About Lakisha Spletzer

I'm an Indie Cross-Genre writer of science fiction/fantasy. I started writing stories and poetry at the age of 8 and haven't stopped yet.

I think I've always been a writer, but becoming a published one took a lot of work and dedication. That didn't happen until after I left my home state of Virginia, and moved to Florida in 2004.

I've learned to not let life's many road blocks and speed bumps throw me to the curb. I can't wait to dive in and continue to share the stories swirling around in my head.

I really enjoyed the story of this book, but found the writing a little confusing in places.

I found myself irritated by the events happening to the main character and was frustrated by her demure responses to the authority figures surrounding her, which I believe is the author Lakisha Spletzer’s intentions.

You actually feel sorry for the main character and can’t help but wish she would run away from the many threats and boundaries her life designates. She is treated harshly and like a child by every adult surrounding her.

The romance between Laylah and Donil, is a simple teenage love affair but is quite confusing as Donil seems to also interact with Laylah as though she is a child and unable to make her own choices.

Living in the world of the future Laylah is unloved by her father and showcased like a prize asset, controlled and manipulated. She is also unaware of the real world surrounding her, which is filled with Were-creatures of all different species fighting for power and she seems to be the main puppet in their many business dealings.

The end of the book leaves the reader hanging and wanting more as it finishes with an intense cliff hanger. I immediately picked up the second book Dusk Conspiracy to find out what was going to happen next.

I have read two of Lakisha's books and really enjoyed both of them. I like the complexity brought about by the were-council's internal politics and the conspiracy stuff with Laylah's dad/business partner/ etc. And, of course, I like the sweet love story between Laylah and Donil. The only thing I didn't like (which I tried to get myself to like by reminding myself that Laylah's wolf is an omega ((blah blah blah)) as the book reminds us) is her utter lack of gumption for almost 2 whole books. Even her acts of rebellion are planned out by someone else. Finally she defends herself but she really can't remember it. I think I'm more frustrated of her than Donil who seems to want her to grow a backbone too. But I'm hoping this is a big part of book number three, which I'm looking forward too and of course will buy. Keep writing Lakisha, I need you for my rainy day book binges! :)

Henry Le Croix is a man who demands obedience. He doesn’t care what others want. He only cares about his wants and what he wants is for his daughter to not put a wrinkle in his plan. Laylah has four months of school left then she graduates. She sees freedom in her future. A future of college and Donil but her father has plans for her future that he hasn’t shared with her. Her father has signed a contract with his business partner alpha Yon that will keep Laylah from fulfilling her dreams. She is once again placed at the mercy of her father’s will and he isn’t having any arguments. She is basically trapped. Now the rush is on to save her from the future her father has planned for her. Is there any hope for her? The time is running out and everyone has choices to make. Donil has to choose between alpha duties and saving Laylah. Jacques has to choose between following his alpha or conscience. Stefan has to choose between staying on the sidelines or rushing in. Laylah’s happiness depends on everyone elses choices. She has no choice.
I went right into the second book after finishing the first. This book finds Laylah asserting herself a little bit more. Henry has a plan in place that he is not being up front about. Donil is not living up to my expectations. Jacques is making me question whether he really has Laylah’s best interests. Britta is still the constant friend who never wavers in her support of Laylah. A character who came on the canvas in the first book but was not a big player is now taking up some major story line. Laylah’s grandmere comes for a visit and Laylah does not benefit from it. The bully, Violet, has a new role and is still just as mean. The council is turning out to be ruthless. Stefan keeps tabs on Laylah from a distant but by the end he is forced to take action to help Laylah.
I had a lot of hope for this second book. The story had me turning the pages all afternoon until I reached the last word. My only disappointment is that it ended without giving me the outcome to a very intense event. Book 3 will have to come soon because I am dying to find out what happened. I liked that the story kept moving along with twists and turns that had me questioning everyone’s motives. I thought that Laylah’s life would get a little better because she seemed to have a lot of questions from her ordeal in the first book. I was disappointed that she really didn’t do that much to find the answers to her questions. It wasn’t until nearly the end of this book that she is blind sided with the information that she is a were and so are most of the people she knows. Her father is more diabolical than the first book let on. The layer of physical abuse is added to the emotional abuse that Laylah already suffers at the hand of her father. That was a little hard to read. The good thing about Laylah in this story is she is starting to be more assertive. This is due partly to one of her guardians not giving her the serum that keeps her were side under control. We finally see this passionate, confident side to Laylah but it only scratches the surface. Every time Laylah tried to assert herself her father squashed it like a bug. I was a little bit disappointed in Donil. He is supposed to be alpha which in my mind means confidence. Twice he neglects Laylah because his pride took a hit for not being able to protect Laylah. Donil loves her but he treats her like a precious breakable thing. He kind of helps keep her from coming out of her shell all the while saying that he wants to help build her confidence.
