Overview

Unborn by Amber Lynn Natusch

Born into mystery. Shackled to darkness....

Khara has spent centuries discovering everything about the Underworld―except her place in it. But when she’s ripped from her home, solving the riddle of her origins becomes more important than ever. With evil stalking her through the dark alleys of Detroit, she finds salvation from an unlikely source: a group of immortal warriors sworn to protect the city. Khara needs their help to unravel the tangled secrets of who and what she is—secrets many seem willing to kill for. But time is running out, and the closer she gets to the truth, the closer necessity binds her to an arrogant fallen angel.

Can their shaky alliance withstand that which threatens her, or will her soul fall victim to the unholy forces that hunt her―those that seek the Unborn?

From the author of the bestselling Caged series comes a pulse-pounding new series of supernatural romance.

About the Author

Amber Lynn Natusch is the author of the bestselling Caged, as well as the Light and Shadow series with Shannon Morton. She was born and raised in Winnipeg, and speaks sarcasm fluently because of her Canadian roots. She loves to dance and sing in her kitchen—much to the detriment of those near her—but spends most of her time running a practice with her husband, raising two small children, and attempting to write when she can lock herself in the bathroom for ten minutes of peace and quiet. She has many hidden talents, most of which should not be mentioned but include putting her foot in her mouth, acting inappropriately when nervous, swearing like a sailor when provoked, and not listening when she should. She’s obsessed with home renovation shows, should never be caffeinated, and loves snow. Amber has a deep seeded fear of clowns and deep water…especially clowns swimming in deep water.

I love Amber Lynn Natuschs other series Caged and had this on my list as soon as I heard of it. I'm a big fan of mythology and love to try anything with a hint of it in it and whats better than something concerning the Underworld! While I liked this, I didn't love it. I'm going to get the negative out of the way first. I found it quite hard to connect with Khara. She is so unfeeling and flat, which I know is the way she is supposed to be, but I wanted a bit more from her. While I was reading it, I felt like she was a bad actress in a movie who gives every sentence the same flat tone. She was like a robot.  I also thought that there would be more action. Don't get me wrong, there is action, just not enough. The action only really picks up towards the end.  Khara finds out that she has brothers and at times I was a bit grossed out with certain comments the boys had about her. They kept flirting and making suggestive comments towards her. They are her brothers and no way should they even have those thoughts!!! It was just so icky.  Also when she meets them its kind of weird because straight away she is taken into the fold and it's pretty much insta love. I mean come on, if you found you had another family member it would take time to get to know them. Not so much here!! She instantly becomes an important member of the family and all the brothers would die for her!!  It was a very slow story at the start and truthfully, the whole way through was pretty slow. It took me a few days to get through because I found my mind wandering a lot.  This doesn't have much world building and we don't get much explanation to why. Now there is a lot of information but not the right kind!! Now onto what I liked.  I really liked the plot, as such. I loved that she was there for 6 months and then she was sent above ground for 6 months. She takes the place of Persephone when she isn't there.  I also liked who her brothers were though I'm still a little confused by it!  I liked how she eventually started to show some emotion towards said brothers, though she was still incredibly flat. I liked Oz. He is the mysterious type though he is still mysterious because we don't find out much about him. Overall I liked it and I'm glad I have book 2 to get to straight away because I am curious to see where it goes. It's an OK book and I will continue on with the series in hopes that it gets better!!

**Warning you will not be able to put this book down! Amazing!!!  Absolutely loved this story!!! Amber Lynn Natusch does it again!!! She has me hooked! I need to know more now about Khara and what will happen to her. Holy hell....Oz......now he's a swoon worthy character! *sighs (I am so crushing on him).  What an amazing story of Khara who seems void of emotion. I really like her character and Oz.....god I hope book 2 gives us more on him and then we have the brothers. Now Casey he has my attention they all do. Do you like angels? Demons? Gods? Yes? Then this right here is for you. Look no further. Still need convincing? Hmm.....OK she is taken from her home in the Underworld, her brothers  (which she never even knew existed before now)  find her by accident, she has been hidden from her father. There is some major demon after her....enough yet? If you love her other books trust me you'll love this!

