Publisher's Summary

Most humans have fallen prey to the scorch. Only one will rise...a hero.  

Who would have imagined that war would turn out to be one of the good guys? Yes, one of the four horsemen of the apocalypse - that war! Mere mortal Chloe Etain did, that's who. 

She's still an unstoppable human and he's still an immovable beast, and now, they know how to stop the other horsemen. But, will Bram surrender to his beast, losing himself completely in the process, all to save Earth and humanity? All to save...her?

Scorched Uprising

I love the story line! This short story is waaaay to short! Only part id change is that break between chapters; its to long. I had to keep checking if I accidentally paused the book or not.

Dang!

I need more, more, more! I wasn’t ready for this one to end.

Chloe absolutely shines in this one & Bram is right there with her. There’s more magic, more action, and some heartbreak. I cannot wait to see how book 3 follows this one up!

Voice talent: as with the first book, I much enjoyed the narrator’s passion and flow with the words!

2.5, round up to 3 (story)

I’m only going to write one review for the first two books (which is what I read). The reason is that I feel this is a serial, not a series and, and as such, both books contain one single story that doesn’t break. I don’t actually understand why it’s broken in two. Neither book is so long as to prohibit their remaining as one. I can only imagine the same can be said for the rest of the series. I got no conclusions in either of these two, so I doubt I’d get one in the next or the next, etc.

There was a time I felt like I was making this point, about the difference between a serial and a series, every day. I even wrote a ranty blog post about it. But the trend finally died down and I haven’t had to in a while. I guess all those same books are making it to audio now. Because this is the second time in a week I’ve written a review for a ‘series’ that is actually a serial in my opinion.

So, on to the actual review. I don’t want to be mean, but I don’t think this was particularly good. I think the author probably had a good idea, but didn’t quite manage to get it onto paper. The hero and heroine meet in the prologue (meet and nothing more) and then when all hell breaks loose in chapter one (some time in the future) they are meant to already be friends and at least one is in love. The story moves from there. HOWEVER, the reader has been left out of all of it. Thus, I didn’t feel Bram’s affection for Chloe at all. How could I? We don’t see any of it prior to him basically telling her he loves her. NONE. In fact, I initially thought they were still virtual strangers.

We also don’t see any of the research Chloe, Bram and the professor have been doing to understand the Scorch. So, when it happens right out of the gate, the reader is clueless and basically unconcerned. And Chloe seems to know things she shouldn’t, because I didn’t know what she’d been researching. So, how could she recognize a royal fay [fae] on sight? No idea.

Then there is the rather large and abrupt shift in Chloe’s personality that happens at roughly 50% into the first book. She goes from teary and afraid to kick-butt superhero in a split second (in a seriously stupid move too). Though she does remain a too perfect Mary Sue throughout, as well as too good at everything, mastering magic and weaponry in an instant, without effort.

Then there is the fact that I think the author tried to get too much in. There are fae (high, low and royal), the four horseman of the apocalypse, witches, werewolves and vampires. And none of it given any real world building to understand it all.

The narrator did a fine job, except that it’s based in Seattle. Chloe started out sounding perfectly American. But about halfway through the fist book she turned English, apparently. Then in book two, she’s American again.

All in all, this was not a winner for me. Mechanically the writing is fine but the story feels barely sketched out.

Note: I received audio codes for this book. I chose to listen and review it, however.

Fab!

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

As book one it’s aimed at young adults but I really enjoyed it and would listen to them both again.
Am eagerly awaiting book three now.

Brilliant

I was given this free book, I promised to leave an honest and voluntary review on audible once I'm done.
This 2nd instalment is just as gripping as the first book, it's brilliantly written and the narration is of course just as good as the 1st book.
The mythological aspect is a nice addition, the plots, twist and turns keep you on edge.
It's an epic fantasy tale that's totally enjoyable,
you'll not be disappointed by this serise.
