In book one of the Ancient Legends series, Amber finds herself in Scotland taking a job as a housekeeper at the McAllister Mansion. She needs the money for college, so she made the decision and will be working for Aidan McAllister for the next two months. Things get crazy when she gets there. The taxi driver refuses to drive up the driveway, so she has to drag her suitcase all the way up to the house. Then she hardly sees her boss. She spends her days pretty much alone in the house. What makes everything better is her brother shows up with another get rich quick scheme. He wants her to help him steal jewels that he found in an abandoned shack in the woods.
When they attempt the theft things don’t go as planned. Amber ends up in the shack and she happens to find a scroll with a bizarre verse and a few gems. Nothing that Dallas alluded there would be. She grabs what see finds and flees the shack. She almost gets caught by a man with a whip of fire.
After that night she sees Aidan more often and meets his brother and friends. She is drawn to him but feels guilty because of her boyfriend Cameron. When Cassandra reveals everyone’s secrets, Amber is shocked. She has accidentally found herself stuck in the middle of a paranormal world. She has received the gift of sight for ghosts and everyone now wants her. She has no clue what she is doing.
She has to make a deal with the shadows to save Aidan. Aidan, Kieran and company have to rescue her from the shadows. Aidan explains that he needs her to go after a book of spells. Amber is confused. She believes that Aidan only wants her for the book. It’s only when Layla attacks her that she believes he really wants her. Now they are partnering up with the shadows to go after the book. Amber has to go to the borders of death to find the location. Of course nothing is ever easy.
The paranormal world the author created was fascinating to me. I liked how the storyline began and evolved. Amber was hired by Aidan as a housekeeper. Turns out he is more than she thought. She also gets pulled into his world accidentally thanks to her brother. This girl has such horrible luck.
The decisions she makes are ridiculous at times. I really got to the point where I didn’t like her. She constantly got on my nerves. When her youth and immaturity showed through, I almost stopped reading the story. If I don’t like the characters it makes it difficult to read the story. She was my least favorite of the bunch. The rest of the characters I liked. They were hilarious. Kieran was a clown and Cass gave it right back to him. Their bickering was one of the highlights of the story. The ending was ok, a little confusing. I hope the next book is better. I give this one a 3 out of 5.
