{Review} Scarred by Amanda Leigh



Scarred (Beauty of the Dark #1)
by Amanda Leigh
Release Date: April 17th 2017
Genre: Young Adult, Paranormal, Fantasy

A sassy witch, a vampire sworn to protect her, and a vampire that’s falling for her...? All bets are off.


Kiara was born with power. At eighteen, her powers are peaked, and she's destined to destroy the demon threatening her home town. But even with her power and the help of Kaleib, a vampire who’s like an older brother to her, they're not strong enough to stand against the evil. Enter Trent, a vampire with a secret past, and the tables turn, giving them a fighting chance.


Kiara shouldn’t feel anything toward Trent, especially since Kaleib hates him, but a strong attraction builds between them during their mission. Trent has successfully avoided caring about anyone for over one hundred years, and he plans to keep it that way. When Kiara asks for help, he can’t seem to deny her. Never would he imagine that he’d run into Kaleib, someone from his past--a vampire who knows his secret. Trent convinces himself he's aiding Kiara for his own selfish amusement, but the little witch seems immune to his charms and she's chipping away at his walls. To his dismay, he finds himself beginning to care for Kiara.


Between the demon that wants to kill her and two fighting vampires, how will things play out for Kiara and Trent? Will this demon let them live to find out?













This was an interesting read with strong characters and full of paranormal elements. It didn't captivate me and keep my attention but the author has a word with words.

Amanda Leigh has had a love of words since before she could write them herself. Once she learned to read and write herself she just couldnt stop. She reads any genre as long as the book sounds interesting. Which may explain why she cant and never will be able to stick to one genre in her writing. From Contemporary Romance to Womens Fiction to Paranormal Romance to Poetry and more to come. When shes not writing or reading she enjoys getting swept away in a great TV show, going to the theater, listening to music, cooking and many different forms of art. She has a cat she adores and also loves Psychology, tea, coffee, chocolate and Elvis Presley. Not necessarily in that order. Feel free to get in touch with her.
