Publisher's Summary

The door to the massive New York Times best-selling House of Night series has closed. Now Kristin Cast kicks down a new door to welcome her millions of fans to her latest sizzling series.

There is a world that runs parallel to our own, a world in which the souls of the damned are caged, where they are looked over by the furies, and where they spend eternity in torment, mirroring the devastation and mayhem they created when alive.

Someone has opened the cage.

The worst of terrors have crossed the barrier that separates our world from theirs, and the furies send a great, albeit untested, warrior - their only son, Alek - to bring those souls back. He is young and handsome, headstrong and impulsive, and he won't be able to do it alone.

Eva has grown up beautiful and beloved but surrounded by secrets. First she will be hunted in an ancient feud that will threaten her life. Then she will become the hunter.

With the police closing in and two worlds on the verge of crumbling around them, Alek and Eva must find each other, discover the limits of their powers, and work together to save everything they hold dear, including one another. Blending elements of mythology with the dazzling storytelling that her fans have devoured in the House of Night series, Kristin Cast weaves a spellbinding and passionate tale that starts a thrilling new series with an explosive charge.

Fantastic!!

Would you listen to Amber Smoke again? Why?

I am gonna give it another listen closer to Book 2's release date.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Alek and his obliviousness of the mortal realm was awesome.

Which character – as performed by Caitlin Davies – was your favorite?

I think Bridget was done best. It definitely reminded me of Aphrodite in HoN but I did not consider that a bad thing.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It kept me so engaged that I finished it quickly. There was some suspense, mystery, and a smidge of romance.

Disappointed

The reviews for this book made it seem like it would be great, but it was highly disappointing. I can't stand Eva and her story. Hopefully I can get a refund.

Slow to start, but I'm in love!

The narrator was excellent even though she scared me at first with the prologue with her almost robotic voice. She gets better!

The story was slow at first but definitely picked up and now I can't wait to read to second one! Fans of House of Night should pick this one up for sure!

No thank you

This book was hard to listen to. It just took too long to get to the point and the characters weren't go getters. They were just not that interesting to me.

I will say that I fast forwarded and skipped 60% of the book. Something awesome may have happened but I'll never know, and I'm fine with that, lol.
