      Unmasked really took me by surprise I had no idea that when I picked up this book I would encounter such an entertaining plot and set characters I really enjoyed the romance in this novel, even if it did happen very quickly Both Mel and Ott won me over with their personalities and how they handled their feelings for one another There were plenty of scenes which made me giddy with happiness for them.The action in this novel kept the story flowing, and left me eager to figure out what was to happe [...]

      E.M Kaplan s prose is so gorgeous, I sometimes found myself thinking about how pretty the writing was and had to go back and read it again She s a great writer The book started with rolling literally action that ends with the hero and heroine desperately groping for each other, and then opens to an entire world rife with well developed characters The Mask characters themselves, who are sort of empathic chameleons are unique and fascinating characters As are the brutish trogs The world is so comp [...]

      I received this book at my request in exchange for an honest review.This story is not what you would think it is It is a mixture of old world and modern age I do not know if I am able to but this story in a particular genre This story is about a woman named Mel When we are first introduced to her she is battling for her life and she is saved by someone that she would least expect.This story at times was really difficult to follow with the multiple different points of view This is not a book that [...]

      I downloaded Unmasked as a free book from Here s a story which surprised me with great characters, fast pacing, and unique world building I enjoyed the main protagonist, Mel, and her internal struggle to fit into Mask society A lot of small sub plots keep the action going and invest the reader in multiple secondary characters There were some areas that could have benefited from additional depth or background, but overall this tipped toward 5 stars than fourI ll admit to being curious about boo [...]

      I say 4.5 stars I really enjoyed this paranormal tale by E.M Kaplan The story hit the ground running and didn t let up till the end The characters were engaging and there was even a little mystery.I have read her Josie Tucker mystery series as well and I will continue both series.

      This was an interesting world with an intriguing cast of characters Not the usual Kaplan book that I am used to, but it was an enjoyable change of genre.

      EM Kaplan doesn t lead you gently into the pages of her fantasy novel Unmasked Instead, she pushes you off a cliff and wishes you luck as you plummet head first into this action packed story of a young woman named Mel who is desperately trying to find her place in the world that Kaplan has so artfully created.The action starts right on Page One when Mel, who is in training to become a Mask, is kidnapped by a hulking, vaguely humanoid monster and carried pell mell through the woods toward an unce [...]
