Scorched by Darkness is the second book in Alexandra Ivy’s Dragons of Eternity Series. I haven’t read the first one in this series but loved this book regardless.
The story revolves around Torque who is half dragon/half fire imp who is betrothed to Rya, a half dragon/half Shinto. Rya is missing and its Torques job to find her, with a little help from Levet the gargoyle.
When Torque and Rya actually meet is when the story really unfolds and comes to life. Up until then Torque has always been too busy being a soldier to go through with mating ritual with Rya but once he sees her all that is pushed aside. Rya is brave, strong and doesn’t let Torque or anyone else push her around. Torque is loyal, strong and would now do anything for his beautiful mate.
Scorched by Darkness has twists and turns, turmoil, love, hate and just about every other emotion you can feel. It was beautifully written and I highly recommend this book to anyone.
