      The Key To Erebus was probably the first ever vampire/paranormal fiction I've read where the action is set in somewhere other than the UK or the U.S. I loved the backdrop of the Dordogne countryside and found it to be a refreshing break from the norm and one that immediately caught my attention. I mean, vampires and witches in the French countryside? Really? Yeah, why the hell not! Immediately we are introduced to our main protagonist, Jehenne, somewhat a troubled girl, suffering from nightmaris [...]

      3.5 StarsFull Review:This book was pretty much the quintessential “centuries old vampire falls in love with teenage girl *SPOILER ALERT* (view spoiler)[who turns out to be his reincarnated love” (hide spoiler)] *END SPOILER ALERT* romance, but the thing about tropes is that they’re not inherently bad, it just depends how they’re written, and I thought this book just so happened to use the trope pretty well in combination with good characters and an interesting story, and the trope was re [...]

      A few years ago a girl came onto the scene called Buffy. Buffy killed vampires. She had a best friend who was a witch. Her friend who was a witch dated a werewolf. Buffy may have killed vampires but she also went out with two. She had a sister who was a 'key'. Her other friend, Xander, went out with a demon. If you have read The Key To Erebus all of this will sound VERY familiar.There is nothing new, ground-breaking or at all exciting about this novel. It is vampire romance schtick by numbers. T [...]

      This book started out with such great potential the prologue was interesting and intriguing introducing the possibilities of a fascinating storyline; however, once the storyline began to evolve, it lost focus and direction We meet Jehenne, an 18 year old girl who is introduced to a supernatural world she never knew existed only to discover that she is a powerful witch; understanding that she is young and naive to this new world allowed me to tolerate some of her impulsive, immature responses to [...]

      I’ve just read THE KEY TO EREBUS for the second time in anticipation for the sequel THE HEART OF ARIMA, and I’m still in that lovely post-book haze.Jéhenne Corbeaux is exactly the kind of heroine I enjoy reading: she’s independent, quick-witted, and not afraid to eat biscuits! It’s easy to see how such a powerful man could fall in love with her. My favorite thing about the book was not, Corvus, the (very) swoon-worthy love interest, Jéhenne’s adorable Britishisms, or the various myth [...]

      I don't care what anyone else thinks. This book is just awesome. So there's witches and vampires along with other supernaturals, that's the point of reading it if you love that kind of thing. I'm patiently waiting for the sequel while reading the author's other books, therefore, this book is worth the time reading it. One of my top 5 faves :P

      such an amazing book. My first in this type of Series and I look forward to reading more

      Abandoned - DNF - 68%The first 60% was relatively good. Unfortunately, the second half took a hiatus into the Twilight Zone.

      There are truly not enough words to describe how much I loved this book. Emma Leech has become one of my favorite authors from the instant I read one of her books I knew her others book would not disappoint. You can’t help but become a part of the world she has created for her characters it’s like you are literally right there along with them throughout their journey. The exquisite details lure you in and keep you enthralled and immersed in each of her stories.Jehenne Corbeaux is such a uniq [...]

      I liked the writing and the story was pretty interesting (I really wanted to see how it would all turn out) but the amount of romantic angst got to be a bit too much for me. Jehenne was an interesting character (if you put aside the gorgeous body, red hair/green eyes, magic snowflakeness, and everyone-wants-to-jump-meness) but some of the melodrama moments made me want to lock her in a room and throw away the key. I did love the fact that her grandmother is a very flawed character and not your u [...]

      Jehenne Corbeaux flees England, and her mother's insistence that her dreams are just that and nothing more to seek refuge with her somewhat eccentric, seemingly harmless grandmother.Her brief reprieve is shattered when a ghost pops up at her window, a mohican-sporting ghoul starts knocking at the door, and her grandmother reveals the Corbeaux families' gift (or curse, depending on who you ask about it).The Key to Erebus has an intricate plot, interwoven with the author's'Dark' seriesto create a [...]

      Zu Beginn dachte ich mir, dass dieses Buch wieder so eine abgedroschene Vampir-Geschichte sein wird und dieses Gefühl blieb sogar bis zu ca. einem Drittel der Handlung. Doch dann wurde die Geschichte wirklich spannend und umfassend. Es offenbarte sich eine Welt, die sehr gut durchdacht und interessant war und von der man mehr erfahren mochte.Leider waren die ewigen Zwistigkeiten und das Hin und Her der Hauptcharaktere sehr ermüdend. Sie liebten sich urplötzlich, hassten sich dann wieder, konn [...]

      I have to admit that I picked up this book because it was cheap. I surprised to find that I had chanced upon such a great story! Self-published, this book is an easy read that weaves connections between characters that you never saw coming but also some you do see coming on purpose. There isn't an angsty teen brat at the center of this story though she certainly can get a little silly in her love life. I felt connected to her easily as an independent thinker, strong woman, dealing with a difficu [...]

