Action. Nope
Mystery.... It's all pretty clear.
Romance? Um... A good attempt, I guess.
What really bothered me was Jacinda. The overall idea was pretty good but for our daring protagonist. All her actions are motivated by wanting to do something for herself, not what was decided for her. But then a couple pages pass and she voices the exact thing she threw a fit over.
And her love life was a failure. By chapter 19 she had vowed to stay away from Will 5 times but kissed him about four times. All gooshey "How did I delude myself I could keep away?" one second and "How could I forget what he is? I vowed never to lose my self to his ooooohhh so amazing hotness."
This book could do a bit better if it had some humor to fill in the gaps. More suited to this less-than-dire story.
I love dragons, mystery, action, and have no problem with the romance, but when I saw all the 5 star reviews??? Honestly, I was shocked.

The concept was engaging. I could see, however, that this would get annoying if the character doesn't change and grow in the future.

"Honey brown hair falls over his brow carelessly, and I remember it darkly wet and slicked back from his face. I remember the two of us alone in a cave, his hand on mine and that spark that passed between us before his face became so stark and angry. Before he vanished.”

He watches me intently, his eyes hard and merciless. I wait for him to announce my presence, holding his gaze, refusing to look away, determined that this beautiful boy see the face he sentences to death with his next words. "No." I suck in a breath as the smolder dies from my lungs. We stare at each other for a lingering moment. He, a hunter. Me, a draki. Then, he's gone. And I'm all alone.

The back:
Marked as special, Jacinda knows her every move is watched. When she breaks the most sacred tenet of her kind, she nearly pays with her life, only to be spared by a beautiful stranger sent to hunt those like her. For Jacinda is a draki - a descendant of dragons whose ability to shift into human form is her best defense. Forced to flee into the mortal world, Jacinda struggles to adapt. The one bright light is Will; Jacinda knows she should avoid him at all costs - Will and his family are hunters - but the passion he stirs within her can't be ignnored, even if it means risking her life...
