Scorched Skies (Fire Spirits 2) - Samantha Young

The Book

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.

My Opinion  4 STARS
I spent most of this book wanting to slap both Charlie and Jai over the head repeatedly for being so bloody thick and stupid.

I wanted to slap Charlie for holding his revenge over his brother more important than making a better decision. His quest and thirst for magic could and will only leave him in trouble. And where will it ultimately leave him? 

I wanted to slap Jai as in most of this book Jai struggles to come to terms with his feelings for Ari. Why is it then things are almost too late that we realise what is in front of us and what we really want?

I am also interested to see where and why Ari is having these dreams. They have to be important and mean something. Is this part of her powers? Or is someone messing with her? My thinking and i could be completely off mark is that it has something to do with both Lilith and the Seal. Perhaps Lilith went into the making of the seal, hence the different parts, thereby the dreams are from Liliths memories or something (lots of speculating going on in my mind). At least the dreams are giving her a better idea of how the war started and perhaps a better incite as to the participants.

A brilliant second book and i can't wait to see what happens in book three.

Read Jai's P.O.V. from the 'Club Scene' in Scorched Skies (Fire Spirits #2)
