  1. Verity Fortune aka The Seeker escapes from a torturous mental asylum to find her life in ruins and her family of super heroes set to appease the city s greatest super villain rather than fight him.Verity soon hooks up with the only other super hero currently fighting the good fight, but she s far from well She keeps having seriously disruptive flashbacks to the events that put her in the asylum, and her memory of them is patchy at best Meanwhile her family is actively hostile towards her while p [...]


  2. DNF Not the Super Hero Story I Wanted.Trigger Warnings This book has graphic, gory depictions of physical and psychological torture There is a ton of ableist slurs in reference to mental illness Some problematic portrayals of the main character s mental state and a bit of internalized misogyny At first I was intrigued by this book The opening of the story is dark and heavy on visceral horror, giving it a the gritty feel of a modern horror movie like Hostel or Saw Which puts it into the Urban Fa [...]


  3. 2.5 stars, rounding up There is an interesting premise in here, but in the end, I just found the plot convoluted and yet weirdly easy to guess the twists , the characters unbelievable, and the writing a bit too purple.


  4. Whoa What a ride that was I swear I turned pages on my Kindle so fast smoke was flying off them I also think that anybody who buys this book to read should be provided with their very own Augmented Superhero costume to wear whilst reading it Because this book was a FUN RIDE and I wanted some of the action Right, so settle down now and tell the nice people what the book is about In a world where everyone wears a mask, you can t trust anyone not even yourself.Verity Fortune was once Sapphire City [...]


  5. 4.5 starsI haven t read anything by Erica Hayes before, but after reading a few reviews for Scorched, and seeing that it was on NetGalley for review, I decided to give it a go And I m so pleased I did After the first chapter I realised that this was going to be my kind of book The author pulls no punches the writing is gritty, witty and dark just the way I like it.The heroine, Verity Fortune, aka The Seeker, is complex and slightly damaged, but completely badass She s a superhero among a family [...]


  6. Mon avis en Fran aisMy English reviewI enjoyed the books by Erica Hayes that I had the opportunity to read, so when I saw the release of a new series, I was immediately intrigued Well I m curious by novels featuring vigilantes and even if I have some in my TBR pile, it is true that I had not read any so far However, I can now say that I ultimately had a great time with this new story.Verity is locked in a psychiatric hospital for a while now, undergoing imposed incessant treatments But after a w [...]


  7. Superherogeekaliciousextrabadassocious This was about as much nerdy super fun as you could squeeze into a single book, and a delightful read from start to finish Hayes did a truly wonderful job of creating the superhero metropolis vibe, complete with smarmy politicians, secret identities, public showdowns, the lot For comparison, I d say it was very Batman esque especially with the added element of a crime fighting duo of awesomeness that is Glimmer and Seeker I hope to see a lot of those two i [...]


  8. I suppose I should have read the reviews rather than just seeing that this book had an average of 4.5 stars by previous reviewers I would say that had I read one of the reviews in particular, I might have saved myself the 0.99 that I wasted on this awful, cliche ridden novel I did read the entire book, which is clear evidence of my masochistic streak over riding my intuition From about 50 pages in, my gut was telling me that this story was just not going to get any better But I hung in, partly b [...]


  9. When I saw this cover on Netgalley, I just had to get it I loved the imagery of all that black hair becoming rain on the city, the darkness all around with just the one ray of light from the helicopter Okay, putting that into words, it sounds cheesy, but the cover just worked for me When I saw that the story was about a female crime fighter, I just had to read it Verity Fortune has been locked up for weeks being tortured in an asylum She finally manages to break away from her captors and escape [...]


  10. More reviews at losttobooksActual rating 4.5 I ve been eagerly waiting for this book, hoping it would go up on Netgalley, since I saw the cover I was really excited to read an urban fantasy by this publisher and the cover had me hooked so I hit the send to kindle button instantly when I saw it had been uploaded and I definitely wasn t disappointed.Scorched had me intrigued right for the start with Verity s inner conflicts about whether she is a bad person or not It set up the themes in the book [...]


  11. Source I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read to review basis Thanks to HarperCollins UK, HarperImpulse and NetGalley This book started out a little confusing but okay, but as it went on I got really bored.Verity was just a confusing character really At the start of the book it was like she barely knew her own name, and it was really difficult to know whether to believe what she told us was going on or not Unfortunately this didn t really improve over the course of the book, a [...]


  12. I received this ARC via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.The cover drew me in Isn t it a thing of beauty When I requested this I assumed it would be paranormal than it was In fact it was fantasy than anything People who go around using their powers known as the Augmented to stop evil, dressed up in disguise Superheroes I was quickly drawn into the story within the first chapter when we see Verity struggle to remember who she is and that she isn t a bad person after being tortured by [...]


  13. What I liked.Beautiful, almost poetic descriptions that gave me a serious dose of author envy Also I guessed who the real traitor was, which might seem a bad thing but made me feel better, only to get caught out by the main plot twist it s a doozie These carefully set up plot points kept me on the edge of the seat with a serious what will happen next anticipation Great general tension throughout, and plenty of action and adventure as you d expect from a superhero story And the bad guy is BAD Not [...]


  14. The first book in a new urban fantasy series is a thrilling action packed read Once a crime fighter, now a vigilante, Verity Fortune is consumed with one burning desire revenge against those who took away her mask, her memory and nearly her life.This steady to fast paced and smooth flowing plot keeps readers on their toes with lots of suspense, action and drama The author brings the story to life with well written scenes and details that capture the imagination and inspire vivid images that make [...]


  15. This is an addictive, gripping and well written superhero story with echoes of Batman and The X Men.Verity Fortune, Seeker, escapes from captivity where doctors have kept her special abilities suppressed and attempted to destroy her memories One thing she knows for sure is that the supervillain Razorfire killed her father, and she is determined to hunt him down and get revenge However, she has been gone a long time, and someone in her family is her enemy Soon she is a fugitive, desperate for all [...]


  16. I received a free copy of this book via netgalley in exchange for an honest review.This book was spiderman meets superman meets girl interrupted The first chapter had it s hooks in me from the word go and then they lessened a little as I kept reading It started as a kind of upside down Spiderman, instead of him fighting someone who is really rich, she is really rich and her father owns a large company and they are fighting the bad guys.The story flowed well and I really enjoyed where it took me, [...]


  17. I received a copy from Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review Actual rating 2.5Scorched started out okay, but i lost interest The characters weren t awful, but i can t say i liked them They had plenty of annoying moments, and Verity constantly thinking I m ugly got on my nerves I liked the first two chapters, but the rest was quite dull The pacing was too slow It dragged, and dragged, and i thought the book would never end Overall, Alright, but way too slow.

  19. Scorched starts right in the action with Verity, aka augmented superhero The Seeker , escaping from an asylum She s been locked away by her arch nemesis for months and when she finally escapes, a lot has changed She doesn t know who to trust and she certainly isn t safe Neither is Sapphire City She might just have jumped from the frying pan and into the fire.As this story begins, we re dropped right in the superhero world This suited me, because I m a geek and I wanted to get straight on with th [...]

  22. Scorched is pretty much acquired taste this is for those who love stories about superheroes and villains Since I keep whining that I want to see of superhero romancesis was right up my alley DNow, I have to say that calling it romance is stretching this is UF, it s plot focused and action packed The story opens with Verity Fortune running away from asylum where she was held against her will and her powers were contained Verity is one of the augmented, she is a superhero Seeker with strong powe [...]
