Dead and Beyond by Jayde Scott - Review and Giveaway

Reading Addiction Blog Tours

Welcome to Reading It All's stop on the Jayde Scott book tour brought to you by Reading Addiction Blog Tours. 

Title: Dead and Beyond
Author: Jayde Scott
Series: Ancient Legends Book 4
Release Date: February 22nd, 2012

Synopsis: Everyone keeps a dark secret. That's what Amber Reed realizes when her boyfriend Aidan turns her into a vampire against her will. When something goes terribly wrong and her friend disappears, the clock is ticking, the walls are closing in on Amber, and the stakes are getting higher as she finds herself the pawn in an ancient war between three powerful races fighting for supremacy.

Amber is about to find out who Aidan really is...and the secret is nothing she ever imagined.

My thoughts: First off, that cover is just amazing! Second, I have never read any of Jayde Scott's books. I really wonder why. I can't believe that they have stayed off my radar this long. Now I have to go back and read the entire Ancient Legends series. 

Dead and Beyond was so amazing, and it was a fun read. The characters were very interesting. Amber is well written. She may be a vampire but she still has the same worries of any girl. I liked that about her. She was trying to learn her new abilities and struggling a lot with her necromancer gift. As she began to step out on her own she really started to grow as a character. 

There were several other characters that really caught my attention. Cass seems really entertaining. She's a straight to the point character and I love how she was in this book. Aidan seemed like a good guy, a little over protective but that's completely forgivable. I liked the parts with Devon. Like I said, I haven't read the previous books, but he seemed to really care about Amber a lot.

The plot in this book was so fun. Missing people, transporting through the different realms, and the love story between Amber and Aidan meant this was a fast paced book. I loved how Amber and Aidan's relationship grew in this book. I can't wait for the next book from Jayde Scott, and I will be going back to read the beginning of this series.
