    Thief of Lies

    To summarize: This was an exciting book and I really enjoyed it. The whole library jumping and magic system was pretty cool. The pace is done well and kept my attention, although there are a few scenes that feel a bit rushed and a few predictable or cliché parts. The story and the unique concept really makes this book shine. I did like Gia the main character, although I would’ve liked to get more of a feel for her emotions and thoughts in certain scenes. The side characters add something to the book, but with the large cast of character and getting to know little about each of them I did have a hard time separating them at times. The world building is pretty cool and the library jumping and magic part was interesting. Although there are also a few things that remain unclear or could use a bit of elaboration. All in all it was a great book and I am curious to see how the story will continue.

    Addicting and completely entertaining

    Thief of Lies was addicting and completely entertaining. And I'm so glad that I re-read this book! You see, the first time I picked this up, I struggled connecting to the characters. The story was so much fun, but I never felt as though I was fully immersed until Bastien appeared on the pages, and well I'll talk more about him later. But this time around, it all clicked into place. I was so happy because Thief of Lies was an adorable story filled with adventure and magic! And I can't wait to see how this series unfolds! But to start, can you imagine what it would be like to jump from library to beautiful library? Well Gia and her friends accidentally jumped through a book and landed in a library in Europe. Yet it's not all ahhh this library is breathtakingly gorgeous and I'm going to sit here and read some fabulous books. They become witness to the Sentinels, who protect the libraries with magic, kill a demonic hound that almost took out Gia, our heroine. Within the group of magical knights that saved them was Arik. At first, Arik was everything I adore. Sexy, secretive, protective and with a wounded past. He had so much potential! Yet I had a love hate relationship with him. Luckily, this time around I got why he was being standoffish and cold to Gia. But at other times, he could be so sweet and charming. Yet, I never felt any electricity between Gia and Arik. Their moments together didn't leave me all smiley and giddy, so I truly don't feel like he's the right guy for Gia. Especially when he said things like the quote above. So I nicely stepped off Team Arik. Gia had a lot on her plate, and she tried her best adapt while leaving her old life temporarily behind (I can't say why, but you learn the why early on in the book). Yet it took me a while to warm up to Gia. At times, she got caught up in being jealous and boy obsessed. It came across as immature, and I wanted her to work harder on finding herself. But as I watched her deal with her new world and a new set of people/creatures I loved her resilience. Even though she kept getting thrown into situations that were way above her head, I loved how she reacted realistically while she also jumped right in to help others. Gia is someone who showed huge possibilities for growth, and I can't wait to see how much she'll learn and improve as the series progresses. I have to talk about Bastien now, or I will burst. Oh Bastien. From the first moment that he appeared on the page, I was captivated. He was a wizard who was confident, sexy and strived to do great things while dealing with a broken heart. He fascinated me. And whether it was his sense of knowing himself or knowing what he wanted, he felt so much more grown up than Arik. The words and manor that Bastien spoke to Gia always left the hugest smile on my face. He was respectful, caring and I loved that he seemed in control. So I truly hope Gia sees what I see and comes around. Please oh please don't end up with Aric by the end of this series and break my heart. Besides Bastian, Gia and Arik, we're introduced to a lot of characters who range from witches, wizards, sentinels, fae etc. On top of that, we learn about many different places and kinds of magic. But I never once felt overwhelmed or lost. We're slowly introduced with little bits of info here and there, except for a few info dumps that were relatively quick. So it was easy to take it all in. And ironically, I thought the story was somewhat simplistic a few chapters in, but I couldn't be more wrong. It continually grew and become more elaborate and layered as each chapter went by. Especially when I started to discover clues and meet people err creatures? who were bent on not only revenge, but also ruling their world and the humans world too. It was so entertaining! So I can't wait to see how the story proceeds, and here's hoping you'll join me and be on Team Bastien!
