“I loathed myself for wishing a death of that nature on anyone, and even more so because I still wanted it to happen. My moral fiber was unraveling quickly, and I wondered how long my humanity could withstand the unending trial of values my life had become. With every choice I made, I felt it slipping

I just... wow... holy shit. The author can't honestly expect me to just wait until next year to find out what happened!!! I just had my mind blown! This book was an emotional roller-coaster!

Is it March of 2013 yet?!?!?!


Seriously, I've just been staring at the computer screen for the past 15 minutes. I'm still trying to process that ending, while trying not to meltdown. Self-published books sometimes make me super nervous when I pick them up, I've had more than a few flops before. Not t

why did you do this to me ?

This series has some amazing covers. Yes, I judge a book by its cover sometimes. Sue me.
This one is one of the best. Covers, I mean.
I did not finish this book. I got to 72% and just stopped. I couldn't take it anymore. There are some things that I just can't get over and don't want to forgive.
The first half of the book was good. More than good. The best so far. Ruby and Sean finally get over their shit and start being together, Ruby finally stops being an emotional

I took my time.. I savored every page of it. I felt sad for some of the characters, I felt joy for others. I felt moved!
Throughout the book, as I had to stop for one reason or another, I thought about it.. I wondered about it.. I couldn't get it out of my head and I forced myself to finish my tasks quickly in order to get back to it. By the time I flipped to the last chapter I was so tense I didn't realize I was sitting in the same crooked position until the very last word.. caused a kink on my

I cannot believe I almost didn't read the second book in this series...then I HAD to have the third book AND the fourth book....and now I have to wait for the NEXT book which won't be out until next year....

With the rapid fire release of Caged, Haunted and Framed (books 1-3 in the Caged series), it feels like the release of Scarred has been a long time coming. I spent the better part of the last few months bugging the crap out of the author for any little tidbit I could get (ARC, Cover Reveal, etc). Then I finally got to read it….

And then I had to keep my damned mouth shut about it!! UGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, not anymore! I am happy to announce that Scarred is officially out!

Ohhhh. I can't get enough of Ruby and her friends. What an excellent story. I flew through these 4 in just weeks. Couldn't stop. I have the song Gravity on repeat in my head. How can I wait til feb/march to see what happens next? Ugh. You. Are. Mine!!!!!

Later review:
Oh my. I LOVED this series. So much about it. The characters are so real and unreal at the same time. I identified with the main character and her dancing. I loved her life style with her live/work apartment and dance studio. I bec

Each book in this series got progressively better...but this one took the cake. Didnt know whether to love the author for ending it the way she did, leaving me with such a wild and burning antisipation for the next in the series or to hate her for it. Scarred by far was the best in the series and didnt leave you wanton for anything ..until the end that is! I highly recommend this the author and her ability to visually hypnotize you and capture your imagination. Definetly do not pas ...more

Amazing book series, and where others sometimes disappoint or drag on, this one has yet to do that! I originally would of never picked up this book series had I known exactly what type of supernatural creature it was about, I avoided those types of books. But I'm so glad I didn't know until I was way into the book, because it is one of my top 5 favorite book series of all time! CAN NOT WAIT UNTIL THE NEXT BOOK!

Wow! This was intense with so many twists that I literally couldn't put it down! There were times that I loved what was happening with the relationships and times that I hated what was happening. The ending left me breathless and dying for more. The writing has improved significantly since the first book too.
Amber never fails to squeeze every emotion possible out of us with her Caged series. Wonderful book as always.The ending was crazy and it will be hard to wait until possibly March of 2013 for the next book. Great job Amber!If you haven't read the first 3 books-Caged,Haunted and Framed-you really should-really worth it.

Loved it!. The choices that poor Ruby has to make, has made. She is one tough cookie and very determined. I can't wait to see what happens next- geez, talk about a cliffhanger! Looking forward to the next book!

I started reading this series because of the relationship that was building between Ruby and Sean. By book 4 I was totally disappointed on where the author has taken the relationship between the two characters. Not sure if I will read book 5.

Another awesome installment, ending leaves you so in anticipating the next book that you cannot hardly wait. The whole situation with it going out like it did, is just brutal.

4 books in 3 days I'm definitely enjoying this series way more than I expected after finishing book one which was so so, had potencial but lacked.
Now that I've finished book 4 I'm giving it a 4.5 almost 5 I think. The pace of this series is addictive and compulsive. I can't put the book down until I've finished and the way this one did I need to read the next one fast.
Definitely the story telling has improved and some info lacking in the previous books and the annoying personality of Ruby is ge

Fast paced and action packed

This book was definitely fast-paced and action-packed. I definitely was not expecting half of what happened. The ending totally blew my mind and I hope it doesn't stay true. Poor Ruby, she just can't catch a break. Everything seems to be going right and then does a complete 180. Definitely worth reading.

Paranormal intrigue

I finally decided this series is intrigue. The tension really amps up in this story. There is a cliffhanger of an ending making me want the next book now.
