"……and in the end turn the murky dangerous world of assassins into a free for all. An assassins ball so to speak. It would be fun to watch. From a distance, a very great distance.” I’m quoting from my review of Liars' Paradox, the first book in Taylor Steven’s Jack and Jill series.
I was right, for in Liars' Legacy the death of the broker, the controller of most of the world’s assassins-for-hire has turned the assassins’ world into a killing free for all. This on the part of the assassins

UPDATED: Here's the link to a longer review at Criminal Element: Review of Liars' Legacy by Taylor Stevens

I literally could not put this book down. Started it on a plane. Finished it the next day. I loved the first book in this series, LIARS PARADOX, and this is even better. Taylor Stevens goes deeper into Jack and Jill’s motivation and fears, their wants and conflicts, all while never letting up on the pace or twisting, original plot. Intense, violent, fast-paced, and totally fun. Unlike some
It was hard for me to get into this book—I found the myriad of characters and the byzantine plot confusing. Then I wasn’t really sure who were the good guys (were there any, really?). Everyone was ostensibly on someone’s hit list, or looking to kill someone else. The main characters, twins Jack and Jill, were raised by a psychopath, and are now trying to locate the father they have never met. Stevens is a good writer-- I read all of her Vanessa Michael Munroe books-- but my perception is that ...more

I wonder if one of the espionage training facilities for spies and assassins is still located at Langley? Because if it is, I feel like I could walk right in and take the written test to become a card carrying spy with a Masters in assassination just from reading the first two books in the Jack and Jill series. These books are intense; action begins on the first page and doesn't pause for breath the entire way through. Now, if you were a friend asking me about this second book in the series I ...more

Liar's Legacy starts off strong and the action continues to the last page.

I loved it.

Jack and Jill are trained killers, they are twins and they live their life like no other.

It was a fun fast paced read !! Cant wait for book 3. Sign me up !

This is book 2 in the Jack and Jill series, though you could read it as a standalone, you would get more out of Liars Legacy if you read book one.

Thanks to Net Galley and Kensington books for another great read in the Jack and Jill series.

Liar’s Legacy by Taylor Stevens
Jack & Jill Thriller #2

Though I ended up loving this book it took almost halfway into the story to finally figure out what was going on even though I had read the first book and the book description. When I finally “got it” I could not put the book down and read through the night.

What I liked:
* Jack, Jill and Holden: Intriguing intelligent and lethal people that I want to know more about.
* Jack is a bit of an enigma and yet I do like him...he seems more of a

Lots of spycraft, alliances, betrayals populate an excellent story that travels all over in a deadly game of hide and seek. Childhood angst also plays an important role as Jack and Jill do much more than fetch a pail of water. i received an advanced digital copy from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

WOW!!!!! Absolutely loved this book. Thrilling, fascinating, powerful are just a few of the adjectives to describe this book. The storyline was fast paced and exciting. The interaction between Jack, Jill, Chris and Kara was great and gives me endless possibilities for what can happen with this series. Can't wait until the next one.

I love the complexity of all of Ms. Stevens' stories! There are so many interwoven plots and subplots (in this case 7). Each plot intertwines to produce a magnificent story.

Liars' Legacy centers around the twin siblings, Jack & Jill. They have spent their entire life in turmoil. From a young age, their mother developed and drove them to be the best and fiercest. The goal was to outthink, outwork and overcome all obstacles that could possibly threaten them. They were trained to be the

Another great book in Taylor Steven's Jack and Jill series. Jack and Jill are trained twin killers; trained by their insane mother. This book is a complex thriller with multiple assassin teams hunting each other. It's helpful to know the background story of Jack and Jill from the prior book, Liars' Paradox, but nevertheless, this was a great story.

This is the second book in a series. It works as a stand alone but I think I would have been less confused if I had read the first. To say this book is about espionage would be an understatement. It reads like an espionage, assassin, evasion-from-detection how-to manual. It was a good read but I will say it was a difficult read for many reasons. First, it took 49% of the book to set up a pivotal meeting and it took me that long to figure out what was going on. There were so many assassin teams ...more

So I've read a few other reviews of this book, including people who were sent ARCs in exchange for a review (I am not one of them). The words I read most often in those reviews were some version of "this is confusing." After reading Liars Legacy for myself, I have to agree BUT with a coda to the other reviews: this is a THRILLER, people, not a cozy mystery. You are SUPPOSED to be confused. A thriller usually starts off bang in the middle of the action or incident of some sort, and from then on ...more

Thanks to Kensington Books and NetGalley for providing me a copy of this book for this honest review.

Jack and Jill are back in the second book in Taylor Steven’s new series (after Liars’ Paradox). These 26-year-old twins have been trained by their mother to always be on the run and to protect themselves from any difficult situation. This second book is as much a continuation of the first book as it is a sequel. In following what was discovered at the end of the last book, the twins are on their

This *could* be read as a standalone, but if I'm being honest the action starts RIGHT FROM THE OPEN and it's complex with several players, and I feel like you would be more comfortable sliding right into the story if you read Liars' Paradox first.
Otherwise the first 1/3 of the book might be a bit confusing as you try to figure out the main players, as it picks up just past where the last book finished, which I LOOOVE.

In the first book, I found the main characters more intriguing, interesting,

Taylor Stevens' books aren't for everyone, but if you like "high-octane psychological thrillers," LIARS' LEGACY is a page turner!

The second installment in Stevens' Jack and Jill series, LIARS' LEGACY picks up right where Liars' Paradox leaves off. Jack and Jill (who are known by a myriad of different names) are killer-for-hire twins who travel to Europe to meet the father they've never known. Their psychotic assassin mother may or may not be behind their secretive journey. What we know for sure

This is one of the most confusing thrillers Stevens has ever written. The action never lets up but it's unclear exactly what's going on, who the bad guys and girls are and who's the target of the multiple teams of assassins deployed to Frankfurt,Berlin, Prague, and ultimately an amusement park in San Antonio. A brother and sister pair who've been raised by a justifiably paranoid mother whose lessons in survival have kept them alive long enough to search for the father they've never met are the ...more
I really enjoyed this sequel to Liars' Paradox! It picks up just about immediately after the events of the first book's conclusion and like the first one, is action-packed from start to finish! The training that the twins' mother/mentor gave them helps them navigate the aftermath of the first book as they begin to track down their birth father.

But, this one adds plenty of plotting from outside agencies - namely between Russia and the US. New, but likable, characters are introduced. This really

I am finished with this series. This book had a convoluted story line, lots of running around, subterfuge and no real substance. I honestly have no clue what happened. A waste of characters and a potential great followup to the first book. Sorry I wasted my time but I surely thought it would get better. It did not.

Another fast-paced novel by Ms. Stevens that makes politics seem even more so like a big game. Who is pulling the strings for real and who thinks they are pulling the strings?

Looking forward to the next one.
