The Messenger rocked your world, and now she's back. But have her lies finally caught up with her?
Trust doesn't come easy for Kesh Lasota. She survived life as a slave, survived the Dreamweaver's touch, but surviving Marshal Kellee and the mysterious Talen is a whole other game, one she's not sure she's ready for.
When the three are captured by a bloodthirsty fae general sweeping through the last of Halow's human colonies, the only weapons they have left are lies. And so Kesh must pretend to be the gladiator they all expect, while Kellee is forced to fight against her, and Talen is... Well, just who is Talen when he can command soldiers with a glance and move among the fae elite as though he belongs?
Trust doesn't come easy for Kesh Lasota, neither does love. She must survive both, or everything she's fought for will be lost forever, including her men.
FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
These two Audiobooks in this series are two of the best I have ever heard, and I listen to a lot of them. The narrators are beyond brilliant. The way their emotions play off each other is raw and powerful. Then there are the added sound effects that only enhance the story. It is extraordinary the lengths this team has gone to. Why all audiobooks aren’t done like this, is beyond me, because this should be the standard.
Game of Lies is full of more intrigue, danger, action, and scandal. Kesh is so multifaceted, a killer who wants to be loved but does not know how to go about finding it. She is also on a quest to help the humans fight the Fae, but her companions don’t trust her and for a good reason.
I loved the second installment as much as the first. The only disappointment I have is the 3rd book isn’t out in Audiobook yet, and I don’t know if I can wait for it. I need to continue with this tale.
I am rating Game of Lies: A Paranormal Space Fantasy: Messenger Chronicles, Book 2 5 Boundless Stars, so far it has been a crazy journey.
