it was amazing
bookshelves: fantasy

I've been super excited about this book ever since I heard about it months ago, so I jumped at the chance to read it! I actually chose THIEF OF LIES as the first book that I wanted to read for 2016, and it was an absolutely wonderful choice! I loved it so, so much, and I've been raving about it ever since! :D

When I first heard about THIEF OF LIES, I was immediately compelled! It reminded me of the movie, The Pagemaster, which I still remember fondly from my childhood. I've always loved the idea of travelling through books, and the library is one of my favourite places...add in a bit of romance, even more magic, an amazing main character, and it just gets better and better!

As soon as I started reading, I didn't want to put THIEF OF LIES down. I loved Gia for her awkwardness with boys, for her tomboy-ish nature, and for her major love of reading, books and libraries. She is most definitely a kindred spirit. :P I especially loved discovering more about the world of Sentinels and the gateway books! It was all so fascinating! I also have a serious, serious soft spot for Arik...the book description is definitely not lying about him. The boy is most assuredly a "leather clad hottie"⎯and I ship him and Gia so freaking much! haha

Along with a fantastic premise and a wonderful main character, THIEF OF LIES, is packed full of some amazing characters. I loved getting to know Gia's friends from home, and really enjoyed getting to know the other sentinels, too. The world-building was also fantastic. I loved how the different intricacies of the sentinels world were revealed, and the magical aspects were so amazing! And the battle orbs were so neat! :D I think if I had to pick some kind of "supernatural" being that I would like to be, a sentinel would be high on that list. ;)

Overall, I absolutely loved THIEF OF LIES! It was such a fantastic story, and I got completely wrapped up in Gia's world. I can't wait to read what happens next!! :D
