Firelight is a period romance film written and directed by William Nicholson and starring Sophie Marceau and Stephen Dillane.
Written by William Nicholson, the film is about a woman who agrees to bear the child of an anonymous English landowner in return for payment to resolve her father's debts.
When the child is born, the woman gives up the child as agreed. Seven years later, the woman is hired as a governess to a girl on a remote Sussex estate, whose father is the anonymous landowner.
Firelight was Nicholson's first and only film as a director. In , Swiss governess Elisabeth Laurier Sophie Marceau agrees to bear a child for an anonymous English landowner in return for money needed to pay her father's debts.
They meet over three nights at a lonely island hotel. Despite their wish for detachment, they develop a deeply passionate connection during their lovemaking by firelight.
Their feelings grow after they converse on the beach and at the hotel. Nine months later 10th of August , Elisabeth gives birth to a girl, and as agreed, she gives up the child to the care of the English landowner.
Over the coming years, Elisabeth never forgets her child. She begins to keep a journal of watercoloured flowers and plants, adding a page for each holiday and birthday they are apart.
The anonymous Englishman is Charles Godwin Stephen Dillane , a landowner and struggling sheep farmer, who can barely keep the debtors of his philandering father, Lord Clare, at bay.
Charles's wife, Amy Godwin, is paralysed and catatonic due to a horseriding accident. Amy's sister, Constance Lia Williams , runs the Godwin household.
Seven years after giving up her daughter, Elisabeth manages to locate her, and she gets herself hired as the new governess for the child, who is named Louisa.
Initially, Charles rejects Elisabeth, and demands that she leave immediately. However, Constance insists that he should give the new governess a month to find a new situation.
Showing Elisabeth the catatonic form of his wife, Charles forces Elisabeth to swear never to reveal to Louisa or anyone the nature of their previous relationship.
Louisa Dominique Belcourt is a spoiled, ignorant, wilful, and foulmouthed child—unloved by anyone except her father. Though she acknowledges the father's loving relationship with his daughter, Elisabeth is appalled by the lack of control Charles exercises over the girl.
Draki descend from Dragons but they can demanifest into looking human for a good part of their life. There are many different prides and they pretty much stay together and protect one another.
Their enemy are hunters, humans who hunt them down and kill them for their skin and their strength, and enkros. Jacinda's father disappeared and they figure he was most likely killed by Hunters or Enkros.
Her mother doesn't really manifest anymore and she pretty much let her Draki side die. Also, her twin sister Tamra never manifested so she's treated like a pariah in their pride.
One day Jacinda and her best friend sneak out so they can fly during the day which is forbidden. Hunters find them and Jacinda hides in a cave.
That's where she sees Will, a young hunter, who thinks she's beautiful and keeps his family from finding and hurting her.
Jacinda is of a mythical race but she's even more rare in it because she's the first Firebreather in a long time.
The Alpha of her pride has decided that she's meant for his son Cassian. Cassian will become Alpha one day and he's got his sights set on Jacinda.
After the pride finds out that she put her life in jeopardy and their pride, she flees with her mother and sister.
She didn't want to leave but she didn't have much choice. They move to an area that is pretty much desert and it is so dry and horrible for Draki's.
When her and Tamra start school, Jacinda sees Will again and she can sense him and feel him. She's attracted to him big time but she also knows he's a hunter.
Will is in a family of hunters and he hates it. He's with them as long as he has to be but once he finishes school and such, then he wants to leave.
He is incredibly strong and has a great ability as a hunter. He can't stop what he feels for Jacinda but he tries to hide it because his cousin Xander always is in competition with him.
He and his family never knew that Draki could turn into looking human. He tries to stay away from her but he can't. Then when he finds out what she then he really can't stay away.
But he's keeping a big secret from her as well. This is a wonderful book and an amazing series. One person found this helpful. She can become a dragon and lives in a pride with her mother her father died and her sister, Tamra who is not a draki at all.
Jacinda is also a firebreather and there has not been one for hundreds of years so the pride wants her to make more fire breathing dragons with Cassian a childhood friend whose father is head of the pride.
Jacinda can also take human form and remain that way but if she is angered or upset she can't help becoming a dragon and that is a big problem.
Jacinda and her friend sneak out one night to fly around prohibited but find they are being pursued by the human hunters who hunt for these draki- in the process of getting away Jacinda's wing is compromised and she must hide in a cave which is on a pond.
