Review: The Liar Charms


About the book: Remy’s been kidnapped. Sent to auction! And she doesn’t have the vaguest idea why.
But intractable businessman Isaiah Grommet knows, knows what he’s purchased, knows what Remy was bred for, knows what she is: a Liar Charm. Some training from Pakken, Inc., and Remy will be invaluable to his billionaire’s empire.
Voluntary or not.
But hipster Remy has her own snarkily colorful ideas about enslaved servitude and she’s NOT seeking corporate approval.
So as long as Pakken doesn’t find out what Remy REALLY is, what Isaiah accidentally did that regrettably requires her immediate execution, Remy might just land it all smack in the Hudson!
Either way, get ready for Charmocalypse, Isaiah!

Review: Woohoo! New book review. Always the best part of my week! I received a copy of The Liar Charms off of NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review, and that’s what I shall give. First off, I reallllyyy enjoyed this book. It was well written, fast paced (I read in just two sittings), and left me excited to see what Lorain O’Neil will come out with next.

There was a lot going on here, and the world building around the business elements were really well done and dynamic. The abilities that the Charms have was really cool too, and you’re always given just enough information to understand what’s going on, but also to keep wondering about more details. It came together really nicely.

And of course, the best part of the book had to have been Remy. This girl never gave up, and refused to surrender who she is. She had all kinds of sass and snark and used every skill she had to keep herself secure. I was rooting for her every step of the way.

One thing though… this cover definitely didn’t really give me the same thriller vibe that the blurb did, or the even the story really. So if you’re looking for an imaginative thriller with a lot going on, please feel free to ignore the cover and give the Liar Charms a try anyway.
