Dissension is the Deliverance series by Kristy Centeno. It is a fantastic paranormal story- with action, drama, thrills, excitement, edge of your seat suspense, gripping danger, supernatural elements, romance, and much more. There is so much packed in-between the covers of this book- the story pulled me in and kept me hooked right till the end. The story picks up a few months after the events in Deliverance (Book #1) and we are thrown right into the action. I have to say that it is every bit as good as the first book and I was so engrossed in it that I read it in one sitting. Although this could be read as a standalone if you wanted to, I really recommend reading the first book to get all the backstory, character information and other relevant details that will enhance your reading experience of this book.
It has been 6 months since the Institute was destroyed and all the captives were liberated. Hayden has spent the time adjusting to the world outside, building a life with Kristina. He is a very quick learner, but the transition hasn’t been easy. But now they discover that Gerald Radcliff’s business associates are determined to recreate what Gerald had achieved and pick up where he had left off. They have been scouring the countryside looking for all the hybrids, recapturing them for more experimentation. His life just became even more dangerous and will set off a new chain of events that will trust them ll into a new battle. There is a lot at stake, and Hayden will discover more about his past in the process.
Ms. Centeno has written such a powerful, detailed and vibrant story- she had me on the edge of my seat, following along to see what would happen. The story had twists and surprises that I didn’t see coming-all I could do was hold onto my seat and enjoy the ride.
The author has done an amazing job with her character development, as I was completely under their spell from beginning to end. The characters were fully realised, with their own unique traits and personalities. There was a lot of love, skill and attention to detail put into their conception and actualization.
This is a superb second instalment to the series and I look forward to more from Ms. Centeno!
Thank you, Ms. Centeno!
