Summary: (from goodreads) FEAR THE HEAT...
The White King has crossed the line, sounded the horn, sent out the wolves.
When blood is shed and life is lost the reality of Ari’s position as both hunter and prey finally sets in. It seems her father will stop at nothing to force her will to his own and distracted by Charlie’s latest mistake and her seemingly misguided attraction to Jai, Ari never thought to fear anyone else but the Jinn King.
Blindsided and attacked, Ari learns a new wolf has joined the hunt. A dark sorcerer believes he knows a way to bleed the power of the Seal and wield it as his own, and he is even less patient than The White King.
The War for the Seal has only just begun… and it’s time for Ari to turn it on its head.
It’s time for Ari to stop acting like the hunted.
It’s time for Ari to become the hunter.
I know I sound like a broken record by now, but I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Samantha Young!!!!! If you haven't read any of her books, you must be living under a rock. She is amazing!!! Every series is full of adventure and romance. She really knows how to capture the reader and take them to the world she has created for us to read. I have read almost all of her books and I have yet to find one that I dislike. I was beyond thrilled when I was able to read Scorched Skies and Borrowed Ember back to back.
Scorched Skies is the 2nd book in the Fire Spirits series and “wow”, just “wow.” So much happens in this book that I was like, OMG this poor girl has been through too much already, can she ever catch a break? Like the saying goes, “what doesn’t kill you will only make you stronger.” Well, in that case, Ari is one tough little cookie. Not only does she have to fear her evil farther, the White King, but now there is a new sorcerer in town and is on a mission to take Ari and the Seal, even if that means draining her of every last drop of her blood.
Ari starts to realize that she cares for Charlie and Jai in different ways. Jai still hasn’t admitted his feelings for her but actions speak louder than words. You can tell that Jai cares for Ari and not in the guardian kind of way. They will both give their lives in a heartbeat to save one another.
