Book Review: City of Lies by Sam Hawke

Rating: 5 out of 5.

I bought this thinking it looked good quite a while ago, but didn’t get around to reading it until I was granted an arc of the second book just a few weeks before its publication date. Of course, that’s when I realized each was 500+ pages. Whoops.

I was surprised to find that a 500+ book page could be entirely about a siege because… there wouldn’t seem to be that much to write about. But there were also murders and poisonings and sabotage and treachery and backstabbing and religion vs. science and other fun things. There was just also a siege going on at the same time.

I really enjoyed the alternating POV between brother and sister Jovan and Kalina. The cast of characters were engaging and interesting and I enjoyed my time with all of them.

While this took a lot longer to read than my most recent reads, it was completely riveting the entire time and I look forward to diving into the next one.
