Book Description

Scorched Skies - book two in the YA Urban Fantasy series, Fire Spirits.


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 (ASIN: B005XP1VBY), available in Kindle and paperback.

4.0 out of 5 stars That's Charlie on the Cover! March 12, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best. March 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Can't Wait for Book 3! March 12, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Magic, romance and action May 9, 2013
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Once Upon a Reviews September 6, 2012
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.
