Masquerade

Review 4/5 stars!!

I'm disfigured. Scarred. Ugly. 
When I look in the mirror, I see a stranger. When I look over my shoulder, no one's there… 
Yet I feel watched. Hunted. Afraid.
And then he tells me I’m beautiful. 
He tells me I’m safe.
I believe him.
Until someone tries to kill me.
Secrets abound, danger is near, and still… my heart desires a boy with whiskey-colored eyes and far too many secrets.
Secrets that could cost me my life.
To stay alive I have to look deep, beneath the masks everyone wears, to find the truth.
To find myself.

Masquerade is a great read! I loved the characters, the writing, the mystery, the action, the self discovery and of course the relationship between Heven and Sam.

Heven was attacked and left with scars, but doesn't remember any of it. Once the popular cheerleader, she has completely lost herself after the attack, she has no confidence, lots of anxiety and hides behind her clothes and her hair. But with the help of her two best friends, her grandmother and the new boy at school who doesn't see Heven's scar but sees her as the beautiful girl she is, Heven finds herself slowly getting her confidence and her life back and finds out who she truly is.

Cambria Hebert does a great job writing this story. The characters and their relationships are amazing. Getting to read about different paranormal creatures than you usually read about was also a big plus for me. Masquerade is a must read.