There a human hunter, Will, finds her but does not alert the other hunters instead telling them nothing is there. Jacinda gets in so much trouble, her mom panics and makes them all leave in the dead of night, but Jacinda can't stop thinking about the hunter, his eyes and his wet hair.
Imagine her surprise when this guy is at her new high school and they are increasingly drawn to each other.
I loved this first in a series and will be finishing the other 2 books. When I taught an online course at Arcadia University, my students raved about this book!
Good book with a good story line. If you are not interested in breaking the rules for love this is not the book for you. Even as I know that I must avoid him.
I needed this to remember the vow I made to myself to stay away from him. The promise to avoid him. Something I already know, but sitting in the front seat of his car, I'm not quite succeeding at that.
Wish I didn't feel this pull, this constant tug toward him. Except, our kiss told me the opposite. Kissing him told me what I already knew, but had been denying.
I can't risk being with him. If it kills me, I'll ignore him and forever keep my distance. Wet cold hugs my body.
Agony lances my wing, tearing the membrane. It took days for that to heal, for the pain to fade. I drag that memory close, hold it tight, determined to remember.
Xander is part of that memory. But then, so is Will. Maybe that's something I've let myself forget. Even with the taste of him still lingering sweetly on my lips, I vow never to forget again.
Turn off everything I'm feeling. He's too dangerous for me to be around. I can do this. Ah, but we know how this all ends, it is a teen love story after all.
Will does some decidedly stalker-ish things to Jacinda which made me like him even less. I found myself wanting to know more about the draki Jacinda left behind in the pride, as well as Cassian.
This book was such a mess; a sad, sad mess of poorly written teen angst and melodrama, and an obvious example of an author trying to cash in on the genre.
Will I read the next one? View all comments. Sep 30, Monisha rated it it was ok Shelves: Shape-shifters are nothing new.
How cool is that? I loved the idea, but unfortunately, I struggled a lot with Firelight and story fell short.
There were such high expectations for this book, but it sucked The tagline for this book is: But after a few chapters, this unique story about draki's turned into a "new girl in town meets hot distant bo Shape-shifters are nothing new.
But after a few chapters, this unique story about draki's turned into a "new girl in town meets hot distant boy at school" story and it lost all uniqueness it had going for it.
And, trust me I've read more than my share of infuriating-as-hell MCs. You, Jacinda, are selfish, infuriating, stupid, AND selfish.
I wanted to strangle her. Really, I think the author was trying to make the main out as a selfless character. You are worse than Bella Swan, because while she infuriates me as well, I can better tolerate an ridiculous overload of foolish selflessness rather than childish selfishness.
The overall story does that to me, too, but you are really the main reason why I simply stopped caring. And, let me tell you it's not a good feeling at all!
She call's her mother, in one fleeting scene You're sixteen, you're angry, I get it. But for a moment, please, just shut up. See, Jacinda is possibly the epitome of adolescent over-reacting.
By the way, to have more brain cells inside your brain wouldn't hurt, Jacinda. In case you disagree with me, consider this: Living in her Draki community, Jacinda feels trapped.
Living in her Draki community, Jacinda complains of being used. Living with her mom and sister, Jacinda complains about being used.
There is no other reason for her mother to make them all leave the Draki community other than Jacinda's safety. If she wanted to leave just for her and Tamra's happiness, wouldn;t they have dragged Jacinda away from her community the instant they learned of her father's death?
I'm getting pissed off just remembering it all. There is lots of standard teenie romance with a special dose of high school drama.
But my biggest problem is that Firelight is a lust story, not a love story. Also, totally did not buy the romance.
So Jacinda can "sense" Will. Big whoopdee-doo, and I mean crap, we're only told this like five bazillion times, that she lights up like a Christmas tree and starts hyperventilating whenever Will is within a five mile radius.
Is this supposed to make me believe they're in love? There is no relationship developed between Will and Jacinda. Why do they even like each other?
OH, wow, no prizes for guessing! They never talk, and when they do it's very brief, yet we're supposed to believe Will is in love with Jacinda and that Jacinda loves him oh so deeply she'd do anything for him.
They spend more time making out than getting to know each other. Basically half of the novel Will tries to convince Jacinda he and his family are dangerous and she should stay away.
Later on, Will completely makes a and shows up at her house saying he's tired of trying to stay away from her.
I want to see why the characters fall for each other and I love to see how they fall for each other.
Will and Jacinda are just two teens in lust with one another. I don't want to read about a whiny dragon-- I want to read about a fiercely awesome, fire-breathing, scare-the-pants-off-you, courageous, warrior-princess dragon!
