This is a secretive book, full of mysteries and gorgeous prose. Reading it is like having a vivid dream where nothing quite seems real, and everything is dangerous. I loved it. So haunting and ethereal. Ms. Billingsley is truly a master of her craft....more

Sara I just finished Deception and I can not wait for the next book!! Deception was, hands down, one of the best sequels I've ever read. It suffered none of the second book blues and it didn't get political and boring. You are amazing and I'm a fan for life!! Any idea when the next book is going to be out? I feel like I need to preorder it today ;)

message 6: by Amber
