5.0 out of 5 stars A compelling read,
This review is from: CAGED (Book 1, The Caged Series) (Kindle Edition)I bought this book as I had read (or rather devoured) the entire set of Amy A. Bartol's 'Premonition Series'. I follow Amy on facebook and she was recommending it. I'm pleased I took her advice as it was a fantastic read; literally a page-turner and I plan on buying the rest of the series. If you enjoy a bit of fantasy fiction, you will love this! Personally I'd recommend this to anyone from the age of 15 as some scenes could be viewed as a little graphic.

5.0 out of 5 stars CAGED,
This review is from: CAGED (Book 1, The Caged Series) (Kindle Edition)Really enjoyed reading this book, I loved the fast pace of the storyline and the originality (I've read my fair share of Werewolf books), it sucked me right in and had me up quite late due to me not being able to put it down. I have now purchased the entire series and cannot wait to find out where Ruby, Sean and Coopers lives go next.......

4.0 out of 5 stars A great start,
This review is from: CAGED (Book 1, The Caged Series) (Kindle Edition)This is the first book I've read by this author and it won't be the last.
Ruby, the main character is not your average stereotypical character. She's sarcastic, irritable, not always likeable and has, it must be said, appalling judgement at times but this just makes her a bit more realistic given everything she has already experienced by the time the story begins. You will sit reading, thinking don't do it but she will anyway.
I'm looking forward to seeing how Ruby develops in the following books which is why I've held back and given this book 4 stars.
A great start to the series

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent twist on paranormal romance,
This review is from: CAGED (Book 1, The Caged Series) (Kindle Edition)What an amazing way to bring a werewolf story to life, full of wit, suspense, drama and romance all thrown in. The characters played out well together, all covering a range of personality and emotion between them to bring diversity and interest. The immaturity of the main characters emphasises a personal growth the author develops in her that i adored. I just wished it was longer; the end does serve its purpose and leave you wanting to read an extra instalment. An all-round fantastic story, that's modern and edgy in writing, which also maintains a great talent of written work. I really liked it x
5.0 out of 5 stars caged by amber lynn natusch,
This review is from: CAGED (Book 1, The Caged Series) (Kindle Edition)Was recommended this read by my fb friends, and i cant say i was disappointed.
You are thrown into a roller coaster of a story, who does she trust, who dont you trust.
At some points i didnt want to read on as the suspense was too much.
I downloaded the second book as soon as i had finished the first one.
This is one fab read
5.0 out of 5 stars The most unexpected, remarkable story. Outstanding!,
This review is from: CAGED (Book 1, The Caged Series) (Kindle Edition)I have never been so emotional, so moved and captivated by a story that was completely unusual and original like nothing I have read before. Ruby's story began ordinarily as it would in chick-lit but then as her past and flashbacks revealed hidden secrets, her story became more fascinating with every page hence I began to loose myself within her tale. Wanting to find out more about why she had lost her eyesight for so many years and the accident with her parents, I also then became curious as to the mystery man who supposedly saved her life and whom she regarded as her `guardian angel'. Vulnerable and alone, parentless and friendless Ruby then encounters two individuals who are the catalyst for change, in the form of secretive Sean who evades any questioning about himself and so remains a mystery and the hunky Eric who Ruby is fatally attracted to. As the plot becomes ever increasingly peculiar with so many twists and turns, you begin to seek out answers to the list of questions that continues to get longer with each chapter. Who is Sean and why does Ruby know so little about him? Is Eric safe or is he evil? What I did not expect at all was to find out the truth of the mystery, which was not about either characters but the main character of Ruby who completely shocks and surprises you.
Oh my goodness! The `twist' in the tale was one that I did not see coming hence I highly commend the author for her imagination, her creativity and her inspired idea that turned this book from what I perceived to be a fictional/ chick-lit tale into something fantastical. But who should one trust is the question that forever lingers, as both Sean's character and Eric are questionable as one minute you feel as if you know them and then the next you don't. I especially loved the quote "...the man who saved me and the man who made me need to be saved from myself". As I then take a break and think about what I knew about the character of Ruby before and then after the truth is revealed, you suddenly are aware of how all the subtle clues do then add up. Why she has a connection with other animals, her desire for another male in the form of Eric that is purely instinctive, her blindness and the blackouts that keep occurring and her ring. Rouge et blanc is an extremely rare, powerful and deadly being that even confuses PC Sean at first. A the assassins of the brotherhood plot to kill her and she places her trust in another, once more you find yourself gasping in disbelief as the one person whom you thought could be trusted turns out to be the deceiver. Trapped in a cage Ruby's true friend saves the day but at an alarming price, where questions once again arise as to trust issues when danger is afoot.
I have never felt so many emotions all at once whilst reading this book, from crying tears of pain to laughter, confusion and shock as I was astonished by how many times the truth of a person's character was revealed. When you just think that you know whom is honest and what is about to happen, then something else comes to pass that sends chills down your spine as you can almost feel the electric tension between the characters.
This story was about love and finding true love, loss, heartache as you search deep within the depths of your soul. Thought-provoking to the core, truth-drawing and utterly gripping I was sat in suspense throughout not knowing what was going to happen. I felt as a consequence so deflated when the ending left on a cliffhanger as I was so keen to find out the truth underneath all the secrecy, and yet it still did not happen but left you wondering instead. I do hope that there is a sequel to Caged as this is a remarkable, astonishing tale that really should continue, as I truly blown away by Amber Lynn Natusch's skill as a writer whose work is extraordinary. The detail on the characters lives goes into such depth that you are able to connect with them in such an intimate and personal way, as you understand Ruby's feelings and thoughts as her life is turned upside down. With a touch of `Twilight' by Stephanie Myer I was almost imagining the conflicting personalities between Sean and Eric to be like that of Edward Cullen and Jacob, although one being the werewolf and the other being the hunter. Clever and genius this incredible tale is so breathtaking, spellbinding and poignant that I found myself unable to put it down for even a minute. For those readers who love this genre then I cannot highly recommend it enough, and I concider myself to be so lucky as to have won this book through a blog giveaway as it certainly has exceeded and surpassed all expectations.
5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant,