I know, I demand way too much from my books. If you can handle cliches flying from all directions, then you might be okay with this book.

Allerdings waren hier so viele Jugendbuchklischees enthalten, vom Highschoolzickendrama über Instalove bis hin zum Anfang eines Liebesdreiecks.
Darum musste ich 2 Sterne abziehen obwohl mir die Idee, das Worldbuilding und soweit eigentlich auch die Charaktere gefallen haben.
Klar, Jacinda war manchmal ein wenig eigen, aber ich finde es gibt Ach Menno, ich kann dem Buch leider echt nicht mehr als 3 Sterne geben und das obwohl die Geschichte so viel Potenzial hat und es sich so schnell lesen lies.
Oct 24, Haleema rated it it was ok Shelves: However, it doesn't entirely deserve one star either. I was contemplating quite hard before giving this book two stars.
First of all, Firelight? It's a good thing that doesn't sound like Twilight because that would have been really stupid What was it about?
Firelight was about a monotonous, pessimistic, idiotic, depres Beware of spoilers! Firelight was about a monotonous, pessimistic, idiotic, depressing little twit named Bella Swan Jacinda Jones.
She's a fire-breathing dragon, Whoops! I mean, there wasn't really a praise-worthy plot. She falls in love with the wrong boy. She has to go back to her own kind.
Jacinda was a clone of Bella Swan. Insanely dependent on a guy who stalks her 4. Idiotic This girl is the epitome of nothingness.
She's an astonishing, beautiful, different, rare, fire-breathing Mary Sue of a loser. She's from Planet Loser.
You get the point, right? She's a horrible mixture of Nora Grey and Bella Swan. She's so freaking pathetic with her sob story.
She's so dependent on Will. She needs Will all the time. He's the ONLY one who makes me feel alive inside. She's so damn clingy and stupid.
She's a poor excuse for a protagonist. Whatever his stupid last name was. Guess who he reminded me of? Just take a wild, wild guess.
Except he's not a year-old virgin! Will and his oh-so-velvety voice stole the heart of Jacinda. Thank God Jordan didn't mention that Will had a fruity smell to his chest.
I would have gone nuts. Will is the perfect Edward Cullen. He creepily watches Jacinda from a distance through a window without her knowing.
Oh, and Jacinda doesn't mind In fact, she welcomes it. He saves her from stupid accidents. He's the lion and she's the prey. Velvetty voice, beautiful face, chiseled body, Gary Stu.
Girl has to leave her home. She hates her new home. She falls in love with a stalker. Stalker is her hunter.
She has to go back to her home. Oh, and I forgot to mention how much of a horny, immoral couple this was. They're the type of people that make Aphrodite and Erik from House of Night look like saints.
Okay, maybe not that horny, but they made out in a horrid room filled with dead draki skin. I couldn't decide whether it was good or not, but now I can.
Jordan took purple prose to a whole new damn level. It's like, "I need to have awesome description so I'm going to go completely overboard with adjectives and adverbs.
It was too dense for my taste. Her sentences were extremely choppy and abrupt. They contained so many commas. Jordan is definitely a Commanist. I let myself melt into him, feeling his warmth and dying to get more of it, enveloping my arms around his hard waist.
I wet my lips. I ran my tongue across my lips. Why I gave it two starts: I haven't read about them since I finished the Harry Potter series years ago.
I found the concept of the draki slightly interesting. I thought the story could have been tons better if it wasn't for the insane resemblance to Twilight.
I felt like Jordan had a tiny idea forming in her heard, but she just couldn't get the execution right. Jordan's romance ruined the whole book.
View all 20 comments. Of course, I love it!! View all 6 comments. Dec 10, Lora rated it it was ok Recommends it for: First off, let's start with the things I liked about Firelight: Although maybe a little too easy for my taste I think the biggest word she used was confidante , it had a nice flow that made it easy to flip pages at rapid-fire speed.
Also, I thought that the world she created was slightly more original than other paranormal worlds out there right now. Team Will or Team Cassian?
To be honest, I didn't much care for either. Will definitely had his shining moments, but they were few and far between and I felt that he fell flat as far as memorable male characters go; I don't see myself remembering him even next month.
And as for Cassian - to be quite honest - he just wasn't in the novel enough for me to really get to know him in order to properly gauge him as a character.
Although I will say that in the small glimpses we do see of his character, I found him to be more intriguing than Will.
