Enter a paranormal world of dark magic, rituals, love bonds and legends…

Fallen angel Cassandra wasn't supposed to fall in love with Dallas. It should've been just a bit of fun she couldn't resist. The bond they share could save her from her curse before she's forever bound to Hell. Trouble is, she's Lucifer's daughter and Dallas is mortal, and mortals don't survive in Cas...more

This must be the most original book I have read. It even made my heart stop at some point from shock. I only thought omg, omg, but heck! I wanted MORE of it. I just had to read the whole thing again. Beelzebub Girl is even better than the first book. Cassandra has a light and dark nature to her, be prepared that this book is sad and funny. Dramatic to read but so fricking addictive. I couldn't put it down. The writing is so captivating and every page left me clinging for more. The story is so di...more

I've read A Job From Hell and liked it (see my review), so naturally I picked up the second book in the series. This one started where the other stopped but from a different perspective. The story evolves around Cassandra and Dallas, so you don't necessarily have to have read the first book to find your way around easily.
When Lucifer's daughter, Cassandra, meets Dallas they're immediately drawn to one another through the ancient bond they share, one spun by fate. Cassandra's summoned by her fat...more

Beelzebub Girl, the second book in the Ancient Legends series, did not disappoint, but I recommend readers to read the first book so they know why things must be happening this way and not take a different direction. I could imagine otherwise things might be too confusing since there's a love story but not a predictable ending per se.

In this book, Cassandra finds out she has a bond with a human- Dallas, but this is not the problem. As Lucifer's daughter she has more to fight against, more enemi...more

Wow, where do I even begin with the series? It's my favourite. 5 stars is simply an understatement. Give it 10! In my opinion, J. Scott has outdone herself this time!
Beelzebub Girl is even better than A job from Hell and yet so completely different, maybe because we are now dealing with a dark angel- who has a different character than Amber, the main character in the first book, and yet she is so vulnerable and innocent in her own way if that's even possible. To understand her is not really our...more

After reading the first book in the series, I had high expectations for the second book which were fulfilled but in a different way than I expected. To know your way around this book, you need to have read the first one, A Job From Hell, otherwise I fear you won't know who everyone is. With the Shadows popping up halfway through and Aidan and Amber arriving in hell to tie in on the last book's ending, you're better off by pushing this one aside until you have read the first. This said, I thought...more

This wasn't your usual take on paranormal romance. It was a dark, gothic read with different paranormal elements such as reapers and fallen angels. I'm not one to sum up the plot because it's usually been done before, so I'll just focus on the various elements. This is certainly a well written, fast paced read, about 350 print pages long, with lots of action but also new paranormal elements. We have two vampires but they don't drink blood or avoid the sun, and we barely get to see them. The whol...more

This is a must Summer read!!!If you're new to Jayde Scott, then hang on for a heart pounding author who knows how to get the blood pumping. Looks like the little Amber "Clan" is here again in the second book of the Ancient Legends series and it was all interesting to see them all coming together again: Dallas, Cass, Amber, Aidan. Cass was already my favourite from the first book and she still is my favourite from all. She has the kind of personality I want to have.
Beelzebub Girl will leave you...more

Cassandra was my favourite character from the previous book and she didn't disappoint in this one. I enjoyed getting to know her a little better and finding out more about her life in hell, about Lucifer and the demon ranks. I didn't expect Dallas to be the one for her but after I got over the initial shock (I thought it'd be Kieran because they had so much spark), I really got into the plot which kept me guessing and the romance part was well-developed. It was intense, twisted and very original...more

The first book in this series was a quick read for me and I liked the characters and story line, so I figured I'd go ahead and read the second. This book took FOREVER to get going. There were a few things that were clever, but for the most part, this book was terrible. The huge lie that is fed to Dallas about his location is unbelievable and makes him look like a huge idiot for believing it. If he was 10, maybe, but as a male lead, it made him (and the book) look ridiculous. I also had issues wi...more

I received this book from Jayde Scott and I have to say that I loved this story. I really liked Cassandra’s character in the first book ‘A job from hell’ but I love her in this book even more.

