Another great writing by Jayde Scott.
Although I’m not into Vampire thrillers, I am hooked on Jayde Scott’s Ancient Legends series.
Amber Reed, a human turned Vampire, has a sudden craving for blood that she can’t comprehend. To add to her misery, she suspects her soul-mate, Aidan is cheating on her, which of course isn’t the case, and her good friend disappears.
Overall, it’s a great mystery with its twists and turns.

What a fantastic story. If you're into Vampire thrillers with a touch of steamy romance, this book is for you. Amber Reed, a so-called psychic with the ability to communicate with dead humans as well as supernatural beings, is highly sought after in the paranormal world. When her best friend called Angel disappears, a Shadow turns up at Amber's door, asking for help to solve the mystery.
Amber's confused because she's a newly turned vampire, plagued by visions she doesn’t understand and burdened with an uncontrollable craving for blood. Plus she’s worried that her boyfriend, Aidan, is not what he appears to be. To figure out what’s going on, she turns to her boyfriend’s archenemy, Devon, hoping he can help her to understand what’s happening to her mind and body.
To add more confusion, Amber’s home seems to be haunted by something evil, but as she tries to escape the insanity of it all, she’s lured in by Devon’s charm. Though she tries to resists his flirtations, it proves harder than anticipated. Amber’s heart sinks with despair when she finds proof that her boyfriend, Aidan, has indeed kept a terrible secret from her, one that could risk her life as well as their relationship and future together. Now, she wonders if there is still a future with her soul mate, after all, it now seems that she’s the root of all their problems.
A well written book filled with mystery, suspense and steamy romance. Though Amber's strong, she’s also a bit of a klutz, which is a hilarious combination and I found her quite endearing. The twists and turns kept coming and had me on the edge of my seat. A great read and I highly recommend it.
