This series is getting better and better and better! I wish i could give it more then 5 stars.
This novel was brilliant, I got to read Wyn and Illyan's point of view. Both characters are actually my favourite in this whole series, so i loved seeing this insight. I cried, got scared, freaked out! It was amazing!

JUMPING straight into Soul of Flame now... best be off!!

I am truly disappointed with how this book turned out. I was expecting the story to continue from where it left off, but all I got was a lot of background story on Wyn (which I really didn't need to understand the book). I would have been happier if the author had written a Novella on Wyn's story, which I would not have read and carried on in the book. When the continuation finally started off where I wanted it too I was on the second to last chapt

A look into the rest of the characters' minds during Eyes of Ember. Fantastically written, it answered many questions I was left with after Kiss of Fire and Eyes of Ember, and it opened up all new questions leaving me helpless and impatient for Soul of Flame in December. I am in love with this series; I just want to crawl inside of the universe the author has created and live there forever. ...more

This was BY FAR, THE BEST THING REBECCA L. ETHINGTON HAS WRITTEN. This was one of the best books I have read all year! THIS WAS MIND-BLOWING, MIND-NUMBINGLY, FANTASTIC. My God, where are you Rebecca i need to kiss you!

Also i would like to mention if you haven't caught on this is the 3rd in a series, there will be spoilers not only from the first book *i know gasp* but also the second book *double gasp!* so please don't look at this review unless you don't care about the happenings of the second

I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.

Let me just start with saying WOW! This book completely surprised me! We were forewarned at the end of the last book that this would be from Wynn and Ilyan’s point of view (which many people seemed upset about) but after reading this – let me tell you, you had NOTHING to be worried about!

The book begins from Wyn’s point of view just before Edmund and the Trpasliks attack Imdalind while Ilyan and Jocelyn are in

A brilliant addition to this fantastic series! Scorched Treachery had secrets, surprises, thrills, and a sprinkle of romance. I loved this book!

For those who have read the series, this book is set in the time when Joclyn is trapped inside Cail's mind and can't get out. While she was battling inside her head, the battle continued outside. And, this book tells us about what happened while Joclyn was away.

Scorched Treachery was told in two point of views: Ilyan and Wyn, so I'll talk about those two

This story is told from the POV's of Ilyan and Wyn during the time that Joclyn is trapped inside the mind of Cail, which takes place in book two, Eyes of Ember. Being able to see what happens during this time through their eyes adds another layer of depth to this already incredible story! Ethington does a fantastic job of deepening each character, their feelings, their thoughts and emotions.

We see through Wyn's eyes the torture that takes place at the hands of Edmund, her father Timothy and her

I gotta say right off the bat that I was disappointed and I feel like this book could have been a companion novella to the series and it wasn’t needed. I mean, most of it was a recap from the other characters POV’s. Pretty much the whole book up until the last 15 percent so I was really upset about that honestly. The second book left on such a cliffhanger that I was all ready to jump in and find out what happens. There are a few aspects in the book that we

Scorched Treachery is Book 3 in the Imdalind series.This is Very similar to Eyes of Ember as it is From Wyn and Ilyan's Point of View.While it is similar it is also very different.You may wonder why exactly did Rebecca choose to write this book now rather then later and not go straight to the next part of the series.Well let me be the first to tell you this was needed.There is so much going on that We,The Readers were not able to delve into in Eyes of Embe

Oh my gosh, my heart!


How could I have ever doubted this book?

I can't even...gah...speak! Reading Wyn's and Ilyan's POVs was like nothing I expected or anticipated. I thought two books from Joclyn's POV would make me uninterested in this book, but boy was I WRONG!

The plot was amazing, the characters were amazing, and I just fell in love with everybody even more than before. It didn't even feel like I was missing anything, like the change in POV in comparison to the first two books didn't mean a

No spoilers or recapping here I just wanted to gush a little. I think I might be a bit obsessed with this series. I seriously fell in love. The story was so refreshing.

I was very nervous to read this book. I knew that Rebecca was a brilliant author, and that she knew what was best for the story. I had loved reading the books and now she was changing it up by giving us the perspectives of two of the other main characters. I have feelings that will never go away. I am so please that Rebecca did this book from a different view. The love, the pain, the care, the everything blew me away.

Oh Rebecca Ethington, how you love to torment me. I "suffered" through the amazingness that was Kiss of Fire and Eyes of Ember only to hope that the third book in this series could wrap up my "suffering" in amazingness and let me see the happy ending that is Jocelyn and Ryland figuring out that Edmund is the ass that he his and beating him senseless. Then they could be together in happiness! But NO!! This book is instead a cover all of what happened while Jocelyn is out of it, and also how Ilyan ...more

Before reading Scorched Treachery, I was looking at this book as just a filler until Book 4 comes out. I mean Jocelyn isn't the main character in Scorched Treachery and it takes place during the time of Book 2, so I planned on reading this because it is part of the series but I wasn't looking as forward to it as Book 4. I was so wrong about this book! It wasn't boring or repetitive. So much happens and is revealed by telling the story from Ilyan and Wyn's point of views, and I think Wyn and Ilya ...more

This book is basically book #2, only it's told from Wyn's and Ilyan's perspectives - which I LOVED. Wyn's chapters were difficult as we get to see first hand what is being done to Ryland (and everyone else that Edmund has captured). Ilyan's chapters were heartbreaking as we see everything he experiences while Joclyn is trapped in the touha. Definitely not a light, happy read but I love love LOVED it.

