    This must be the most original book I have read. It even made my heart stop at some point from shock. I only thought omg, omg, but heck! I wanted MORE of it. I just had to read the whole thing again. Beelzebub Girl is even better than the first book. Cassandra has a light and dark nature to her, be prepared that this book is sad and funny.

The story is so different than a lot of books I have read lately. The suspense just kept me going. The characters are all great and you get the right twist at the right time. Forget sleep with this one. I couldn't go to bed until I finished it. I thought it was kinda funny that SHE was the one taking care of the GUY. But wow, she was good. And the storyline! Don't get me started! It touched me in some parts, I just felt like I was in there too, cause I felt kinda scared at times. I was so nervous to find out the ending. I mean, they only almost died every few pages!''Then the ending....No way, I'm just still shell-shocked. I hope the third one will be longer, and I still have so many unanswered questions. ''*Sighs* Okay, that is all. LOVED THE BOOK! REALLY GOOD READ! I just want more such books out there. Please Jadye Scott write faster. I need to find out what happens next. The cliffhanger just kills me.

    Beelzebub Girl, the second book in the Ancient Legends series, did not disappoint, but I recommend readers to read the first book so they know why things must be happening this way and not take a different direction. I could imagine otherwise things might be too confusing since there's a love story but not a predictable ending per se.

I could imagine otherwise things might be too confusing since there's a love story but not a predictable ending per se. In this book, Cassandra finds out she has a bond with a human- Dallas, but this is not the problem. As Lucifer's daughter she has more to fight against, more enemies, more obstacles placed in her path. With everything against her and her romance, Cassandra's running out of time. Literally. It seems a love romance seems farther away, especially as she finds out she has a curse and she is supposed to take over the family business, even though she doesn't want to. This read was filled with suspense and emotion. I laughed, but I also cried and felt for Cassandra a lot. She was from all the characters very well written, with a human but also a diabolical side to her (she's Lucifer's daughter and half dark angel, after all.) Beelzebub Girl must be the most original story I have read and I am very happy I gave this one a chance though I must say I didn't see the ending coming and maybe this is good this way, since I love surprises and have complained in the past about books that are too stereotyped or worse yet- too ordinary or cliche. Nevertheless, this wan't a predictable read. I am so happy there is a third book in the series and I hope that mystery will be solved. Jayde Scott is an amazing writer who again managed to impress me. I can say with confidence that Beelzebub left me hungry for more. I enjoyed every minute reading this one. I loved it. Devoured it. And was taken aback by the beautiful writing. There were so many things happening in this book, you must read it!

    I've read A Job From Hell and liked it (see my review), so naturally I picked up the second book in the series. This one started where the other stopped but from a different perspective. The story evolves around Cassandra and Dallas, so you don't necessarily have to have read the first book to find your way around easily.

When Lucifer's daughter, Cassandra, meets Dallas they're immediately drawn to one another through the ancient bond they share, one spun by fate. Cassandra's summoned by her father back to Hell to take care of an immediate assignment (I won't say what it is because I don't want to spoil the plot). Since she doesn't want to leave Dallas behind, she pretends they're going to California and takes him with her. That's where the fun begins. Dallas is smitten with her and believes every word she says, but he's not stupid. I loved to read about Cass' and Dallas' relationship and how it develops, particularly from the point on when she finds out there's a curse on her back and she must get married to her soulmate before she turns eighteen. But how do you persuade a guy to marry you when marriage never featured on his bucket list and when your father's overprotective Lucifer himself? Beelzebub Girl is just as action packed and humorous as the first book, if not more so since Cass is simply hilarious. I kept turning the pages and read the book in one day because I couldn't stop. Cass' family was great and well developed and they're certainly a colorful bunch. The ending was one I never saw coming. It had me laughing and in tears, but I won't say in which order. Thoroughly recommended read.

    This wasn't your usual take on paranormal romance. It was a dark, gothic read with different paranormal elements such as reapers and fallen angels. I'm not one to sum up the plot because it's usually been done before, so I'll just focus on the various elements. This is certainly a well written, fast paced read, about 350 print pages long, with lots of action but also new paranormal elements. We have two vampires but they don't drink blood or avoid the sun, and we barely get to see them. The whol This wasn't your usual take on paranormal romance.

