ARC Review: Perfect Lies by Kiersten White
Annie and Fia are ready to fight back.
The sisters have been manipulated and controlled by the Keane Foundation for years, trapped in a never ending battle for survival. Now they have found allies who can help them truly escape. After faking her own death, Annie has joined a group that is plotting to destroy the Foundation. And Fia is working with James Keane to bring his father down from the inside.
But Annie's visions of the future can't show her who to trust in the present. And though James is Fia's first love, Fia knows he's hiding something. The sisters can rely only on each other - but that may not be enough to save them.
Kiersten White continues to be one of my favorite authors. I started her Paranormalcy trilogy a few years ago and fell in love with it. It's one of my favorite trilogies of all time. The Mind Games duology might even be better than the Paranormalcy trilogy.
Perfect Lies was a great sequel to Mind Games. I have to admit, the beginning of the book left me very confused. For the first twenty percent, I had very little idea what was happening. That could be because it had been a couple months since I had read the first book. However, once I had gotten past the twenty percent mark, things started to foow more smoothly. I had a better understanding of what was happening. The plot became more intriguing.
The jumping back and forth in the time line took a bit of getting used to again. Once I got used to it, I think it made the story more interesting. I enjoyed finding out things that one character would know before the other. It was interesting to see how Annie's visions shaped Fia's future and vice versa.
I enjoyed most of the characters. My favorite was Mae aka Pixie. I just loved her personality. She was very spunky and sarcastic. I also liked the way she instantly jived with Fia. They fit so well together, and make for some very entertaining moments. After the ending, I'm confused about how I should feel about James. I still think that he's a jerk. However, I'm not sure how big of a jerk he is.
The ending left me a little confused. I know what happened. However, the way it was written made the details a little confusing. Even though I was confused by Perfect Lies at times, I still greatly enjoyed it. Kiersten White continues to be one of my favorite authors.
I give Perfect Lies: 4/5.
