Joclyn may be trapped in the tormenting hell of Cail's mind, but the world around her isn’t the only thing hanging by a thread.

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.

Scorched Treachery is the mind bending third book to a highly acclaimed, complete, seven book series. Full of magic, adventure and an exhilarating plot that will keep you guessing; you don't want to miss a moment of this jaw dropping series that has been proclaimed as 'Do Not Miss' by USA Today.

Wow! Ok so I was not expecting to like this book as well as I did the first two, but I think I may have liked it more than them!

Scorched Treachery is book three of Rebecca Ethington’s Imdalind series and unlike the first two installments, it is told from the alternating POVs of Ilyan and Wyn during the two weeks that Joclyn is trapped in Cail’s mind. Ilyan struggles with the conflicting needs to protect and save Joclyn and protect what is left of his people. Wyn is just trying to survive her imprisonment by Edmund, but learns an awful truth about her past.

This story captured my attention from the beginning! And there are many things that occur that the author warns she will not repeat in later installments so if you are thinking about skipping it don’t!! You will regret it. I loved seeing inside Ilyan’s mind, feeling his helplessness and utter devotion to Joclyn is both heartbreaking and heartwarming all at the same time. Ugh! and Wyn! The revelations about her character are both shocking and surreal! I knew from reading Eyes of Ember that there was more to her story after Thom’s reaction to the news she was captured, but it was nothing at all that I could have predicted. I love it when an author surprises me!

There’s not much world-building in this book as it is set around events that have already occurred, however I feel it is an excellent addition to this series. Ahhhh! and the ending! The last few chapters are set after Joclyn awakes and are told in her POV. Let’s just say there is a nice little surprise that will keep you on the edge of your seat for book four! Can’t wait for Soul of Flames!!!
