Synopsis : In a world of love bonds, rituals, dark magic, ancient enemies and immortals, nothing is as it seems and no one can be trusted.
Seventeen-year-old Amber enters the paranormal world by chance when her brother, Dallas, sets her up with a summer job in Scotland. Dallas has spied something in the woods he thinks could make them rich beyond their wildest dreams. But instead of finding riches, Amber unknowingly enters a paranormal race—and promptly wins the first prize—a prize for which many would kill. Soon, she discovers her new boss, Aidan, didn’t employ her for her astounding housekeeping skills and he isn’t who he claims to be either.
As the dark forces slowly conspire against Amber, her naivety and love for Aidan catapults her into a calamitous series of otherworldly events. With every immortal creature hunting for her, whom can she trust with her life?
Review : I confess I don’t really know where to start. It’s a Young Adult book, but I’ve to say it wasn’t the feeling I had all along the book. Indeed, I was very surprised when I learned how old our heroine Calla was : seventeen-year-old. Maybe it’s just the case for me, but I thought she was older with her attitude and her nature. Indeed, it’s a young girl very different from the ones we find in this kinf of books. She is independent, mature, and she works in this first novel in a manor as a housekeeper (a job sooo not for her). It wasn’t inconvenient but I confess that I was a little trouble by that in the beginning. Otherwise I really like this character! Indeed, even in the worst situations she has a great sense of humor and we can only enjoy it, anyway I just love it! Calla is funny, thoughtful and independent, I really like her confidence and her open minded. However, I find it’s quite funny that she always agrees with her brother even when it’s really stupid.
