I never wanted to get in this deep, but I did go looking for the truth before I was prepared to handle it. But how do you close the lid on Pandora’s box? You can’t unlearn something, or forget a dark secret once it’s been revealed.

I have no choice but to do my part to bury the truth again -- this time, someplace no one will ever be able to find it. But that’s the pr

I started this book straight after I finished The Tower and even though I finished it yesterday it was too late to write this review. After the cruel cliff hanger I was left on in the second book I bought this book straight away and once again I wasn't able to put the series down. I love the detail Jade Varden writes in, the family history has obviously been thought about a lot and it is easy to follow. I'm not going to s

A house built upon lies will crumble and fall at the sign of wind. A good lie deserves another one and then another. When your life is based on lies is only matter of time before somehow the truth comes up. All those lines could summarize a story that keeps getting better and better. A story about who we really, about justice and freedom, the life of a girl that is more than a mystery series, with amazing ingredients such as power, money and love.

Rain is doing everything in her power to set free

The Tower, Book 2 in Jade Varden's Deck of Lies series left us with a real cliff-hanger, so what did the third book Death deliver?

Death is a great third addition to this series of books, after the flood of revelations and lies that came out in The Tower, which got to the point of being near overwhelming, Death has a more mellow pace - it's like that period of disquiet (I certainly can't call it calm) that comes after a storm...or perhaps that odd come down you feel after a major adrenaline rush

WOW!

Okay, because the killer was revealed within the first few pages, I thought there wouldn’t be much of a storyline to this book after that, since the big secret had been given away. BUT OH NO! The revelation of the killer doesn’t bring a sense of resolution but opens even more doors to more questions as another twist had been unleashed.
I think Rain actually matured in this book. She thought more about things in this book rather than jumping to conclusions as she did previously. She became mor

Review originally posted at arielavalon.com

Rain has figured out who really killed Laurel, but this is only the beginning. She very quickly finds that the Von Shelton's own her, and when they want secrets to hide, they stay hidden. Rain has a plan, she will see to it that River will not ever see trial, no matter what.

I cannot tell a lie. I thought this series was a trilogy and now I am horribly disappointed because I blew through this book in the small span of a morning and now I get to play the

“Death” by Jade Varden is the third in the Deck of Lies series and after I reviewed the first two I had to continue to find out what happens next. The storyline moves so fast and there are so many turns and twists that I sometimes felt in a soap opera but somehow it never felt as cheap and easy as that word would suggest. Far from it.
Since the first book the main character struggles with finding out her real identity and with a murder case that involves her family and friends, several possible l

I have to say when I was given this book I was really excited. Seeing as I have read all the others before I wanted so bad to know who murder Laurel. And now I know, the only problem with knowing is that it isn't going according to plan. The culprit should be in jail and seeing the face of death themselves. Instead someone innocent is in jail and I don't know if she'll ever get out or be happy.

After all a girl whose whole life has been turned topsy turvy in such a short time deserves to be happ

Death is the third book of the Deck of Lies series so I will try to not have spoilers in this review. Everything gets more complicated in this book. I was hooked on to it and the story gets super better. More twists and revelations will come right at your face, and by the time you think you’re going to bed, you’ll be tempted to read one more page, then the next, and the next, until you finish the whole book. Like the rest of the books, the summary do

This is book 3 in the ‘Deck of Lies’ series, and kicks off where book 2 ‘The Tower’ left off. **Warning, some unavoidable spoilers for books 1 and 2 **
Rain has just worked out who killed Laurel Riordan (view spoiler) and she’s about to confront them. What she doesn’t though is that the lies are nowhere near over. Although she may think she knows who killed Laurel, she has no idea just how many people are involved

Wow! So, I know its hard to believe, especially considering all the lies uncovered and truths revealed in the first two books, but there was even more in this one. And I was SO right to hold onto my love for River!!
Thankfully, there was a lot more of him in this one! YAY!

Anyways, Rain (aka Chloe, aka Glory) is now getting ready to face change, severe change. She is trying to find a way to get River out of jail and prove his innocence. Well… he does get it, but then she goes in.

In a way, I really

Rain finds out even more secrets about her family, and it's incredible to read how many secrets and lies there really are within one family. It makes you wonder how many secrets your own family is hiding from you, and if you found out one, would it lead you to find out all of them. River, Rain's friend who was accused of murdering Laurel, is now out of jail on Rain's behalf. It sounds like a good thing until Rain is now the suspect in the murder case, to cover up Carysn's doing.

I loved the rela

The third in a series of YA reads that kept me reading from book to book. Chloe/Rain is still learning more about her family in this book, I couldn't even fathom that there was more to learn about this quirky von Shelton family, but there was and probably is!
