i'm back again for another edition of Book Review thursday. This week? Bewitched by Jayde Scott. If you haven't read my past blogs i have reviews of the first three ancient legends books that come before this book.
Back to Bewitched. This one is told by Amber again. The vampire slash necromancer. The story dragged a little having Amber attend Cass's 18th birthday and become possessed with insatiable blood hunger, which she shouldn't have. After returning to Scotland with Aiden, her mate, she has a vision of Angel, her mortal friend she met when she was kidnapped by the Shadows. Simultaneously Aiden is called back to the Lore Court to help Layla maintain her rule.
After some questioning teleporting by Aiden, Amber starts to get suspicious about his whereabouts. Uncharacteristic thoughts about trusting Aiden enter her mind and even more uncharacteristic romantic thoughts about Devon the shadow Amber decided to confide in about everything she learned about Angel's disappearance and her odd bloodlust. All these issues surrounding Layla seem to mesh with Angel's appearance and worst yet a prophecy is being fulfilled and the war between the lore court, shadows, and vampires is about to begin.
I greatly enjoyed Jayde Scott's other books in this series. This was as usual funny and witty. Amber is entertaining but there wasn't much to this plot. It was mostly Amber asking a million questions, her seeing some other paranormals (ghosts, werewolves) and a lot of running from scary things. They way it ended however leaves me expecting a lot from the next book. When looking back at the previous books. I know i won't be disappointed.
Overall this book gets a 3 but i know it will get better.
