Book Review: The Deception Dance by Rita Stradling

Couple of weeks back I stumbled upon this  giveaway by an author I had not heard of. Rita Stradling was sharing her book – ‘The Deception Dance’ in exchange for a review and greedy as I am 😉 for new books, I jumped right in at the chance.  To be very honest, the cover had not been very appealing. It was the blurb that she had shared that kind of drew me in.

A few days later her email came with  news that I won the book. When I read it, I was truly impressed. The lady sure packs a punch. Read on for more about the book.

Thank you Rita,  for sharing your work and I look forward to reading more about Raven. 🙂


The Deception Dance (The Deception Dance, #1)The Deception Dance by Rita Stradling

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I got this book as part of a giveaway and I sure am glad that I got the chance to read it. This is a really good book. Very enjoyable, well-written, with a very clear storyline.

All elements that go in the making of an entertaining story can be found here. There’s action, drama, romance, magic, mystery, passion, fantasy, supernatural, the good old struggle between good and evil and much more.

The story explores the adventures of one Raven Smith and the ensuing battle between good and evil that weaves its web around her. I liked Raven’s character though many times she did remind me of Bella (Twilight).

The flow of the story is smooth and almost effortless that you would not want to put it down. Though I did find a few hiccups in a couple of places where I had to go back a few lines, but one can easily ignore these and enjoy the book. In no time I found myself close to the end of the book and it saddened me because I just didn’t want it to end. I was left with so many questions on what would happen next … would love to read more.

DD was a very interesting book and for those who love a touch of romance, passion and fantasy all-in-one, should definitely go on and read it.
