Book Description

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 (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
By TKV
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love This Series June 11, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am a huge fan of paranormal romance and after reading the Lunarmorte series, I quickly became a fan of Samantha Young. I love the fact that this series contains all the conflicted relationships that I am accustomed to, but a completely original storyline. In a genre where so many authors seem to mimic each other's work, Samantha does an amazing job of creating her own unique story. I love the characters and the author's ability to create a clear picture of their stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't get enough of this series! March 30, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Just wow. The uniqueness, realness, and thrills that Samantha brings to this series always seem to blow me away. I adored this installment from beginning to end!

*Spoilers for Smokeless Fire below*

We start off right where we left off in Smokeless Fire. Ever since coming back from the hospital, Ari's dad is different and still very much reserved. Charlie is now a scorcer and trying to get Ari's attention. And Jai is still her body guard... and only that. When someone close to Ari is killed, the trio soon figures out that Ari is being hunted by a dark sorcerer. Everything Ari has ever known changes so quickly, and she is thrown into the Jinn world even more now. But, Ari isn't weak. And it's time she turned the tables and hunt those who are trying to destroy her.

Goodness, I heart this series so much. Taking an adventure with a concept that is new to you is always so engaging and enchanting. With Scorched Skies, you're taken even more into the lore of Jinn that you may or may not know much about. And I love how Samantha kept switching view points. Sometimes from Ari, sometimes from Charlie, sometimes from Jai, and sometimes from other characters! And, even if it doesn't say "Jai", she does it in a way where you instantly know what characters eyes we're looking from and I loved it.

As always, I fell in love with our characters all over again. I'm so proud of Ari in Scorched Skies. The way that she takes control, is so strong, yet can still break down when she needs to. I even adored the way she handled the boy situation. Speaking of... Charlie is still that misguided, broken boy that I wanted to save. In Scorched Skies, we finally see the change that we always wanted in his feelings towards Ari. And I love Charlie, I really do...

5.0 out of 5 stars better than the first book, I am dying for more March 27, 2012
By emjay
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Amazing! The perfect blend of action and romance! I loved this book from start to finish.

We get to know the characters better in this book and we learn more about the Jinn world that Ari has become so significant in. I find that I really enjoy reading things from Ari's perspective, she is likeable and life-like and she definitely matured in this novel.

I am generally not into romance novels, but this book has me absolutely in love with one of the characters (I don't want to tell you who and spoil it). While there is a lot of to and fro happening, I find it believable and felt that it helped build the anticipation.

The action in this book is perfect and complements the overall series well (or what I imagine is the "big plot" of the series). There is an obvious cliff hanger at the end of the book, but I don't mind because I am seriously dying for more!

I loved this book so much, that it has earned a coveted spot on my "favorites" list. I will be pre-ordering the next book in this series, it is just too good to resist.
