The vampire drug, brew, nearly ruined Gwen Sparks’ life. Just when things started to get back to normal between her and Aiden, she is summoned by the North American Witches Council to their central city of Moon. A war is imminent between vampires and witches, and Gwen’s experiences with brew are being used to fuel the fire. She is about to discover just how powerful she is with the help of the ruggedly handsome Angel of Death and just how far some people will go to get what they want. Gwen is going to learn exactly what it means to be Deceived.
Deceived is a continuation of the first book (Craved) in the Gwen Sparks series. While this one picks up right where it left off, I’d like to mention that enough information is given throughout the book that you could pick this one up by itself. But if you have the opportunity to read both, you’ll be pleased.
Gwen is at Moon, not by choice of course. After the cases were closed on the witches death, Ian roaming free, and the Vampire Council (VC) not doing a darn thing about it, the Witches are looking to declare war. A deadly war upon the vampires, and their secret weapon is none other than Gwen Sparks!
But even Gwen is unsure of her abilities. Should she embrace the spirit walker side? Can she go back to just being the simple spell casting Gwen? After all when spirit walkers fail to believe in themselves they often go madly insane, so crazy, they can never lead normal lives. That is of course if they even survive.
Ah but then there is still Aiden. The lovely vampire that Gwen fought so hard against, the very same man who stole away her heart in heat of passion, and the very guy who became addicted to “brew”, the blood of witches. Has he really beaten his addiction? How did the vampires ever discover the secret “high” found within the blood of witches?
Conspiracies, suspense, lust, raw emotion, and page turning questions will keep you going as you follow Gwen on her journey. Watch as she truly learns to trust in herself, the gifts she has been given, and most of all embraces her magic once and for all. Don’t miss a beat, and get yourself hooked on this series.
