Summary from Goodreads:

Ever since she could remember, Elle has had to hop from town to town to keep up with her dad's demanding career as a corporate insurance agent. Each time, a reoccurring nightmare followed her wherever she went--until the day that the frightening figures haunting her at night became all too real. 

When news of a serial killer spreads throughout her new school, Elle worries that the Reaper has been leaving her his calling card in the form of cigarette butts on her doormat and an unusual ribbon in her locker. With the help of Brian, a boy she meets at a flea market, she discovers that this isn't her first encounter with the murderer and that her father has been concealing her true identity for the past twelve years. 

But despite her father's desperate attempts to protect her, Elle still comes face to face with the darkness she has been running from her whole life. Trapped in the woods and with help hundreds of miles away, will Elle be able to confront the Reaper and reclaim the life she lost?


My Review

5 of 5 Deceived

Deceived is one of those books that takes you by surprise. I mean I was thinking one thing after reading the blurb and then I started reading it and I was like dam what the heck is going on, why is Elle having these nightmares and crap what do they mean? Why is her father acting weird and changing her boarding school again? My head was whirling with so many questions I had to stop and sit down and relax and then pick the book back up. That is how much I wanted no needed to know what was going on.

I felt so bad for Elle because her father was always moving her around and just when she would get comfortable he would move her. This last boarding school though she is finally a senior and she has fallen for this guy who goes to school with her Nicholas. They build a friendship but Nicholas tries to stay away from Elle because he has secrets and his secrets could hurt her. So Nicholas tries to fight the feelings he has for her but he can't because he cares for her to much.

Elle decides she has had enough and she wants to find out about her life and why she can't find out anything about her family. Once she starts to investigate her life and her dreams become reality Elle will have to rely on Nicholas to keep her safe. What will happen when her dreams that are nightmares come for her? What will happen when she finds out who her dad really is? Can Nicholas help her? Can Nicholas save her from the dark?

This is a must read book that I enjoyed so much. I could not put it down and I was right there every step of the way and the ending was one I will not forget. Some books stay with you and this is one of those books that will stay with you.
