Reviewed by Lisa
Life began as the privileged bastard son of a wealthy businessman. Everything changed in a single moment when the child witnessed a murder right before his eyes. Fleeing with his mother and nanny their new lives begun.
As far as anyone at Kegan State University is concerned Jamie Dexson is a cute and petite female co-ed. Little does anyone know that she is actually a he who’s been in hiding from a murderous father for over a decade.
Close to no one Jamie, his mother, and nanny live a quiet, discreet life trying not to attract any attention because Jamie has many secrets that must remain hidden. In a few days he will turn 21 and while he doesn’t know the important significance of this day his father does and so do the others seeking him out. They are all closer than Jamie realizes and time is running out. Tick tock.
What begins as a tense family drama involving murder evolves into a fantasy filled with deadly shifters, vampires, and magic in Deadly Secrets. The first story in the Dark Kings of Eternity series packs a powerful punch. Jamie and another battle against everyone else in this darkly layered suspense filled tale with more mysteries than you can imagine. There is little cheer between the large cast of characters though deception is plentiful everywhere. Deadly Secrets slowly unfolds, almost too slowly, but once the plot gets rolling there’s no stopping it until several mighty climaxes explode. While major storyline points are answered the book does end with an obvious continuation. Powerful and intoxicating, Deadly Secrets will have readers panting for the next chapters. My foot is tapping with impatience already.
