Bewitched by Jayde Scott

Amber Reed is a dead girl walking.

Having just been turned by her gorgeous vampire boyfriend, eighteen-year-old Amber Reed is bestowed with the ability to see ghosts. Between trying to figure out how to control her bloodlust and solving the mysterious disappearance of a friend, Amber realizes someone wants to step into her shoes so badly, they’ll do anything to take her place.

When one secret after another pops up, the only person who believes her is her enemy, Devon. Amber can’t figure out if he’s here to help or save his own immortal race from losing the ancient war against the vampires. What she does know, however, is that she can’t resist his good looks just as much as she can’t help becoming someone else…

In a world of dark magic and ancient enemies, three powerful courts fight for supremacy, and Amber might just be the pawn in winning this war forever. But how’s a girl to survive when everyone wants her dead?

See review at bottom:

When the kids went to bed, I stayed up until the wee hours of the morning reading this book. It made me cry, smile, giggle, and jump right out of my seat with the haunting and the bloodlust. I read it in about a week. The witty dialog and unique storyline held me mesmerized from the first page to the last. We are taken step-by-step into a paranormal world filled with ancient secrets and prophecies. The intriguing plot kept me guessing until the very end.

Amber settles into her new life as a vampire with her boyfriend, Aiden at her side. They've acquired an ancient spell that allows them to walk in the sunlight and most importantly...not need to feed on blood. But as much as Amber wishes she could live happily ever after, it's just not in the cards for her. Her life becomes a whirlwind, danger is everywhere, secrets are spilled, and the twists and turns will keep you turning the pages. And you won't believe the surprises in this book! They are some real shockers for this series! All I can say is "WOW!"

One of my most favorite things about the series is the characters: Flawed, yet, deeply human, likeable characters that you will fall in love with. They're crafted so brilliantly. And I feel like they're my best friends, and that I am right there with them experiencing their journey.

Jayde Scott does such an amazing job with this series. I can't wait to delve into more by this amazing author!! I'll be keeping my eye out for the next book in the Ancient Legend saga. What else can I say? I am hooked!
