Summary

How do you live with yourself when you’ve deceived the one you love? How do you move on when the person you’ve been fighting to save betrays you?

Two years ago, Maggie Stevens began the hunt.Four weeks ago, Maggie’s world fell apart, when she finally found what she’d been looking for. And when Quentin, who had blindly trusted her, unravelled her web of lies.

Now, Maggie lives in the dark. But she’s not about to stay there.Not when she still has to bring M-Corp down.Not when there is still a chance she could win him back.

Fantastic Book, Mediocre Narrator

What did you love best about Corruption?

The storyline was compelling. The characterization was also fantastic. Jessica Shirvington does a fantastic job capturing Maggie's emotions, transforming her from a shut-off vigilante eager to save her father into a heroine worthy of deep love and respect.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I loved several characters, including Maggie and Quentin. While Maggie is very rough around the edges, she's quite vulnerable and fascinating to follow. I also enjoyed watching Quentin's rise from spoiled rich kid to a hero in his own right.

How could the performance have been better?

Hannah Morris tries, she really does. Unfortunately, she hasn't quite kicked the Australian accent. She also ends many of her sentences in a question. This is very disorienting, because Maggie most certainly isn't a questioning character. She's a point-blank, this-is-how-it's-gonna-be character. By ending her sentences with a question, Morris detracts from Maggie's characterization. Further, Morris often lapses into a monotone, and many of her characters sound exactly the same. I'm not sure why Quentin's kick ass mother sounds so darn sweet, or why Morris can't at least attempt a deeper voice for the guys.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

They thought they'd won ... she proved them wrong.
