Emma Vaile is the most powerful ghostkeeper in centuries. Which is great when she’s battling the wraith-master Neos, but terrible when she’s flirting with fellow ghostkeeper (and soul mate) Bennett. When ghostkeepers fall in love, the weaker one loses all power, and that’s not something Bennett can handle. Heartbroken and alone, Emma tries to lose herself in school with fellow ghostkeeper, Natalie. When a new team of ghostkeepers arrive—one a snarky teen
boy, the other a British scholar—Emma finds solace in training for the battle against Neos. But as the team grows stronger, they are threatened by an unknown force. One they thought was good.
As chilling and page-turning as Deception, this sequel will grab readers and hold them to the last page. No one is safe from suspicion as Emma closes in on the traitor. – Goodreads
My Opinion: This wasn’t as good as the first in the series. However, there was a little more looking into things and we find some more background into how unique Emma is and not just Emma but her family as well. Betrayal had me going there. There was a line in the novel that said something similar to, Betrayal is a hard thing to bear, and who the person was talking about I was thought no way but then, when I started thinking about it, it was plausible.
We are also introduced to the Knell, let me just say… wow, take off the dragon’s head and it all comes crashing down.
The plot was different because now that Bennet and Emma are together, they can’t be together.
I have to also add that the idea of the ghostkeepers is really cool. I almost wish I was one. Almost, but ya the story was interesting and kept me reading it.
Overall: 4 out of 5
