Goodreads

Trinity
Don’t leave me here... It starts with a whisper. At first Trinity thinks she’s going crazy. It wouldn’t be a big surprise—her grandpa firmly believes there’s a genuine dragon egg in their dusty little West Texas town. But this voice is real, and it’s begging for her protection. Even if no one else can hear it...

Connor
He’s come from a future scorched by dragonfire. His mission: Find the girl. Destroy the egg. Save the world.

Caleb
He’s everything his twin brother Connor hates: cocky, undisciplined, and obsessed with saving dragons.

Trinity has no idea which brother to believe. All she has to go by is the voice in her head—a dragon that won’t be tamed.

Read It File It (Short Review: I have to admit that the 2nd half of Scorched by Mari Mancusi really hooked me! The beginning wasn’t bad but it took a bit till I was invested in the characters (Trin is a great leading character but neither brother was hooking me in the beginning. After everything clicked though the book was hard to put down. It was just downright enjoyable! Confession: I just started playing WOW again so the dragons were a big pull to me reading this story and Mari didn’t let me down!

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated By Miriam Volle / Length: 9 hrs and 48 mins


I thought Mariam Volle did a decent job with the narration. I think book 2 will probably work better for me than book 1 because I am now used to her male voices (those took me a bit to warm up too). Her pacing was terrific though and I thought she was spot on for Trin!
