ARC Review: The Truth by Kelley Grealis

Fresh out of vampire detox, Allison Carmichael has her cravings for human blood under control…just in time for the rest of her life to take a downward spiral.

After a loved one is murdered, Allison receives a cryptic message from the deceased. A warning to trust no one, not even those closest to her.

In order to identify the murderer, Allison must trust a mysterious stranger and piece together a series of clues while under the suspicious eye of a jealous boyfriend, a vengeful archangel and a jittery Ruling Council. When information is unearthed about the murderer and Allison’s lineage, her world isn’t the only one that’s rocked.

They say that the truth shall set you free, but will that be the case for Allison and those she loves?

  “The Truth will set you free” 
Ok, the truth made my crazy!! OMG loved this whole series, and I couldn’t wait to get ahold of thisbook in the series.  So much so, I asked the author to let me read it as soon as she was done writing.  I got my wish, but now what.  At this moment, after finishing the third and final book, I want more.  But Ms. Grealis wrapped this series up perfectly, well she left a little leadway-if she wanted to go subseries with this.  (note, there will be another book.  I found out after I wrote review)

Allison is still her testy little self, and I would be too after the year she has had.  But she has found a way to see Matt, the husband she widowed when she became a Vampire.
Vincent, he may be handsome and all that.  But he really has a problem.
Matt, he still wants Ali but can’t because of the Vampire/Angel laws. I love though that he still wanted to help her, and was there for her.
Felix, poor Felix.  But damn he was so clever and tricky putting out all those clues.  And to hide those clues while he thought someone was following him and he might die! OMG.  And why did someone have to die!!!!?
Gabriela, such a B**ch, but so glad she got what was coming to her in the end.

I just can’t give anything away, not even a tiny bit.  This is a must read, if you haven’t read the first 2 books, you must go get them and read them just so you can read book 3 and OMG too.  The last two chapters of this book, you will be so engrossed and not even realize how much you are speeding through the book.  I didn’t even realized I was so close to the end, I just wanted to know what was happening.  So dramatic! And loved the punishment that was dealt to those who harmed others, changed events and co-horted with the wrong people.
And the ending, wow.  Allison does deservethe ending she got-although I could do without that extra surprise thrown in there.  But that extra surprise could be the start of something else wonderful from Ms. Grealis!