Ok these books just keep getting better and better. Not always the case for sequels. This is the 3rd in the series, and is told from Ilyan and Wyn's point of view. It's the 2nd book told from their perspective, but so much more happens in this book. So many more secrets are revealed, some jaw dropping. Oh, and that COVER! Oh my goodness. I would give this book an extra star just for that cover. I'm on to read the 4th book like right now. It's so refreshing to find a series that is clean yet roma ...more

Another great book in this series. So far every book has been wonderful. The story is just perfect so far. This book was mostly in Wyn and Ilyan's views. It was awesome to get inside their heads and feel their struggles and pains. I will be excited to get back to Joclyn's, though.

Reread 3/15 and loved it again! This one is just so sad and torturous for everybody.

Another read. Still good. On to book 4.

A very informative continuation of the Imdalind series.

This book is, in its right, the third book but it also ties up some loose ends from the second. It focuses on Wyn and Ilyan’s stories and you find out a bit more of their stories.

It is a very good book and had me flipping pages as the end drew near. Another excellent job by the author for a wicked story and great plot twists! Again, I cannot fault the world building and structure that has been put into place. I also love the use of the Czec

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 im

It was OK. Like other reviewers I was not sure how I would like this novel since it was told from both Wyn and Ilyan's perspective. Despite the fact the Joslyn is not my favorite character, I felt pretty invested in her after two books. It worked, though, because it showed what was happening elsewhere and I think it gave some good background into the abuse and violence Ryland suffered, making him a much more sympathetic character to me. Like others I thought Wyn was incredible and the kind of he ...more

It took me longer than usual to finish this book. I think maybe I just wasn't interested in reading a book that I had already read, but with a different narrator (or two). It's not that I don't appreciate reading about Wyn's back story or Ilyan's love for Joclyn, but I was looking forward to reading from Joclyn's POV after she got out of that mind-trap at the end of Eyes of Ember. So I wasn't totally enthralled until the end of Scorched Treachery, when Joclyn woke and saved Wyn. That was the bes ...more

First off. THE COVER. Wow. Ummm. Have I mentioned that I am Team Ilyan? (But, honestly, who isn't?? Yum.) The cover is probably one of the most epic renditions of a character that I have seen. Usually I cringe at the covers that try to show a beloved character and just... fail. But Scorched Treachery, the cover.... oh the cover. It is the PERFECT Ilyan. The agony, the strength, the hotness. It is all there. So, kudos to you, Rebecca Ethington. You have achieved cover perfection. In fact, I might ...more

Scorched Treachery is the third book in the Imdalind Series. You need to have read the first two books in this series to understand where this one is at. It's actually the second book but told from the points of view of Wyn and Iilyan instead of Josyln.

At first I was a little bit disappointed that I'd be reading the same story again, but I'm so glad that the author has written this series this way as there was so much happening to the other characters while Jos was stuck in her connection with R

7/2/18: So far I’m pissed. All Wyn had to yell (instead of run) was Ovailia how could you betray us! And Ilyan would have heard the whole thing. It’s irritating and I have to keep reading...grrrrrr! Okay, I’m all finished again and I’m feeling the same. Not quite enough happened to continue the story, the info we received was good, but not worth the pages and pages of dungeon and torture. I skimmed the crap outta that. I am happy I can read another book though!!

To me this book is full of mixed emotions and I don't really know if I loved it more or less than the other two or not. I mean with me being the Ilyan and Joclyn fan it was my triumph to read about how he finally discovered how he loved her and I couldn't stand it I couldn't resist I just yelled


Then not to mention that I felt awful for Wyn, Ryland, and Sain. The stuff that they went through in prison was awful, but no one had it as bad as Wyn. We learn about her past and how she got those strang

2 stars. (Warning, spoiler to those people who haven't read book 2).
The majority of this book was a recap of book 2, but from other character's points of view. A lot of it, I thought was unnecessary. I thought those recap POV scenes could have been left out and inserted into an extras section on the author's website. While alone it would have been interesting to read, it just didn't mesh well with the book. It didn't feel natural or remotely seamless. For example, Ilyan's shared scenes with Joce

I really thought that I would be miserable with a book revolving around 2 POVs, one of which I was sure would bore me, based on story we already read in the last book. I mean who really cares about her best friend Wyn's POV right? WRONG! Granted, it was slow in the beginning but it all made sense in the end. Now I can't believe how silly I was to think that we didn't need to know what every other character went through because that is what this book delivers. We even get to
