Paranormal Romance Early Review: Deception by D.B. Reynolds

Deception by D.B. Reynolds (Vampires in America #9)

Egalley thanks to ImaJinn Books, Inc.

Synopsis from Goodreads
Kauai, Hawaii—tropical paradise, vibrant jungle, turquoise sea... and sensuous nights that hide vampires so powerful they can change the world.

Raphael—powerful, extraordinary, arrogant. He’s been eliminating rivals and gathering allies, determined not just to survive, but to demolish the Europeans who think they can steal what he’s worked for centuries to create. In a final bid to avert a war that seems inevitable, Raphael agrees to meet an enemy he knows of old. She is formidable, wily, and not to be trusted. But in his arrogance, Raphael believes he can foil whatever treachery she has brewing.

Cynthia Leighton—Raphael’s human mate, beautiful, smart, and deadly when threatened. She doesn’t trust anyone, much less a powerful vampire claiming to want peace. So while Raphael prepares to negotiate a treaty, Cyn is preparing for the inevitable double-cross that she knows is coming. Raphael worries about saving thousands of vampire lives. She only cares about one, and she will do anything to keep him alive and in her arms.

When Cyn is proven right, when it all falls apart and Raphael’s enemies draw on ancient magic to trap him, taking him away from Cyn and out of the war, it all falls to her—to find Raphael, to save the thousands of vampires who will die if she doesn’t succeed... and to kill every single being, human or vampire, who gets in her way.

Release date:  March 31, 2015.

I think Donna  has outdone herself this time! I haven't experienced such sense of urgency, such rush of adrenaline in a long while.

D.B.'s books have always been action-driven , and it's no secret that Raphael and Cyn have remained everyone's favourite couple since the beginning of this series. So I was absolutely ecstatic when I found out there was another full book about them.

Raphael finally has to confront European vampires, and for that he needs to travel to Hawaii. Of course Cyn is worried  about a possible trap, treachery and direct confrontation, so she makes her own contingency plans for such a situation.

And it does happen. Something really bad. So bad that Cyn and her team of loyal Raphael's supporters have to race against time to save her mate.

It was lovely to see Cyn do what she does best: investigate and kick ass. All Raphael's alliances and friendships really pulled through in a time of need; and we even see a cameo appearance from one of his closest friends. Also when  Raphael is pissed off, he is magnificent! I'm just saying. And I loved Lucas in here, he was an absolute darling.

 There is a surprising twist in the end which made me question if the series will go in a different direction after this book, but in any case I can't wait too find out what is going to happen next!

 Overall, this is a fantastic urban fantasy/paranormal romance; pure emotion & drive, really good character growth and D.B.'s signature kick ass female heroines.

Я думаю, что Донна сама себя переиграла и создала одну из лучших книг в этой серии. Я уже давно не испытывала такого напряжения и прилива адреналина как при прочтении этой книги.

Романы Д.Б. всегда полны экшн, и не секрет, что Рафаэль и Син  остаются любимой читателем парой персонажей. Так что я была в полном восторге когда узнала, что эта книга будет исключительно о них.

 Рафаэль наконец-то вынужден пойти на встречу, организованную европейскими вампирами, которая должна произойти на Гавайях. Естественно, Син встревожена и ожидает предательства и ловушки, поэтому она готовит свои собственные планы в случае ЧП.

И она права. Что-то происходит. Что-то катастрофическое. И теперь друзьям и союзникам Рафаэля предстоит сплотиться и вместе с Син сделать всё возможное, чтобы добраться до него до того, как его время истечёт.

Син делает в этой книге то, что она делает лучше всего: проводит молниеносное расследование и беспощадно разделывается со своими врагами. Читателю также подарены камео-визиты хорошо знакомых нам персонажей из предыдущих книг серии, особенно милашки Люкаса. А Рафаэль просто прекрасен в гневе и воздает своим врагам по заслугам!

 Неожиданный под конец поворот сюжета заставил меня задаться вопросом в каком направлении эта серия пойдёт дальше, но в любом случае я с огромным нетерпением буду ждать книги следующей! Готовьтесь к фантастическому паранормальному роману с элементами городского фэнтэзи, эмоциям и драйву, хорошему развитию персонажей и крутой героине. Читайте!

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
