Betrayal: a book recommendation
Yesterday, the sequel to the amazing YA paranormal Deception by Lee Nichols came out. It’s called Betrayal, and somehow it manages to be even more awesome and fast paced than the first book!
The summary from Goodreads sums up the story rather nicely (oh yay for flap copy editors!):
Emma Vaile is the most powerful ghostkeeper in centuries. Which is great when she’s battling the wraith-master Neos, but terrible when she’s flirting with fellow ghostkeeper (and soul mate) Bennett. When ghostkeepers fall in love, the weaker one loses all power, and that’s not something Bennett can handle. Heartbroken and alone, Emma tries to lose herself in school with fellow ghostkeeper, Natalie.
When a new team of ghostkeepers arrive—one a snarky teen boy, the other a British scholar—Emma finds solace in training for the battle against Neos. But as the team grows stronger, they are threatened by an unknown force. One they thought was good. As chilling and page-turning as Deception, this sequel will grab readers and hold them to the last page. No one is safe from suspicion as Emma closes in on the traitor.
Yes, I read it overnight. Yes, I gave my sisters books 1 and 2, and she read them both overnight. Now you should do the same because the Haunting Emma Series is WONDERFUL. And zomigosh, I have one word (or name, rather) for you:
Oh wait, I have two more words for you.
You tell me: Have you read Deception? Do you think you’ll pick up Betrayal?

Yay! I was looking for something to curl up with this weekend. I’m not sure how I missed your recommendation of Deception the first time round, but I am definitely going to get these for my Kindle right now!

Ooooh, this sounds good! Right up my alley. I haven’t read deception yet, but I just put it on my list. And not a hypothetical, pretend list, but THE actual list of “TBR books” I keep in my phone. 🙂

That’s SO AWESOME you have a list on your phone. I have a list in my dayplanner, but…I’m not very good at keeping it up to date. I’m not very good at using my dayplanner in general since I never seem to have it on me when I need it… :-/
Let me know if you like the books!

WOW- that was quick! Reading something in 24 hours is a pretty solid rec in itself. Will have to check these out!

Yes, do! I love them as much as Rachel Hawkins’s HEX HALL books — similar fun-but-dark stories, sarcastic-but-sweet heroines. LOVE THEM! Must go read DEMON GLASS (HEX HALL Book 2) now, actually…;)
