Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars!
Well, let me just start by saying: Samantha Young, will forever be one of my favorite authors! She has amazing talent that seeps from the pages of her stories, drawing the reader into worlds that are fascinating and unique.
As Scorched Skies unfolds we get little glimpses of all the characters involved, we get to see how they think, which lends a helping hand in immersing the reader into the story. The mystery and intrigue continues from the first book, unraveling some old aspects and starting some new ones. There is never a dull moment. I was constantly in sweet, torturing agony as the romance picks up. I knew who I was voting for the whole time, but the question is: who were you voting for? Charlie or Jai?
We get further introduced to Trey, Jai's best friend, and I must say, he is quickly becoming one of my favorite characters in the story. We also get introduced to new characters, a better look at the 'political' side of the Jinn, have some suspicions rooted more deeply and get a slightly deeper look into Jai's childhood. The emotions are raw as we continue our adventure with Ari as she grows and accepts the responsibility that was thrust onto her. Scorched Skies will have you jumping out of your skin for Borrowed Embers!
There is quite literally no need for a longer or more in-depth review. Fans of Samantha Young will already be snatching up Scorched Skies and if you aren't already a fan, then what are you waiting for? Go buy Smokeless Fire and get started on this amazing adventure that you shouldn't miss out on!
