Scorched Skies - book two in the YA urban fantasy series Fire Spirits.
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.
To journey into the dark world of the Jinn, begin Ari’s story with book one of the Fire Spirits series, Smokeless Fire.
it development of characters and plot twist kept me interested. I can't wait for 3
This second urban/paranormal fantasy novel became very redundant as it went along. The story arc wasn't developed and the characters, who were nicely fleshed out in the first book, became tedious...they did the same thing over and over and over and.......
...I became tired of it and started to read twitter and facebook messages instead of listening. Granted it's a YA and I'm not but it would take a pretty easily satisfied YA to be enthusiastic about this novel...I wish it lived up to the first book in the series.
Sorry-it didn't hold my attention.
I liked the narrator and this is the first Samantha Young novel I've listened to that I didn't rate 4 stars at least.
Usually I look forward to another book in a series but even though I have purchased the final chapter I've gone to another-totally different-novel. It's much more interesting
(Across the Nightingale Floor). I may just send the third book back to Audible. I'm not at all interested in what happens to these people