Unborn Review I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in return for an honest review! I have never read a book by Amber Lynn Natusch, but after reading this one I want to go read everything!  I really enjoyed this book. The beginning was slightly confusing. I know this can be read as a standalone, but I think it would have helped to have read the Caged series before this one. While you eventually do understand everything going on, it did take me a bit to get it all figured out. I really liked the pace of the story. The way the main character speaks is a little annoying because its a mix between language of today and language of the early 20th contrary or earlier. However, I understand why it happened that way and it does make sense when you take in the characters background.  The writing and pace of the story was good. I love paranormal stories, but especially those with gods and/or angels involved. That being said this book had a lot of paranormal elements that I liked. The pace was good which is always important to me. Overall there seemed to be very little character development but because this appears to be being turned into a series I hope to see that growth more in the next few books.  I was really surprised that our main character couldn't fight. I thought that she would at least have been taught to do that, but nope. Also, its a little confusing in terms of her sexuality. From what I gathered while reading the book she seems to have been raped several times, but we don't talk about that as effecting her at all. I understood that she had to survive in the Underworld and therefore felt nothing it seems like, but I wanted more depth to this character because of her harsh upbringing.  Oz seemed complicated. I am not sure where the author will take this character in future books, but there is a lot of character growth that can be done there. In terms of all the brothers. It was nice to get insight into all of them. They were each very individual despite being brothers. I was worried they would seem too similar or confusing, but the author did a good job of making each brother distinct.  I am very anxious to see where this series goes, but I did love this book and look forward to the sequel! 4/5

I received a copy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This was my first book by Amber Lynn Natusch. I enjoyed her writing and hope to see more from this series. This was a quick read that held my interest from the beginning. Khara comes off most of the time as an emotionless robot from the 17th century, but it all made sense to me. She didn't grow up in the world that we know, and the time that she did spend out of the underworld, was spent with Demeter, a horrible person that cared nothing for Khara, only for her daughter Persephone. Therefore, Khara had to have shields around her emotions or she never would have survived either the underworld or Demeter. Khara didn't know she had any family, especially not the brothers (Ares son's) she meets after being taken from the underworld and dropped in Detroit. Being a daughter of Ares herself she was hidden away long ago since Ares refuses to have any daughters and murders them all upon birth. After meeting her brothers Khara starts to slowly realize what it's like to have loving family members in her life, the bit with her brother Kierson kind of sort of hitting on her got tiresome though. The steam between Oz and Khara seemed obvious to me from the beginning. Oz couldn't keep his eyes off her and Khara's statements of her loathing Oz seemed a bit 'The lady doth protest too much, methinks'. All in all I really enjoyed this book and hope to see more from the series. I especially would like to see how Khara could possibly 'save' Oz.

Unborn, Unborn series 1,Amber Lynn Natusch Review from jeannie zelos book reviews   I’m not sure if this is just suffering from first book syndrome – where there’s so much being set for a series that the actual story gets lost in the world and character setting, or whether its just not a book to my taste. It sounded great, I love paranormal/fantasy romance, and it’s such an unusual setting. There’s parts of the Greek/Roman legends, and Gods and Goddesses from both, along with Angels both Dark and Light and some which seem to fall between the two, and then some oddities like the Gargoyles and the Soul Stealers and Breathers that prey on humans. We don't’ really see any normal human life or interaction here – its all centred around a very tight knit group of people who vow to protect and help Khara. I found it off-putting that they constantly bickered between themselves, there didn’t seem any real friendship or respect even though most of them were half brothers, being children of Ares, God of War. I’m more used to paranormals that work together because they like each other and respect their talents. Here it just seemed that fear of leader Sean was all that kept them going, even the twins didn’t act as brothers. Khara too seemed very odd, cold personality, un-emotional, and difficult to like. I get that she’s a product of her upbringing with Hades as a guardian and much of her life has been spent in the underworld, where she’d learned to be tough to keep herself alive. It made her a hard person to like though, and add in the brothers and the way I didn’t really know why they stayed together I found it difficult to enjoy the book. Its classes a Romance but we don’t get any real hint of that until a stolen kiss in the last few pages....Its very well written but I found being unable to really empathise or worry about any of the main characters made it a story that I struggled to enjoy. Maybe as further books are written and the story develops more, the individual personalities may develop, and the interaction with humans or purpose for the brothers and Khara will become clearer. Stars: Sorry, novel concept, well written but for me it didn’t work. Two   ARC supplied via Netgalley and publishers
