When Emma moves to Astoria, Oregon, she is given two rules: #1 Dont cross to their side of the street.#2 Dont mess with the elites, especially Lexen Darken, top elite and resident bad boy. While she finds this both weird and insulting, Emma has no actual intention of breaking these rules - until her guardians go missing. Now all bets are off. Only a single line separates her side of the street from the elites', and she's crossing it.Captured and held by Lexen and his brothers, she learns the rules are in place for a very good reason. There's a secret world hidden in this small town which goes far beyond the one she knows and understands. A world not for humans....

House of Darken (Secret Keepers #1) Reviews
An Enjoyable 4.5
House of Darken, which I mentally renamed Draken, was a really good read which reminded me of The Supernatural Prison series, but different. The second half then reminded me of the First World series, but different before a quick trip back to, you guessed it the Supernatural Prison series!
Which leads me to conclude, if you liked the Supernatural Prison or First World series then I think you'll like this, cause it's like them, but different.
First time reading this author
I always love finding new series and authors. But finding one that is exceptionally talented is like winning the lottery. This is a really unique book. The author has created a very compelling world. I love both the characters and the storyline. Anybody who loves the paranormal will definitely love this book.
Amazing start of this series!!!... I'm already a fan of Jaymin, so it's not a surprise I loved this new book... It's so well written, good pace and fluent... I like the story line a lot, the mystery around "the elites" is so good, you don't expect what they really are once you find out... Emma is a strong, intelligent, really good person, who values every single person despite their origin... The elites are so arrogant and offensive to them, but she is so drawn into their world, that ends in her ...more
A decent read but felt super rushed and the action scenes were short and not very action packed. I also think lex and em should have had more time to know each other. They don’t even speak till almost half way through the book, really all of the elite and Emma needed more time together so that their friendships didn’t seem so forced. The second half of the book kinda flew through some world building which barely did it for me. Barely touched on the culture of the area. Lastly, I know they made a ...more
I love Jaymin Eve and all the creative ways she brings her characters to life. If you have read her Walker Saga series, this has a very similar base to it and OMG IT'S AMAZING! Thanks in character Emma is strong willed, spunky and hilarious and the guy is drool worthy and is a great companion for Emma. I'm telling you, this book and I'm not being presumptuous in saying, this series is AMAZING. So worth the buy and I'm going into a book coma waiting on the next one.
Thank you Jaymin for thi ...more
House of Darken by Jaymin Eve is a book I've been looking forward to reading - I really enjoy reading this author's books, with paranormal/fantasy reads definitely a favourite of mine.
I did find it a little slow initially, but the pace picked up and I was more interested in the storyline in the second half of the book. Same with Emma and Lexen - I wasn't really feeling the chemistry between them for the majority of the story, but the story interested me enough by the end that I will def ...more
Meh is pretty much the word to describe this. I finished it and I'll probably check out the next book in the series because I dug the world building but I sincerely hope the next leads are much more interesting.
I am a hard core Jaymin fan .. If she writes it i will read it... This book is FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC.. Just like all of Jaymin's books she takes you to brand new places and draws you in you don't want to stop reading .. This book was everything and more.. Jaymin doesn't disappoint you when you travel to any of her worlds .. I loved it from start to finish and can't wait for the next book ..
