This is book two in the ‘Mind Games’ duology. I didn’t enjoy it quite as much as Mind Games, but it was still a good read.
The story is told from alternating POVs of sisters Annie and Fia and picks up where Mind Games left off. It’s very tense because Annie’s POV is happening before Fia’s, so it gets a bit mind-boggling at times, but it does come together well at the end.
I really liked Annie and Fia as characters: Annie gets a lot stronger in Perfect Lies and Fia still struggles to know right from wrong.
“Sometimes you scare me.”
“That’s because you don’t really know me yet.” I hold out my hand to her. “When you really know me, I’ll scare you all the time.”
Kiersten White’s writing is kind of austere and you are left to fill in a lot of gaps in description yourself. I quite liked this, though as I think some books can go overboard on cinematic descriptions.
All in all this was a satisfying conclusion to Annie and Fia’s story.
