Descrizione

Sharp, mainstream fantasy meets compelling thrills of investigative noir in Magic for Liars, a fantasy debut by rising star Sarah Gailey.

Ivy Gamble was born without magic and never wanted it.

Ivy Gamble is perfectly happy with her life — or at least, she's perfectly fine.

She doesn't in any way wish she was like Tabitha, her estranged, gifted twin sister.

Ivy Gamble is a liar.

When a gruesome murder is discovered at The Osthorne Academy of Young Mages, where her estranged twin sister teaches Theoretical Magic, reluctant detective Ivy Gamble is pulled into the world of untold power and dangerous secrets. She will have to find a murderer and reclaim her sister — without losing herself.

  • (5/5)
    Like Jessica Jones meets The Magicians! I really liked it.
  • (4/5)
    It was quite slow to start but got interesting after the halfway point. The protagonist's self pity is a bit wearing, but the plot is enjoyable overall.
  • (4/5)
    Great story and great female protagonist. She could get a bit self pitying which was annoying, but I ate this book up in less than a week and really enjoyed it. The audiobook narrator was fantastic!

    The narrator really did a great job. I love the idea of a private investigator solving a murder case involving magic, but I'm not really satisfied with the ending or the truth of the case with this one. Perhaps it's because we don't know much about the possibilities or the rules of the magic in the story's world, so it feels like anything is possible. In the end, the story is more about the relationship between the characters and not so much about the murder mystery. It isn't a bad thing, but for someone who expect a murder mystery, it can be disappointing.

    A murder investigation in a magical school, from the unique perspective of a non-medical person, leads to some fun with tropes. But the real skill here is the characterization of the main character.

    I enjoyed this book overall, I'm glad I stuck with it. It started off slow and the narrator has a very dry voice and doesn't differentiate between characters very much, although she perks up as the character in the book perks up. About halfway through the plot picks up and the main character becomes more engaging. I'm anticipating sequels, there is a lot left unexplained.

    Favorite book I read this year! So well written, had me at the edge of my seat and tugged at all the right heartstrings.

    Nuanced, beautiful, and heartbreaking. So much more than either fantasy or detective story. Filled with raw emotion that’s almost palpable. Allow yourself to be taken into places in your heart that we usually keep well locked.
