Overview

Fading Amber by Jaime Reed

Finding your soul mate is the ultimate dream come true. But for Samara Marshall, it's a matter of life and death. . .

After falling for a Cambion and then turning into one herself, Samara never thought her senior year could get more complicated. The gaps in her memory, the mysterious deaths, and the constant danger that threaten her once quiet town have a common thread: Tobias, a demon with a lot of enemies. He's also Samara's other soul mate and he's suddenly disappeared.

Samara knows the key to finding Tobias lies with her inner demon, who has her own agenda and threatens to take over completely. But Samara isn't the only one who wants to find Tobias. His enemies are getting closer, and their plans for retribution could mean deadly consequences for Samara and her true soul mate, Caleb. . ..

This was a stellar conclusion to Caleb Baker and Samara Nicole Marshall's love story. The book was full of unexpected twists and plenty of action and romance. I couldn't wait to see what will happen to Sam and Caleb after Tobias' interference. You can't help but feel for Tobias and also hate him at the SAME time. I enjoyed the alone Caleb and Sam time. I enjoyed Lilith, Tobias and Capone. I also appreciate the love Caleb has for Sam. When I finished reading this book I did NOT wait to end.  I need to know what will happen to Caleb and Sam, Mia and Doug, Ruiz and Sam's mom, Robbie Ford, and of course Mr. Marshall himself AFTER the conclusion of this book. I loved Sam's narrative voice and I wanted to know what her future will be after the book wraps.  For new fans of the Cambion Chronicles you gotta read this book because it serves a stand alone book as well. But for fans of the Cambion Chronicles you will appreciate all the little nods to Living Violet and Burning Emerald. Jaime Reed did a AMAZING job writing this beautiful love story.

irst of all let me say how much I loved this series!! I cannot believe that it does not have the huge following that it deserves! There is nothing that I can think of right now that I didn't love about any of the books. It is based on a different type of paranormal twist called Cambions, I had never heard of them before, and it was really cool. Also, this is one of the very few YA novels that I can think of that has the main character as bi-racial, Samara's Dad is African American, and her Mom is Caucasian, we NEED more of this, this is a normal family dynamic now. The action in this book took off right from the beginning, and did not end at all, there were some new characters introduced that we had not seen yet, and I really enjoyed how they all added something different to the story to bring it to an even higher place than the last ones had. I also found myself laughing aloud a few times at Caleb, he is a very funny guy. Also the romance between Samara and Caleb felt almost normal to me (besides the whole paranormal aspect), they are teenagers, they are going to bicker and make up, and get mad at each other for the little things, this is what we do at that age. I also really enjoyed the relationship that Samara has with her Mom in this book as her Mom is now aware of what the situation is, and she can speak to her openly about it, though her Mom does still rule with an iron fist sometimes. Overall, I think that this was a perfect ending to this series, although I would not be sad at all if she added on one more to the series just to see how everything unfolds after the big event in this book. I give this book, and the entire series a 5/5.

By: Jamie Reed Published By: Kensington Books Age Recommended: YA Reviewed By: Arlena Dean Rating: 4 Book Blog For: GMTA Series: The Cambion Chronicles #3 Review: "Fading Amber" by Jamie Reed was a good paranormal romantic read and the ending to this book series. I found this read really filled with a lot of fun and action. You will find the plot well thought out and a ending that left you wanting more. From the read there will be 'love, lust and a fight till the finish.' All of the characters were very well developed and colorful. This is where I say you must pick up "Fading Amber" to get the zest of a great ending story. Would I recommend? Yes, however, it would be best to have read all of this author's series: 'The Cambion Chronicles' for a better understanding of what the series leading up to this novel is all about.

Whoa, what a RUSH!!! Listen up readers, the coolest YA couple are Samara and Caleb, better known as SNM and Cake Boy. I had little doubt that Fading Amber would live up to my expectations, but it actually exceeded them! It was a rollercoaster ride from start to finish, and while Jaime Reed has brought The Cambion Chronicles to a satisfying conclusion, she’s got enough material to delve even further into this unique paranormal world. There are so many wonderful characters she could continue with and I would instantly purchase any future books. Besides, there’s always plenty of room for more diversity in the YA market. Speaking of diversity, why is it that most YA authors of color (with some notable exceptions) understand that the world has changed and that kids of different backgrounds interact with each other on a daily basis? Why is it that Ms. Reed’s series prominently features teens of every nationality in a realistic setting? And yes, it is a big deal that YA is so slow to get this fact. Samara is having one hell of a senior year. She’s got memory lapses, her Cambion host Lilith seems to like hanging out on the ceiling. Her former co-worker Nadine is still in her living room, a ghostly dead body that only she can see. Her best friend Mia still hates her guts, she’s still a guy magnet courtesy of Lilith, and Tobias is still loose and still in a very bad mood. He wants to get even, wants to claim his mate (who just so happens to be in Samara’s body and who just so happens to be in love with the guy he wants to destroy) and he doesn’t care about the body count. Unfortunately, the hunter is also the hunted as a rival Cambion clan seek his destruction, but that destruction has far-reaching repercussions for Sam and Caleb as well. Oh, and the urge of their respective Cambions to mate is beginning to overwhelm both of them. And Samara’s mom is still a walking advertisement for overprotective. I’ve said this in previous reviews, but truly Samara Marshall is such a refreshing change from the female helplessness so prevalent in some popular YA novels. It’s nice to encounter a smart, take-charge heroine who can actually tie one’s own shoes without needing the assistance of the hawt-boy-du-jour. It’s also refreshing to see a YA romance that doesn't read like immature wish-fulfillment which equates stalking and abusive behavior with “love”. I don’t always want nor need a romance in my YA, but when it is done well and there’s actually a compelling reason for the relationship, I enjoy it. Caleb is a wonderful hero, perfect in his imperfections. He doesn’t have to belittle Samara (not that she would ever let him) nor hamper her in the guise of “protecting” her. When he declares her his soulmate, it’s believable. He may be the stronger of the two, but he also respects and honors Samara’s autonomy. And let's face it, the scenes of the two of them "feeding" from each other were OMG so very hot. Adult paranormal authors could learn a few tricks from Ms. Reed about what makes a couple sizzle. Few YA heroes make me swoon, considering, but yes I am firmly on Team Cake Boy. I am sooooo bummed this is the last book. I wonder if I can bribe Ms. Reid to write another one...
