Book Review: Liars’ Paradox by Taylor Stevens

Finally, an utterly original concept underpinning an action story! I loved Jack and Jill – the unfolding of their back-, front- and future-stories was managed with an action-level and pacing that I found not only utterly engaging but also surprisingly clever. I must admit I didn’t expect to like this one as much as I did. Don’t misunderstand – I was looking forward to it, but assumed it’d feel like every other “pair on the run, don’t trust anyone” story. Instead I found a tale with unexpectedly interesting characters, unusual spins on the espionage concept, take-no-prisoners action, and an engaging plot that definitely left me hungry for more.

There’s great potential for a series here. There are a lot of dangling bits that could be spun into story lines and the supporting characters were every bit as compelling as the main ones.

This was a crazy-wild ride and I loved every vulgar, violent, insane minute of it! The only thing I did not love was the way things tied together a little too neatly between Jack, Jill and Clare at the high point of the action – that felt a little trite and unbelievably tidy, and it could have lost me… Fortunately it didn’t really detract from the action or pacing (beyond a minor hiccup), which built right back up to the high octane levels pre-reveal and kept the whole book a winner for me…

Thanks to NetGalley for my review copy and the introduction to what promises to be an extremely fun series!
