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.Read more ›
At the start of the book you already have to cope with a very shocking incident. How Ari deals with it afterwards, is written very well. It's very credible and it made it very easy for me to put myself in her place. She grows tremendously in this stoy. In Smoking Fire I got the idea that she stood back and let everything happen, but now she's ready to take the reins and make decisions! Love it! I really like heroines who know what they want ^^
I'm slowly getting annoyed with Charlie. More and more he's starting to behave like an egoist. Okay, the death of his brother was very traumatic, but because of it he treats Ari very badly. And he refuses to see that some things can be very addicting and therefore not good for you. It wasn't very interesting or thrilling to read a part of the story through his eyes. Normally I tend to have a lot of sympathy for the loosing side of the love triangle, but not this time -.- Good riddance!
Talking about the love triangle, Jai on the other side has also had to endure his fair share of traumatic experiences for his family. And he didn't turn in an ass. He deserves someone who loves him all the more. In this book you'll find out why he rejected Ari in the first place, although he finally starts paying more attention to her ^^
The story also gets more engrossing. More and more hints are dropped and you'll find out more how the events happened.Read more ›
Ari Johnson is still coming to terms with her heritage, of her position as the Seal amongst the Jinn and her new feelings towards her Guardian Jai and her long time best friend, Charlie - now a sorcerer.
When a life is lost under orders from The White King, Ari sets out for revenge all the while trying to avoid playing in to his hands which will force her return to Mount Qaf, right where he wants her. There is also a new player wanting Ari and her powers for his own nefarious purposes. The poor thing never gets a moments peace to not only grieve for the person she has lost but also to think about her new life which has been more or less forced upon her.
Scorched Skies was such an emotional read on so many levels, Ari's fathers declaration of I really do love you, kid. I guess I just never loved you enough left me feeling heartbroken for her but it obviously explained his absence and lack of feeling! Charlies's poor timing and constant presence drove me a little batty and Jai's hot and cold left my head spinning, how Ari stayed sane with so much drama around her left me baffled.
The politics is alive and well in this book and I can't seem to work out each of the player's agendas - they all have a bit of a power struggle going on and each want Ari for their own use, the mystery and suspense makes for an enthralling read and the war for the seal is going to be an intriguing one.Read more ›
