REVIEW

We have another winner folks! I could not stop reading this book I just had to keep going till I knew what would happen! I also love how the cover totally reflects the book! Win!

Tessa is the MC, she is a variant which is someone who has some sort of evolved power, her ability is to turn into anyone she wants. Her body captures DNA from the people she touches and holds onto it until she needs it. She lives in the FEA compound where she has been working and training for the past two years to become a super spy. The book revolves around her going on her first real mission in which she becomes Madison (who has been murdered) to hunt down a possible variant serial killer.

This book captured me from page one. I instantly forged a connection with Tessa whose own parents didn't want her after finding out about her variance. She fills that hole with Alec and Holly along with a handful of other characters who make up her circle of friends. Tessa's BFF Holly makes for a great partner in crime but I was disappointed that she didn't have a bigger part in the book but it's understandable since Tessa doesn't spend much time at the compound. Hopefully in the next one we can see more interactions between Tessa and her FEA friends. The people Tessa meets while she is impersonating Madison make her wish she were just a normal girl, you can feel her longing for a family to love her and I found myself wishing she could be Madison forever.

Alec is her best guy friend but it's obvious right away that she has more than just friendly feelings for him. Their relationship is dripping with sexual tension which is only made worse by the fact that for some reason their relationship seems like it is forbidden. There is some secret there that I still haven't figured out. Now I am all Team Alec but Devon (Madison's Twin Brother) could quickly become more than just a runner up if Alec doesn't change his tune.

By the final chapters I had no idea who the killer was going to be and how we found out was an intense situation. The final wrap up of the book was well done, while it didn't leave me recovering from a cliff hanger, it gave me just enough info to be able to highly anticipate the next book! Seriously! When does the next one come out?!

Bottom Line: Impostor is a thrill ride filled with excitement, suspense, and emotional tension. It keeps you guessing until the end and leaves you wanting more!
