    One thought on “Cage of Deceit”

    1. I read Cage of Deceit for the Self Published Fantasy Blog Off and can confirm that it has progressed through to Fantasy Book Review's internal semi-final stages. The opening episode of the Reign of Secrets trilogy is set a generation after the events of the True Reign saga. The author advises us that there won't be a 'neat, tidy wrap up at the end of this book' and that she 'enjoys leaving people hanging from cliffs.' This intrigued me from the get-go. In the third person perspective, readers fo [...]

    3. **You can see this full review and more at Book Briefs: bookbriefs**Cage of Deceit by Jennifer Anne Davis is the first in a young adult series called the Reign of Secrets series. It is a young adult fantasy series that totally rocked my world! It is one of my favorite books of 2015. It might even take the top spot on my best of the best 2015 list. It was seriously that good. This is my first book I've read by Jennifer and I have to say, I will be reading many more. Not to mention I even dreamt a [...]

    4. spfbo book #25 I wouldn't have known about this book without spfbo, I picked it up knowing it was a YA book, but I'm trying to expand a bit and some YA books I really have enjoyed. The main character is a princess named Alyssa, and she sneaks out at night calling herself Lilly and hanging out with peasants dressed as a peasant. She befriends someone named Grevik and they hunt down thieves and other stuff at night. My problem with this is supposedly she's been doing this since she was 12, but the [...]

    7. Since I'll wake up to this amazing books sequel, I'm re reading this to get back into my favorite story (:**Originally read January 28 to 29, 2016**I have not loved a book this much in SO long! I am stuck between being at a loss for words, and rambling on and on like a psycho.The True Reign series was very good. This book is a spinoff of that series. In this book, we meet Rema and Darmiks daughter, Princess Allyssa. She us every bit as stubborn, yet caring, as her mother. This book has everyone [...]

    8. Loved getting to know more about Rema spunky daughter Alyssa, once again Jennifer has knocked it out the park and brought us back together with her beloved characters from the True Reign series and is giving us some new ones to love. I love every book of Jennifer and she is on my auto buy list for all time.

    9. *Source* Publisher*Genre* YA, Fantasy*Rating* 4*My Thoughts*Cage of Deceit is the first installment in author Jennifer Anne Davis's Reign of Secrets series. 16-year old protagonist Allyssa is the Crown Princess, & only daughter of Emperor Darmish and Empress Rema of Emperion. By night, her alter-ego "Lily" fights crime alongside her best friend Grevik who not only wants to avenge his father, but also become one of the Guards of the city.

    10. Cage of Deceit managed to surpass the hype, and I absolutely fell in love with this one! Allyssa is one badass princess. I loved her character so much. The fantasy and plot elements were well written, and the slow burn romance was perfectly executed. Strong secondary characters and lots of twists and political intrigue make this book such a hit for me! I highly recommend you check this one out :)

    11. I recently received and ARC to beta read and to provide an honest reviewWhen you read a book and there is a warning that there is going to be a cliffhanger at the end, it can take the readers mind and either make you want to put the book down or plow right into it. Well Jennifer's warning that the book would end in a cliffhanger really wanted me to read the whole book through. Jennifer can write amazing cliffhangers that are just WOW!Cage of Deceit is a spin off from her amazing YA True Reign se [...]

    12. I recently attended Book Expo of America in New York City with a couple of blogging friends of mine, and sort of jumped in blind. I knew of maybe 5 books that were going to be featured there and that I MUST-HAVE. CAGE OF DECEIT was in that top 5!A couple of month’s back I came across her TRUE REIGN series and absolutely LOVED it. There are only three books in the series, and they were amazing! When I found out that she had written a spin-off I literally jumped with joy. I am not kidding! That [...]

    13. I had signed up to do a blog tour with Good Choice Reading Promotions for Cage of Darkness which is the second book in the Reign of Secrets series. For a lucky few who committed to the blog tour the author was offering a limited number of signed books for the first in the series, which was Cage of Deceit. Heck Yeah! I was one of the lucky bloggers and I am so very grateful. This was a lovely book that took me on a journey that I did not want to leave.Cage of Deceit is a young adult fantasy story [...]

