Book Review: Thief of Lies by Brenda Drake
Goodreads Summary: Gia Kearns would rather fight with boys than kiss them. That is, until Arik, a leather clad hottie in the Boston Athenaeum, suddenly disappears. While examining the book of world libraries he abandoned, Gia unwittingly speaks the key that sucks her and her friends into a photograph and transports them into a Paris library, where Arik and his Sentinels—magical knights charged with protecting humans from the creatures traveling across the gateway books—rescue them from a demonic hound.
Jumping into some of the world's most beautiful libraries would be a dream come true for Gia, if she weren’t busy resisting her heart or dodging an exiled wizard seeking revenge on both the Mystik and human worlds. Add a French flirt obsessed with Arik and a fling with a young wizard, and Gia must choose between her heart and her head, between Arik's world and her own, before both are destroyed
Thief of Lies is a wonderful fantasy that has a plot that is engaging from beginning to end. One of the main reasons why I loved this book is because I'm a librarian and to be able to jump into different worlds (literally) would be amazing.
After Gia is sucked into a book and transports to Paris she finds some interesting discoveries and realize that her life will never be the same. There are knights that are called Sentinels that protect humans from different creatures. With the perils rising Gia and her friends are in the middle of danger.
Gia is a strong character and I loved her. She loves the library and she has a bit of tomboyish in her. I felt all the characters were easy to connect with as well.
The plot and the world building was great. I felt that I could find myself right there with the characters because it felt real. I liked the romance in the story but I don't care for the love triangle and I didn't too much like the insta-love. Other than that I enjoyed reading this story and I look forward to the next.
