Wow, a cliff-hanger, that's rare in this series! I know from the Feature & Follow post this week that many actually hated cliff-hangers, but I actually really liked them ;) I don't mind waiting, but if the book comes out 2 years later than the previous book, I would be really pissed. I guess it all depends on how the cliff-hanger was set up and how long 'til the next of the series was out. In Forever and Beyond's case, I love the clif

I have been a fan of this series since A Job from Hell and I have no idea how Jayde Scott is able to come up with such a gripping story with each book! Seriously, this was book 5 and I am still enthralled with this story. I was lucky enough to receive a copy from the author and couldn't put it down. Forever and Beyond is in our lovely Amber's point of view again. I really love these characters. Amber is probably my favorite. She has been through a lot recently. She is dealing with being a vampir ...more

Book Review- Forever and Beyond by Jayde Scott

Amber and Aidan are now in Morganefaire meeting with the council trying to decide what the next step is. As they try to reason it out young women are being found dead. Amber starts her own investigation into what is going on. She now has a ghost named Julie to think about. Julie was the first girl found murdered and left behind by a reaper. Amber is shocked by that fact and knows something isn’t right.
The vampires are outsiders and the witches don’t

This was my favorite so far in the series, and now I am bummed that I have to wait to read the next one until October! Amber is getting more into her necromancer skills in this series, as she works directly with a ghost who died but does not know how or who killed her. Amber and Aidan's relationship continues, and it is better in this book because they aren't each trying to hide things from each other. That was pretty frustrating in the last book. The only thing I didn't like about this book was ...more

Amber, the main character in this book, is a necromancer and a vampire, who thinks in such an amusing, self-deprecating and cynical manner that I had to laugh out loud and often. She is not the usual heroine you imagine: she is far from perfect. She is strong and in this book I could connect with her.
Although this book was very funny, what I admired most was the author’s ability to entrance the reader. There is non stop action from beginning to end. If there is something I can say about this ser

I loved Dead and Beyond, so I was more than eager to jump into the sequel-and believe me, it did not disppoint. It was every bit as good as the last one and within 2 chapters I was hooked. I love the way the author develops her characters-makes them grow and makes them learn from mistakes. Noone in her book is perfect and yet she makes them so strong, likeable, unpredictable, and distinct that it's not easy to forget them. Whenever I've finished a book in this series, I already miss them. Beside ...more

Rating: 3.5 Stars

First of all I have to say I absolutely adore Jayde Scott and all of the other stories in this series. However, this book left me a little disappointed and wanting a little more. I really felt like there was more story to tell, and the ending seemed abrupt, and completely took me off guard.

I enjoyed the story but felt like there were a lot of unresolved storylines from the last book and would've liked to have seen how Aiden and Amber resolved all of the things that happened in

This is it. THE perfect curl up book you want to read under a blanket no matter if it's raining, the sun's shining, or if it's night outside. What captivated me most about Forever and Beyond was the plot: the relationship between Amber and Aidan and the relationship between Kieran and Patricia, the spirit that is lost but wants so dearly help, the deaths of witches and accusations and the mystery about the witches town. This book was a delicious read. Sometimes I laughed and sometimes a chill we ...more

I absolutely loved the Ancient Legends books. In less than one week, I've read all 5 books. Right from the start each book is engaging. The story builds dramatically and the characters are varied and intriguing. But what I love most about this series is that you can read each book in the series on its own. There is always something in each book that is appealing. I find some characters (Kieran, Amber and Julie) incredibly hilarious. Even if they are just work of fiction with some paranormal, rom ...more

I had no idea what the book was going to be about. But i heard that so many people loved the ancient legends series so it must be good. I am always cautious when i read books because you just never know. But Dead and Beyond and Forever and Beyond are probably one of my favorite books ever. The characters are really likeable and its easy to just feel what they are feeling. I loved the concept of a mortal becoming a vampire then getting the choice to become human again. All this for a very reasona ...more

Although I have thoroughly enjoyed this series of books, especially Aidan and Amber, I must say this one part of the series wasn't quite enough for me, personally.
I was expecting a little more to the plot, maybe a little more adventure or at least a new development to Aidan and Amber's relationship, or maybe Kirean's character being developed or more focused upon.
However, despite my slight disappoint I did enjoy this chapter in the series and look forward to the following book.

A refreshing story filled with vibrant characters, feisty humor, and an irresistible romance that left me swooning for more. The premise is not something I usually will dig my teeth into but I found myself getting excited and blitzed through this book in a matter of hours...And that ending, it doesn't exactly help me to quit smoking as I am waiting for the next book in anticipation.

I think I read this book in 2 days! It was easy to get lost in her story and when it was over, I started from page one again just to get a different point of view knowing the story. It was nice to see her being strong but also see her weak. It made her more real to me. I can't wait to start the next book

I loved this book. however I wish the author would have concentrated more on the plot rather than the mushy stuff. as I said in my last review on this series, I love the mushy but sometimes it takes away from the book and puts me in the mind of a romance novel. not exactly what I was hoping to read with a vampire book.

It's difficult to express how I feel about Forever and Beyond in a typed review when it evokes so many emotions. In my head and with my hands, I can, but it's hard to write and put together on a keyboard. I would say I loved everything about it but even when I write this, it's still a vast understatement.

What a great follow first i was swooning.. the chemistry between Aidan and Amber is amazing. And Kieran is super chapter 10 i was totally absorbed, unable to stop and had to laugh a couple of times at some scenes.. by chapter 17 was totally freaked out and kept checking my surrounding... all in good ways and by the end, I just wanted more.

When you say Jayde Scott the words that come to my mind are spine tingling read, sarcastic strong characters, hilarious situations & value for money. Thankfully the author doesn’t disappoint me even this time.

I've been dying to read this book for forever. Well, now I finally have and I am hooked! Insightful and addictive I am truly convinced that Scott is the master of scintillating and epic storytelling and plots that I am always incapable of putting one of her books down!

My favorite Ancient Legends book so far. The ancient war background was very interesting and I can't wait to see which court wins. What I love about this series is that the books are funny but not mindless romance reads. There's actually an actual backstory and a world full of drama and intrigue.
Dec 27, 2012 Charles rated it it was amazing
I really enjoyed this book. It was packed with adventure and has one hell of a cliffhanger ending! The only sad part is that so many of the great characters from the previous books are not in this one. Perhaps we will see them in the next.

My fav new author! :) I bought Dead & Beyond and Forever & Beyond on a whim, and I am so glad I did!I loved Amber but I also loved Julie even if I am not really into paranormal stories. It took me a chapter or so to really dig into the book, but it sure does pick up after that!

I decided to purchase this. So very glad that I did! I had so many laugh out loud moments and moments where I just skipped work that my family was starting to question whether I was crazy or what? I literally found myself wanting to read it again when I was finished.
Jan 15, 2014 Judi rated it it was ok
Although I loved the previous books I feel like the author just stopped this one at the halfway point and closed up shop. Very few questions were answered and, after reading the preview of the next book they won't be answered anytime soon.

Even though I love Jayde Scott's books and the Ancient Legends series, this book left me so confused. I don't get the majority of the information that we're being fed and just can't figure out how it relates to the original storyline. I get the feeling that I missed a book.
Oct 03, 2012 Liz rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
Beyond and Forever was thrillingly engaging, romantic, action-packed, seductive, tempting, funny, and had me on the edge of my seat. And begging for more once the novel ended. It was perfect- it wasn't too short, it wasn't too long. I loved the first 3 books, but this one was so much better.
