Book of Lies
Blurb (from Goodreads):
They are trapped, frozen. Waiting. Straining against the wood that holds them. The unwary catch a glimpse now and then - feel their desperate hunger, see a glint of red eyes - and scurry out of the shadows of the wood, back to the light.
She's coming; it will be soon.
They will run free on the moors again. The Hunt will return.
And the ground will run with blood.

An ancient curse placed on a family of witches foretells that twins will be born - one good, one evil; and one will destroy the other. But who can be trusted when no one is as they seem?

My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

Book of Lies “The truth is that I’m here to make sure she’s really dead.”

This was a YA paranormal story about twins who were separated because one of them would turn evil.

Piper and Quinn definitely had their own personalities in this book, but both of them made some poor decisions. I couldn’t quite believe how Quinn tried to go to school as Piper, and how Piper tried to use Quinn so that she could spend the night at her boyfriend’s house!

The pace in this was quite slow, and the story seemed to drag. We had the twins meeting at their mother’s funeral, and then some time where they messed about and pretended to be each other, and it took quite a while before we got to the main storyline about one of the twins being evil, and the ‘inheritance’ that one of them would receive.
There was a little bit of romance, but it did turn into a bit of a love tringle with Quinn liking Piper’s boyfriend.

The ending to this was good, and things were tied up quite nicely.

7 out of 10
