  • Nicki Chapelway
    Such a fun story filled with intrigue, romance, and several scenes that had me chuckling.I am extremely invested in all of these characters. Somehow I ship all of them. I don't know who is my favorite character anymore, though my least favorite is probably Maggie. I don't know, I just didn't like her saying that her daughter couldn't learn sword fighting while her son could.The story was filled with twists and turns, at some points I didn't fully...

    Ready to dive back in?You only think you are. Whereas Disowned was a sweet-talking mild-mannered introduction to the Allegiance series, Dissemble strides through the door of the tavern, half-doors swinging wide, spurs glistening, and a devilish tilt to its cowboy hat--ready to take on the world. Prepared? In your dreams. This novel knows what its talking about, and isn't afraid to tell you the story. Come what may. The pacing is a lot faster here...

    3.5 starsI was excited to get reading Dissemble after finishing the first book in this series! It's an exciting new fantasy world with some great characters, lots of action, romance, and a faith thread.Dissemble was pretty fast-paced and definitely kept me reading once I got started. I was happy to see more of Mitch, Celeste, Ethan, and the rest. And also explore the lives and backstories of some newer characters. Overall, this book was a great a...

    ~ I received a free ARC in exchange for an honest review ~Dissemble takes the world that we were introduced to in Disowned and builds upon it in a realistic and familiar way. We’re reintroduced to Celeste and Mick, as well as the rest of the Haynes family, plus a whole new cast of characters that add brand-new intrigue to the storyline.Along the way Celeste is forced to confront her past, and her relationship with a certain *cough* corporal blo...

    This was brilliant. When I read the first book to this series, I liked it but wasn't hooked. This book hooked me. The first book of this series pales as just an introduction to the characters and to the world when put beside this book. Dissemble is an action-packed, suspenseful adventure, and I enjoyed every minute of the ride. I'm looking forward to the next book!

    4.5 starsWhat an awesome sequel! I got to delve even deeper into characters I'm already attached to, from Disowned. But then I also got to meet and become attached to some new characters - like Torrance Kyle, who annoyed me to no end at first but grew on me, and Amaya, who is SUPER COOL, let's face it. XDThe story is fast-paced, which I appreciated! Every scene was a game-changer and kept me endlessly turning pages. A few of my favorite things:- ...

    4.5 Stars! =DSpecial thanks to the author who gave me a copy in exchange for a review. The author did not pay me for a review and all the thoughts here are my own honest opinion.The first book was more on the peaceful side as it built up the plot for this book. And this book, wow. Everything is brought up a few more notches. There's spies, and action, and this bad guy that was interesting, to say the least. Everything was like really tense.And To...

    3.5 stars! -- Writing: The writing was easy-reading and flowed smoothly, a steadiness from book one into book two. Fantastic!-- Setting: The description was often clear (especially with the slums. It felt a Doctor Who episode!) and the locations were cool. -- Story/Plot: OK. Here's where I had some issues, and some slight spoilers, so I'll tread lightly. In short, a big motivation is one I just am tired of seeing in fiction. (view spoiler)[ Celes...

    This book is great, okay? Just read it—that is what I am tempted to just leave my review at because it would sum it all up. However, you might not be convinced you have to drop everything to read it yet, so I’ll do my best to persuade you. I’ve had the honor of first handedly seeing this book grow into the book that it is now since its first draft, and it is incredible to see the finished result. Dissemble, book two of the Allegiance series...
  • R.J. Rodda
    Loved that beach ending! No spoilers, but finally!!! This is the second book in the series (read the first book first!) and has amusing banter, spy-action, sweet romance, evil villains and some great plot-twists. And even an intact loving family where the wife listens to her husband and respects him (you don’t read that much these days). Torrance injected a bit of welcome humor into the plot. I liked the way I was uncertain about him at the sta...

    First thing I have to say: This series is quickly becoming one of my all-time favorites. Seriously. series playlist: https://open.spotify.com/user/mylittl...This book. was so good. the reason I haven't written this review before now is because I didn't know how to word it. I'm not entirely sure that I know how to now. What is it about this book that catapulted it up on my favorites list? Maybe it's the characters. Maybe it's Celeste, who is tryin...
  • Ivie
    Oh. My. Word. This. Book.I LOVE IT!! I really can't wait to read the next one. Let's see if I can collect my jumbled thoughts enough for a review worthy of this book.Story WorldWe continue in the world from book one, but now things are heating up. Everything is different with the characters and I just... ASDFGHJKL!!!PlotCeleste is on a quest, a mission, and she will stop at nothing. I love how strong this book was. Book one is great, don't get me...
  • Tricia Mingerink
    In this action-packed second book in the Allegiance series, Sarah Addison-Fox packs a wallop of heart-tugging characters and heart-pounding action. Both the characters and the author find their stride and footing in this book. If the worldbuilding was good in the first book, but perhaps lacked a tiny bit of clarity, it was crystal clear and stark in this book. If the plot took a bit to ramp up its tension in the first book, this book marched alon...

