Deception by Stacy Claflin Book Summary
A blind date, a gorgeous vampire, and a deadly assassin.
Just a typical Friday night.
Yesterday, my biggest problems were fighting with my sister and getting into my dream college. Today, I'm dealing with destructive new powers and a raging thirst for blood—and both are getting me into serious trouble.
I never believed in the supernatural, but now I can't escape it. I've tried everything to distract myself from the bundle of weird events that is ruining my life, including a blind date with a drop-dead gorgeous guy. Turns out he's a vampire and knows more about my past than I do, including the assassin who has marked me for death.
I thought becoming a blood-sucking child of the night would make me immortal… turns out it just made me a target. With a trained killer after me, I might actually have to trust the know-it-all vampire to help me unlock my powers, before one of us ends up permanently dead.

Deception (Stacy Claflin) Book Reviews
Distracting in a bad wayThis book has a very interesting, if fairly predictable, plot line. The ideas and plot were very interesting and unique outside of that predictability, which is what kept me reading. However, the editing of this story is just terrible. I definitely won't be reading any further books in this series as it's just too hard to really get immersed in the unique story, no matter how badly I wanted to. This book had many spelling and grammatical errors throughout the book, but what was most painful and distracting was the fact that nothing was really fleshed out in the story itself. The story jumped from one major scene to another without much detail, let alone any real transition, which left me distracted while wondering how and why the story had suddenly gotten to where it was. It had little to no detail, and was mostly structured with short sentences that made everything seem abrupt and blunt. I wanted more information, more fluidity, and both were severely lacking on top of the constant mistakes..MythicnightScore: 2/5
Don't tell...Obviously the best thing to do in any new situation is to remain uninformed. I'm getting tired of authors who use this gimmick to build their plot, add suspense, and pad out their stories way beyond what is reasonable. Mysteries are one thing, but this is simply the characters finding one excuse after another not to tell each other necessary data, or not demanding it from the other. Nine more books of this.. oh joy.John FrostedScore: 2/5

Love itShe has done it! I love it and I only read this one but I'm ready to buy the whole series like now. It is a long series but I like the fact that it's not only three or four books and that's it. I want to grow with the characters. Great book.WavealeeScore: 5/5
More original then I expectedSo this book is one of this authors early books, to my understanding, but it definitely did not seem like it. The characters were relatable, without reaching too much, the fantasy elements were on point, without being too cliche, and the romance had enough plot twists to make the story believable, and unpredictable. Definitely would recommend this book to fans of YA paranormal romance, and I myself will be checking out other books by this author..Pretty good game_Score: 4/5
LOVEDI absolutely loved this book! I recently read all the books from her curse of the moon series & fell in love with the writings of Stacy Claflin ❤️ she has officially became one of my favorite authors. My ONLY complaint would be that there are some grammar mistakes in the book but it doesn’t take away from the story at all & you can easily tell what was meant! I can not wait to start the next one!!.JaradaleeScore: 5/5

SighI wish I’d seen more of the negative reviews before downloading but the positive ones along with “best selling author” impressed me, but what I’ve read of this book has not. Mostly dialogue with little description or feeling. Very poor transition from one scene to the next. The plot is slow to develop, which isn’t always a bad thing, but when there is no character development either then there is nothing to entice the reader to keep going..SparklingsundropScore: 1/5

DeceptionBefore I read this book I had read all the reviews to find most of them positive. So you can imagine the disappoint I felt when I started to read. I couldn't even get through the first chapter without feeling bored. Many of the lines include mistakes or spelling/grammar errors. Which is not entirely a big deal, but the part I was most annoyed about was the wording. Instead of being descriptive or expressive, the author uses common and boring phrases such as "I screamed. I stood next to my parents. I rolled my eyes." Instead of this, the author could have used something more descriptive such as "A piercing scream escaped my throat, eyes wide, I began to retreat backwards." See the description is less blunt and more emotional. Not boring and repetitive. Glad I could offer some constructive criticism..Hylian.UniverseScore: 2/5
OkWas expecting more. This was written in passive voice. Lacked active voice. Felt like I was reading the diary of a teenage girl retelling events not actively living it. For the hype, I was disappointed. It's just ok..7301830572999Score: 2/5

Good plotThe plot was enough for me to want to finish the book, unfortunately I found myself editing the authors wording (not grammar). I felt like I was reading a rough draft, or a high school English assignment. The relationships weren’t convincing, and words like “very” were so overused I found myself rereading sentences edited with synonyms, or rewriting entire paragraphs..Jcj26Score: 1/5

Hard to get intoI wasn’t able to get past the first chapter. The sentences are short and choppy, the characters don’t have descriptions or personality. The dialog between characters feels like a middle schooler wrote it. I really really really wanted to love this book but I just can’t. The cover is beautiful though..Courtney2625Score: 2/5
EhFirst of, I hated the spacing of the Ebook, and there were several pages that were blank as I was in mid-read. And I skipped through several pages that seemed unnecessary to read. I didn’t agree with how the story led up to the “big event”, and there were just a lot of loose ends that weren’t tied..CindywhovilleScore: 2/5

My thoughtsOkay so I’m my opinion, I would not recommend this to a reader. Coming from a younger author that is just starting I do feel like I know a couple things to help with this book. First of all I wished the book had a theme or an undeniable drive for Alexis and the rest of the characters. I mean there was a beginning, middle, and end, but Alexis had no personal problem with really anything. She had no growth to her as a character which is especially important to have in a story like this because SPOILER: she turns into a creature of a sort that requires needed development. I won’t get into everything but not my personal favorite.Podcast_binger267894Score: 1/5

Poorly writtenTrying to get past my initial irritation, hoping that with time the story would get better, I was summarily disappointed. The storyline is too much like many others, a hidden and confused teenager/immortal princess with a prophecy and birthmark declaring her the only one that can save her kingdom that she never even knew about... Blah blah blah - hot guy - blah blah blah - destiny - blah blah blah - magic powers - blah blah blah - political plot to kill her - blah blah blah - teenage angst.Alexi198825Score: 1/5

If you want simple - this is itThe general plot of this book is good but I'd find it much more enjoyable if the author knew how to vary their writing. Conversations between the characters are boring and flat, it's just a load of 'he said' 'she said' 'he replied'. When reading it I always feel like the author is trying to rush each chapter. It's okay if you want to read a book because you're REALLY bored, but if you want to actually feel pulled into the story, then maybe read a different book..MagictortasScore: 2/5
