After a much needed-rest and shower things start to steadily go downhill again from there. Rejected by her sister she makes a run for it only to run into the very people she has just escaped from.Glimmer rescues Verity from being recaptured and takes her back to his hideaway. With plenty of personal reasons of his own to hate Razorfire (the evil local villain) Glimmer and Verity form a partnership.
As the story unfolds Verity has flashbacks to the night she was imprisoned and her father died. Struggling to remember she is both repulsed and drawn to the memories. Flailing around trying to find herself she is often consumed with rage and does not understand where this is all coming from. Working with Glimmer helps her reaffirm the her mantra, “I am not a bad person.”
Scorched is a really promising start to a new series by Erica Hayes. Having enjoyed other books by the author I was looking forward to reading this. Once again Erica weaves a powerful story with plenty of villainous mayhem. The world-building is well-crafted in a world where the augmented are shunned and feared by most.
