I received Cloak of Deceit from Gwen Mitchell some time ago and it got lost in the review pile. This year, I aim to catch up on every review owed, regardless of how long it has been.
Alex Moore is a college senior and her whole life had been planned out. Until now.
Her boyfriend broke the rules of the vampire society when he created her and now she is not only a vampire, she is a psychic and has telekinetic powers. The voices inside her head are the hive, a group of psychics called Gregori. But she is more than that.
She is an impossibility. She is a Gregori, a sworn enemy of the Undead, even though she is one of the Undead also.
I went through the painful, horrifying transformation with her. I heard the voices calling. I ran with her, though it was only in our minds.
Whether she was a violation of the law or a walking bull’s eye, it didn’t matter. Either way she was in deep danger. They all want her dead.
There would be no escape. Without Julian, a Knight of the Cloak, a sexy Undead enforcer, she didn’t stand a chance. Would he stand beside her?
When she talked of drinking the blood and the thickness coating her throat, it almost made me gag.
Tomato juice + cow’s blood = newbie cocktail
I enjoyed this vampire romance novel. Gwen Mitchell did an excellent job with descriptions and details of the fights and emotions of the characters. I loved and hated them and what more can I ask for.
I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Cloak of Deceit by Gwen Mitchell.
One of the best series I've ever read.
By the looks of it, there is going to be a #6 and a good chance for a #7 =)
Best part, don't worry about gaps in between the books if you can't read them straight up. This one is so easy to remember. There is only a handful of characters and a simple universe where anything goes. If you manage to remember a (dead) Witch Council, 2.5 MCs (cause very prominent zombie dog for a pet) and 4 secondary characters, you are golden! Oh.... and Donald Drumpf Trump. He is a part of this book, and you just cannot forget THAT character, no matter how much you try.
yeah, now you know why I tagged this book "horror" and "humor" at the same time
PS I just want to mention: this series is urban fantasy at it's finest truest purest self. A major city, Indianapolis, to be precise, is housing all kind of magical creatures that human population is not aware of. A human detective along with his friends - a few humans with and without psy abilities and paranormal/magical creatures - battle the dark forces. It's not simply taking action in a city, it sticks to the tradition. An extra star just for that. And that makes it SIX
