After a promising start, Knight brings everything to a nice boil for the middle part of this trilogy; Legends and Liars moves fast, and possibly goes further than you'd think. But it also amply demonstrates why Knight can resolve things you might have thought she'd save for the end. The world and situation are detailed and complicated enough that everything our protagonists (and their enemies, allies and more ambiguous companions) do winds up spiralling into new problems and wrinkles. After a promising start and a thrilling middle, it'll be interesting to see how this series ends.
With roguish highwaymen and all the intrigue of a bloody revolution, this book will keep you guessing until the end. I can't wait to read the sequel!
As Knight launches her Duellists trilogy, she skillfully reveals the backstories of the siblings and Egimont, and how Reyes has come to the brink of revolution, illuminating a complex and intriguing world. The accelerating pacing as the present and past converge will hold readers in suspense and eager for the next two books, which will be released in November and December.
