I’m a big fan of mystery and thriller novels. So when I received this book for review I was really excited. It is a book that you will think about even after you finish reading it. The story lingers in your thoughts!
How well do you know your loved ones?
A girl struggling to cope with the murders of her mother and five-year-old brother.
A journalist chasing the ghost of a potential serial killer.
A thirteen-year-old girl who slaughtered her parents.
And a revenge-driven psychopath who is about to destroy everyone’s life.
After 9 years, a young writer is still coping with the brutal murders of her mother and five-year-old brother, as she moves into a house of horrors, to start a new life with her lover. Will friends and family be able to redeem Ally out of the impending doom in time? Will her infallible love become the key to the destruction of her already fragile world? Will madness prevail over love; true love over revenge?
Deceived is a gripping psychological thriller that mazes through the deepest, darkest emotions of human mind through the story of a vulnerable girl who treads in the mist of deception bred from a long unforgiven betrayal.
My review –
The protagonist is Allison, whose mother was murdered when she was a teenager. Slowly with time she was able to recuperate and make peace with her loss.
An amazing relationship in the book is Allison and her dog Max. Max is her true companion and one really responsible to keep her happy and keep her away from her grief.
I don’t want to talk more than this about the story and the plot. I had to reschedule stuff to ensure that I have time to complete this book in one sitting. This is such a page turner that you will not be able to keep it down at all! It is extremely unpredictable and will keep you guess all the time.
I loved the way the book starts, it gives a complete definition of a psychopath and sociopath.
The characters of this book are very beautifully crafted. All the characters have a hit of grey, which adds to the excitement during the entire time. The shades of grey even carries on to the small town where the story is set. The only character I did not like was that of Steve. I think his description was over the top and also his character did not come across as experienced in his field.
I totally loved this book and had great fun after a long time. This was very fresh and different and I think debut author Heena has done a stupendous job. I will rate this book a full 5/5. I would recommend it to all!