The main character, Jacinda: At first I liked her voice on the page. But then she started to seem a little bit irritating.
Mainly because throughout the novel she goes back and forth between wanting to be with Will and thinking that she must stay away from him; I lost track of how many times she did this.
That hackneyed plot line along with the love triangle just doesn't work for me anymore. I think the only thing I ended up liking about her character was that I could empathize with her and the situation that she was put in because of her mother.
I found Jacinda's sister, Tamra, to be very annoying and I just wish she could have been a little more supporting of her sister.
I've never liked vain characters. Since I've basically mixed in the good with the bad I'll just finish saying that, all in all, this wasn't horrible, it just didn't live up to my expectations.
And as for the sequel, Vanish. View all 8 comments. Apr 24, Tera rated it it was amazing. An amazing and dramatic book. I was attached to Jacinda from page one, from the moment she first takes flight.
With romance, danger, action, family, new friends, and ancient rules, this is definitely one to watch for this fall.
View all 66 comments. I was going to review this, but I'm having the same problem as my good friend Jess: I honestly don't know what to say about this book.
It could be because of the circumstances. I'll give you a few examples when you should not be reading a book.
I was so out of it I didn't even get the chance to become annoyed. But I'm glad I did, because I don't think I would have kept on reading if I hadn't been desperately trying to find something to distract me from the 2-hour session with a needle hammering in my skin, at a speed that could only be described as 'legendary'.
So, by now, I still haven't managed to say anything even remotely related to this book so here goes: Sequel, where are you?

Mar 23, Mizuki rated it it was ok Shelves: Firelight, one hell of cliched book it is, to a point that I want to make a cliches check list: To be honest, Firelight reads like Twilight, a slightly better and more eventful version of Twilight if only S.
Meyer actually has the tiniest bit of writing talent to save her life. That's all I can say. I also would have forgiven all the cliches in the book if the main character, Jacinda actually did something and had a mind of her own, making her own decisions and carrying them through instead of just ranting about how suffocating her life was whilst allowing herself to be dragged around whenever the pride, her mom and Cassian took over and ran her life for her.
The idea of a girl grew up bearing a huge amount of expectation and pressure,how she dealt with it and found herself, is an interesting one, but throughout the book I remain rather indifferent with Jacinda and what she had gone through.
As to the male lead Will, I would have been okay with him if only view spoiler [ he didn't turn out to be a freaking stalker. The twin sister Tamra turned out to be a whinny and a complainer.
I know we're supposed to pity them and see how difficult their lives must be, but these two are just so over-the-top that they are unbearable to read.
In fact, the briefly mentioned dragon hunters clan seems to be a lot more interesting than Jacinda and her family adding together.
Mar 05, Alex Bennett rated it it was amazing Shelves: Firelight by Sophie Jordan was one of the best books I have ever read. But I think I owe you more of an explanation than that.
From page one, I knew that this book would take over my life. While reading, everything I did revolved around this book.
When I ate, when if I did homework, if I even came out of my room. Starting off with a bang, the whole story leaves you hungry for more. To the point of you never wanting to stop.
I felt an instant need to read more about the amazing mythology, charac Firelight by Sophie Jordan was one of the best books I have ever read.
I felt an instant need to read more about the amazing mythology, characters, and story the whole way through.
I felt an instant connection to Jacinda right from the start. She is a draki and if you try to take that away from her, part of her dies.
So when her true draki self is threatened, you know that you will be cheering her on the whole time, even if it is not always the smartest decision.
Will is amazing, nuff said. Cassian should not even be in the picture, but future books may sway my opinion.
The draki mythology was incredibly unique. I have never read anything like it and doubt I ever will. The way they react with each other and with the outside world was so interesting and great to read.
That, however, is one thing I would have wanted more of. This is definitely a YA debut to watch. I have no doubt that this book, along with anything else Sophie Jordan writes, will be a huge success.
I know it deserves to be. My advice would be to clear a day on your calendar, and read this book until you are done. Because I doubt you will be able to stop.
And then we can all await the next book in this series together. Because I, and you soon, will need the next book.
Jun 20, Lea rated it liked it Shelves: Alrighty, so I just finished this book. And I'm wavering between a 2.
Overall, you know, it wasn't bad. I've read much worse Fallen series, anyone? The premise of the story is different, which I definitely liked-- I mean, a book about a girl who descends from dragons?
I don't know, try as I did, there were just things about this book that left me frustrated.
