Deceived by L.A. Starkey



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.

My Review: 

Deceived is very well written which immediately pulled me into the story. For example: “Crimson danced against the golden sky as the evening moved in quickly, hoping to make way for its dark lover” (7). During her dreams, Sam is caught in a love triangle with mysterious brothers Marcus and Nick, When she’s awake, she fights the feelings she has for Ken, the star basketball player at her school. In the beginning, Sam is a normal high school basketball player but as her dreams turn into nightmares, she realizes that her destiny is anything but normal; in fact, Sam is a key player in Greek mythology. Deceived ended with a huge cliffhanger and I’m looking forward to reading book two in the series.
