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.
When Gwen shows up at the Witches Council in Moon she is given no choice but to help the witches in their war against the Vampires. Ian continues to plague Gwen's mind and she would love to get rid of him. There is not many people she can trust while in Moon and she has to train with her newly learned about powers with an interesting new character.

I didn't find Moon to be super exciting but it was a neat place. The plot was smoothly written and fast paced and kept me interested. The book could have used an extra proof-reading pass through to get rid of some grammar and spelling errors but I still enjoyed the story despite them.

We meet a lot of new characters in DECEIVED. Holly was a piece of work and I am dying to see her go down. My fave would most definitely the hot piece of Grim Reaper man Dorian. He is a mysterious bad boy that I would not mind coming across. Aiden thoroughly ticked me off with his horrible decisions. I have to say I'm glad that Dorian came into the picture, I think he is a much better fit for her then Aiden and I can not wait until book 3 comes out so I can see what becomes of them. Bring on COVETED.

I gave it 3.5/5 stars
