Scorched Treachery by Rebecca Ethington
While Joclyn is trapped in the tormenting hell of Cail’s mind, 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.
My Review: 5 Stars
Wow... wow... wow!! Scorched Treachery was even more amazing than I thought it would be!! After reading Eyes of Ember I had several questions come up and I was curious as to what was happening "behind the scenes" with Wyn and Ilyan. Man oh man! Rebecca Ethington did NOT disappoint me! I LOVED Scorched Treachery!! I swear her books just get better and better each time one is released!!
I have said it before in other reviews and I will say it again in this one. I can always tell when a book is going to be a winner for me when I can shut out everything going on around me and enter into the same place as the characters in a book. And Ms. Ethington did just that... AGAIN!! I was sent on an emotional roller coaster and loved every minute of it! I felt happy... sad... angry... hopeful... stressed... thrown for a loop or two. My advice to anyone that reads Scorched Treachery is to just go with the flow... don't try and figure things out because just when you think you have... BAM!! Curve ball!! I loved seeing how everything really did tie in together and every single question I had was answered. Of course there were other questions that came up but hey! That's what book 4 is for right?! ;o)
Thank you Rebecca for writing such an amazing series!! I am so glad that I stumbled upon it by accident. It has quickly become of one my favorites!! I can't wait to see what you have in store for us in book 4!! It's going to kill me but I already know beyond a shadow of a doubt that it will be amazing and definitely worth the wait!!
