“Still, children hope in ways adults find hard to imagine. They carry their dreams before them, fragile, in both arms, waiting for the world to trip them.”
The general plot arc of The Liar's Key was exactly what i was expecting. A path followed by the protagonists, giving both to them & to the readers a solid foundation to carry on into their ultimate goal. Throughout the book there is a feeling of impending disaster, while there're enough new elements to keep your interest, but not so many that you get overwhelmed or confused. This, together with the propulsive narrative and imagery that is constantly turning stark, morbid, nostalgic & subtly threatening, comes together to create an epos.
