“Waiting On” Wednesday: Scorched Skies

Lonely girl with suitcase at country road.

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that I’m eagerly anticipating.

I’m a HUGE Samantha Young fan. I’ve read all of her books (except one novella), and loved every one of them. I read Smokeless Fire, the first book in this series, a few months ago and I was immediately ready for the next book. I loved the cover for Smokeless Fire, but this one is gorgeous too, no? I love how vibrant the blue is. And the buff guy wearing a cape doesn’t hurt either. ;-)

If you haven’t read her books, look them up and give ‘em a try. Start with Smokeless Fire, it’s wonderful! I know after you finish it, you’ll be just as excited for Scorched Skies as I am.

Ari’s life has irrevocably changed. Her time is split between dodging the political machinations of the terrifying Sultan Jinn and The White King, reining in Charlie who has been granted a wish that could destroy him, and trying to navigate the choppy waters of her now very complicated relationship with guardian Jinn, Jai.

All of that fades in comparison, however, when heartbreak once again seeks out Ari and she realizes she can no longer avoid her connection to the Jinn world. Instead she must stand and face it head on.

Especially now a formidable sorcerer has discovered her existence. 

To save not only herself, but the rest of the Jinn world, Ari will have to team up with The Guild of hunters to track the sorcerer down… before he finds her, takes her, and bleeds the power of the Seal from her to hold all at his command.
