Not what I expected, but I still loved it!By E. MartinSo... I read another YA dystopian novel with a strong female lead. I can't help myself. I'm sorry.First off, this book was nothing like I expected. It follows Madi, a determined young woman who's parents have disappeared. When she learns that they were sent on a secret mission to Earth, she decides to go there and rescue them.Instead of a barren wasteland of long abandoned technology, the Earth is still populated with people who have hyper-evolved in the past few centuries.
There are tree people and lizard people and fish people. Madi discovers that even she has evolved--and has telekinetic powers. To be honest, I don't think she needed any special abilities and it didn't add much to the story.Through most of the book, Madi really isn't too focused on finding her parents and instead explores the diverse landscapes of Earth. Every setting is vividly detailed, beautifully described, and breath-taking. The settings paired with the developing relationship between Madi and Torian kept me reading--although the inter-species relationship did kind of creep me out.There wasn't much resolution at the end of the book, making me think that there will be another installment. And if there is, I will definitely pick it up. Madi's story isn't done, and I'm looking forward to reading what happens next.If you like beautiful settings and strong women, then you'll love The Scorching.1 of 1 people found the following review helpful.

When the main character, eighteen-year-old Madi, learns her parents are missing, she begins an unforgettable journey from a high tech Moon colony to the dystopian Earth. Throughout the novel, Madi grows from an impatient student to a brave young woman and expert fighter. Duncan uses rich sensory language, finely detailed characters, and her vast imagination to bring the story to life. Like Suzanne Collins Hunger Games, Duncans The Scorching is a world of its own with unforgettable characters and exciting adventures. I gladly added this book to my classroom library--its perfect for Young Adult readers who love Sci Fi novels.1 of 1 people found the following review helpful. Hooked for the sequel!By KelseyI wasn't quite sure what to expect when I first started reading The Scorching, but I was pleasantly surprised at the end! With the Hunger Games and Divergent becoming popular books then movies I kept waiting for a similar overused plot to show up. This is definitely not the case. The main character, Madi, takes the reader on an adventure through an Earth you could never imagine and the author, Libbi Duncan, has done a great job keeping the reader hooked in this story. Plus there is a teenage romance for those that like a good love story like I often do. Gravity generators and college classes make living on the moon boring. All eighteen-year-old Madi wants is to finish her training so she can become a shuttle pilot and explore the solar system. But when her parents disappear and the government refuses to help, she's forced to take matters in her own hands. Her search leads her to Earth, longabandoned after an apocalypse. Instead of a barren wasteland, Madi finds a garden paradise and a war that will change everything. The Scorching is a non-stop sci-fi adventure that contrasts the beauty of friendship and love with the harsh realities of life.
