Review of Deceived by the Others by Jess Haines

Deceived By The Others (H&W Investigations #3)Deceived By The Others by Jess Haines

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Thanks to Jess Haines for another amazing addition to the world of the Others. I am so happy that I was able to receive Hunted by the Others (book one) for free on Kindle several months ago. I flew through that one and went straight in to book two, Taken by the Others. After finishing Taken I waiting (impatiently) for book three. I was not disappointed! I was able to finish this book in less than twelve hours.

Deceived by the Others finds Shiarra and Chaz taking a trip to the mountains. They're not alone though; the entire pack is joining them on this mini-vacation. Chaz wants Shiarra to see the pack in a more natural setting and not in the way she's seen them on previous occasions - fighting other werewolves and vamps. Unfortunately for Shiarra, she gets more than she bargained for.

This book did not contain a lot about Royce, the vampire that holds Shiarra's contract, but what is included will make fans of Shiarra's and Royce's friendship excited. There is potential here for these two that goes beyond a working relationship. Whether or not that actually happens though, we'll have to wait and see.

Shiarra's character continues to evolve as the story progresses. By the end she is faced with a frightening dilemma, and it will be interesting to see which direction the author takes in the next installment.

Once again, I find myself waiting impatiently for book four!
