Review: Allie Therin's LIAR CITY.
Thanks to Harlequin Publicity Team and Harlequin Books for the complimentary hard-copy and the publisher & Netgalley for the complimentary e-ARC. All opinions provided are my own.
Where are my urban fantasy lovers at?
If you’re an Ilona Andrews devotee, Allie Therin’s Liar City is definitely something to check out. Book 1 in a series, this has a slow burn that has barely started heating & I’m so invested in seeing where it goes.
Reece Davies is an empath in a world that largely fears them & their abilities. His abilities are both a beautiful thing & something that costs him—including when he wants to help his police officer sister solve a murder at the beginning of the book.
From the beginning, the mystery Reece is embroiled in is complicated, with many players & secrets. Helping Reece along in his journey (also arresting Reece, questioning Reece, frustrating Reece) is a terrifying figure called The Dead Man, aka Evan Grayson.
Liar City is a great first book in this series with quality banter between leads & a compelling murder mystery. It does feel a bit too big sometimes—as in trying to cover too much, include too much—in this book, but that might also have been my mood.
But I’m such a fan of Allie Therin’s writing & I can’t wait to see when things finally start catching fire between the leads!
4⭐️. Out now!
CWs: death, violence, pain.
