Product description

Product Description

In a world where everyone wears a mask, you can't trust anyone… not even yourself.

Verity Fortune was once Sapphire City’s top crime-fighter, wielding her powers of telekinesis to battle the city’s most despicable villains.

Now, she’s consumed by a single burning desire -

Revenge.

Against those who took away her mask, her memory, and nearly her life.

Having escaped from the asylum they left her to rot in, Verity dons her mask once again and becomes the Seeker, a vigilante warrior for truth.

But when she unwittingly uncovers an evil conspiracy deep within her own family, she’s suddenly on the run, alone and hunted by those she thought were on her side…

Format: Kindle Edition
Scorched is an Urban Fantasy, that centers on the whole Good vs Evil plot line, however when everyone wears a mask, how do you know who is good and who is evil.

We meet Verity in a mental Institution undergoing test/torture treatment, After she manages to escape she goes to her family for help where she finds that nothing is like she remembers. Her father who owns a multimillionaire dollar company, is dead and in his place her uptight sister is now head of the company and running for Mayor. Their company however is just a front for their hidden talents, they are a crime fighting family, who wear costumes and keep their town safe.

Since Verity has been missing, Law and order has gone down the drain, with the Super Villains Razor fire and the Gallery taking over and making everyone’s life hell. Verity can’t just sit and watch everything her family has worked for go to hell so she decides to go against her family and go after the villains.

At the beginning of Scorched I felt a bit lost it was like I was picking up the second book of the series, as it just jumps straight into the story, after I worked out what was going on I was hooked, Verity has no Idea who she can trust after someone betrays her and lets the hospital know where she is after she goes to her family for help. Verity has nothing, the clothes on her back no money nowhere to go but she can’t stay with her family where it is not safe.

I love how it is not a straight up and down Good Vs Evil fight, that it shows just what humans are capable of and that anyone can be hiding a bad side. Scorched really kept me in suspense because even though you think the plot would be predictable it really isn’t, It is enough to keep you turning page after page.
