I didn't think Ms. Nelson could top her first book, Craved. But boy was i wrong! Deceived is amazing and exceeded my expectations. She knows how to write a book book full of mystery, intrigue, sexual tension and action that will leave you on the edge of your seat! I'm so pumped for this series and to find out what book 3 will entail. Stephanie Nelson may be an Indie author, but she has the talent to compete with the big dogs!

It's difficult to top the first book in a series. That being said, that's exactly what Stephanie Nelson did with Deceived. The story line was engaging and the new characters left me intrigued. Dorian in particular. Although Gwen is adamant about her feelings for Aiden, the connection she shares with the Angel of Death is unavoidable. I found myself actually rooting for Dorian which is sad because in Craved i was team Aiden haha. The sexual tension between Gwen and Dorian was excellent. Stephanie has a way of describing her characters so they feel like real people. Add to the fact that she knows how to set up a scene so you feel like you can picture the place, well it makes for one excellent book! Can't wait to find out what happens in the third book. On a side note, i'm very anxious to read her upcoming book, Taming the Wolf. We get a small preview in Deceived and i so wanted to keep reading.

This is the second book of the Gwen Sparks series. Gwen is now at the Witches Council and has no choice but to help by being their secret weapon against the vampires. Gwen doesn't want to go to war but if she turns her back on her own kind, she will become an outcast with no protection. Gwen believes with Aiden on her side that she can figure out a way to solve the "brew" problem without war against the vampires. Dorian, the Angel of Death, has been tasked with teaching Gwen to use her spirit walker side. Gwen feels a strong connection with Dorian but wants to remain loyal to Aiden. Aiden will use his own sire, Aaron, to break her bond with Ian but the cost is high for Gwen. She must let all of the vampire council drink her blood. In the end when a plan is set to kill Ian and break the bond, the truth comes out who is good and who is bad. This book drops a big bomb on Gwen and I think will change her for the rest of the series. I didn't like that Gwen is constantly fighting with everyone in this book and never really embraces her spirit walker side until she is forced to. I really do like the series and will continue to read them.

In book 2 of The Gwen Sparks Series, we see Gwen in Moon preparing for a war against vampires. Her relationship with Aidan is stretched to the limit when she learns of secrets he’s hidden and the American Witches Council finds out she’s bonded to Ian Devereaux. In the middle of all of this, in walks the handsome Dorian, Angel of Death. This sequel was even better than book one, Gwen learns about her powers, there’s romance and even some mystery in the mix. Although this book was remarkably shorter than what I’m used to, it was a fantastic read worthy of a five star rating!

Great book! Sexy and exhilirating made for a good second after Craved. Im hoping that the next one comes out soon and will definitely be buying it. Its refreshing to have a book about the supernatural that doesnt revolve around teenagers in high school.

I really enjoyed the first book in the Gwen Sparks series by Stephanie Nelson, Craved. Getting to know Gwen and her friends Fiona, Micah, and especially Aiden (hubba, hubba), as well as learning all about the town of Flora and the interactions between different species in the paranormal world. Gwen's irreverent sense of humor and sensualistic nature made for some very compelling reading!! I was looking forward to reading Book 2, Deceived, and it was still a good read, but much, much darker than Book 1. Gwen learns the consequences of her run-in with the evil Ian Despereaux, is distrusted by the Witches Council due to her relationship with hunky Aiden, and has to learn to work with the Angel of Death. Along the way Gwen witnesses and is forced to experience some pretty horrific events which we the readers get to encounter right along with her, in pretty thorough detail. It was a little too much for me. Deceived was not quite to my taste, but it was still a good read with lots of excitement and unexpected twists.

The story focuses on the witches and the vampires exclusively this time as a war is brewing between the two races, and pays specific attention to the role Gwen is to play in that war. She struggles to balance her trust issues, boy problems, war training, and training in her Spirit Walker gift. Not to mention her struggles with her bond to Ian that we discovered at the end of the last book. Despite a few editing errors, the book was interesting and thrilling as Gwen wades through the complex situation she’s found herself in. I didn’t relish walking in Gwen’s shoes during Ian’s attacks, but I get how the experience was integral to the story as it drove Gwen’s actions, decisions, and behaviors. Overall it was an enjoyable read.

Loved both books in the series so far and can't wait for book 3. Did some searching and found that book 3 will be out late summer/fall 2012. Super excited!! Hadn' t heard of the author until searching on my Nook and glad I decided to try the Gwen Sparks series...it has everything u want in a book about witches and vampires. Definitely recommend for those liking this genre. Enjoy!!!

Wow! If you liked Craved, you’ll love Deceived. New characters, action, drama, romance, sex, humor, suspense. It'll keep you guessing until the last chapter and then wham. Loved it!
