Summary

The door to the massive New York Times best-selling House of Night series has closed. Now Kristin Cast kicks down a new door to welcome her millions of fans to her latest sizzling series.

There is a world that runs parallel to our own, a world in which the souls of the damned are caged, where they are looked over by the furies, and where they spend eternity in torment, mirroring the devastation and mayhem they created when alive.

Someone has opened the cage.

The worst of terrors have crossed the barrier that separates our world from theirs, and the furies send a great, albeit untested, warrior - their only son, Alek - to bring those souls back. He is young and handsome, headstrong and impulsive, and he won't be able to do it alone.

Eva has grown up beautiful and beloved but surrounded by secrets. First she will be hunted in an ancient feud that will threaten her life. Then she will become the hunter.

With the police closing in and two worlds on the verge of crumbling around them, Alek and Eva must find each other, discover the limits of their powers, and work together to save everything they hold dear, including one another. Blending elements of mythology with the dazzling storytelling that her fans have devoured in the House of Night series, Kristin Cast weaves a spellbinding and passionate tale that starts a thrilling new series with an explosive charge.

Fantastic!!

Would you listen to Amber Smoke again? Why?

I am gonna give it another listen closer to Book 2's release date.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Alek and his obliviousness of the mortal realm was awesome.

Which character – as performed by Caitlin Davies – was your favorite?

I think Bridget was done best. It definitely reminded me of Aphrodite in HoN but I did not consider that a bad thing.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It kept me so engaged that I finished it quickly. There was some suspense, mystery, and a smidge of romance.

Beautiful, Magical and Twisted!

Caitlin Davies never ceases to bring her A game! I absolutely love her voice and performance. And unlike her previous books with P.C. Cast, Kristin has managed to make a magical romance novel terrifying as well. I absolutely love her more macabre style. It's not all rainbows and sunshine. And what an amazing ending, leaving me wanting to know more! This book draws you into a new world that is familiar at the same time! I can't wait for more!

Takes a little longer to get into.

Was not quite as entertaining as "House of Night" but still good to listen to.

The Escaped Series: The Start of Worlds Colliding

I'm a huge fan of the Cast family. I decided to listen to Kristin Cast "The Escaped Series" while I wait till I have credits to start House of Night Series audiobooks. I've read House of Night till the Hidden entry of the series. Comparing HON to Amber Smoke is a 180. Definitely lil more vulgar but still senses an essence K. Cast style. It took two chapters for me to get hooked on this book. I can't wait to start book 2 of "The Escaped Series". A Greek mythology fantasy that I just adore and can't wait for book number 3. I'm currently listening to Scarlett Rain now.