This is certainly a well written, fast paced read, about 350 print pages long, with lots of action but also new paranormal elements. We have two vampires but they don't drink blood or avoid the sun, and we barely get to see them. The whole paranormal world focuses around hell and the demons as well as reapers and ghosts. We get a glimpse at the Shadows by the end, but not a deep one, so I suspect that's going to be dealt with in the next book. I found Beelzebub Girl to be an entertaining read, quite dark and twisted in places. The romance part between Dallas and Cass was well developed and I could see the tension between them. This is clean Y/A, however, so you're not going to get hot action between the sheets. Nevertheless, I was thankful for that because too many young adults books out there try to imitate adult paranormal romance and it's just not right for teens and younger readers. I liked Cass a lot, not least because she's feisty and comes with quite a bit of emotional baggage (her angel parents are separated, she finds it hard to find friends because everyone's scared of her and her father, her father doesn't approve of her dating a mortal etc.) She's not a quitter and I found myself lost in her world that at times she outshone even Dallas (her love interest). Don't get me wrong, he was great and sexy, but he paled compared to her and her aunts. The plot had quite a few twists and originality to it. Several times I thought I had the story figured out, until it turned in a different direction. The story is rounded up but there's also a cliffhanger ending leading into a sequel. Definitely a different read and unusual for paranormal romance, and one that I enjoyed very much. If you like darker fiction (not necessarily gore and blood because there's none of that in it, but a plot dealing with death, curses, dark magic, a new take on hell and demons etc.), this one is for you.

    Wow, where do I even begin with the series? It's my favourite. 5 stars is simply an understatement. Give it 10! In my opinion, J. Scott has outdone herself this time! Beelzebub Girl is even better than A job from Hell and yet so completely different, maybe because we are now dealing with a dark angel- who has a different character than Amber, the main character in the first book, and yet she is so vulnerable and innocent in her own way if that's even possible.

To understand her is not really our quest and one shouldn't forget that she is not one of us. The love story of Cass and Dallas completely warms my heart, they are both different yet perfect for each other. But seriously, what would you do if you fell in love with the devil's daughter ? Isn't love grand?? The point to remember is: you can't choose who you love. love chooses you. This novel has been all dramatic, and yet is so addictive. I don't think I ever saw certain things/twists/the ending coming. How the hell did J.Scott come up with this fantastic plot? Like I said before, Jayde Scott has become my #1 favorite author and any true fan of the the Ancient legends series can tell you these characters are seriously amazing.They feel like old friends now, so after I read a job from hell and bought the second book, it's like reuniting with them all over again. I am now very excited and can't wait to read the third book. This book is worth your time! READ IT. It will touch your heart, your mind and soul.

    After reading the first book in the series, I had high expectations for the second book which were fulfilled but in a different way than I expected. To know your way around this book, you need to have read the first one, A Job From Hell, otherwise I fear you won't know who everyone is. With the Shadows popping up halfway through and Aidan and Amber arriving in hell to tie in on the last book's ending, you're better off by pushing this one aside until you have read the first.

This said, I thought this book was a great read. Very dark and gloomy but also funny in places. Cassandra's just like I would picture Lucifer's daughter, albeit without the need for torture. She's a nice girl with a bit of a bad girl's attitude. She's not afraid to embrace who she is but she's stubborn as a mule and doesn't want to. Dallas as a love interest was a strange choice. I would have expected to see someone stronger like Kieran in his place but I guess the ending wouldn't have worked if the writer picked someone else as her 'mate'. A great sequel with new paranormal elements that I wouldn't quite classify as a paranormal romance. It's more fantasy with a paranormal twist or humorous paranormal chick lit because Cassandra steals the show and focus from everyone else. I'm eagerly awaiting book three and hope I'll be given an ARC. Wink.

    The first book in this series was a quick read for me and I liked the characters and story line, so I figured I'd go ahead and read the second. This book took FOREVER to get going. There were a few things that were clever, but for the most part, this book was terrible. The huge lie that is fed to Dallas about his location is unbelievable and makes him look like a huge idiot for believing it. If he was 10, maybe, but as a male lead, it made him (and the book) look ridiculous.

If he was 10, maybe, but as a male lead, it made him (and the book) look ridiculous. I also had issues with the way the other "supernatural" events took place. There was a much better way for all of them to be done without seeming so childish. The author should have spent more time thinking clever, creative ways for the "other worldly" aspects to take place. At around page 300, I had to fight to finish reading it. I honestly wanted to walk away, but I decided that since I'd already read that far, I might as well finish and at least get to the conclusion. There lies the last, most frustrating part of the book... THERE WAS NO CONCLUSION. I understand leaving SOME loose ends to leave room for another book, but I would say that 90% of the "ending" was non-existent! I learned my lesson and will definitely not be reading the next book.

