Picking up where book 2 leaves off, we find the Pure One Amenirdis free from Limbo and readying to wreak havoc on the modern world, our Ramanga heroine Anastasia, an unwilling tool in the pure Deamhan's master plan. Our hero (or my hero at any rate), the Lamia Deamhan Remy is desperate to rescue the human researcher Veronica from the clutches of The Brotherhood and one of the organization's new leaders Kenneth Dearhorn. The human has already proven that he cannot be trusted and Remy fears for the safety of his new love Veronica. Remy seeks information and financial assistance from his vampire friend Lambert, the owner and manager of the club Dark Sepulcher. Once a haven for vampire and Deamhan alike, the massacre of the Deamhan population during Lucius's bid to free Amenirdis from Limbo and the influx of vampires from the dreaded Dorvo coven has upset the uneasy balance that once existed. To make matters worse, Nathan, former researcher and owner of Blind Bluff Manor, the sanctuary where Anastasia, Remy and the young Metusba Deamhan Hailey reside, is suffering from an unknown ailment and his health is fading fast. In complete disagreement on how best to help their friend, yet another wedge has formed between our paranormal protagonists As our heroes struggle with their own personal "demons", enemies old and new gather in force to further their own personal agendas and uneasy alliances are formed in order to achieve a common goal. But, in the end, no one can be trusted.
Full of action and suspense, introspection and intrigue, Deception and the entire Deamhan Chronicles series is a must read for any diehard paranormal fan. Several twists and turns will have you gasping out loud and indeed one particular scene about one-third of the way through the book utterly floored me! Several new characters with secrets of their own are introduced here and I cannot wait to see what will happen next! I cannot wait for more from this series!
So, why four stars? As I'd mentioned in previous reviews, there are a few inconsistencies in the storyline that plague an otherwise phenomenal series. One example: In the very first paragraphs of book one, Brotherhood researcher Caroline Austin is wounded and near death as she comes face to face with the Lugat Deamhan Lucius. "She had never been this close to him. She always believed she never would." The paragraphs go on to inform the reader that Caroline's research of the Deamhan leader had led not only to the destruction of old myths about him but had also led her to develop feelings for him. Yet, here in Deception as researcher Kenneth Dearhorn reads Caroline's journal entries from the time prior to her "death" , the passages tell of the personal interview that she'd conducted with Lucius at his sanctuary and of several more instances where they'd met in secret? Another scene near the end of book one when Lucius is sharing his memories of Caroline with her daughter Veronica, Veronica can see in his mind how he had watched her mother from a distance while she had conducted her research on him. Yet Veronica breaks their psychic connection when she witnesses Lucius siring her mother before he is attacked by The Brotherhood and his offspring Kei. "Kei stood over her, glancing at Lucius’ new creation. His hair was much longer then. He mocked his sire and he leaned over Veronica’s mother and gently placed his mouth over her own." This is yet another inconsistency as Kei is a Lugat Deamhan and as such does not feed or kill in this manner. It is the Lamia that use their mouths to feed. In Deception, Remy witnesses this same memory through the thoughts of Veronica's father yet he too pulls his thoughts away from the scene before he actually witnesses the demise of Caroline Austin. I do have my suspicions about this but we will just have to see how the rest of the series plays out. I also hope to learn what became of Veronica's friend Sean from the first book, another researcher that fell out of grace with The Brotherhood.
Despite these inconsistencies, I do love this series and these characters and I am anxiously awaiting the next story!
You really must read this book. Do start from book one, Deamhan, so you can get to know all the characters. ;) YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED! I PROMISE!
