Synopsis:

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.
We pick up with Gwen almost immediately after the end of "Craved".  Her life has been thrown into complete chaos, and isn't about to get any easier.  The council has decided to go to war with the Vampires and she is going to be their secret weapon - whether she likes it or not.

I loved this book - there are so many amazing elements jam packed into 160 some pages.   We meet several new characters, including Dorian and Kye and get to see some old faces - Fiona, Ethan and Holly; who we met previously in Craved.  Unfortunately I can't give away too many details as it might spoil the first book to those who haven't read the series!

Gwen is one of my favorite characters - she's spunky, independent and isn't afraid to stand up for herself.  Even if it might mean some BIG trouble.  She really just wants to be left alone and not be involved in the whole magical world - but she is one of the only Spirit Walkers that exists and they aren't going to let her forget it or leave her be.

For anyone who loves witches, vampires, romance and some mystery will love this book.  It will keep you on the edge of your seats and flipping the pages up until the very end!
