Review: Liar by C.L. Stone

Check out my review of Thief (The Scarab Beetle Series #1) I absolutely adored Book One, Thief, and I couldn’t wait to see what happened next for Kayli and the boys. Liar wasn’t quite as action packed as book one, but it definitely was as interesting and engaging. There was definitely a lot of action in this installment–this time, set in Florida on a supposedly easy mission gone complicated. This book also had a lot more emotional drama than book one–Kayli is getting deeper into the works of the Academy, but the return of our favorite billionaire playboy, Blake, brings some doubts to the surface, turning Kayli’s life into one big mystery. Kayli got a bit annoying at times in this novel. She let the doubt that Blake implanted into her mind manifest and it made her do some stupid things. But other than that, she was just as tough and fearless as always.

This novel was definitely full of action and thrills. Kayli, a poor girl forced to pickpocket to provide for her younger brother, is basically stalked by a group of boys working for the Academy. They need her services, and offer her something too good to resist. So Kayli falls in with this group of boys who take a liking to her, and pick pockets from a guy that they think is bad news. But Kayli gets too close, and suddenly, there’s people after her and she has to go into hiding. But Kayli won’t lay low for too long. As I mentioned, this novel was thrilling. Between the secret Academy, the possible drug ring, and Kayli being in possible danger, I was never bored. I really like the incorporation of a secret, spy-like association (the Academy) and the boys involved in it. It made it different from the other few […]
