s sister, Miram, captured. Weighed down by guilt, Jacinda knows she must rescue her to set things right. Yet to do so she will have to venture deep into the heart of enemy territory.
The only way Jacinda can reach Miram is by posing as a prisoner herself, though once she assumes that disguise, things quickly spiral out of her control. As she learns more about her captors, she realizes that 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.
