OMG. So the very first time I read Firelight, which was SEVERAL years ago, I gave it 5 stars. I apparently loved it. I re-read it last week so I could complete the series, and I gave it 3.5 stars. Obviously I'm in a different place now.. haha.
I was SOO disappointed with the rest of the series. The main character, Jacinda, got on my freaking nerves! She became super annoying! Her sister Tamra was way more interesting, as was Cassian. This was a case of a love triangle gone totally WRONG. The romance severely detracted from the story and I couldn't wait for the series to end. The only reason I finished it was because, silly me, I bought the last 2 books.
This series had the potential to be amazing. I loved the Draki lore,. Those few parts I found to be very interesting, but unfortunately this wasn't enough to sustain the story. I found the main character Jacinda to be a very weak character and that's something I just am not down with. I found the supporting characters to be much more interesting.
I don't know what else to say besides I was very much disappointed with this series. Every dragon book I've read so far has disappointed me in some way which sucks.
I would say if this series at all interests you, borrow it from the library. If only I had done that.
Bottom Line: Disappointing. I give the series a very nice 3/5 rating...only because I didn't HATE the first book.
