Deceived (Soul Keeper, #1)Deceived by L.A. Starkey

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

ARC kindly provided by Patchwork Press via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.


This book captured me from the very beginning. When I first started reading, I expected some kind of love triangle drama – but no…it’s more than that. Deceived spins a tale about the victims of fate and destiny, as well as deceit, power and love. It spins and spirals in and out sung multiple perspectives as well as dreams which the main character has to create a canvas on which everything is stitched. What I loved about this book is the inclusion of Prometheus, Greek father of mankind. You also get to hear more about the three Fates or the Moirai. It is a great romance read, but could leave room for some improvement. For example, their were a couple of spelling mistakes and the book was just a whole introduction to the story with only the last quarter of the book with real action and progress, but I guess the whole introduction is what made it so compelling. But over all this book deserved the 4 star I have it and their is always room for improvement as this book is a series. May I mention that I absolutely want to finish this series? If I were given any more arc for this series I would devour them. Congratulations to L. A. Starkey for publishing a compelling read!

Rating Plan
1 star : Strongly did not like the book, writing and plot was bad. Idea of the book was against my liking.
2 star : Didn’t like it, didn’t find it interesting or gripping. Seemed to drag on to me.
3 star : An average book. Wasn’t bad or good. Everything else was well done. Original idea.
4 star : Like a 3 star but has potential to it as a series or the book grew on me as it progressed and certain scenes captured me. I Enjoyed it and read it in one sitting.
5 star : I LOVED IT! I stayed up late until 3 am. Author is a genius, characters, plot, idea, development, EVERYTHING was EXCELLENT. Nothing else can possibly be said except that its 5 STAR!
