Author's Description:

Once upon a time the world burned. 
Until a girl and her dragon smothered the flame. 
But the spark that ignited the apocalypse never went out. 
And the Scorch is about to begin. 

When Team Dragon rescues Emmy from the government lab, they think the future is finally safe. But they soon discover that Emmy has a secret--a secret so dangerous it could trigger the very apocalypse Connor and Caleb were sent back in time to prevent.

As a dragon hunter, Connor has committed his life to saving the world. There’s nothing he wouldn’t do to complete his mission… even if it meant betraying his brother and losing Trinity’s heart. Even if it meant doing the unthinkable. But a desperate choice meant to prevent The Scorch, may become the spark that sets the world aflame once more.

Fallon's Review:

Thank you Mari Mancusi for providing me with an ARC for review. This in no way affected my opinion in my review.

I was so excited for this conclusion and I loved how Mari wrapped this story up. She gives us glimpse into the past that Connor and Caleb know, which is the future for everyone else. Then she speeds up the timeline by focusing on important moments. I loved this because I was so nervous that not everything would fit in this final book. I was not disappointed. I got everything that any TEAM DRAGON fan would need. 

I adore the dragons in this book. Mari gives her dragons such unique personalities that you wish you had one for your very own. Is the Scorch inevitable? You will devour every page needing to know how it will all end. 

I love Caleb. I will always be team Caleb. He is a dragon lover and had all dragon lovers hearts in book one. I can not stand Scarlet and she annoyed me quite a bit but she has some redeemable qualities at the end. I wish I was as awesome as Trinity. I have adored her character from book 1 and I loved her all the way through. Connor is a character that I like but do not love. I did enjoy getting a little more backstory on the brothers. It helps us understand their tumultuous relationship a little more. 

If you have not read this series then you need to. Time travel and Dragons need I say more. I adore this series and it will forever stay on my bookshelf to read over and over again!
