The Deceiver by RJ Machado De Quevedo is the first book in the Deceiver saga.
In The Deceiver, God reveals the spiritual battle that swirls around us to a young college student. We also learn of her rough childhood and difficult beginnings that she has overcome with the help of a close friend. Elements of her earlier struggles then come back into her life in a way that she would never had imagined.
This book spends a lot of time inside the head of this young girl and her internal struggles. This can make the book move a bit slow, but it is written well enough to keep you turning pages. I also like the wry humor the young girl has in her internal conversations.
One thing this book does very well is force to you jump into the next book in the saga. This first book in the series seems to just set the table. She has been given a special book through a miraculous event and doesn't get back to it in this first book. There has to be a lot more to this.
All in all, this is a good book. It moves a little slow, but the character is very likeable and it's written well enough to keep you wanting to see what the next page brings.
