Daughter of Lies

4 Stars

This is the fourth book in the Andari Chronicles by Kenley Davidson. This is my favorite book of the series so far. I have always loved books about spies for some reason, and I loved Brenna from the Traitor’s masque so I was happy to see her get her own book. This was really fun and I enjoyed the return to Andar, which we hadn’t seen in the last few books. I enjoy the magic of the other worlds, but I’m finding that I enjoy more of Kenley Davidson’s books in which it is not as prevalent. I really enjoyed seeing Brenna in her element, and also seeing her realize that living as a noble was not staying true to herself and who she was as a person. I also thought the portrayal of Louise’s love for Kyril showed that sometimes there is a limit to how far a mother’s love should go. I just wish she hadn’t died. I feel like it would have been more powerful if she had had to face what she had done. The thing that bothered me the most about this book was that was that Rom was almost as much older to Brenna as her mother was to him, and since that was made out to be such a big gap, it didn’t make sense to me that it wouldn’t be addressed in the other case.