    This is a must Summer read!!!If you're new to Jayde Scott, then hang on for a heart pounding author who knows how to get the blood pumping. Looks like the little Amber "Clan" is here again in the second book of the Ancient Legends series and it was all interesting to see them all coming together again: Dallas, Cass, Amber, Aidan. Cass was already my favourite from the first book and she still is my favourite from all. She has the kind of personality I want to have.

If you think you know the answer, think again. This was a fantastic book: unpredictable and original. And I loved every minute of it. Hope Voodoo Kiss comes out sooner.

    Cassandra was my favourite character from the previous book and she didn't disappoint in this one. I enjoyed getting to know her a little better and finding out more about her life in hell, about Lucifer and the demon ranks. I didn't expect Dallas to be the one for her but after I got over the initial shock (I thought it'd be Kieran because they had so much spark), I really got into the plot which kept me guessing and the romance part was well-developed.

    I received this book from Jayde Scott and I have to say that I loved this story. I really liked Cassandra’s character in the first book ‘A job from hell’ but I love her in this book even more. On the outside Cass looks like your average teenage girl, she’s fun, quirky, hilarious, loves shopping and loves her job as a customer consultant, but what most people don’t know about her is that she is anything but average; not only is her mother an angel but her dad just happens to be Lucifer.

Cass enjoys living among humans and doing normal everyday things, but one day the unthinkable happens and she falls in love with a mortal. When Cass and Dallas bump into each other she is immediately drawn to him, unbeknown to the couple it is actually an ancient bond that has befallen them; one that can’t be denied. Did I mention that Dallas knows next to nothing about the paranormal world? I don’t want to give too much of the book away, I want readers to read this book with an open mind. I will say though that I didn’t want to get my hopes up with this book because I loved the previous one so much and I find that in many series’ I love the first book only to be disappointed by the next. Fortunately for me though I enjoyed this book more than its predecessor, Ms Scott does a fine job of enthralling her readers by creating such a beautiful world that we all want to be a part of. This book is action-packed, has just enough romance, and is hilarious; I was literally laughing out loud in certain parts of the book. If you like ‘A job from Hell’ you are going to love this one. Thank you so much Ms Scott for this remarkable book you have acquired a devoted follower, for as long as you write books I will be sure to read them.

So I give extra stars for good writing, good story line and for keeping me addicted. All in all, Doomed is just perfect. I didn't laugh as much as with the first book as there are dark twists and I had to cry, but it's still far better than the first one and comes with a cliff hanger ending.

    Ok so this book this is amazing. At first I was trying really hard to hate it since I’m a church goer and don’t feel very comfortable reading about Lucifer. But I finished it in one day on my ipad in college… and I must say I love this novel. It’s so much different than I expected. It’s wonderfully written and Cassandra is actually likeable. Correction. She is amazing. Having read this, I can't now imagine anyone not loving this book so don’t let the title scare you. I am so glad I didn’t judge Ok so this book this is amazing.

    TERROR-IFIC! This novel is even better than A job from Hell, the first book of the series. It really really had me hooked....

It had me hooked from the first chapter, all the way to the finish.

The swooning after knowing someone for all of two minutes annoyed me, the moving in together after an hour long conversation annoyed me, the "let's get married" after less than a week was ridiculous whether you're bonded or not especially since the proposal was forced! Cass is the devil's daughter and she swoons like a puppy over Dallas. There is no real character development or relationship development. The characters from the first book are tied into the second but even that situation is poorly developed. By the time anything is revealed, you have to have read 80% of the book, listened to lots of swooning and visiting people that have virtually no relevance whatsoever in furthering the story. Then there is a cliffhanger end which has the return of the shadows, Rebecca the dead vampire, the death of Dallas and the discovery of an important supernatural being who needs to be found all in the span of 30 pages to entice the reader to buy the next book. There is too much going on at the end almost as if the author couldn't really decide which direction she wanted to take so she took them all and a catastrophe resulted. Too bad you have to suffer the entire book to find out it led nowhere at all! I can't believe I even finished the story...I either felt the need to torture myself or my completionist nature took over, perhaps, a little of both. Honestly, I don't think I could suffer the ridiculousness of another book. This is one series that is better dropped now rather than wasting any more time on it.

She is the perfect friend, chaotic but with also with an innocent sugar angel side. 5 stars for a well written and thoughtfully constructed book that kept me up till 4 am because I couldn't sleep because I wanted Dallas so badly. he he

    Definitely worth the small price of $2.99. I bought all the books of the series and LOVED them. And in its own little way, it was a romance book but not an ordinary romance, but more a mystical romance where two people share a blessed and cursed bond given by the fates . I laughed, I cried, I feared, and worried and I was even in love with one character. I've bought many 10 dollar books lately that weren't half as good!

