Title: Seeds of Deception Author: Linda Castillo Published: May 31st 2016 by Minotaur Books Format: ebook Genre: Fiction Series: Kate Burkholder #7.5
Innocence is a hard thing to lose and when young Katie Burkholder has to decide between the story that her best friend is telling and one that the local bully and liar is saying, Katie’s world comes into a sharper focus. Things are not adding up in Katie’s mind and sometimes “the lines between right and wrong seemed crooked and gray”. She knows where her responsibilities lie, but sometimes it is best to let thing play out.
This short story does not add anything to the Kate Burkholder series; there are no deep secrets revealed or clarifications made. Maybe you can call it a slight glimpse into what helped to form Kate, but still, there is nothing new here.
Due take note that about half of this offering is Seeds of Deception with the balance being a sneak peek of her upcoming novel – Among the Wicked.
