What a great read. This is a story for teens as well as adults. A very well written vampire love story that's full of intrigue right to the end. Seventeen-year-old Amber starts a new job as a housekeeper in an old mansion in Scotland, but she knows nothing about housekeeping and hates cleaning. She thinks household chores are a waste of time, so she's quite happy that the house is sparkling clean. Instead of working, Amber spends most of her time drooling over her new boss and snooping around the house. But there are secrets she doesn't know about the people that come to the house, and she has no idea there's a unique bond between her and one of them, or that she's been summoned there by a vampire.

Not long after she arrives at her new job, her brother turns up. He tells her about a stash of jewels hidden in the woods close by. They decide to steal them and run away to start a new life, but on the night of the robbery, her brother disappears. Scared, Amber goes looking for him. She doesn't find him, but stumbles upon a hut in the forest as well as the hidden treasures. Though she steals the jewels, she doesn't know they're actually the first prize in a paranormal race organised by a blood-crazed succubus demi-goddess. Suddenly, Amber has the ability to travel to other worlds and communicate with so-called ghosts, but every paranormal being out there is hunting for her. Amber doesn't know it, but someone out there is drawn to her blood, and they are determined to have it.

Amber is hilarious and a bit of a klutz sometimes, but she's very endearing. The story kept me turning the page in anticipation of what's going to happen next, but I could never guess. I highly recomend this book and I give it a five-star rating. Well deserved too.

I can't begin to tell you how great this book is. I would have given it a higher rating , but they only have 5 stars. Jayde scott creates a fantastic world consisting of shadows, vampires, hunters, fallen angels, succubus, the fates and where there are rules coming from three courts: The Lore Cort, Layla- A semi Goddess who sets up the games every 500 years and the Shadow's Queen Deidre, a high priestess of her own kind. I never knew how amazing this book was until I started to read and got sucked in into the story. Amber is a mortal, and by accident she wins the price everyone wants and would kill her for. The love she develops for Aidan thanks to the bond was not by choice and comes with a price. Throw in the Ex Rebecca, Aidan has not yet forgotten, I feel that everything is very well developed and interwoven to a fantastic plot that keeps you addicted. Then there is Cass, Lucifer's daughter, who loves chaos. And Angel, a Shadow's prisoner who becomes friends with Amber, and who tells her what Aidan did. It becomes all very interesting to the point that I didn't know anymore whom Amber could trust and whom not. There were twists I didn't expect. There is romance and there are quite a few surprises. I highly recommend to give this book a try. You won't be disappointed!

At the beginning of this book, and up through about half way, I had high hopes for this and greatly enjoyed the story. It seemed fast paced, decent characters, and great potential for development. Unfortunately, around the point where the main male character gets kidnapped, everything begins and continues to go wrong. At the beginning of the book, what I thought was somewhat funny dialogue between some of the secondary characters, becomes drawn out nonsense that adds nothing to and steadily detracts from the story. Several of the characters have multiple conversations that remind me of children bickering; even better, the poor dialogue adds nothing to the story. Instead, it appears as though the author is attempting to get rid of holes in the plot through excessive "witty" dialogue.

There are other elements to the story that make it ridiculous. Not less than three times is a character trapped in or attempting to get into a supposedly impenetrable dangerous area. Each time, the characters basically just walk in. There are some extra characters thrown in (such as expert shape-shifters and the like) that I think were supposed to make the easiness of the escapes and entrances seem plausible, but after the third time that method begins feeling like a cop-out. Also, I don't find it unreasonable to expect that people who have been tortured or bitten by snakes (creating baseball sized bumps no less) act like they are actually hurt for more than few pages. You'd think these characters just healed instantaneously the way this is written.

Unfortunately, the storyline doesn't make up for the poor dialogue and unrealistic events that occur. At the beginning, what sounds like a good story quickly turns into several disjointed events.

This book was so bad on so many levels it is hard to know where to begin. The author seemed to want to include so many things in one story that it became all gunked up with too many ideas and thoughts. Couple that with truly junior high writing style and you have what could either have been funny or awful. Sadly, this fell to the latter way too often. Take one heroine with no clue and who also seems to be a 17 but in a live away job, a thieving older brother, a 500 yo vampire who has never matured past 17 and who speaks and thinks like a high schooler, his vampire brother, some demons, some "shadows", an evil ex, odd magic powers that are given i a race - mix it all up and you have..a mess. I trudged through this book because there were glimpses here and there of good writing but mostly there was not. Don't waste your time, free or not, this book is not worth it.
