Thief of Lies by Brenda Drake
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
I received this free eARC from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
The title of this series is Library Jumpers - of course I wanted to read it! I love libraries and since I'm working in one, I thought I would love this book.
Turns out that just because I have the same job as the subject doesn't mean I'm going to like it. I think this could have been a major hit with me if I didn't feel left out of the conversation. There is not enough background information for me to follow along with the story. And I'm pretty decent at needing as little as possible information to get sucked into a new world.
And also, the main guy Arik? First he was giving Gia the smoldering eyes, then he is steering clear of her, and when he finds out who her parents are, within SECONDS, he decides to change his mind and smoldering eyes are back. Way too much whip lash for my tastes.
I just really did not like this book. I think the author should have included some information that would make the world make more sense and actually take the reader with her, not just TELL the reader. Because when I'm reading about something about history and factual information, I am being told the information and I feel like I'm in high school and college history classes all over again. I didn't like those type of classes...
