Review: Masquerade

I received a copy of this from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. So here it is:

Masquerade (Micah Grey, #3)

Title: Masquerade

Author: Laura Lam

Series: The Micah Grey Trilogy

 

What’s it about? Micah’s Chimaera powers are growing, until his dark visions overwhelm him. Drystan is forced to take him to Dr Pozzi, to save his life. But can they really trust the doctor, especially when a close friend is revealed to be his spy?

Meanwhile, violent unrest is sweeping the country, as anti-royalist factions fight to be heard. Then three chimaera are attacked, after revealing their existence with the monarchy’s blessing – and the struggle becomes personal. A small sect decimated the chimaera in ancient times and nearly destroyed the world. Now they’ve re-emerged to spread terror once more. Micah will discover a royal secret, which draws him into the heart of the conflict. And he and his friends must risk everything to finally bring peace to their land.

Review: False Hearts

 

Title: False Hearts

Author: Laura Lam

Series: None

Who’s it for? Adults. Not that I think that teens wouldn’t enjoy it, but it does involve sex, drugs and violence…so personal preference I guess

 

What’s it about? One night Tila stumbles home, terrified and covered in blood. She’s then arrested for murder, the first by a civilian in decades. The San Francisco police suspect involvement with Verve, a powerful drug, and offer her twin sister Taema a chilling deal. Taema must assume Tila’s identity and gather information to bring down the drug syndicate. The police may then let her sister live. However, Taema’s investigation raises ghosts from the twins’ past.

The sisters were raised by a cult, which banned modern medicine – yet as conjoined twins, they needed life-saving surgery to replace their failing heart. And with help from co-conspirators, they escaped. Taema now discovers that Tila had found links between the cult and the city’s criminal underworld. The twins were once unable to keep secrets, but will learn the true cost of lies.

My latest book haul

I haven’t done a book haul post before, but I figured I’d acquired so many new books recently I just had to shout about them.

 

 

Ones I boughtuprootedandbrokensky

I walked into my local Waterstones recently and walked out with Uprooted by Naomi Novik and Broken Sky by L. A. Weatherly.

I LOVED the Temeraire series, so I’ve got high hopes for Uprooted, and I grabbed Broken Sky because you can’t just get one book on a buy one get one half price offer. Although it did mean I spent about an hour wandering around reading blurb after blurb. It was an hour well spent I think!
