Review: Despite a somewhat unpromising beginning and a slightly awkward attempt at "teen language", "Deception" soon unfolds into an addicting, juicy, and highly-entertaining read that ultimately calls for rereads and the craving for a sequel. With school-life, romance, and supernatural rolled into one satisfying book, the first of the "Haunting Emma" series would keep you hooked for a seemingly perfectly-lengthed-yet-not-enough experience. Do not be deceived by the cliche and overused ghost theme as Nichols spins up an impressively appealing world for her characters that you would find yourself eagerly following and swooning over. The characters are absolutely charming and develops nicely as well. There is much action and twists and turns with clever surprises tucked in here and there. Such a compelling read that ends with a half-frustrating, half-stunning cliff hanger end calls for the craving for a sequel, which by the way, does not disappoint either. (Sequel, see "Betrayal")
