Review: Dark Deceit (Dark #1) by Lauren Dawes

Dark Deceit - Lauren Dawes

I received an ARC from Pan Macmillan, via netgalley, in return for an honest review.

 

If you're into your Norse Gods and like a lot of action with a twist of passion, you are in for a treat! Dark Deceit has strong characters, mixing human and non-human together in this delicious and gritty rollercoaster ride of a novel. It's vicious but soft, cruel yet tender, tells of an electrifying attraction that seeks to triumph against all odds.

 

The mythology isn't factual here, but that doesn't stop the powerful characters springing to life straight from the pages. The story is gripping and intense, I was disappointed when it ended and left me wanting more. I'm very much looking forward to the second Dark book. 4/5
