Publisher's Summary

"I was sixteen the first time my grandmother died. . . ."
Sarah Parsons has never seen Amber House, the grand Maryland estate that's been in her family for three centuries. She's never walked its hedge maze nor found its secret chambers; she's never glimpsed the shades that haunt it, nor hunted for the lost diamonds in its walls.
But after her grandmother passes away, Sarah and her friend Jackson decide to search for the diamonds - and the House comes alive. She discovers that she can see visions of the House's past, like the 18th-century sea captain who hid the jewels, or the glamorous great-grandmother driven mad by grief. Sarah grows closer to both Jackson and a young man named Richard Hathaway, whose family histories are each deeply entwined with her own. But when her ghostly visions start to threaten the person she holds most dear, Sarah must do everything she can to get to the bottom of the House's secrets, and stop the course of history before it is cemented forever.

YOU WON'T REGRET THIS ONE!!!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Addicting, mesmerizing. Beautifully and skillfully written. Stands out in the YA genre. Each passage is lyrical imagery. No one could have narrated better than Tucker Reed. I was so engrossed in this book. Can't wait for the sequel in January 2014.


Who was your favorite character and why?

Only one? I loved them all! They were all believable. I felt like I knew them--their motives, beliefs, actions all made sense yet there were several surprises as well.


Which scene was your favorite?

Don't want to give anything away...but loved the scenes with Sarah and Sam, anything with the house and the past...okay no spoilers.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

YES YES YES YES!


Any additional comments?

PLEASE AUDIBLE GET TUCKER REED TO NARRATE THE SEQUEL AS SOON AS IT COMES OUT IN JANUARY 2014!!!!!!

Spooky great book!

What did you love best about Amber House?

I would have given it 5 stars if the ending were not incomplete. I loved this story I even got scared at parts which takes me a lot to get spooked but it really wraps you in. There were so many interesting story lines that never got wrapped up at the end I was so disappointed but I still loved the story just be ready for a let down at the end and many questions left hanging! If she would have just written one more chapter would have been 5 stars and fab! Can't wait for the next book in the series!
