Indie Review Friday #5

Another week, another indie book review Friday for you!

The Novel:
A Job From Hell. A Job From Hell is a paranormal romance written by Jayde Scott (I know, she has one of the coolest names ever, right?!)

Goodreads Description:
In a world of love bonds, rituals, dark magic, ancient enemies and immortals, nothing is as it seems and no one can be trusted.

Seventeen-year-old Amber enters the paranormal world by chance when her brother, Dallas, sets her up with a summer job in Scotland. Dallas has spied something in the woods he thinks could make them rich beyond their wildest dreams. But instead of finding riches, Amber unknowingly enters a paranormal race—and promptly wins the first prize—a prize for which many would kill. Soon, she discovers her new boss, Aidan, didn’t employ her for her astounding housekeeping skills and he isn't who he claims to be either.

As the dark forces slowly conspire against Amber, her naivety and love for Aidan catapults her into a calamitous series of otherworldly events. With every immortal creature hunting for her, whom can she trust with her life?

A JOB FROM HELL is the first book in the paranormal romance series, Ancient Legends. Book Two, Beelzebub Girl, will be out in June 2011.

A Job From Hell was another quick read for me. Jayde did a great job of giving her readers well rounded characters and a plot that was fast paced, but easy to follow. My biggest worry for this series is just how saturated the PNR market has become, I would hate to see this jewel get buried and lost in PNR purgatory. (I'm saying you should read it and tell your friends lol)

There is a big, open world here, filled with vampires, demons, dangerous shadows and much more. Of course, it wouldn't be paranormal ROMANCE if there wasn't a love story. Our protagonist deals with love and lust and relationship issues all throughout the book, and it blends well into the story and helps keep the reading moving forward.

There are some typo and grammar issues, but not so much that it slowed my reading. There were also some characters in here that I liked that were never really fleshed out. I hope to see more development in the rest of the series.

This is one that I would recommend to anyone that enjoys PNR novels. I give A Job From Hell 5 stars:

This book is available in ebook and paperback formats, and I got mine from Amazon for $0.99.

(Which just happens to be the price that you would pay if you picked upThe River Runes right now!)

Thanks for reading!
buh bye then


  1. A Job from Hell sounds cool. I am constantly hearing the word Paranormal Romance, especially in connection with YA books. I must confess that I haven't yet read any. Need to wade through few of them in the next few weeks.

  2. It definitely is a great book, Rachna! This should be one of the first in your TBR pile for sure :)

  3. Thanks for the review... sounds like an interesting read.
