Here, their mom hopes they will live normal lives and Jacinda will lose her ability to transform. As fate would have it, Jacinda ends up going to school with Will, a young dragon hunter, and her troubles are only beginning. Her attraction to Will keeps the dragonfire inside her from going completely out, but it only postpones the tough decisions she needs to make about her future.