On the outside Cass looks like your average teenage girl, she’s fun, quirky, hilarious, loves shopping and loves her job as a customer consultant, but what most people don’t know about her is that she is anything but average; not only is her mother an angel but her dad just happens to be Lucifer. Cass enjoy...more

I was really enthralled by this series and enjoyed it immensely. So would I recommend it: yes!!! Would I reread it: Yes, double yes!!!! The plot is fantastic, the writing beautiful, the characters very likable. I just love Cassandra. She can be a quite a bad bad bad girl, very naughty- but oh so sweet. I just love her and want to invite her to my morning brunch!!! Some people might take stars off for her behaviour. I don't because I realize that no two people are the same and what I find irresis...more

I almost peed myself laughing. The book was great. Lucifer's daughter shares a bond with a mortal. This bond is not just ordinary. It's a soulmate connection that is cursed and (hardly) blessed by the fates. Although I would have loved to read more romance between them, I also enjoyed Cassandra's attempts to break her curse and to run away from her family obligations. I found her father rather nice, a little overbearing, but still angelic.

All I can say is I wanna be like Cassandra when I grow u...more

LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!IT'S EVEN BETTER THAN THE FIRST BOOK.
Love the part where Cass- the devil's only daughter- works as customer representative.
Her way of dealing with with customers is so funny. Also I love love the conversation between Lucifer and his daughter:
"This is your job, Cassandra. Are you watching and learning?" he asked. Nodding, I curled my lips into a forced smile, grateful Dad couldn't read my thoughts ......

I had to laugh so much. It's almost like Robert De Niro giving the " I...more

TERROR-IFIC! This novel is even better than A job from Hell, the first book of the series. It really really had me hooked....
I love books with suspense, but usually can figure out the twist/killer/etc about 2/3 of the way through. I did not have that problem with this book. It had me hooked from the first chapter, all the way to the finish. This is by far one of the most thrilling series i have ever read, you are always guessing, when you think you have solved it, it just turns and make you thin...more

Ok so this book this is amazing. At first I was trying really hard to hate it since I’m a church goer and don’t feel very comfortable reading about Lucifer. But I finished it in one day on my ipad in college… and I must say I love this novel. It’s so much different than I expected. It’s wonderfully written and Cassandra is actually likeable. Correction. She is amazing. Having read this, I can't now imagine anyone not loving this book so don’t let the title scare you. I am so glad I didn’t judge...more

Even though Beelzebub Girl & the Ancient Legends Series is brimming with vampires, fallen angels, and demons, Jayde Scott continues to do a great job at creating and MAINTAINING an original story-line that will keep readers coming back again and again (as evidenced by the wonderful reviews being posted).

When I read A Job From Hell, I was intrigued by Cassandra's (Cass) character. Because of this interest, I was thrilled to find that Beelzebub Girl featured Cass. Like Melissa Marr's Wicked Lo...more

This is a very poorly written story. The errors are extremely distracting and the grammar is, at times, aweful. There are missing words repeated paragraphs and contradictions galore. The idea behind the story was okay,not great but tolerable, however, it was so poorly executed, it was difficult to finish the story. I wouldn't read this again. The swooning after knowing someone for all of two minutes annoyed me, the moving in together after an hour long conversation annoyed me, the "let's get mar...more

I wasn't a big fan of the first one but I had liked the character that is the main star in this book so I figured I'd give it a shot... bad mistake... this book is way worse than the first one... the story line is plain and really nothing intriguing at all... Cass does nothing but lie constantly to the man that's supposed to be the love of her life... which I guess is understandable since she's the daughter of Lucifer but since she doesn't want to be evil or stuck in hell you think she'd try to...more

Definitely worth the small price of $2.99. I bought all the books of the series and LOVED them. And in its own little way, it was a romance book but not an ordinary romance, but more a mystical romance where two people share a blessed and cursed bond given by the fates . I laughed, I cried, I feared, and worried and I was even in love with one character. I've bought many 10 dollar books lately that weren't half as good! There is plenty of suspense, romance and action! There are some afterlife re...more

I'm the writer so I'm probably biased :-) Either way, I love this book. Cass was my favourite character to write because she's quirky and someone you'd have a lot of fun with. She's also different, a bad girl who tries really hard to be good, and she stands out from the crowd. My second favourite character from the book is Patricia aka the Seer, who's bound to a haunted bakery. I'd love to dedicate a whole book to her one day.

