The Liar's Knot, by M.A. Carrick

I loved The Mask of Mirrors, so I was so honored when I was able to get the arc of The Liar's Knot last year.  I pushed off reading this for so long because I often have an issue with sequels losing whatever it is that I loved in book one.  I am so bummed to say this book did just that...

While the book wasn't bad, there was a general lack of plot, lack of understandable motivation, and too many characters and disguises to keep track of.  I was never having a bad time, but I also was never understanding what was happening.  After about 60% of this book, I decided to DNF simply because I saw no reason to finish.  

Thanks for Orbit and Netgalley for giving me a copy of this book for an honest review,

So darn good. The plot thickens in wonderful ways and characters show their true (I hope!) colors.

Very fun, but the story near the end dragged a bit for me. However, it still has the same heart as the first one and that makes it truly amazing.

Much like the first book, it does a good job disguising the larger it in the first half.

I am so very, very angry at myself for reading the teaser for the sequel. I may actually expire waiting for the final book.

This series has been *so* damn fun.
