Without spoiling the plot, some parts of the characterizations are respectable. The people in the story act like unwise teenagers and make poor decisions often. There are a few plot twists. However, the book starts slowly. The middle was okay. The end, less dramatic than it needed to be. There were several places along the way where it seemed to me the author had some quality ideas, but she didn't communicate them through the story in such a way that the reader can always follow her thinking. Like when an important character was killed during a dramatic time in the book and it took just a few sentences to get rid of him. Could have been much more dramatic.
As a result, I just didn't find myself caring about some of the characters as much as I probably should have.
Similar to Twilight, but different enough to make the story its own, Summers’ Deceit is full of action and interesting folk lore. I enjoyed the writing—the author captured the teen voice extremely well and I liked her descriptions, since I’ve never been to either CA or OR, it really helped place me there. I also liked the friendship between Jane and Becky, two girls who couldn’t be more different. It reminded me of some of my own friendships, with women who are very different, and yet we care deeply for each other. I loved the Christmas scene when Becky was excited over every little thing when she finally gets to see what a normal Christmas is like.
Summers’ Deceit hit the mark for the YA market, I would highly recommend to teens, as it’s pretty tame as far as no overt sex and very few curse words, but there is a bit of violence and murder. My favorite line: “Telling me it isn’t like that when I didn’t say it was ‘like’ anything means it’s totally like that.”
Jane is a socially anxious high schooler who moves to her father's home in Oregon to get away from a tragic family event. In Oregon, she is reunited with some childhood friends and meets the mysterious and attractive Aiden whom she falls in an uncertain love with. There is plenty of romantic tension between them and it seems a couple other boys may be jealous, adding to the tension.
The writing style is fun and easy to read, letting the reader discover and unravel past and current events and get to know the motivations of the main characters. There is plenty of romantic interest, action, and intrigue to engage the reader and leave them wanting more. The book will appeal to anyone wanting to read young adult romance and action horror/fantasy.
I look forward to the next book of the trilogy!
