*Review* Scorned by Ginna Moran

Genre: YA Paranormal
Published: January 26, 2017
Pages: 223


After a devastating betrayal forces seventeen-year-old Cami Anders to accept a future she had never imagined, she learns how exhilarating life can be without the hassle of the world weighing her down. Cami turns her back on those who’ve wronged her and now faces a future with unlimited power, but at what expense? In the Veiled Realm, everything comes with a price.

When an unwelcome visitor threatens to break the imaginary wall she built to protect her soul, Cami finds herself drowning in a wave of unbidden emotions, and it makes her feel more alive than ever. But feeling alive reminds her of everything that was stolen from her, everything that she had lost. It reminds her that it isn’t only Hell that wants her soul.

Torn between the people she loves and the world she must fight for, Cami must make the ultimate decision—one that could destroy her life, her soul, and her entire world in the end.


I was hired to proofread this book. The only aspects of the story that I influenced were the spelling and grammar. If you feel that my connection to the book makes my review untrustworthy, so be it, but this is my honest review. 

This series took a surprise turn at the end of Haunted. And that turn starts to play out in Scorned. I liked the twist because I'd always kind of wondered what the daylight prison realm looked like and how it worked, and this went into quite a bit of detail about the mechanics of that. It also introduced a new character that left me feeling very disappointed for reasons that shall remain unnamed here because spoilers. 

I think this book made me feel the most sad for Cami. I mean her life has seemed pretty sucky throughout the series, but Scorned really seems to be like the ultimate low for her. One could almost believe that the entire world, Heaven, and Hell are all against her all at the same time. That would make just about anyone break, I think. So this book was probably my least favorite of the series, just because I spent so much of it feeling quite sorry for Cami. 

Overall I give Scorned 4.5 out of 5 stars. - Katie
