Eyes of Ember left off with Jocelyn trapped in the nightmare of Cail's mind and the games he was playing with her. Scorched Treachery starts off while Joclyn is trapped in the tormenting hell of Cail’s mind, and the battle around her only continues to grow and spread.
Edmund has infiltrated the underground hallways of Prague, guiding the massacre that would end the lives of the last of the great magical race. In her attempts to stop him, Wynifred has been captured and her magic restrained. Chained up in the ancient dungeons of Prague, her fate is left in the hands of her father, who has tried to kill her before.
With Ryland’s screams and Sain’s fragmented sights as her only company, Wyn must rely on something that has been hidden deep inside of her for centuries to help them break free.
Ilyan’s whole life has been building up to one purpose. Protect the Silnỳ. He knows what he must do, and he has no doubt in his ability to do so.
But when his father’s magic removes Joclyn’s mind from her body, he is left protecting the shell of the one person he loves. Desperate to find a way to break her free of her prison, he makes a choice. And that one choice changes everything.
Now, Ilyan finds himself bound to Joclyn in a way that he never knew to be possible.
They say that blood is thicker than water, but Black Water burns, and Ilyan’s heart may not be strong enough to keep it pumping through his veins and give the girl he loves back into his brother’s care.
Even if he can, it may not be safe to do so.
Yeah, so happy times at Ridgemont High huh? NOT! You know what my one and only update to goodreads was for this book? At 67% Saying "You suck. This book sucks. I hate crying. Why did it have to be so good?"
Yupp. I was that sucked into it the whole time, on the edge of my seat, the page, pulling my hair out, biting my nails, talking or screaming at the characters, until I hit 67%, then I couldn't hold it in or keep it to myself anymore. (Note I didn't spoil anything!)
But oh yes, this book will scorch and sear you. You will cry, and anguish, ruminiate, and want to destroy things before it's over, but despite all that You will love this book like a slow sweet burn, simmering under your skin. There will be betrayals, as the title suggests, new friendships, deepening friendships, loss, and so much more.
For me, however, oh I didn't know whether to consider Ilyan or Wyn the main character and apple of my eye in this book. They both have captured my heart so fully, and I was always so invested in them, although there are so many other characters in play here. Dramin, Sain, Thom, Ryland, Edmund, Wyn, Ilyan, Talon, Joclyn, Ovalia and more. With so many people in play, who is/are the traitors? Who can you trust?
What I absolutely loved about this book was that it never lost momentum and I was constantly on my toes, guessing what would come next, trying to figure out the grand scheme of things, but Rebecca is too good at throwing twist after plot twist at you then running away like a kid yelling NOT IT!
Or an overzealous sea witch.
Not only was the plot constantly advancing but there was even more character development, as if they could develop any more!! Yes that's right, they're still growing folks. Wynifred especially. And perhaps Ilyan and Joclyn's relationship as well...?
I forewarn, that the POV and location is in constant flux, from Ilyan at the caves to Wyn in a dungeon with Edmund, Ryland, and Sain. While normally having shifting povs annoys me to some degree, I actually enjoyed the change of scenery--to understand Wyn and Ilyan and see inside their minds, what they think, their unfiltered thoughts, and not just what they actually say.
I don't know if I have a bad word to say about this book other than, Damn you for making me cry, you horrible sadist, and I love you, please make it all better.
Read it!!!! You must read it! Or pick up the series if you haven't.
At first I was a little bit disappointed that I'd be reading the same story again, but I'm so glad that the author has written this series this way as there was so much happening to the other characters while Jos was stuck in her connection with Ryland for weeks on end.
We now have a better picture of what happened when Ryland's father and followers stormed their sanctuary in Prague and the brutality that he is capable of. Unfortunately we have to endure the loss of a great character in the midst of this battle and that certainly meant for some tears. We were also treated to the back story of Wyn and Iilyan and that gives us a great insight into their past and how they came to be allies.
Rebecca Ethington writes so well and you really feel like you're a part of this world as she makes it very believable. Her writing flows nicely and it gives you a clear picture of what is happening in her world.
As this is a continuing series, the ending was left open but we did get a little more romance this time around.
I look forward to seeing where the next installment takes us.
Scorched Treachery is book three of Rebecca Ethington’s Imdalind series and unlike the first two installments, it is told from the alternating POVs of Ilyan and Wyn during the two weeks that Joclyn is trapped in Cail’s mind. Ilyan struggles with the conflicting needs to protect and save Joclyn and protect what is left of his people. Wyn is just trying to survive her imprisonment by Edmund, but learns an awful truth about her past.
This story captured my attention from the beginning! And there are many things that occur that the author warns she will not repeat in later installments so if you are thinking about skipping it don’t!! You will regret it. I loved seeing inside Ilyan’s mind, feeling his helplessness and utter devotion to Joclyn is both heartbreaking and heartwarming all at the same time. Ugh! and Wyn! The revelations about her character are both shocking and surreal! I knew from reading Eyes of Ember that there was more to her story after Thom’s reaction to the news she was captured, but it was nothing at all that I could have predicted. I love it when an author surprises me!
There’s not much world-building in this book as it is set around events that have already occurred, however I feel it is an excellent addition to this series. Ahhhh! and the ending! The last few chapters are set after Joclyn awakes and are told in her POV. Let’s just say there is a nice little surprise that will keep you on the edge of your seat for book four! Can’t wait for Soul of Flames!!!
