Publisher's Summary

He's waiting for you...

Under a blanket of snow, surrounded by dark woods and a frozen sea, lies an ogre's castle. There lives a little princess, trapped in the maze of her own mind.

On a battlefield where the past meets the present stands a fairy godmother and a pirate, an old ice cream man and a knight in shining clean armor...

The clock is ticking fast, and to pierce the ogre's secrets and defeat him, Island Chaptal will have to fight to remember...and stay alive.

Can the Lions and the Roomba cats be stopped before it's too late?

Good but not as good as the first three...

The best part of the book is at the end when revelations are made. Other than that, the plot was a bit slow and the trope used (amnesia) was a bit unnatural but overall a good read

Another terrific entry in the Spotless series!

I have been reading/listening to this series since book 1, Spotless, and I'm so glad that I discovered this series and Camilla Monk! If you are new to the series, you must start with Spotless and read the series sequentially or you will be completely lost. The opening of Butterfly in Amber was quite a surprise because it was darker than any of the previous books. I liked the change in tone but luckily as things unfold, we return to more of the humor and hijinx that we have grown accustomed to in previous books. This was definitely a satisfying conclusion to the ongoing storylines, and I was so glad to see that there is still more to come ("Apache Strike Force" is a very entertaining novella about March meeting Island's father, and then a fifth book is set for release later this year). Amy McFadden is a terrific narrator of this series -- I can't imagine anyone else voicing Island or March. I'm so glad that she's been able to give life to all of these stories, and I hope that she's on board for book 5! If you've been enjoying the Spotless series, I wholeheartedly recommend adding "Butterfly in Amber" to your book collection!

Great story but offensive

I actually really enjoyed this series.
What pisses me off though is that as a Romanian, I feel pretty tired of reading American fiction where random mentions of my country or Romanian people are always negative or demeaning.
Before shitting on an entire country, I feel that authors in general should do better research or just pick another country that you know more info about.

Yes--this is excellent and so funny--a must read


I came across Spotless series and so happy I did.

The main character is Island who started out as an IT engineer, top or her class, to be abducted by an assassin, to jump all over the world to help find the largest diamond ever and why her—well her mom stole it. Her mother had died years ago, and Island doesn’t really know much about anything, until her hazardous adventure begins.

• Book 1-Spotless, sets into story, characters and the adventure on its way. —Great Book
• Book 2-Beating Ruby, shows us that attraction between Island and March is developing, how life keeps getting in their way as they are in the middle of another adventure. —Great Book
• Book 3-Crystal Whisperer, is where the CSI, the Lions and others they trusted show are out to destroy Island and March, all because of Dries (Island’s biological father). Great action and story development. Greater Book
• Book 4-Butterfly in Amber, takes you places you never expected. I will only say excellent writing and a must read. Island will understand how much she is loved and to what ends her loved ones will go to for her. Ongoing action that you will not want to put down. I LOVE THIS BOOK—This book doesn’t miss any character, doesn’t miss any action, it has humor (so much humor), battles, love, emotional scenes—just it has everything!
• Novella—Apache Strike Force, is basically, March meets Island’s daddy. Very interesting and FUNNY! It’s so worth the money. From my understanding, there is only one more book for the series. For all of you how are interested there will be one more book in this series. “Island Chaptal and the Ancient Aliens’ Treasure”, coming out 12-12-2017. (found on Camilla Monk’s author page)


You need to read them all to get the full weight of the story—Excellent series Camilla Monk. I can’t your next book.

Amy McFadden does a great job. You are the voice of The Spotless series. —applause to you.

I love this Series!

This Series has captivated me I don't want it to end! The constant action was described it so vividly. The characters were endearing. The light romance was just perfect The main characters cameras inner dialogue was hilarious as was much of the other dialogue. The quirkiness gave balance to the serious emotions

something is missing - still great!

Is it the snappy dialogue, the exasperated sighs from March, or the brotherhood vicious that adds spice, but something is missing. I really wish March would take ignore Island when she begs him not to kill someone! Every time that happens, it comes back to bite March in the ass.

Even missing a few ingredients to make this a superb story, when all the players were in play, it was still entertaining and made my toes curl. There was LOTS of action and a few laughs. Island is still a virgin, which means a great comedy scene when penetration was near.

March is showing more of a sensitive side. That is a disappointment for me. In the first few books he was funny. Remember in the first book when he had her tied on the bed?
It was incredulous that No one in the previous story died. Everyone survived a boat sinking! Now people died and the brotherhood is no more. I am all for a happy ever after but Island and March must do the espionage thing for a great story.

Oh amnesia is a cop out.

UGH!!!!

I really enjoyed this series. Monk writes in a way that makes you feel you are there in the story seeing it all unfold. You feel the emotions, the frustrations, the jolts and car crashes. It is incredible!

Which is why I was so massively disappointed in Book 4. Don't get me wrong, the writing is still fantastic with lots of action, but the whole amnesia direction just took this book backwards. Island and March had progressed so much from Book 1-3. Isn't that what we look for in characters? Growth? But for literally the 1st 22 chapters of this book I was irritated and just had to force myself to listen. Island was just worse off character wise than she was in the 1st book. It was just so ....IRRITATING.

You can skip chapters 1-22 and not miss anything except frustration. I wish I had. The last 1/2 was of the book was classic.

However, Amy's reading is as phenomenal as ever.

Wow! Wow! Wow!

I struggled with the first quarter of this book because I needed Island to be ok. I needed more of those random jokes I grew accustomed to and the situation Island found herself in just wasn't funny at all. Just as I was getting antsy March reappears and the wild ride begins. What a book!

You know how some books claim to be Action & Adventure with a side of Romance? Well I've only ever found 2 books that can truly make that claim - this seried and Anita Clenney's Relic Seekers series.

For starters, it kinda kills the action momentum when the 'bad guys' are obliging enough to hold off on attacking so the H&h can get their rocks off. It also reduces my opinion of how clever and badass the lead characters are if they think they have time to squeeze in a little hanky panky between running for their lives. Needless to say the Spotless series does not suffer from this affliction.

The writing is sharp, I even learned a few words.
The descriptions put you in the midst of the action.
The random bursts of humour give your heart a chance to beat again before you have a heart attack.
The characters make you curious. None of them are all bad or all good and sometimes it's hard to decide if you like them or not or whose side they're on. They certainly leap off the page/earbud!

I am absolutely eager to see what else March & Island might get up to. Write on Ms Monk!
