Amber House is a young adult paranormal mystery novel. Critics have remained in disagreement over what genre Amber House best fits into; Kirkus Reviews dubbed it "horror romance," and Booklist cited the story's "Gothic feel," while Publishers Weekly claimed the story "straddles the lines between magical realism, fantasy, ghost stories, and horror, with a touch of romance and classic glamour." The authors categorize the book (and its sequels) as "a time travel series."