I was excited to get my hands on this book! I had read book one and was hooked. I had met Cass and Dallas in `A Job From Hell' and LOVED their characters.

To the world, Cass is like any other teenage girl. She has lots of friends, loves to shop, and has a great job in customer service. But she hides a deep dark secret from the mortal world-she is half demon, half angel...and Lucifer's daughter. Rebelling against her father's wishes, she mingles with humans and blends in without anyone suspecting...more

I read the first book in this series and wanted to read more, plus the cover of this book really caught my attention. I’m so glad that I bought it because I absolutely love it. I loved Cassandra in the first series so couldn't wait to read this one. I love that she's the daughter of the Devil and her home is Hell. Wonderful. She has to break a curse in order to escape. It’s sort of a Star-Crossed lovers as she falls in love with a mortal. Cass is a cunning little fox and quite hilarious, though...more

Jayde Scott has woven a gripping story of Lucifer's daughter Cassandra, a fallen angel. Worthy to love and to be loved, one cannot help but wonder how she is going to be able to have a relationship with a mortal when a series of events try to tore the two apart. Never before was a love between an angel and a mortal so desired and yet vulnerable and hopeless. Not many authors can bind such strong and charming characters into a fast paced page turner. Wherever you are, I am sure you will find this...more

It was an amazing book, very much worth reading. I enjoyed all the twists and turns, it kept me on the edge of my seat, quickened my heartbeat, and made me look around and question my surroundings. I like it most because of the afterlife references and thoughts that will make you think about things that are not usually things we think about. My daughter introduced me to this author and I can say that she is an amazing writer.

Ugh I did not like this book as much as a Job from Hell. This book was in Cass' POV and about her and Dallas' bond, but seriously they meet again go on 1 date and decide to move in together it just moved to fast. Then there is Dallas who believes everything Cass tells him such as her dad runs Disneyland but really is Lucifer and so here Dallas is walking into Disney and all of a sudden they teleport to hell and are surrounded by dead trees and boulders, and Dallas sees a Volcano erupt yeah it is...more

Doomed is the second book in 'The Ancient legends' series by Jayde Scott. This book picks up a few weeks after the events of 'A Job from Hell' but the focus of this book is on Cassandra 'Cass' and Dallas (Amber's brother). Following a random phone call from a disgruntled customer to her place of work Cass is re united with Dallas and there is no mistaking what that 'spark' they had in book one has kindled into regardless of the time and space that had...more

Did you ever have a book that you first didn't want to read, but you started it nevertheless and you end up putting it on your top shelf and recommending it? This is the kind of book.

It's awesome. Really. It's awesome and
It was mindblowing, frickin fantastic.
And Dallas.

Don't get me started. He is hot. caring. funny. He plays the game well as I found out in book 3.
He really surprised me. What he has with Cass is special.

This book was horrible! I bought it thinking it would be awesome: It had 5 stars for God sakes! And I was so terribly disappointing! There were huge holes in the plot, the main character was such a liar i made me cringe, her boyfriend was completely stupid not to question anything, there was almost no romance, parts of the plot hardly connected back to each other..... I could probably keep going for a while, the book was really that bad. I implore you, DO NOT READ THIS BOOK! Despite being only 2...more

Jayde Scott is a consummate author who excels at characterisation and dialogue.
Having read 'A Job From Hell' I couldn't wait to read 'Beelzebub Girl'. Jayde Scott has outdone herself.
As always her characters are real and there is an undercurrent of the uncanny, the otherwowrldly sense of something you can't quite put your finger on. Have you ever experienced a slip tide you enjoyed? That is how this novel reads. I won't give the story away beacause it is a joy to see it unravelling but you have...more