    (Originally reviewed on my book blog: https://thepagedreamer.wordpress.com/...)Ten Thoughts on Dissemble1. Well, well! That was intense! O_O I enjoyed book one (Disowned), but this sequel takes things to a totally new level. While the first one was a bit more of a quiet adventure (though still with its spots of action/peril) and I really liked that, book two has a whole other feel to it, with stakes raised, and gets more serious with lots of stuf...
  • Savannah Jezowski
    I was very excited to read the second book in the Allegiance Series by budding novelist, Sarah Addison-Fox. Book One surprised me with its unique nature, how the author combined a YA themed novel with family values, and book two followed in the same venue but with some new twists of its own.What I liked: Book Two is just as fast paced and endearing as book one, but it is a harsher tale. The heroine, a former slave, finds herself in new and more d...

    Lovely. :)
  • Annie Twitchell
    AHHHHHHHH I need to hug all these characters.I got to see a lot more world-building played out here and finally, a fantasy world that has people excited to go to the beach!! Celeste and Mick are precious and I love them both, Rita needs alllllll the hugs, and I really really *really* love Maggie. I'm looking forward to finishing the series and at the same time, I'm not!
  • Eva
    The twist about Torrance and Smyth near the end took this from 3.5 stars to four stars. I loooove Torrance and Amaya.
  • Hannah Schuck
    Oh my goodness gracious... that was so beautiful. *tears flow* What a perfect ending... now I can't wait for book three!!The description and story line were even more intense and wonderful then the last book ( and when the series gets better and better why I just want to keep reading!! ). I had only one slight problem with this book, but I was able to brush past it. So overall a marvellous read!!Description : Was beautiful. I could imagine the sc...
  • Claire Banschbach
    Really really enjoyed this book! I read most of it in one sitting, although granted most of that was going "What the heck is Mick going to do now? Bless his great big stupid heart." XD But in all honesty, he's adorable. Celeste continues to struggle and grow. After the whirlwind aftermath of book 1's ending, we see her becoming an agent and sent off on her first, rather dubious, mission. But she starts to get stronger, mentally and physically and...
  • Laura A. Grace
    This story surprised me in numerous ways! You see a lot more of everyone's real colors and there is even more of a higher edge of danger then before.I knew going in that this story had more "grit" then the first book, which I was fine with, but I didn't expect for things to be so intense! :o :o :o I don't mean that in a bad way, but things really take off from where things ended in book one. Celeste gets no break and admired her for fighting to s...
  • Karyssa
    Wow! This book was amazing! After finishing the first book, I was really curious about what was going to happen to all the characters. I was NOT disappointed. :D The pace of the story picks up in this book and there is more action. The suspense kept me reading but oh, the plot twists! Totally didn't see those coming, and I'm still not over it (and I probably won't be for awhile). This book greatly exceeded my expectations. :)
  • Betty Johnson
    Great book,talented story lineIt took me a little while to get into the story.once I did, however it was exciting. I've specially like the strong female characters even if they had been slaves. I am anxious to find out what happens to Mitch and Celeste in the second book.
  • Allyson
    While Disowned quietly introduces readers to the countries of Kyraena and Etraea, the war, and the lovely characters, Dissemble takes all the previous information and floors the gas into an unforgettable tale of adventure! Celeste has done what she believes is best for the Haynes family, only to find herself in increasing danger. Little does she know that her knight in shining armor is on the way… and it. Gets. GOOD. We get to see Celeste break...
  • Julian Daventry
    So at first, I extremely disliked this book. I'm reading chapter after chapter, thinking "I can't believe there are two more books to go...people are actually still reading this???" It was just fairly boring....Celeste is kind of a Mary Sue. Mick is dull. His younger siblings don't really act like little kids would. The worldbuilding is horrible. And it's all just boring.But I kept reading. And as I pushed on, I suddenly found myself rooting for ...
