After the death of her parents, Ruby awakens from a lifetime of shadows and finds herself alone, thrust into a world of lies, deceit, betrayal and the supernatural. As her quest for truth continues to come up short, she realizes that maybe some questions really are best left unanswered. When her true identity is finally unveiled, she is forced to choose between two of the mysterious men who continually seem to crop up in her life.She chooses poorly. Now abandoned, Ruby must learn to call on the darkness within to survive, or spend a hellish eternity imprisoned because of it.

Critic Reviews

" Caged is very much plot driven and when paired with Ruby's outstanding voice this story quickly becomes next to impossible to put down. Natusch's descriptions are spellbinding without putting even the smallest damper on the endless action. It might be an indie publication but rest assured, you're in for a wild ride. With a riveting narrative and a story line that just doesn't quit; this book is a must read for any and all paranormal fiction junkies." ( Carmel)
" Caged could very possibly be one of the best Urban Fantasy novels I have ever read." (Jena Gregoire)
"I'll admit that Caged sucked me in, and I bought Haunted the minute I finished it." (Connie Suttle, best-selling author of the Blood Destiny series)

Perseverance mostly pays off

The book started off slow with too much detail about day to day activities that had no later importance. This was quite frustrating and I did almost chuck it in but then I do have a low tolerance level so I persevered and found myself sucked into the story. Things improved thereon except when Ruby's naïveté or defensiveness tried my suspension of disbelief. The pace of the story and mystery of her past and who she is piqued my curiosity enough to want to listen more.

Entertaining and enjoyable book

Well written and excellently performed. An enjoyable listen. I like that the author didn't feel the need to add excessive sex and gore in order to write a good story. The story description isn't quite adequate. I was a bit surprised when Ruby learned her true identity. Didn't see that coming! I look forward to the next book in the series.

Interesting

Interesting storyline but threadbare character motivations. I enjoyed the authors perspective on ware wolves enough that I will try the next book.

Mixed feeling.

I definitely enjoyed the book and plan to read the rest of them. My only problem with the book which has been tackled by other reviewers is the fact that the main character does tend to whine and it and it gets frustrating when her temper tantrum hinders the unveiling of the story. Other than that, I enjoyed the characters very much. The story moved along at a reasonable pace and didn't really leave me unanswered questions which I liked. the dialogue was very quippy and Joss Whedon like at times. Honestly I can't wait to read the next one.

Enjoyable

What does Tavia Gilbert bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I love tavia! I enjoyed Ruby's witty & sarcastic humor, and Tavia's was on point!

Any additional comments?

Anxiously anticipating how this series develops.

Amazing!!!

Would you consider the audio edition of Caged to be better than the print version?

Read and loved the print version of Caged but the audio was like reading it again for the first time!! Absolutely loved it!

What did you like best about this story?

Amber Lynn Natusch had taken a stale genre and created something new and intriguing.

What does Tavia Gilbert bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Tavia Gilbert is one of my favorite narrators because she can convey true emotion and she has a great range with all of the characters. She brings them to life.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There were a few moments that moved me and there were a few moments that were laugh out loud funny; however I do not wish to introduce any spoilers here.

Any additional comments?

Listening to audio books is my new addiction; although I prefer to listen to books I have already read; characters that I already know and enjoy have a voice and it is amazing.

Disappointing

Purchased this title by accident but thought I would give it a try. Very unlikable main character, disappointing, and predictable storyline.

Better than expected!

I wasn't sure at first since it started off a bit slow, but then it picked up and became riveting!

Decent book, but felt a bit off

This book was a bit difficult to get through. It was slow and felt off. It's an interesting story line but it had feeling of just being a bit off - like the author didn't think too much of how different situations would affect the main character, ruby, and her responses to those situations were non existent where they should have been full of emotion. Where her trust of men should have been shattered, it was like nothing of great importance happened. I enjoyed other works from the author so it was disheartening that this was not as good as I expected. I would be interested to know where the story goes, but only if there is some hope that Ruby will grow as a character.

I love Tavia Gilbert as a narrator. It took a minute to get my head into this book with her since she narrated one of my favourite series (by Jeannine frost), and it kept reminding me of the other books (I kept expecting to hear a sexy British accent) - but after a chapter or two I was right into This book.
