REVIEW: Caged by Amber Lynn Natusch (@AmberLNatusch)

“I stood in the middle of the room, unmoving – I barely breathed. My life had just become surreal, impossible, and one enormous lie. I needed to go, to run somewhere, anywhere to beat back the reality that was rapidly closing in around me. The image of him was burned into my retina, flashing over and over again like a warning. He was trapped somewhere between human and decidedly not, and I realized that was my new reality.

I was too.”

After the death of her parents, Ruby awakens from a lifetime of shadows and finds herself alone, thrust into a world of lies, deceit, betrayal and the supernatural.

As her quest for truth continues to come up short, she realizes that maybe some questions really are best left unanswered.

When her true identity is finally unveiled, she is forced to choose between two of the mysterious men who continually seem to crop up in her life.

She chooses poorly.

Now abandoned, Ruby must learn to call on the darkness within to survive, or spend a hellish eternity imprisoned because of it.

 

 

I don’t even know where to start this review.  I have so much that I want to say and I am pertified of giving away any storylines!  Caged could very possibly be one of the best Urban Fantasy novels I have ever read.  Coming from me, a die-hard lover of urban fantasy, that’s saying something!  I can honestly say with no hesitation that there isn’t a single thing I dislike about this book. 

 

From page one, I instantly fell in love with the main character, Ruby.  She’s independent, sassy, sarcastic and (much like myself) she has an uncontrollable (albeit totally justifiable) addiction to fabulous footwear.  She’s an artist and an all-American girl wrapped into one.  To top it off, Ruby lives in Portsmouth New Hampshire, the state where both the author and I live.  I heart Ruby.  She’s just fantastic. 

 

This book has a little bit of everything.  It is almost non-stop action from beginning to end and the parts that are not action filled are meaningful dialog that helps to build the story (instead of fluff to fill pages).  There is drama and intrigue.  There are many twists and turns.  There is mystery, danger and comedy.  There is anger and love.   And what story wouldn’t be complete without a few somewhat steamy scenes??  Caged has got them!  I don’t think that I could put a label on what type of story this is because the book covers so many different feelings and facets of life. 

 

Amber Lynn Natusch has a major hit with Caged.  She has developed an original storyline that will keep you burning through the pages.  I started reading this book a little over 24 hours ago and was finished this morning – that’s on top of working my normal day job.  She’s got a great cast of characters that will instantly win any audience over.  Caged is a complete and total hit in my eyes and I, for one, can not wait for the next in the series to be released! 

Overall, this is an amazing book.  Very well written.  Good characters.  Great storyline.  Caged gets 5 stars!!!
