Deception (The Dark Matter Trilogy)

We rated this book:


This is a fast-paced, futuristic science fiction story about a terrible epidemic that is affecting the world after some scientists mess around with dark matter. This is Book 2 in the series and follows three teenagers: Callie, her sister Shay, and Kai as they try to uncover what is behind this terrible contagion. Shay thinks she is a carrier of the disease, so she leaves her friends and turns herself in to a government facility for survivors. Kai and Callie are searching for Shay and the scientist they think started the disease. The book is well-written in clear language that keeps a nice fast pace of action and plot twists. The chapters are narrated from different perspectives which also helps us get to know different characters better. The main characters are well-developed and have grown a bit since the first book. They are likable and believable even though one of them is technically a ghost. The other characters could have been developed more so that we get to know they better. Some of the romantic relationships seem unneeded. This is a good book for people over the age of fifteen who like apocalyptic, futuristic action stories with characters you can stand behind and surprising plot twists.