      I read this book a while ago and left a review elsewhere but neglected to leave one here, for which I apologise, here it is.I have one thing that I cannot stress enough. GET THIS BOOK!!!! It was fantastic! I was caught on a couple of occasions by my hubby neglecting the housework curled up on sofa reading as time had flown by. I'd pick this up to read a few pages to find a couple of chapters had gone by and yet still I read!! It was sooo good I almost missed the school run!!The main female chara [...]

Her family and the doctors do their best to dissuade Jehenne's "delusions," and they succeed for a time, but as Jehenne begins to reach adulthood, it all starts coming backAfter a family fight, Jehenne decides she needs a change of pace and visits her Grandmother in France. While there, Jehenne finds that maybe when her parents [...]

      To quote another: Frustrating charactersThere was enough interest in the basics of the story to MAKE myself finish the book, but in the words of another reviewer, FRUSTRATING CHARACTERS. ( I agree with that entire review) Namely, the h. I just couldn't tolerate her after the 1st 3rd of the book. Forced myself to finish the book but won't be able to garner enough interest to pick up the sequel.

    17. Lisa on said:

      This book was ok, mainly because Jehenne (main character) really bugged me. She made dumb choices, cried too much, and was emotional irrational most of the time. Not sure if I'll continue with the series.

    18. Angela on said:

      DNF at 68%. Just too long and slow, and too much teenager drama.

    19. Rebecca on said:

      3.5 stars!When I first started reading this book, I REALLY liked it. In fact, I was thinking about giving it 4 stars, at least. I found the characters to be somewhat interesting and different from each other. I liked the direction it was headed and the story in general. It was fun to discover alongside Jehenne. Then, somewhere in the middle, things got scattered and it felt a little all over the place. *SPOILERS*So, wait? Are we worrying about some new vampire? Wait, no, we are worrying about Ta [...]

      The Key to Erebus by Emma V Leech caught me by surprise. I'm generally more into sci-fi than fantasy, and I put vampires, werewolves and demons into that latter category - however this excellent first novel in the Les Courbeaux: The French Vampire Legend series immediately caught my attention. The writing is well-paced, and I was taken back to the last and only vampire/witch series that I've ever remembered enjoying 20 years ago, The Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice. Rice's books, especially towa [...]

    21. Dorn Carran on said:

      Very annoying romance spoilt the storyThis would have been a great story if it weren't for the Romance. It is one of those books where the characters fall madly in love within a day of meeting each other. What makes such a situation frustrating is that in this book we are told that the young witch,J. (I can't spell her name so I will refer to her as J.), is the spitting image, of the same bloodline, and has a similar name, to his one and only love. At the start of the book,J wonders if the atten [...]

    22. Dee on said:

      It was an enjoyable book. Definitely got better as it went along. I thought the main character was rather annoying in the first half of the bookl hot and cold damsel in distress, then pouty girl but she matured as the book went along. The other characters are definitely interesting and hold a lot of promise for the next books in the series. I plan to get the next book and see how the story continues. Another thing I appreciated was that the author gave us enough of a tie-up to the story that it [...]

      I have had this book on my kindle for at least a year maybe two. I decided it was time to read some of these books that have been here a while and why not a Vamp novel it is October. I really enjoyed this one. It feels like a historical fiction mixed with Vampires, Witches and Shape-Shifters. This one keeps you turning pages, the characters are just awesome. It did get a bit long to me somewhere around 60% I felt like I had been reading this for a week not days but it was very entertaining and a [...]

    24. Crystal Aires on said:

      Mind is blownI read through books like nobody business. When I want to read I’ll crunch through a whole book in a day. It took me five days in which to read this book. The author has a flair that is hard to find. I was gripped with fear for the characters as they struggled, cheered when they overcame a problem, and cried when they were hurt. Being able to find a story that has fantasy, thriller, and romance is exciting.

    25. Amanda Hicks on said:

      I really enjoyed the world Leech created. I was a little annoyed with how mature the FMC was at one moment and then she would be really childish the next. Also they're in France, why were more people not talking exclusively in French or at least speaking more French than she could understand easily?I really want to read more, but I really do not want to read more from FMC's point of view. She is exhausting.

      Couldn't wait to review this bookJahene an Corvus' story is so exciting and filled with twists and turns. Loved ever minute of it. Corvus is my favorite character but Rodney is such a marvelous character. Hope you write Rodney and Amelia's story. Excellent read. Starting on book two now.

      The key to debris : lea corbeauxA good read for people who are in to the series recommend highly can't wait for the next one of the series a really enjoyable read but long still enjoyable read

    29. Toni ~married to a hunk~ on said:

      This book was a great first book. The only thing I didn’t like was that the main character complained ALOT about her life. I know she was young but I tend not to like whiners in a book or real life. Otherwise it was a great story.
