An excellent ending to a superb series! Going to miss the shit out of Ruby Dee. FULL REVIEW COMING ON RELEASE DAY.
( Finally. The last book of any series is usually bittersweet to say the least, especially when it’s a series that was so well loved by me from the minute that I found it. I started this series because I loved the cover. I quickly fell in love with the characters, the premise, and of course the romance. I wanted to read this book, but I am really not happy to say goodbye to all the characters that have become so beloved to me. A copy of this book was given to me by the author, in ...more

Betrayed is, without a doubt, a flawless conclusion to The Caged Series. From Ruby's first sight of Sean's gorgeous green eyes in Caged, we ventured through an emotional and physical war with her. She has grown from a captivating and graceful being, though haphazard and left footed at times, to a driven and unmoving warrior. I adore her in all of her badassery and overwhelming love for others. Yes, that means you too, Scarlet. I knew you had a softer side, but we will keep that between us. We do ...more

I'm in awe of the finale in the Caged Series! This book was brilliant and had you on the edge of your seat. Alliances were made , hearts were broken and some devastating losses. But through everything things end exactly as they should be. Scarlett and Ruby were the perfect blend of character. Her pack was outstanding and Sean was her destiny. <3 No matter where her family ends up in some way they will.always be together. Another 5 star read by Amber Lynn Natusch. ...more

OMG! Definitely a roller coaster ride! Love it! Awesome ending. This is just so bittersweet for me though. I would surely miss Ruby, Scarlett, Sean and even Cooper. It's like saying good bye to my friends. Thank you to my fav author, Amber! Thanks for this awesome book! Love this series!

It’s been four years, almost to the day, since Caged, the first installment in the Caged series, was released, and Betrayed FINALLY gives us all the answers we’ve been waiting for. Plus, some answers to questions we didn’t even know we had.

This book brings the entire cast full circle with the series-long story arc. Unfortunately, not everyone can live happily ever after, so trust me when I give you this warning: BRING TISSUES. I actually didn’t sob as badly as I thought I was go

I have been anticipating this final book of the Caged series for a good long time, and for one reason or another have not been able to dive into it until now. I wasn't disappointed. While it took me just a little bit to get back into the characters and plot, once I was in the story progressed very quickly. What did surprise me was the lack of "adult situations" if you get my drift. I recall the other books in this series as being a bit more lascivious. But that doesn't mean there isn't romance. ...more

The end of a great series....

This was a great series to read and Ms. Natusch is one hell of a writer. I started reading her writing with a different series, but I looked for other books and found these. You won't be disappointed if you read them all, but you will wish that real life wouldn't interfere until you've reached the ending. This author is definitely going on my list of automatically read whatever she writes list.

Another breathtaking read by Amber Lynn Natusch! So sad to see the series end but wow what and end! This book, like all of her others, has a little bit of everything. I finished this book in one day, just couldn't put it down. If you like a supernatural read, grab this book along with the 8that came before it in the series and you won't be disappointed.

i absolutely LOVED this series!! i loved how it was different with the werewolves that Ruby and her werewolf was 2 separate beings. I loved how the ending was as well and how it told of what happened after the war and how her life was later on. i would definitely recommend to anyone who loves the supernatural world to give this series a read!!

Perfect ending

This whole series rocked. I loved how the author tied all the characters together. Watching Ruby/Scarlett character grow through the series was amazing. I did shed a few tears in the end. Loved all the characters.

Amazing Read

What a wonderful and spell binding book. And even greater series. I can't believe I'm done with it. But it is positively one that I will be ready again. It's definitely a must-read series.
Happy Reading

Paranormal intrigue

Do not read this book without reading the previous 8. This book is the conclusion of and I think fantasy story. And have plenty of kleenex handy.

This one was my favorite out of the whole entire series. I’m not ready for it to end though!!! I want more of Ruby and Sean and to know what happens with Lyla and Coop.

What is there to say? Goodbye….. no it’s just too hard, for me anyway. I have LOVED every second I’ve spent reading this series. I have to say that if you have not read the Caged series, what the hell are you waiting for?

Shall we begin?.......

So I honestly hesitated, I did really. I mean, who in their right mind wants to say goodbye to a series they truly LOVE? But guess what? It’s not goodbye, it never really is goodbye. Why? Because we have the ability to pick up any one of the 9 books that A

The Caged Series is well worth the read. And now that it is completed you will be able to enjoy the binge read rather than wait for each one. Major plus. I'm pretty sure I've rated them all 5 stars except this one.

Here is the thing. Part of me feels Natusch was so ready to end the series that this one lacked something essential to Ruby. Ruby repeated her self so many time and the conversations seemed repetitive in the extreme. There was a lot of stand around and explaining everything though I do
If you reading this and you haven’t read the any of the Caged Series yet, you should start now. Amber Lynn Natusch is a great story teller. Her characters are rich in personality. Every character has a unique voice and contributes in a way to the story that enhances it. They are not filler. ALN writing makes you laugh, and cry, even at the same time! The stories flow flawlessly.

Betrayed is the final book in the Caged Series by Amber Lynn Natusch. All books must be read in order to understand Be

An amazing and intense conclusion to a fantastic series. Once again we are thrust into the world of Ruby and Sean. Secrets are learned, love is tested and answers revealed. From the start, Betrayed is filed with action and suspense and you get sucked into the drama that unfolds. You will laugh, you will cry and you will wonder how you will ever move on. You will not be disappointed at all. Amber has cleverly woven an intricate and bittersweet tale that is wrapped up perfectly in the end; no ling ...more

I don't quite know where to start... I've loved this series for years – Caged helped kick-start my love of paranormal/urban fantasy. It has literally changed my life, as I have met so many wonderful people because I was introduced to this genre. I have read thousands of books over the past 4 years, and this series still stands as one of (if not) my favourites.

I love the story, the characters and the author. Although there has definitely been times over the course of the series, and especially du

I can only say Oh my Gosh , I refuse to give anything away because if you have read them, all this book will send you to places you never thought possible. With the love I feel for Ruby and her pack I was crying, at points and scared at others ,I think I felt every emotion possible reading this book, Betrayed . There are so many answers I was thrown off my chair. The PC and Ruby's pack all feel like family so I really felt as though I was there throughout .. If you have not read this se

I had to put the brakes on that emotional roller coaster ride. Up and down, left, right, loop after loop. Then BAM Amber rips your heart out and stuffs it back. I was in a public place when my heart was removed! Try holding back all emotions while surrounded by people. This is was a great way to end a series, that has taken many of us readers to an unbelievable world. Every character had a purpose, and with that, this story will always have a piece of my heart. I will forever be grateful to have ...more

Great ending

I am so glad there was a happily ever after for Ruby. I adore how Amber ended the series. However, some of the dialogue was very repetitious and phrases Ruby would use became annoying and used to frequent. Thankfully CF was only used once in this book. But I felt like some of the scenes were predictable because Ruby would consistently use the same phrases to describe something. Anyway...I read all nine books and the companion stories and I am thoroughly satisfied with the outcome. Th

I love this series, I've been a huge fan since Caged (book1) and have been devouring the series ever since. Amber Lynn Natusch has a way of writing that captures you and sucks you in completely, captivating you, until the very last word on the very last page. Betrayed was such a bittersweet read. You are excited to learn more about the characters you have grown to love, and yet not ready to read their final chapter. I loved every second of reading this series, I highly recommend it to everyone!
