Scorched by Mari Mancusi
They came at noon, black shadows dancing across the sky, drowning out the sun. Their cries echoed through chambers and courtyards. Their fire blazed down narrow streets.
Some dropped to their knees in prayer. Others tried to flee. But in the end, they all fell down--ashes choking their lungs, flames singeing their flesh.
There was no place to run. No place to hide.
They would find you.
And when they did...you would surely burn.

Awesome, right? And that's just the prologue. My review upcoming!
And now for Shattered, which for those of you who don't know, is the sequel to Scorched.
Shattered by Mari Mancusi
The monster was back.
Somehow Scarlet could always tell. As if she had a sixth sense, warning her when he was near. A hint of smoke, tickling her nostrils, a low growl echoing in her ears. An uneasiness prickling at the back of her neck as her pulse throbbed in her throat--her consciousness gearing up for the inevitable fight or flight that was sure to come.
Should she face him this time? Or was it better to run?
With the monster, it was usually better to run.
Alright, that should be enough to whet your appetite for more. And if it isn't, check out what I have to say in my upcoming review.
