Staff Pick of the Week: Scorched by Mari Mancusi

Scorched

This week’s staff pick is the young adult fantasy novel Scorched by Mari Mancusi. Post-apocalyptic time travel, reminiscent of the Terminator movies, with dragons and a love triangle!

Save the Dragon. Destroy the World.

Trinity Foxx is used to her grandfather’s crazy stories, so she doesn’t believe the latest treasure he brought home to their failing West Texas museum is a real dragon’s egg. Not until Connor Jacks, a dragon hunter from the future, tells Trinity that the world is about to be wiped out by a fiery dragon war―unless they find a way to stop it.

Save the Dragon. Save the World

But Connor’s not the only one after the egg. His twin brother Caleb believes dragons have the power to save mankind and must be protected. Caleb has seen too many dragons destroyed in the war-scorched future―he’ll do whatever it takes to save this one.

With a host of enemies hot on her heels, Trinity must decide who to believe. Connor the brave solider? Caleb the cocky rebel? Or the baby dragon that’s starting to whisper to her…saying they are destined? The fate of the world may depend on her choice. —Amazon