    I'm the writer so I'm probably biased :-) Either way, I love this book. Cass was my favourite character to write because she's quirky and someone you'd have a lot of fun with. She's also different, a bad girl who tries really hard to be good, and she stands out from the crowd. My second favourite character from the book is Patricia aka the Seer, who's bound to a haunted bakery. I'd love to dedicate a whole book to her one day.

    I was excited to get my hands on this book! I had read book one and was hooked. I had met Cass and Dallas in `A Job From Hell' and LOVED their characters. To the world, Cass is like any other teenage girl. She has lots of friends, loves to shop, and has a great job in customer service. But she hides a deep dark secret from the mortal world-she is half demon, half angel...and Lucifer's daughter. Rebelling against her father's wishes, she mingles with humans and blends in without anyone suspecting I was excited to get my hands on this book! I had read book one and was hooked. I had met Cass and Dallas in `A Job From Hell' and LOVED their characters. To the world, Cass is like any other teenage girl. She has lots of friends, loves to shop, and has a great job in customer service. But she hides a deep dark secret from the mortal world-she is half demon, half angel...and Lucifer's daughter. Rebelling against her father's wishes, she mingles with humans and blends in without anyone suspecting a thing. This is the world and life she adores. She's not into oven-heat, torture, and hanging out with Dad and his demons. Maybe it has something to do with her angel DNA. Falling in love with a mortal was the last thing she ever expected to happen. When she meets Dallas, she is immediately drawn to him. She can't deny the connection...the chemistry between them. Little do the two of them know, they share an ancient bond. When Cass is called back to Hell to help with a major campaign for Dad, she is heartbroken to leave Dallas behind. She wants to bring him. But how does she tell him that her dad is the Devil himself and Hell isn't some fairy tale made up to scare people? Simple. She doesn't! Dallas is led to believe her father is a normal human being who runs Disneyland. He thinks he's there to help run a major campaign for the theme park. The twists and turns will leave you doubled over in laughter as she tries to hide their true location. Cass is anxious to get this assignment done and get back to Earth until she learns that once she turns 18 in a few weeks, she is bound to Hell forever. The only way to break the curse is to get free-spirit Dallas to marry her. Things only get complicated when Dallas's sister, Amber and her hunky vampire boyfriend, Aiden are forced to hide out in Hell because they are being chased by powerful forces. Amber holds a gift that the Immortal world will kill for. Another entity has put a target on Dallas so it can seek revenge on Aiden. Cass swears to protect her one true love at all costs. Amber warns Dallas that Cass is nothing but trouble. Amber knows all about Cass's secret Immortal world. She knows dating an Immortal firsthand isn't easy. She doesn't want the same for her brother and feels as if though she has to protect him. Cass is beside herself. How does a girl get a guy to marry her with a troublesome future sister-n-law meddling and standing in the way? How does she persuade The Prince of Darkness himself to let his little girl spread her wings and fly out of the nest for good? And there's more obstacles standing in the way-Cass also has to get permission to get married from all three of her aunts who can't agree on a single thing. This book is suspenseful, fast-paced, and you'll find yourself rooting for Cass. You will not believe all the twist and turns this plot takes. The characters are compelling and you will fall in love with them. The ending is a real shocker! I would recommend this book to everyone! This my favorite fantasy series ever. I know you will enjoy it as much as I do. : )

    I read the first book in this series and wanted to read more, plus the cover of this book really caught my attention. I’m so glad that I bought it because I absolutely love it. I loved Cassandra in the first series so couldn't wait to read this one. I love that she's the daughter of the Devil and her home is Hell. Wonderful. She has to break a curse in order to escape. It’s sort of a Star-Crossed lovers as she falls in love with a mortal. Cass is a cunning little fox and quite hilarious, though I read the first book in this series and wanted to read more, plus the cover of this book really caught my attention.

I love the tiny devil that sits on her shoulder annoying her. I enjoyed the first book and this one is just as good. Loved the surprise ending too. The story is fast paced and has you on the edge of your seat. Fantastic. Can’t wait till the next one. Jayde Scott is a fantastic author.

    Jayde Scott has woven a gripping story of Lucifer's daughter Cassandra, a fallen angel. Worthy to love and to be loved, one cannot help but wonder how she is going to be able to have a relationship with a mortal when a series of events try to tore the two apart. Never before was a love between an angel and a mortal so desired and yet vulnerable and hopeless. Not many authors can bind such strong and charming characters into a fast paced page turner.

