Lost in the woods one night, Amber enters Aidan's deadly world by chance when she unknowingly participates in a paranormal race, and promptly wins the first prize - a prize worth killing for.
In a world of forbidden love, of ancient enemies, legends and rituals, nothing is as it seems and no one can be trusted.
Amber's life will never be the same again, unless she searches the Otherworld to retrieve what everyone wants. But to do so, Amber must die.
A JOB FROM HELL is the stunning first book in the paranormal series, Ancient Legends.
"Great way to impress your future brother-in-law, by the way," Kieran continued. "You look like you took a blood bath. The only thing missing is the axe. Would Dallas really let his little sister date a crazed murderer who hacks bodies in the basement? You need to change that shirt pronto. And oh, you're welcome. I just saved you from making a complete and utter fool of yourself, but don't mention it."
I curled my lips into a fake smile. "Thanks. It's so nice to know you've got my back."
Kieran regarded me coolly. "A hobby might help ease all that hunger. Have you ever considered fixing cars, or woodworking, or maybe a DIY project around the house?"
"You're getting a big laugh out of this, aren't you?"
Kieran shrugged. "There's nothing on TV."
06/06 Lenore Wolfe gave 5 stars to: A Job From Hell (Ancient Legends, #1) by Jayde Scott
status: Read in June, 2011
An amazing read, I was held in suspense by Jayde Scott's novel, A Job From Hell, from the first page until the last.
Set in Scotland, modern day, A Job From hell is about a young woman whose brother helps her to get a job as a housekeeper to fund her way through college, but from the time she steps out of the cab to face the old mansion, you are trying not to chew your nails wondering what will happen next. She is thrown into one suspense filled situation after another, and from the moment she learns who her employer really is, until you turn the last page, this page-turning novel is impossible to put down.
I loved reading A job From Hell. I am adding Jayde Scott to my list of favorite authors, and I look forward to catching up on her past novels as much as I am looking forward to her future work.
I highly recommend, A Job from Hell, and I easily give it 5 stars.
