I actually could not wait to read this book after finishing Storm Rising, I really wanted to see what Abi and Gideon’s lives were like now that they were reunited and how they were coping with their daughter, Natasha who they had only recently learned had not died at birth as Abi was lead to believe.
The story flicks between present day with Abi and Gideon trying to deal with the vengeful Simon and the past told in the form of diary entries that have been discovered by Arthur, Abi’s father after the death of her mother.
I can honestly say after enjoying Storm Rising that the author has excelled herself in Rhythm of Deceit. The storyline had me gripped throughout and as much as I enjoyed reading about the characters in the present I loved the diary entries which helps the readers as well as Abi and Natasha understand the very complex Joan.
Rhythm of Deceit is quite a steady paced read which certainly picked up momentum towards the end and had a few surprising twists that I really was not expecting. It was surprisingly edge of your seat reading in parts.
Apart from the devious ex drummer Simon, I really love all the characters in this story, everyone of them has just something about them that I found really appealing and likeable. Natasha I especially loved, for all that she has been through she is such an intelligent and level headed girl for her age and I love the bond that she and Abi have.
The NightHawk series is surprisingly addictive reading and a great read for young adults and adults alike.
Many thanks to the author for an Advanced Readers Copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Now I’ve got that out of the way onto the details. I must admit, and Rachael did warn me, I loved this book even more than the first – the relationship between Abi and Gideon grows and they really become a power-house of a couple and it left me feeling so warm inside. Simon becomes even more of an aggravating git but the evil side of him definitely adds a smidgen of drama and made me gallop through the book. Natasha is also utterly utterly wonderful which to a point I knew she would be – young yet gutsy and determined she adds an extra spark to the story. I found the backstory between Joan and Pauline incredibly heartwarming and I found myself feeling incredibly torn with my feelings during the first book. Hindsight is a wonderful thing and spending the first book cursing Abi’s parents I found myself torn. The author has really worked to make this tale a emotive and evocative tale.
The writing is exciting and moves with pace throughout and we get to experience each different story-line as it develops; the diary, the story between Gideon and Simon and the life of Abi and Natasha. They all intermingle throughout and the story really pulls it all together in a way that is so clever and found my gabbling to get to the end and find out the final conclusion. The writing is heady exciting and has a warmth to it overall. I write reviews where I want more from the characters but here it really is thrown at you.
I can’t really put into words why I liked this so much better but I think it’s that the relationships and the dangers are emphasised so much more and having been so excited about the first book watching everything develop I felt I had such a connection with the characters which doesn’t happen in all books. I honestly couldn’t put this down and I honestly cannot wait to see what happens next. Thumbs up – this book is pretty fantastic.

Rhythm of Deceit was more exciting for me than Storm Rising in that it featured a true “bad guy” out to hurt Abi and Gideon’s relationship in a vicious way. Besides a crazy stalker, Rhythm of Deceit has a former spy calling in favors to help the couple, a chase through the woods during a horrible thunderstorm, and people being trapped on Worm’s Head causeway island in Wales to make it even more exciting. For lovers of mystery, we learn more about the motives behind Abi’s mother’s actions twelve years earlier through a series of diaries discovered in an old suitcase, giving readers the element of going back in time to 1950 for part of the story. Rhythm of Deceit also has a lot about the music industry, with Gideon in the recording studio, meeting up with his friend and former bandmate Charles, visiting record company executives and tour managers, which was a little lacking in Storm Rising.
It’s difficult to write this review without revealing too much about Storm Rising, which I definitely recommend reading first, to really get the feeling for Gideon and Abi’s story. I am looking forward to Cobwebs in the Dark, which has already been set up when Natasha discovers there is more to learn about her grandmother’s past than what was in the suitcase. And, what was first being touted as a trilogy will now have a fourth book, that Rachael has just sent to her publisher. I also love all the cover art for the series, especially the font with those scrolly Rs!
