The Liar’s Knot does everything I loved in The Mask of Mirrors but even better. These books are long, and they feel long to read, so I can’t say I flew through it, but I did rarely want to put it down. From the first page there was so much happening and many questions I was eager to find answers to. I appreciate that M.A. Carrick didn’t keep harping on the same mysteries they set up in The Mask of Mirrors, but actually gave us answers, and then new puzzles to solve. There are connections throughout, of course, but I hate when a series keeps me wondering the same thing forever and ever (and ever) in an attempt to keep me engaged. There’s none of that here; Nadezra has more than enough mysteries to go around.