    14. We have flawed, judgmental characters who feel truly human. There's political intrigue and deceit so thick you can disappear inside of it. And threats that gleam like a blade in the night. Welcome to the Cage of Deceit, where even a princess isn't all she's cracked up to be.Summary:When you're born to rule, you must learn to have two faces. One for your subjects, who seek to adore you. The other for yourself, so you remember that you are not perfect.This is a lesson Allyssa has not only learned [...]

    15. I have read a lot of books by Jennifer Anne Davis and was both excited and nervous to hear that there was going to be a spin off series for the True Reign stories. There is always that moment of worry that they won't be as good as the originals but I didn't have to worry.Cage of Deceit had me hooked from the first page. Characters new and old fill the pages as you start on adventure in a place many of us know well. Twists and Turns, Danger and Drama - seriously this book has it all! Heart-droppi [...]

    16. This was a phenomenal start to a new series by an author I really enjoy.The writing is superb and the characters are intriguing. The plot was a little predictable at times but I still found myself enjoying every minute of it. Jarvik had earned a spot on my bookshelf boyfriends. *Sigh* And if you seriously don't see the twist with his character coming, then you're blind! I was impressed with how the author turned this from yet another predictable plot at the end and steered this into a slightly d [...]

    17. I LOVED IT! This was my first Jennifer Anne Davis book, and now I'll be getting the rest of her books to read. Also, after this book's ending, I need book 2 ASAP!You can read my FULL REVIEW here mundiemoms/2015/0

    18. 2.5 starsThis is definitely a young adult book. It feels that way through and through. It was very easy to figure out what was going on early in the story. It's a quick read and I would of given it 3 stars but near the end I rolled my eyes too many times. This book has a similar feel to Maas' Throne of Glass (minus the fae)--yep, that's two books in a row for me with that theme, lol, so it's time to change things up.So, if you liked that book, you'll probably like this one.Huge cliffhanger but a [...]

    19. An amazing fantasy that is a thrilling adventure from start to finish. I totally found myself loving the world that Jennifer Anne Davis has written in Cage of Deceit. This was a real gem to read.There were so many great things to love about this book. I couldn’t resist the captivating characters and world that the author created.The World BuildingWorld Building is one of the most important things about fantasy novels that I totally love and enjoy a great deal. The world that Jennifer Anne Davi [...]

    20. EDIT - I can't believe I did not realize I had just read the first book of the series that this one is a spinoff from. I didn't get the connection. I didn't like it as well as this one and when I read my review one of the reasons is the same - the heroine leaving the castle with no one realizing it and not getting caught. I read and love a lot of YA (even though I am not a YA) but I think these books are more for the young teens.3.5 for me but just could not round it up to 4 stars. It was a quic [...]

    21. The premise of CAGE OF DECEIT - a princess by day / vigilante by night - sounded right up my alley. There’s a lot to like here. We have a budding romance amidst a looming war, political intrigue, and some good action to round things out.Overall, I enjoyed the story and the setup for future novels. I liked that Alyssa's parents were together, happy, and appeared to be partners in managing the kingdom. It was a positive portrayal that I feel we don’t find too often in fantasy. Jarvik was proba [...]

    22. Dear Jennifer Anne Davis,I have kidnapped your review.In exchange for the review, please write the sequel as soon as possible.Please continue making sure Allyssa is not a whiny princess and kicks butt like nobody's business. I would also appreciate it greatly if Allyssa and Jarvik are kept intact and alive. Injuries are acceptable. Death of either two are completely and absolutely unacceptable within any circumstances.Failure to do the former will result in a raging reviewer complaining about a [...]

    23. *~ Original review on GotToReadThoseBooks ~*In this enchanting spin-off Jennifer Anne Davis brings the world she created in the True Reign series to a whole new level. There’s plot turns and twists, action and suspense. And a dash of romance, as expected from Jennifer Anne Davis' previous books.I also have to mention the lay-out of the book, it’s so pretty! It’s subtle, elegant but definitely there. And the text on the first page, omg, I love that too. There’s a warning that the book has [...]

    24. Cover: I love it! Fits the novel beautifully!Cage of Deceit is a wonderful blend of fairy tale and fast-paced, thrilling adventure. With a kick-ass heroine princess, this novel will not only get your heart racing, but leave you clamoring for book two.

    25. Great story. This has it all. Equal parts action and romance. If you're a fan of The True Reign Series, you'll devour this book.

    26. Loved seeing Rema and Darmik again. This book is about their spunky daughter Allyssa. She's everything I expected she'd be. Great story.
