My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I acquired a copy of this novella from Amazon for free when it was up for promotion. I read it and will give an honest review.
Blurb from Goodreads:
I grew up in a comfortable house with two parents and a white-picket fence. My brother, Sam, and I used to play with sticks in the backyard and pretend they were swords. There were always cookies on the table and milk in the fridge. Then, one day, things changed.
Life was never the same again. Sam left. My parents abandoned him when he needed them most, and I was left to survive in a house that was merely a shell of what it used to be. Mom cried all the time and Dad expected me to fill the void my brother left behind. But mostly, all we did was pretend. We pretended that things weren’t messed up. We pretended that Sam never existed.
Until I change
Now, everything’s a mess and I’m so confused. It’s like there are two different people trapped inside one body—my body—and one of them wants out. I do things. Bad things and I don’t know how to stop. I’m not sure I want to. The only way I can be normal again is if I find Sam. He’ll know what to do.
He has too
FYI: This book must be read in order or it will ruin what happens during the first book of this series.
As with many of the books I read and review, I did not read the blurb about this book prior to reading it. I didn't want to taint myself in any way. I also did not read any reviews until I had finished the novella. So, I really had no idea what it was about and only learned right before I finished the first book (and from the author no less) that this book was about Sam's brother!
I really love the cover of this book. It totally captures what happens in the novella. I love it when the cover theme matches what is inside the story!
I have to say that I like Logan's character. I was totally intrigued when Hebert introduced him at the end of Masquerade. He seems likeable enough, however, I don't trust him. I think there is lot more going on with Logan than we have seen so far, and hopefully Charade will show us some of that. I think he is tangled up in things that he just can't understand or begin to explain. I think he's going into a relationship with his brother with false knowledge and that can only serve to complicate his being in the picture to begin with.
And what is with the "voice" in his head? Does he have a bond with someone and not know it yet? I am curious to find out!
4 out of 5 stars from me, Ms. Hebert. Looking forward to starting Charade!
