"Fans of complicated puzzles and mystery will be satisfied."
"The Liar’s Knot is a notch above its predecessor in terms of storytelling and characterization [...] this series is going to be one of the strongest to come out in the next few years [...] Do yourself a favor and check it out."
"The plot is twisty and turning and filled with schemes and schemers, schemes within schemes, secret identities, betrayals and seeming betrayals, true revelations and false revelations, misconstrued motivations, changes of heart, and more."
"The Liar’s Knot is an intense, totally engrossing read that moves forward the series through quite dramatic developments and that keeps the reader enthralled with its many twists and revelations, very effectively giving the lie to the notion that a series’ middle book tends to be weaker: with the foundations laid by the saga so far, we can only expect an explosive conclusion, and I am more than looking forward to it."
"The Liar's Knot is an immensely satisfying follow-up to The Mask of Mirrors; if you have any affection at all for that first book, you must hop to the sequel immediately. Rook & Rose is quickly cementing its place in my Favorite Series of All Time list, and the final book cannot get here soon enough!"
"Such a compelling story with just the right blend of action, intrigue, and political maneuvering mixed with lots of magic and FASHION and BAKED GOODS"
"Marie Brennan and Alyc Helms—who write jointly under the pen name “M.A. Carrick”—are masters. I reread passages not because I had to but because I wanted to."
"The Rook & Rose trilogy is overflowing with secrets, lies, and so much subterfuge and I have been loving every second of it."
"Filled with tension, flirtation, banter, intrigue and some of the most beautifully described outfits I have ever read, it’s hard not to get swept away by the story."
"This book is every bit as full of intrigue, fashion, flirtation, and swashbuckling as the first book was."
"Carrick keeps the reader guessing but also delivers the drama we want and deserve."
"The Liar’s Knot does everything I loved in The Mask of Mirrors but even better. "
"The Liar’s Knot left me feeling the way of Mask of Mirrors did, in that I am now eagerly awaiting the next book in this enchanting and engaging world. Fans of the first book will not be disappointed!"
"I absolutely adored in this one."
"All our characters – not just Ren – still have plenty of secrets to be revealed."
"The Liar’s Knot is a brilliant sequel which delves into character development, world-building, magic, and conflicts. The revelations in this book are as shocking as the ones in this first book."
"What I love about this trilogy is how lush and utterly intricately detailed the world is."
"Phenomenal second installment in a magical series that takes everything you loved about book one and then gives you EVEN more"
