I really liked Besphinxed! Having never read any of Alethea Kondis' books I had no preconceived notions as to how the story line would go. But having read quite a number of the Nocturne Falls books both by Kristen Painter and her author friends, I knew the general gist of the town and its citizens. That being said, I thought adding another book into the NFU (Nocturne Falls Universe) with a nod to Ancient Egypt and some Greek aspects would be an interesting twist. I was not disappointed. Alethea spun a creative story in such a way that the reader knows but doesn't really know how the outcome would be. I can't wait to read more of Alethea"s books and hope that everyone who picks this one up enjoys it as much as I did!
