Confessions of an Opinionated Book Geek35 stars “Burning Emerald” begins a few weeks after the events of “Living Violet” Sam is learning that her new life as a Cambion isn’t the greatest situation in the world She is a guy magnet and she attends high school All day she must endure the immature leering of high school boys and the catty jealousy of high school girls Sam wishes for the days when everyone ignored her but there is nothing she can do to change her current state Luckily she has her slightly older and Cambion experienced boyfriend Caleb to help her cope and understand her new existence Everything seems to be working out for Sam but this is a book and nothing works out for long Enter Malik a boy Sam has known all of her life Now that Sam is Cambion she notices strange things about Malik that sets her on edge It doesn’t help that he is always staring at her and spreading rumors around the school that they’re hooking up It turns out that Sam’s Cambion has a connection to Malik that no one sees coming and the reveal leads to a story that is frightening intriguing and very frustratingI enjoyed the second installment of the “Cambion Chronicles” a lot than its predecessor The writing is smoother the story focused and the action seuences had me on the edge of my seat I really enjoyed where Jaimie Reed took us and was absolutely shocked by the end of the story Not so much the events but the fact that she left us with such a huge cliffhanger The story ended and I wanted to scream “NOOOO I WANT MORE”The saving grace of “Living Violet” is Sam She was smart assertive and not uick to trust Caleb and his strangeness I opened “Burning Emerald” with the anticipation of loving Sam Unfortunately halfway through I realized that I lost my love for Sam Lost it Sam lost her independence her smart no nonsense attitude and her assertive behavior She went from a lioness to a lamb Her behavior and choices were extremely difficult to swallow I could not believe how self absorbed and out of touch she became with the people around herI understand that the plot has to keep moving and evolving but she did not spend nearly enough time thinking about Caleb She becomes so obsessed with Malik There is this pretext that she is protecting Caleb and that Lilith is actually the one obsessed with the other guy but Sam should have been feeding images of Caleb and Capone to her roommate Sam just seemed flighty and fickle; like she latches on to every mysterious and dangerous guy she meetsWhen everything hits the fan Sam takes a downward spiral In “Living Violet” she demanded Caleb take responsibility for all of his actions In “Burning Emerald” Sam spends half the book moaning it isn’t her fault and that it’s all beyond her control It really got sickening how Sam lets things spiral out of control She is the one who kept uiet She is the one that opened a door for Malik to walk through Her inability to claim responsibility for her actions really weakened her as a character and made it difficult for me to root for her in any capacityI was unimpressed by Caleb in the first book but I absolutely fell in love with him in “Burning Emerald” I’m not sure if it’s because Malik was the other option or because of Capone’s influence but I love Caleb So much so that every stupid choice Sam made infuriated me I felt like a mistress watching the wife mess up I was all “Why does he love her” and “Caleb you deserve so much better” Yea it’s a bit overdramatic but really Caleb deserved better Sam completely ignores her friends evades Caleb and continuously lies or omits important information from her friends Mia Sam’s best friend is obviously having some kind of Dougie related meltdown Every time that relationship is mentioned it’s because Mia reaches a new level of crazy and melodrama Sure Sam is dealing with her own crap but this is her closest friend Sam could not be bothered to take an interest in anyone beside herselfThen there is the story with Malik I believed it and found it very interesting but boy did I hate that character Malik spreads disgusting rumors about Sam He follows her around hints that Sam should not be dating a guy of another race and continuously makes her uncomfortable by staring If that isn’t enough Malik cages Sam behind the bleachers calls her a tease and then proceeds to attack her This is the guy that Sam and Lilith spend so much time obsessing over This guy who breaks into the house unannounced and is so focused on Lilith he could careless about Sam I don’t think that the reader is supposed to root for Malik in anyway and I don’t believe there is supposed to be a legitimate love triangle Still Sam spends a lot of time thinking about Malik and it really made it difficult to like her Caleb spends a lot of this book in real jeopardy and it’s amazing to me that Sam let another guy get into her head when her boyfriend needed herMy issues with Sam aside this is a much stronger book than “Living Violet” The characters were better flushed out and I felt like the world became wider and even interesting Again the ending is a cliffhanger and keeps you wanting Luckily the third book in the series “Fading Amber” is released this Monday December 24 2012 Men on the Edge very frustratingI enjoyed the second installment of the “Cambion Chronicles” a lot than its predecessor The writing is smoother the story focused and the action seuences had me on the edge of my seat I really enjoyed where Jaimie Reed took us and was absolutely shocked by the end of the story Not so much the events but the fact that she left us with such a huge cliffhanger The story ended and I wanted to scream “NOOOO I WANT MORE”The saving grace of “Living Violet” is Sam She was smart assertive and not uick to trust Caleb and his strangeness I opened “Burning Emerald” with the anticipation of loving Sam Unfortunately halfway through I realized that I lost my love for Sam Lost it Sam lost her independence her smart no nonsense attitude and her assertive behavior She went from a lioness to a lamb Her behavior and choices were extremely difficult to swallow I could not believe how self absorbed and out of touch she became with the people around herI understand that the plot has to keep moving and evolving but she did not spend nearly enough time thinking about Caleb She becomes so obsessed with Malik There is this pretext that she is protecting Caleb and that Lilith is actually the one obsessed with the other guy but Sam should have been feeding images of Caleb and Capone to her roommate Sam just seemed flighty and fickle;

Fight a battle where she is the enemy and the prizeand victory will come at a deadly pricePraise for Living VioletSexy and snarky I dare you not to laugh while reading this fantastic debut Kody Keplinger author of The Duff and Shut OutJaime Reed breathes fresh life into paranormal romance Lee Nichols author of the Haunting Emma series. 35 stars Burning Emerald was a good read but it didn't lure me in like Living Violet With Living Violet I couldn't wait to finish reading the book But with this novel it took me than a few days which isn't usually the case But I'm one of those girls that once I invested time into a series I need to see it all the way through So regardless how empty Burning Emerald left me I will go forward and read her next novel Fading Amber Which also sounds promising so let's see In this novel you learn a lot about Lilith the demon inside Samara And you also get to meet Capone Caleb's demon That's where the book got interesting They kept me reading They are not pretty These demons are greedy little things so when their claws are out No one is safe Samara goes through a lot with her demon inside Also you get to meet a new character who turns out to be very complex I wasn't sure what to think of him So that was really interesting Ms Reed wrote a good story But it fell a bit short for me I can't really say where it fell short because I'll be spoiling it However I do like the way she writes her characters Especially Samara she's a really strong character with an awesome personality I give this book a 3 stars out of 5 Overall I do recommend this series to those readers who are into demons incubus' and succubus So if that's your thing then I hope you enjoy this serieshttpwwwgoodchoicereadingcom2012
