Blog Tour: Disemblance by Shanae Branham (Review & Giveaway)

disemblance tour 

Welcome to another blog tour!!


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.

I am a professional writer with a bachelor’s degree in creative writing and a minor in grammar. I have also attended several years of classes and workshops in screenplay writing at the Los Angeles Screenplay writer’s Expo.

I love suspense thrillers and am a master at plot and character development. I enjoy stories with happy endings. I promise all my readers that when they put one of my books down or walk away from one of my movies, they will be enthused with excitement and joy. This does not mean there will not be some sad parts, because you have to feel the bitter in order to understand the sweet. In fact, I have struggled with Dyslexia my whole life, so you can imagine how overjoyed I was when DiSemblance won a Silver metal in the fantasy/science fiction category at the eLit awards in 2012.



 My thoughts:

The synopsis of this book sounded interesting, so I was looking forwards to reading this.
The storyline I find is a weird one. From what I could gather, it contained mystery, a little romance, confusion, some futuristic things and murder.
I found as I was reading along (when I understood what was going on), something happened which malfunctioned my brain for a little, and I then ended up confused. 
Part of me still doesn't know what happened, ha ha. 
The title DiSemblance suited the title as it was about people being concealed behind a false appearance. 
The writing was easy to understand and straightforward. It was also factual. This suited it because it was like solving a case.
The story is written in second person and the chapters have a decent length. The book is also split into parts. 
The characters were all developed OK.
I like the cover to the book because it's like reflections. It gives off an ambient feeling, with the water-like colour.
The beginning of the book was good as I wanted to know about the murders.
The ending made me have hope that it had all come to an end. 
Overall I gave this book three out of five stars because it was a good murder mystery. However stuff was happening that was confusing me a lot of the time. 
I recommend this if you like murder-mystery thrillers with a futuristic twist.

Happy reading =)
