The Salamander Stone by CJ Fenge Book Review

The Salamander Stone by CJ Fenge

She’s just the girl-next-door, that long-legged pretty thing with the flowing auburn hair. Nothing special, just ordinary Amber Brigantia, a sixteen-year–old with boyfriends on her mind; nothing more.
But you’re wrong. Beneath that enigmatic smile lie dark secrets hiding an elemental power, and when those secrets come out, everyone wants her. Everyone wants a piece of Amber.

They murder her father and lock her mother in an asylum. Then they come after her, led by the charismatic Dr. Pitt who wants that power for himself. And he doesn’t care how he gets it, smiling and smiling as he twists the knife. But Pitt has a rival, the sadistic Mrs Fedorowicz. She wants Amber too and she is an expert at making people dance to her tune - a tune that can really hurt. 

Even those who love Amber cannot help her. Khiza, the African boy, is the lost other half of Amber’s soul, yet when she encounters the damaged and demonic Meshak she is torn in two and cannot decide what to feel any more. 

Then the demon Azmodeus suckers onto Meshak and time itself rocks in chaos, for the demon is after Amber as well - and what he wants is unspeakable. 

So let the power-games begin. And let that long-legged pretty thing be the prize.

My Thoughts: 

This was a very different kind of book, it took me some time to get into the book as I found it a bit slow moving at the beginning and really more about the politics of the school where the main character Amber was boarding at. It did pick up and the author does a great job at describing each character in great details. It is a different take on the regular vampire type books I have read in the past. I haven't read much fantasy so I can't compare but I did enjoy the authors writing style and would read more from CJ Fenge. It was great to read about the UK and Africa making it a fun journey to go on.

It is catagorized as a YA Thriller/Fantasy book and a nice change to the last few books I have read which have been erotica. If you are looking for something different and like a fantasy I recommend you check it out.
