Jehenne Corbeaux flees England, and her mother's insistence that her dreams are just that and nothing more to seek refuge with her somewhat eccentric, seemingly harmless grandmother.

Her brief reprieve is shattered when a ghost pops up at her window, a mohican-sporting ghoul starts knocking at the door, and her grandmother reveals the Corbeaux families' gift (or curse, depending on who you ask about it).

The Key to Erebus has an intricate plot, interwoven with the author's 'Dark' series to create a vibrant and exciting world of all things paranormal. Vampires (of course), Witches (naturally), Shapeshifters, Ghouls, Fae... even an Angel and an Incubus settle comfortably into a story arc with endless possibilities.

Jehenne has received some backlash from readers for not jumping into bed with the male lead - Corvus - in spite of his looks, charm, powers of seduction, and, well... let's just say I wouldn't kick him out of bed for eating crisps (or bagels. This is France, after all), but I applaud her for it. If there's a list of Spunky Female Heroines out there, Jehenne is well deserving of a place in said list. She has dignity and moral integrity, she battles with herself over her choices and makes decisions that break her heart. She isn't perfect of infallible - she's an 18-year-old girl with hopes and fears like anyone else. She stands up for what she believes is right, no matter how many people she pisses off in the process, and that's what I love about her.

The Key to Erebus is a rollercoaster ride from beginning to end and the teaser for the next book in the series is cruel. It's evil incarnate. I'm on tenterhooks while I wait for the notification that I can finally buy the bloody thing!

There are truly not enough words to describe how much I loved this book. Emma Leech has become one of my favorite authors from the instant I read one of her books I knew her others book would not disappoint. You can’t help but become a part of the world she has created for her characters it’s like you are literally right there along with them throughout their journey. The exquisite details lure you in and keep you enthralled and immersed in each of her stories.
Jehenne Corbeaux is such a unique heroine although frustrating at times, she is very independent, resilient and quick witted. It’s easy to find her character alluring and relatable.
Jehenne flees her home in England and her mother’s expectations to be a normal girl and live a normal life and seeks refuge in her strange and peculiar grandmother.
Her world begins to shift into something inexplicable, ghosts are popping up, a ghoul and then a revelation from the grandmother about the Corbeaux family, she is a witch just like the rest of the women in her family.
The world she thought she lived in is nothing compared to the world she will become a part of. It’s full of vampires, witches, shapeshifters, ghouls, angels and other mythical creatures. It’s truly a magical world full of endless possibilities and intriguing revelations.
Corvus is breathtakingly beautiful and powerful vampire, who’s charming qualities will leave you breathless. Jehenne is drawn to him immediately and their lives are more entwined then they are first led to believe.
She battles with herself and the choices she has to make, she isn’t perfect and fears her decisions aren’t the best ones, but she must stand behind her choice to do what’s right no matter what people may think. I love that she doesn’t let what others think affect her choices and does what she feels is right.
Truly a remarkable and thrilling emotional rollercoaster from beginning to end I can’t wait to continue reading this series!

I just finished reading this book on Wattpad...AWESOME and AMAZING!!! This story just grips you and won't let go. The plot and descriptions had me visualizing everything so vividly...I swear it was me experiencing it all and not the characters in the book! LOL. I love all the different supernatural characters, not just those most commonly read/written about. I could barely put it down and read every free second I had. I'm really excited to see what Book 2 has in store...can't wait!!!

This was a really fantastic read and I look forward to book two. Our hero, Corvus, was thoroughly engaging and intelligent! Although the story is told solely through the eyes of our heroin, HIS emotions come through crystal clear, whether it's humor, desperation or anger. (Ahem, and he sounds delicious)

I found our heroin, Jehenne, to be a strong female lead. She has a new world thrust on her rather quickly and she adapts well...for most of it anyways. I did find some of her behavior...selfish and feeble at times. I imagine this is her coming of age and learning. I found myself irked by her at times, but by no means does it detract from the story. It seems to have done the opposite for me, as i cant wait to read the second book, to see if she has matured!

I noticed only a few grammatical/spacing errors. This is a wonderful paranormal world with vampires, shape-shifters, witches, faeries and more. You care for the side characters and their stories. You will find sensual moments and real language, but truly done in a tastefully REAL manner.

While each author creates their own version of paranormal worlds and lives, many are "cookie cutter" blah or so detailed you lose the story, but i found this one to have a great balance to draw you into both the setting and story. Kudos :)
