DiSemblance By: Shanae Branham Review

Author: Shanae Branham
Pages: 369
Rating: 3.5/5
A copy was given to me by the author in exchange for an honest review                                           
     Jason Tanner’s life has always been different from the ordinary citizen’s. It started when he was an infant and his parents were only teenagers. A computer science prodigy, Lloyd attended MIT but left a pariah in the eyes of the school’s dean—but a computer physics genius in the eyes of his primary investor. Then his theories and ideas created a holographic machine and their world shrunk as contact with the outside world became less and less frequent. A computer prodigy now himself, Jason is about to learn that the world never waits for you if you have the ability to change it: it will come for you.                                                                                    
     Detective Bruce Durante has been handed the case of the Comfort Killer, a serial killer so named because he appears to abduct terminally ill patients before returning their corpses to their families in refrigerated coffins. When he picks up the trail, it leads straight to the home of Lloyd Tanner.                                                                                                     
Jason has been living life through the world of Lloyd’s invention and wishing he could carry on a relationship with Boston, the beautiful girl next door. When his father is murdered and framed as the Comfort Killer, he is brought back to reality in a hurry. He is forced to destroy all of the planted evidence—and finds he is being targeted as the killer’s new fall guy. But the secrets of his father’s invention run deep and Jason, his brother Isaac,Boston, the Comfort Killer, and Detective Durante hurtle towards one another on a deadly collision course that leaves everyone’s life hanging in the balance.

     DiSemblance was a very different kind of read for me- I haven't really read anything quite like it before (and I mean that in the best possible way)! It's almost as if the author took a futuristic-thriller movie and put it into words- making it a great choice for both the guys and the gals! 

     What was my favourite part about DiSemblance? Definitely the fast pace! Each chapter is fairly short and moves along quickly- adding a unique action element to the entire book that makes it hard to stop reading.  There's not one dull moment, because there's always something going on !

     The book is told through two different POV's- Jason and Bruce's. Being able to read through these two characters' perspectives really works for this book. Both of these characters have very different roles in the plot of the story- they have no relationship with one another so it really gives you a feel for how two people can see the same situation in two very different ways. 

     For those of you that may be wondering whether or not there is a love component to this book, I'm glad to say that there is- but it is a very small component. The love story isn't in any way a dominant part of the plot...more like an added bonus for romantics like me! 

     The last third of the book is when things start to hit an all time high, and surprises start popping out of nowhere! Despite the fast pace, once I reached the end,  I was very satisfied with how things left off! I have to admit that the last line made me sigh a bit- it was incredibly sweet and swoon-derful :P

Favourite Quotes...

"Why would I tell you? You're not real!"
"Test me," Boston said.
Jason studied Boston for a moment, "What happened on our first date?"
Boston's face melted. "You tell me, you sly devil. As far as I know you haven't asked me out on a first date."


"I still have to go after the killers," he said.
"If you didn't, you wouldn't be the man I married."


     Overall, DiSemblance was a really interesting and enjoyable read- it has encouraged me to look into other techno-thriller novels next time I'm at my local bookstore! Not only is it well written, but it is also very unique!  If your looking for a good fast paced, YA thriller then this is the book for you! Have you read DiSemblance?
