Book blog tour: Masquerade by Cambria Hebert

by Cambria Hebert
(Heven and Hell, #1)
Received for Review
Young Adult Paranormal Fantasy
Goodreads Average Rating: 4.65

Well Cambria's novel comes out on December 16th and she has asked me if I would be part of her blog tour. Yesterday's post can be found here and tomorrow's blog tour post can be found here. For more information feel free to visit Cambria's site.

And now here is my review of the book.

Here is the summary available on Goodreads:

Before. Everything was so much better Before. I wasn’t haunted by nightmares, my place at school was secure and my face was flawless. Now, I’m a freak and everything has changed. The worst part is that I can’t remember the night I was sentenced to the shadows. The memory has been stolen from me and I just can’t shake the feeling that someone, something is out there -watching.

Just when I think I have my life handled, Sam, with his intimidating golden stare and shiver inducing voice, makes me realize that I don’t know anything. He makes me see that my scars don’t matter. That they never mattered. I can’t help but fall for him, completely unknowing that he knows exactly how I got this way. Not knowing he was involved.


Heven has no idea how closely death stalks her. She has no idea what I have done to keep her alive. I fear the day she learns my secrets, finds out what I really am. But even then I cannot stop, I vow to make things right. Finally her hunter will be hunted, Heaven and Hell, faith and sin will battle, and we will be victorious. But first, Heven must learn to be what she never imagined. I know her strength is there – I feel it. If we are to overcome all odds, she must push past her flaws - her frailties - to become much more.

My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars.

My Overall Thoughts/Impressions:  From the moment I started reading this book, I was hooked. I loved the character Heven. I found her story intriguing and wanted to see what happened to her. I liked the idea of a really popular girl having a strange accident that she doesn't remember. She used to be popular and then after her accident and has a distorted face and now only has one friend.

The fall from popularity and her struggle to find herself in the midst of tragedy was poignant and moving.

Also, Sam had jut enough bad boy in him to keep me interested. I really liked Same as a character and loved his relationship with Heven. The romance was well-written and well-developed.

I already reviewed two short stories by this author and gushed over her writing style...this novel was no exception. Her writing was beautiful and I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. A paranormal romance novel with a lot of suspense blended into it. I haven't read a paranormal novel quite like this one. I know there are some novels like this out there, but I haven't read any like this. It was nice and refreshing. Definitely comes highly recommended.

In Summary: An incredible novel with a refreshing writing style, compelling characters, and an engaging plot line that I love.

Warnings/Side-notes: Minor violence/sex references, but nothing that I found offensive.

The Wrap-up: A great novel that I loved reading. Definitely recommended. I love this writer and will definitely  be keeping taps on her.
Happy reading and enjoy the blog tour!
