City of Lies review

I was given an ARC by NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

I love love this book! It’s paced perfectly so you don’t have to wait ages for the action to start. Kalina and Jovan are awesome characters! Jovan is an expert when it comes to poisons and he’s a proofer for the heir of Sjona Tain Caslavtash Iliri. (A proofer is someone who tastes food before it is consumed by others as a way to prevent poisonings). Jovan also has a serious case of OCD which made him very relatable to me. Kalina is Jovan’s sister and she’s somewhat of a spy. The cast resides in Silasta a city soon under siege by rebels. Soon Jovan and Kalina learn that they can’t trust anyone as betrayal is lurking around every corner.

I love the pacing of the story there’s no long wait for action and there’s never a dull moment.  Though we do have to wait a while before the spirits show themselves. The world building is also done really well. The story itself is a mix between the fantasy and mystery genre which makes it so unique. Honor down best debut of the year for me!

I also highly recommend the audiobook version the narration is excellent!
