Lots of action, new creatures, and new characters, death, betrayal, confusion, nonsensical dreams and a whole lot of magical fighting, but not much romance. Scorched Skies is action packed, but maybe has too much going on.

Could be some spoilers:
Basically, Ari is still being manipulated by the Red, White and Gleaming Kings and their Father and she doesn't know who to trust. Both Jai and Charlie are trying to keep her safe but the Gleaming King's half-breed son Dali is trying to capture her. For a while, Ari stays at Jai's house with Jai and Charlie and sees first-hand how he is treated by the rest of his family. Charlie is determined to win her affections and Jai is determined to keep his to himself. Ari tries to protect herself from both of them and learn to depend only on Ari - harder to do than she thought. There is a lot of manipulation and power struggling going on between the Kings and Ari is the ball being bounced around between them.

There was a lot to keep track of in this story. While still trying to understand what Ari and Jai are capable of and Charlie's sorcerer powers, other creatures with powers are also introduced (Ifrit, Marid, Utukku Shedu, Edimmu, Shaitan, Ginnaye, Ghulah, Haqeeqah, and Nisnas just to name a few). Also, there were a lot of new people introduced (Fallon, Jake, Dali, and Anabelle to just name a few). The action started to get a little repetitive with the Red King and Jai constantly saving Ari after having left her unprotected, the Red King saving Ari EVERY time and Ari and Jai constantly being interrupted just as they are about to kiss? That got old fast.

I LOVE Jai, but Ari hasn't matured much and Charlie seems to move on pretty fast, but if you liked the first book, you have to read this one too.

Wonderful. Stepping back into the amazing world of the Fire Spirits novels was like visiting an old friend: exciting, comforting, loads of fun, and a guaranteed great way to spend an afternoon. In a word, perfect. Scorched Skies is a superb followup to Smokeless Fire. There is action, suspense, and romance in abundance. The personal relationships between Air, Jai, and Charlie were handled just right and I am delighted that Ari is coming into her own. The next book cannot come soon enough. A must, must, must read.

I really liked this book, but I wasn't as blown away as I was with Book 1. I don't want to give anything away, so I'll just say it seemed a little too easy for Ari to give someone up and she seemed very back and forth. I would have liked to see more of Dali because I felt like I never really understood his motives (like why he thought what he did to Ari would work). Overall, it was a good read and the tension between Ari and Jai was great. I love the characters and I am still anxiously awaiting book 3.

I loved this book. I have now become addicted to this series. I love the world of the Jinn the powers involved in addition to the romance and suspense. This series will make for an excellent Television series! I can not wait to see how it all plays out in the next book. Thank you for this wonderful fantasy escape!

Format: Paperback
So Ari is finally coming to terms with being a Jinn, but now her father knows the truth and it's putting a major strain on their relationship. All she wants is for him to love her, but that might not be enough.

After another tragic event, Ari has to go on the run from a dark sorcerer, who wants to use her for his evil purposes. Being chased is absolutely no fun and being accompanied by two boys behaving like 10 years old doesn't make it any easier.

Ari has to make the decision: will she choose for Charlie, her childhood crush, or for Jai, her fearsome protector. Tired of always waiting and letting other people push her, Ari focusses on becoming the hunter and trying to ignore her feelings as they only stand in her way.

So Ari is definitely becoming stronger, not just her powers, but her as a person. She is still conflicted between Charlie and Jai, but she will make the right choice (hopefully).

Charlie is still on the path of revenge, but he tries to be good for Ari's sake. I'm still not sure if I like Charlie or not. You hope he ands up alright, but it's kind of hard when he keeps making all the wrong choices.

Jai is still trying to decide if he's just Ari's protector or maybe something more. If only his loyalty towards his father didn't stand in the way. The tension between Ari and Jai was killing me. You keep rooting for them to make the right decision.

Fallon is a new character, half Jinn descendant or something like that. Having to use talismans to perform magic, she catches the attention of Charlie. I do like Fallon. She hyperactive and pretty laid back. Fallon makes the tension between Ari and the two guys disappear.

So definitely read if you want to know what's going to happen between Ari and Jai. If you like magic, romance and action, Scorched Skies is a book for you. A perfect read for a lazy Sunday afternoon.

I think one of the things Samantha Young does best is her characters. Their internal conflicts and interactions are varied and believable and this book does a great job with that. While I am enjoying the plot, it is the characters that makes me love this book.

I love that the heroine is one of the only characters I have ever seen in the YA paranormal romance genre that looks at the guys she's been stressing over and realizes that she doesn't want to spend her life fighting for people who aren't willing to fight for her. Sure, she has some setbacks in that decision (which is understandable, since it's sometimes hard to get your heart to catch up with your head), but she makes a conscious decision to stop wasting her time with people who aren't willing to fight for her or put her first in their relationship (like does for them). It is refreshing to read and provided a whole different level of conflict within the story. Perhaps it's just that I really identify with the heroine, but I thought it was brilliantly done.

While the plot tends to have rather easily overcome conflicts, she amps it up by having complex relationships and by having a lot of plot lines all twisting together. It seems like every time there is any sort of real serious problem, someone is able to swoop in and fix the whole thing rather easily, but that's to be expected when you have characters that are uber-powerful. But the author keeps it from being bland by adding those other aspects.

There are characters whose motives we question, others who are struggling with issues, and trust issues all over the place. I am really enjoying this series.
