Heven used to be popular, a cheerleader, beautiful ... all that was Before. Then she was attacked and left with scars on her face - now she hides herself behind her hair, inside hoodies, under baggy clothes. She tries not to be noticed. Then he comes to school - Sam. Tall, muscular, gorgeous - and he wants to be with her. But he holds mysteries - has he told her the truth about who he is? Can she live with that truth when it comes out?

"Masquerade" is Cambria Hebert's first published novel, although she's had a couple short stories released recently as well: "Whiteout" and "Before," which is the prequel to "Masquerade." This may be her first published novel, but it is obvious she has been honing her skills for a good while - the plot flows smoothly, the characters are well developed, the twists and turns come without warning. All in all it is a great story and one that fans of paranormal books should all love. If you haven't yet experienced the "Masquerade," you need to do so ... now.

What intrigued me was the idea of the book exploring the main character dealing with the aftermath of an accident that leaves her face marred by a scar, and all that that meant for her self image and how people saw her.

And for the first two thirds of the book that seemed to be what the story was trying to do.

Then the author suddenly says "just kidding!" and does a 180 degree turn.

Not only was Heven apparently wrong about all her former friends treating her like dirt (they were apparently just giving her space), but they only friend that stuck with her and supported her as best she could through her trials suddenly turns out to have been a jealous and selfish bitch from the very beginning.
Then her loving mother goes off the deep end and declares that Heven getting the scar proves that she is evil.

The last straw for me was the scar miraculously vanishes without a trace - apparently through an act of God that is supposed to show her mother the error of her ways - at which point I put the book down in disgust not even bothering to finish reading the last few pages.

First of all i want to thank the mods on PNR & UF Fanatics who gave me this book as part of the R2R event.

I need to point out that I've read "Before" the prequel to "Masquerade" and I fell in love with the story from the start.
It's a short story about Sam and some events that occur on Heven's life.

The story line it's so well developed that even though it's just a couple of pages you understand perfectly everything that's happening and at the same time gives you an extra pull to read masquerade.

Is one of the best prequels I've read.

The story centers around Hev a really beautiful girl both on the inside and out, that has the perfect life: lots of great friends, good grades a loving family, did I mention already that she is also cheerleader squad captain? No? Well there you go, she is no average Barbie she is super smart loving and caring; and one day her life fell apart.

She hides from herself and from the world and lives an empty life for a few months and then Sam appears.

I just loved Sam character he's strong willed and has a heart of gold, I loved the way the author plays with the concept of good an evil inside him; he isn't the typical knight in shining armor that can't do a thing wrong.

This book has strong content and really gory details about murders that take place alongside the story, I was shocked cause even though it really is very detailed (my stomach can't take it) it fits perfectly and it gave me a really good insight of the twisted mind of the villain of Masquerade.

This is a book that I wanted to like but unfortunately it felt monotonous and boring and christian. The story just did not draw me in. I didn't understand some of the "characters" in the book. I truly thought this was a christian read book and I kept double checking the book description and reviews and could not figure it out. It was very confusing and I had no idea what I was reading about until the last couple of chapters. Even after reading the book still unsure who some of the characters are... It kept changing characters every chapter.."the Hope", ok who??? then "Heven" main character,...then "Sam" next main character...then " the Hate" again who?? This book was way out there for me...more christian read then anything paranormal to me...But I am over 40 and just saying this is MY opinion and I did not like it.

Romance-adventure stories between an almost normal human and a paranormal creature are not unusual nowadays. Even still, Masquerade added a twist to the tale. We're first introduced to the two main characters, Sam and Heven, in the short story `Before'. Masquerade is what happens after, when Heven's happy existence is shattered and her face bears the scars as proof. She retreats from her old life and keeps to herself, believing that no one wants to be around someone so scarred, especially someone as stunning and unusual as Sam, the new kid at school. And while Heven finds it hard to believe that Sam might be interested in her, she finds it a lot harder to believe the truth about who Sam really is.

What I loved about this: Heven goes through major changes, all of which are realistic responses to what happens around her. From her fear of being stared at to overcoming fear of something much darker, she grows into someone I can respect. Sam has his own fears and insecurities, and that was refreshing in a male character.

What I didn't like: The book could use another round of editing; this is one thing that made me hesitate between 3.5 and 4 star rating. The other aspect (which is more about personal preference) is the proportion of romance compared to the drama, adventure and thrills. I'd prefer to see more of a balance (cut down on some of the romance scenes). But overall, despite the need for editing and my preferences, this is a fun read. Plus I wouldn't be planning on buying the sequel for a novel that is less than a 4 star novel - and I am planning on buying it!
