Goodreads Synopsis
Heven has no idea how closely death stalks her. She has no idea what I have done to keep her alive. I fear the day she learns my secrets, finds out what I really am. But even then I cannot stop, I vow to make things right. Finally her hunter will be hunted, Heaven and Hell, faith and sin will battle, and we will be victorious. But first, Heven must learn to be what she never imagined. I know her strength is there – I feel it. If we are to overcome all odds, she must push past her flaws - her frailties - to become much more.
My Review
First of all i want to thank the mods on PNR & UF Fanatics who gave me this book as part of the R2R event.
I need to point out that I’ve read “Before” the prequel to “Masquerade” and I fell in love with the story from the start.

It’s a short story about Sam and some events that occur on Heven´s life.
The story line it´s so well developed that even though it´s just a couple of pages you understand perfectly everything that’s happening and at the same time gives you an extra pull to read masquerade.
Is one of the best prequels I’ve read.
The story centers around Hev a really beautiful girl both on the inside and out, that has the perfect life: lots of great friends, good grades a loving family, did I mention already that she is also cheerleader squad captain? No? Well there you go, she is no average Barbie she is super smart loving and caring; and one day her life fell apart.
She hides from herself and from the world and lives an empty life for a few months and then Sam appears.
 I just loved Sam character he’s strong willed  and has a heart of gold, I loved the way the author plays with the concept of good an evil inside him; he isn´t the typical knight in shining armor that can´t do a thing wrong.
This book has strong content and really gory details about murders that take place alongside the story, I was shocked cause even though it really is very detailed (my stomach can´t take it)  it fits perfectly and it gave me a really good insight of the twisted mind of the villain of Masquerade.
The fact that the love story was extremely well developed earned a gazillion points on my part, the way Sam made his way into Hev´s heart was ideal and made me love this book even more; also there wasn´t just blind acceptance of the strange things happening around Hev, she wonders, thinks.  The girl has a mind of her own YAY!!!!!!! Long time no see!!!!!

The only thing that had me unsettled at first was the fact that she hides into herself from the world but when Sam arrives, she starts to hide behind Sam, that isn´t a healthy relationship at all, but, as the story progress she emerges from her cocoon and bam!!!, we have a heroine on our hands.
This is one of the best reads I’ve had in 2011 I can´t wait to read more of this story.
