Drowning in Deception (2013)

Drowning in Deception

Clover lived in a beautiful city where its crime rate was so low. there was a Wall that ran along the city's boundary, ensuring its citizens that the monsters were kept out of their safe, perfect city. the citizens were kept content and happy, having the freedom to do whatever pleased them, also their daily needs readily provided for them. one day, Clover crossed the Wall and found herself meeting the so-called monsters for the very first time. even though they transitioned into a beast when their emotions went out of control, they were nothing like what she was made to believe. to make things complicated, Clover's father was in charged of getting supplies from the people outside the Wall. he treated them very badly and Clover decided that it was time for her to set things right.

i received a free e-book from the author in exchanged for a review. the book took me completely by surprise. it was simple yet mysterious enough to keep my curiosity wandering; it was somewhat political yet plain enough to not weight the plot down. it was absolutely enjoyable, with a little adventure and romance going on, and a whole lot of twists that made it perfect and mind blowing! i was impressed with Clover's character development as we joined her through her phases of finding out about the truth of everything that she was taught to believe. every truth discovered had me felt a sense of satisfaction. when the last truth was out, i was almost disappointed that the book had come to an end. i love the lightheartedness of the writings especially, making the book an easy read. it has been a while that i felt being pulled into a story so much that i didn't realize that i had reach the end, making it a very rewarding read.
