Mari Mancusi

  ARC of Scorched


Don't leave me here... It starts with a whisper. At first Trinity thinks she's going crazy. It wouldn't be a big surprise--her grandpa firmly believes there's a genuine dragon egg in their dusty little West Texas town. But this voice is real, and it's begging for her protection. Even if no one else can hear it...

He's come from a future scorched by dragonfire. His mission: Find the girl. Destroy the egg. Save the world.

He's everything his twin brother Connor hates: cocky, undisciplined, and obsessed with saving dragons. 

Trinity has no idea which brother to believe. All she has to go by is the voice in her head--a dragon that won't be tamed.

    I think his name would depend on his personality so i can't reazlly said... until now i thought i would call him ryu ( but it could be a little too impersonal)

    thank you for this great giveaway

  1. sshah605 said...:

    Well if I had been gifted a dragon I would name him Kai!

  1. I'll call that dragon Kashmere. That's the first name came to my mind.

  1. Katie said...:

    I would call it Aiden which means little fire(:

  1. ilona said...:

    I have no idea - I guess I'd ask it it's name :D

  1. It would definitely depend on the personality, gender and color of the dragon. But I think I'd name it after a Gothic literary character like Eyre or Heathcliff.

  1. I;m not sure seeing that it would depend on what type of dragon (if it's one of those dragons that has different types of powers), the gender, and color.

  1. Drachen - Dragon in German (not very original I know lol)

  1. George. Unless he looked more like a Steve.

  1. I think I would name him Ash :)

  1. I would call me I dont know I guess it depends on the color...and all...maybe jace:) heheeh thanks for the giveaway:)

  1. I would have to see what the dragon looked like. how it was personality wise and name him or her from there. But I like the names Smokey or Ash.

  1. To name my dragon if someone gave one to me, it would depend on the personality and the color of the scale.

  1. Brynna said...:

    Ooh gosh... I feel like you have to actually meet a "pet" before you name it. Kaida, maybe, if it were a female.

  1. It would definitely depend on the personality of the dragon, but I could always go with Aithusa if it's a girl, or Kilgharrah is it's a boy! (Can you tell I really love Merlin?)

  1. Sayomay said...:

    Either Haku or Daga!
    Mary G Loki

    Thanks again for the awesome give and post!!

    My e-mail: mrsjtucker2012[at]gmail[dot]com

  1. I think I'd name him Talon (after one of the characters in a story I'm writing). Of course it would be a male dragon. Probably a bluish black coloring with a triangle marking somewhere on him.

    Riley. or Skyler.

  1. I would name my male Dragon Zoralth. It fits perfectly for a strong, beautiful and very powerful male Dragon. Definitely a perfect name for my Dragon!! Thank you so much for this AWESOME giveaway!!!

  1. Candhra Dimukha, named after a scorching hot mouldering pot on hell (Balinese Hindu belief). But shortly I would nicknamed him Chan-chan. Cute, no?

  1. Katherine said...:

    Centennial...I have no idea why

  1. Galadriel said...:

    I'd let my dragon name himself, so he wouldn't be mad at me for choosing a bad one

  1. LhasaLuma said...:

    The name would take a lot of thought, so I will think about that, but I will tell you one thing....I would be riding that dragon soooo fast :)

  1. Stacy said...:

    I would really have to meet him or her first, but the first name that comes to mind is Astoria

  1. Thank you for the giveaway I would name my dragon Ala-Akba "means god is great"

  1. Natasha W said...:

    I wouldn't name my dragon, it would name itself, so you will just have to wait until I get my dragon. Coming soon....:)

  1. Isa said...:

    I would name it Alaska. I'm not sure why but that's the name I chose. Thank you for the giveaway and enjoy your week. :

  1. I'd like to see him first to make sure the name was fitting but I like the name Iggy.

  1. I would be way too excited that I got a dragon to come with a creative name!

  1. I would name my dragon Mason... No idea why I just think its a good dragon name! :)

  1. I would name it Fufú hahaha


  1. Celia said...:

    I would name my dragon "Fuego" (it means fire, I know's not very original haha )

  1. Hopper..Stole it from Bloodlines! :)

  1. Wow. I have no idea. It'd depend on the dragons personality. Might be a Percy, might be a Fluffy, might be a Red. I have no idea without meeting the dragon.

  1. Depends on what it looks like/acts like. Maybe Smaug, to go with a classic? Or Hiccup, as a HTTYD nod. Or Benedict.

  1. I need to see it first. Off the top of my head, I would name him Clarence if it was male. Peggy if it was female.

    Tallulah A. @ A. Literary Mafia

  1. Hmmm this is tough because I think a name would depend on personality and color of said dragon :) I think I would name a male Drake or Draco because I love Braveheart :) If it is a girl it would have to be something as cool as Saphira from Eragon, but original with spirit :)

    I can't wait to get Scorched whether I win it or not :)

  1. Steph said...:

    I don't know! I would have to get to know it a bit better - see its personality, characteristics, physical attributes, etc.

    Thanks for the giveaway - I can't wait to read Scorched!

  1. BookLady said...:

    I would name my dragon Basilic. Thanks for the great giveaway!

    Raffle: Penny Pe

  1. sarah said...:

    If it was a female dragon I would maybe call her Freya or Jade, it would really depend on temperament and scale color and if it was male or female. Either way I would love to have a dragon as long it was a non evil one:)
