Scorched was a surprise to me. After reading the synopsis of the book I was worried it would not live up to my expectations. After reading the book I was pleasantly surprised that it surpassed my expectations. The characters, culture, and world created by Mancusi is filled with deceit, dragons, and wonders enough to sate any reader.
The future IS filled with fire and death as the dragons have taken over the world. Two organizations are sending representatives back in time to stop the dragon Apocalypse. Enter, Connor and Caleb. Twin brothers from the future fighting for opposite sides of the war. Connor is the dragon slayer. His mission is to go back in time and make sure the Apocalypse never occurs by killing the dragon. Caleb's mission is to save the dragon.
Trinity is not just your typical female heroine, she is much more. Faced with a world changing decision, she must make the correct choice or damn the world to an eternity of fire and death. Trinity must make this decision based on the opinions and prejudices of Connor and Caleb. What decision will she chose? Save the dragon, or kill the dragon?
This book is packed with action from cover to cover. The dragons in this world are everything I have ever wanted. The culture of both sides of the war is filled with prejudices that rival "real world" issues. The deceit and double crossing will leave you wondering who to trust, and have you on the edge of your seat! Plus....... there is some swoon-worthy romance that will have you wanting both Caleb and Connor.... :) I just cant chose!!!
Waiting on the edge for the next book.....
