This may be my favorite book in the series so far. I swear they just keep getting better and better. I think I have officially reached that point where I want to go back and reread the entire series because I want more! I want to go back with all the new information revealed in this book and read the others again, so I can see if I should have expected all the surprises. However, I don't think I could have seen them coming. Deceptive Treasures was HUGE for the series. I learned a lot about some the of characters I didn't pay much attention to before, but I want to know everything about them now! This book has left me reeling, and it's going to take a while to move past this one...lol!
First of all, it's written by Dianna Love, so I knew it would be hot and full of excitement. However, being that the book starts off in freaking North Korea, I knew this excitement was going to a whole new level. Add in all the properly used mentions of FUBAR, and, yeah, there was a whole new level of excitement. Those poor Slye Temp guys, of all the places. North Korea guarantees trouble. Dianna Love also has one heck of a talent when it comes to the in-between-chapters cliffhangers. Someone gets shot, then BAM you are somewhere else, dying from the anticipation of what is happening elsewhere, but I love that!!! She does a fantastic job filling in information from the other books, in case you forgot, or have not read them yet. Just let me say though, if you have not read the other books.....GO READ THEM!!!
The little puzzles within the book were amazing as well. All kinds of questions pop up, and trust me, the answers are worth the wait. There were a lot of great surprises in this book. Well, they were great for the readers, not so great for the characters. Jin was one shock after another, but seeing her character develop, really made this story one of the best. I think she is one of my favorite heroines of all time! She is most definitely one of the toughest! The Orion Hunters are taking center stage, and it is fascinating.
Another thing I really love about this book is how crazy the women make the guys. I don't want to give it all away, but just know, a lot of stuff comes out in this book that I think is really setting up the future books of the series. I know it all left me wanting more. I could go on forever about all the greatness stuffed into these pages, but that would ruin the surprises, so get this book and read it, or better yet, get them all!