    It was an amazing book, very much worth reading. I enjoyed all the twists and turns, it kept me on the edge of my seat, quickened my heartbeat, and made me look around and question my surroundings. I like it most because of the afterlife references and thoughts that will make you think about things that are not usually things we think about. My daughter introduced me to this author and I can say that she is an amazing writer.

Doomed is the second book in 'The Ancient legends' series by Jayde Scott. This book picks up a few weeks after the events of 'A Job from Hell' but the focus of this book is on Cassandra 'Cass' and Dallas (Amber's brother). Following a random phone call from a disgruntled customer to her place of work Cass is re united with Dallas and there is no mistaking what that 'spark' they had in book one has kindled into regardless of the time and space that had separated them for the past few weeks. Things move ahead really quickly but with both of them keeping secrets, is their relationship 'Doomed' from the start? Soon Cass has her hands full dealing with her fathers growing demands to learn the 'trade' and his insistence on making Hell a more desirable place to be, spending time with Dallas and their growing relationship . . . knowing he is keeping something from her and needing to know what, whilst also keeping him in the dark about who she really is . . . oh, and then there’s also a pesky curse to deal with . . . Has she bitten off more than she can chew? Both Cass and Dallas were stand out characters in book one for me and I was hoping we would get a book about them because they obviously had a 'spark' between them and I’m glad we didn’t have to wait too long. I LOVE the humor in this book especially Cass, she’s fun-loving, mischievous, independent, rebellious, feisty, used to getting her own way . . . . . . . Well, she would be all of those things considering she is Lucifer’s daughter! I liked the fact that by being with Dallas we also saw another side to her. She became vulnerable and unsure about herself, wondering if she left Dallas's side that he would find someone else and then we had her protective side, knowing that Dallas could be hurt and trying to protect him at all costs even by helping him through helping others and it ended up not stopping there either. It was funny in some ways the lengths she would go to in order to keep Dallas in the dark and I think she is my favourite character so far in the series and I must give a shout out to Kinky and Pinky the sidekicks from heaven & hell. There was a lot going on in this book that all came together nicely in the end and I enjoyed the fun, easy read that it was. I liked the way Hell is described not just as a place of cruelty but having different layers to it depending on circumstance and we get a glimpse at their function. We got a little of the old blended in with the new, met new people and saw new places as the Ancient Legend world expands, maybe giving us some insight into future books ? Cass and Dallas's story is far from over as the book ends with an awesome cliff hanger that is going to leave you wanting more . . . . . I know I do!

    Ugh I did not like this book as much as a Job from Hell. This book was in Cass' POV and about her and Dallas' bond, but seriously they meet again go on 1 date and decide to move in together it just moved to fast. Then there is Dallas who believes everything Cass tells him such as her dad runs Disneyland but really is Lucifer and so here Dallas is walking into Disney and all of a sudden they teleport to hell and are surrounded by dead trees and boulders, and Dallas sees a Volcano erupt yeah it is Ugh I did not like this book as much as a Job from Hell.

It drove me crazy how gulable he is, I know guys aren't the brightest crayons in the box but this was overkill. I also got confussed in some parts in the book especially the end with Rebecca and her going after Theo and drinking her blood even though she is a ghost so how that is possible is beyond me just to find Theo's sisters name because she can bring people back from the grave and I was like UGHif that was possible why didn't she bring Theo back to life after she was murdered I got irritated I did. But the reason I am giving it 3 stars is because when it was good it was really good and I did enjoy some parts.

    This book was horrible! I bought it thinking it would be awesome: It had 5 stars for God sakes! And I was so terribly disappointing! There were huge holes in the plot, the main character was such a liar i made me cringe, her boyfriend was completely stupid not to question anything, there was almost no romance, parts of the plot hardly connected back to each other..... I could probably keep going for a while, the book was really that bad. I implore you, DO NOT READ THIS BOOK! Despite being only 2 This book was horrible!

Despite being only 2.99 on Nook, it is so not worth it and the only reason I even finished the book was just for the sake of finishing it, but it took me so much longer than usual because I DREADED reading it. DO NOT READ!

    What if the only person you fell in love and you are destined to be with can never be yours? Will you be able to change or outrun FATE? What if the only person that can help you runs from you? The book reminded my of why I grew up loving to read. This series surprised me, to say the least. I got reeled in from the first page and I didn't want to go till I was finished. The story of Cassandra, a sweet girl with a charm on her own, moved me to bits. And the ending- don't get me started.

    Don't get me wrong the first book was amazing. It's what started it all , but this one I found myself more into. I couldn't put it down at all. There was a lot twists and turns. There's a lot of action and the new characters are pretty interesting. And the ending- it was shocking. I read the last chapter three times because I couldn't believe my eyes.
