Overview

Deception was only the beginning...
Now she faces Betrayal.
Alexis Ferguson wants what anyone wants: to be in control of her life. That's difficult because a series of ancient, unbreakable prophecies now dictate much of her life. As she learns to accept her roles, she finds herself enjoying the new powers - so much that it goes to her head at times, even pushing away those she cares about most.


Eager to find a way around the prophecies, she digs deeper. Alexis finds more secrets, including one involving her and a deadly curse. The curse puts her relationship with her boyfriend on the line...and she can't even tell him about it. By trying to protect him, she runs the risk of losing him forever.

(Please note: this is the second book in the series. If you haven't read Deception, I highly suggest reading that first! It's on sale too.)

Betrayal by Stacy Claflin is the second book in the Transformed series. I actually liked it better than the first book. Maybe that was because I already knew all the characters and back story. Of course she had to include a lot of information about the back story in this book so those folks who hadn’t read the first book wouldn’t be totally lost.

Betrayal by Stacy Claflin is a Contemporary Young Adult Paranormal Romance. While I both read and write paranormal romances, I don’t typically choose YA novels for my own reading pleasure. I have been known to read them on occasion because I still screen my daughter’s reading choices. I read Claflin’s first book, Deception, because I thought it was something my daughter would enjoy. Betrayal is book two in The Transformed series, and I read it of my own volition because the storyline is captivating and the characters are compelling. If you like teen romances and paranormal thrillers, you’ll love Betrayal. Betrayal begins where Deception left off. The novel is a self-contained story, but it really would be beneficial if you read part one first. Alexis has been reunited with her family, she has come fully into her powers, and she has learned more about the world she was born into. She goes back to school knowing it won’t be long until she is reunited with her birth parents and can resume the life she was destined to lead as the Sonnast. But she learns that enemies of her parents (who happen to be her parents’ advisors and not coincidentally the parents of her fiancé) are conspiring to wage war against them, and a new teacher at school with an unnatural interest in her seems to be involved in the plot. Complicating matters, vying for her affections is an old boyfriend who is also eligible to marry her and rule at her side. Before matters grow unmanageable, her parents call her away to be with them. They introduce a third party into the mix, turning her complicated love triangle into a convoluted square. She is both attracted to him and repulsed by his vile nature. Her emotions are a tangled mess, and her mind is trying to make a decision that will avoid a war. She ultimately takes action, thinking she will seal her fate, and that of her people. All these actions lead to a surprise ending, setting up an exciting beginning for book three. Here is a truncated excerpt from Betrayal: Cliff looked at me as though I had betrayed him. If he thought that was bad, I dreaded his reaction to the news that was yet to come… I was afraid to look at Cliff, but knew that I had to. He looked furious. I'd never seen him so angry. Not even after I told him that I'd kissed Tanner. I thought he might hurt someone. He glared at me.  Did you know about the true meaning of the Sonnast? I gulped. I found out when I was in Europe. Like I said, I only want you… In The Transformed Series, Claflin created a world in Deception that has expanded in Betrayal. The characters are growing and maturing, and in addition to that, we are being introduced to not only new characters but new species of characters. We are being taken out of the main character's hometown and exploring other areas of the world, all of which are in this realm, but some of which are magical and extraordinary. The whole lexicon is expanding and shifting, creating a rich and diverse mythology that is setting up an epic battle in the third book. The plot of this book, like the first one, is self-contained, but there is a cliff-hanger ending leading into the next installment. I can't wait to see what happens, and this isn't even my preferred genre. There were a few typos, but those are easily overlooked, because you'll be absorbed in the action. Fans of YA Paranormal Romance will want to read this series.
