Earlier this year I read Witch Dance by Elizabeth Burgess It’s a young adult fantasy novel completely different to the Counterplay series In fact the two couldn’t be different if they had tried Having enjoyed Witch Dance I was interested to see what the Counterplay series was like After all the entire notion of the Counterplay series really pulled me in from the moment I set my eyes upon itThus I went ahead and investigated the series Through the author’s website I came upon her short story Monster I downloaded it enjoyed it and went to write up a review When I went to write up a review I found it wasn’t online there was nowhere for me to post said review Thus I contacted Elizabeth Burgess to see whether she would be adding the book to Goodreads I mean I needed to share the excitement the short story had built within me I needed people to know that a very short story had me excited for what was to comeIt turns out Monster is to be part of a short story boxset that is to be released sometime next year I was saddened that it wouldn’t be appearing alone anywhere yet I was pleased to know there’d be a collection of short stories relating to this series In addition to explaining this Elizabeth Burgess offered to let me read Misaligned It’s a short preuel story giving us an insight into the soap opera that is to comeIntroducing us to the main characters and some of the dark deeds to come Misaligned uickly pulls you into the Counterplay world We don’t know everything there is to know – but we are introduced to some of the big players and events We know who is out for revenge we know who is involved in twisted forms of revenge and we’re left wanting It’s a great introduction to the series one that will leave you wanting to grab Misdirection and the rest of the series as soon as you canIf deceit backstabbing and twisted characters are your thing I’m positive you’ll love this story as it gives an insight into what promises to be a very powerful series As a final note I would like to once again thank Elizabeth Burgess for allowing me to read this in exchange for a review Whilst I cannot wait to see what comes next in Hopewell Coven series I think a part of me is a bit excited for this one Millie and NashMillie was once married to Nash's dad He was unfaithful and left her for another woman However she remains really close to him son Nash They both have strong feelings for one another but never acting on itThey are both out for revenge against Nashs dad and that is what drives Millie They are all doctors and Millie has a plan thats sure to rake in the money But what will happen along the way with Bob who was in the plan with Millie he seems very unstable and not a very nice manAlot of uestions which you need to know the answers toIt was unlike any other book ive read and thats what i enjoy You do not know what to expect with a storyline like this because its uniue 'Misaligned' was an awesome novella that explains uite a bit whether you read it first or between the following books in the 'Counterplay Series' Nash and Millie have such a bond They are considered beautiful and forbidden to each other But their friendship and devotion are unbridled Bob is still a creep I think he was hatched that way This storyline was well written and the way it played out gave me a sense to some of the reasons and actions that occur in the books thereafter A great add to your tbr list The whole series is a must read I downloaded The foundation as a free novella from Interesting set up for the Waiting series I can't say I liked any of the characters but I loved to hate them Machiavellian back stabbing at its best Each character seems to have his or her own motivation and is willing to manipulate circumstances to get what they want And the Operation is an intriguing and frankly terrifying idea For those who like their thrillers with a huge dose of evil family machinations have I got a recommendation for you Loved this addition to the story It explains how the Operation started and you can get a closer look at how much Millie cared about Nash and we also see Nash's true feelings I love reading about their forbidden love They are definitely one of my favorite couples in the story This is definitely a must read if you are a fan of this series Will recommend to my friends This is an excellent addition to the series It explains so much that happens right before the first book Things like how everyone got started in the Operation the forbidden love stories and lots about this dysfunctional family I got to read an earlier version of this book sent by the author but I also bought the book Great start to a series I'm now hooked on a new to me author Thanks Elizabeth for the intriguing story I can't wait to read OMG WOW I am so glad I
