REVIEW: Deception So Deady by Clara Kensie @clarakensie @snowywingspub

Deception So Deadly
by Clara Kensie
Snowy Wings Publishing


Goodreads Synopsis:

RUN. It’s all sixteen-year-old Tessa Carson has ever known. Hunted by a telepathic killer, Tessa and her family have fled home after home, hiding behind aliases to survive. Her scars are more than just physical, and as the only one in her family without a psychic ability, she lives a life of secrets, lies, and fear. 

After the Carsons flee to a new hideout and take on new identities yet again, Tessa meets confident, carefree Tristan Walker. Their attraction burns fierce, but she runs from him too, knowing their love can never be true when she can’t even tell him her real name.

But Tristan has secrets as well—secrets that will either save Tessa, or destroy her. The only way Tessa can save her family—and uncover the real reason they’ve been hunted all these years—is to forget everything she’s learned from a lifetime of running away, and run straight into danger head-on.

Book One in the YA paranormal thriller Deception So series, Deception So Deadly was originally published as the Run to Youserial parts 1 – 3, and is the winner of the prestigious RITA® Award for Best First Book.

My Review:

Your whole family but you is psychic and you're being chased after by a telepathic killer. You've moved countless times to avoid being caught when you meet Tristan, your first friend in years. There are rules to follow: no screaming, answer the phone on the first ring and leave nothing personal behind. Your family's powers help to avoid detection and stop those who put you in harms way while you feel inept because you are neutral (no powers). Tristan turns out to have secrets of his own and now you, Tessa, must run straight into danger to try and save not only yourself, but your family too. 

Ah! I was so lucky to have a slow day at work and power through this story in one sitting. Action packed from the first page on, this is a YA paranormal thriller you do not want to miss. I'm happy to say this is only book one in a series and I look forward to reading the forthcoming books. Tessa is such a likable character and I felt for her throughout my entire read. No love triangles here thank goodness! Maybe a little bit of instalove, but hey, don't we all have those in high school. *swoon* While I figured out a couple twists, I didn't see one thing coming and was happily surprised. Take a chance on this one, folks.

Thank you so much to Clara Kensie for this copy in return for my honest review!
