Lesserblood Lies by Ainsley Davidson

To protect her children from the despotic Trueblood, Merianne defied them by taking her girls and fleeing the planet. Even though Merianne's daughters are Lesserblood, they have the Talents. The Trueblood would train her children to use their dangerous gifts, but their methods are cruel, and Merianne would never see her girls again.

Merianne tries to give her girls a safe, quiet life, but when they befriend Thorne, a brilliant scientist, she finds herself drawn to the kind and captivating man-despite his uncanny resemblance to the Trueblood.

Thorne wants to help the girls control their emerging Talents, and he's intrigued by their mother. But just as Merianne finally accepts Thorne's help, two of her children are seized. To rescue the girls, Merianne and Thorne must risk death at the hands of the Trueblood, who will kill to protect their lies.

Reviewer: Fashionta
This is an enchanting book that is ironically named after the storyline. Set in an alternative universe, the world is ruled by the Truebloods. Merianne is a strong woman who's tried to make the most of her life, while hiding her daughters who are wanted by the Truebloods. The storyline is interesting and the hero plays a big part in making it so. The only thing I didn’t like is the fact we didn’t find out how he possessed Trueblood since they never leave the planet once they are adults. (I won’t spoil the reason as it a big part of the story)

I have to give this book fours stars. This book is one those books where you either need to read it twice to get the full meaning of the book or concentrate hard I like did on the first go. It's something different and I enjoyed it a lot.
