Book Tour: Deceived by L.A. Starkey (Review+ Giveaway)

Title: Deceived by L.A. Starkey
(Soul Keeper Series #1)
Publication date: August 28th 2014
Genres: Paranormal, Young Adult

They say a soul is the immaterial essence, the animating principle, the actuating cause of an individual life.

But what if you had to share yours with the one person you hated the most?

The soul mate principle states that for every one soul there is another that will recognize its match, hence creating the perfect union.

But what if you had two soul mates, which would you choose?

What if your choices had eternal ramification?

Deceived, the debut novel in the Soul Keeper Series, is a modern day love story about the implications of having more than one soul mate, and having to choose between the two of them. The decisions of the gods has left the next generation, their heirs, torn between fate and reality, and the balance of the future hangs in anticipation of what’s to come.

Stunning.Wow, it's been a while since I read a book as good as this one. I liked it from the start, and it just got better and better. A new, twisted version of my favourite kind of greek mythology? That's Deceived. Wonderful, fabulous. I meant more than that. Deceived is a very, very twisted version of Greek Mythology, but with the principles of it. It's more modern day than normal. deceived is certainly twisted. it's so twisted to the point when it all seems so predictable, L.A. Starkey does the opposite of the expected. Surprise. You thought this might happen? Too bad. You're wrong. That kind of stuff. The ending was very simplistic, yet powerful. As I got through it, I wanted to read more and more. And wrong, I wasn't wrong. Deceived was fantastic! Such a good Greek Mythology tale... So, the characters, they were great. Deceived actually has a love triangle, but it's all twisted. And then there's love triangle two- with humans, that aren't supposed to be part of the big prophecy. I really loved Deceived. really, really. So many surprises, in a good way, sustaining, and definitely alluring. An amazing book, I'd definitely recommend reading.

Rating: 5+ stars
