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. A great read that I finished in one day and night.Molly Gumnut Rescues a Baby Bandicoot (Series, Novel)Velvet Ball and The Broken Fairy (Series Novel)
