February 18th 2014 by HarperTeen


Annie and Fia are ready to fight back.

The sisters have been manipulated and controlled by the Keane Foundation for years, trapped in a never ending battle for survival. Now they have found allies who can help them truly escape. After faking her own death, Annie has joined a group that is plotting to destroy the Foundation. And Fia is working with James Keane to bring his father down from the inside.

But Annie's visions of the future can't show her who to trust in the present. And though James is Fia's first love, Fia knows he's hiding something. The sisters can rely only on each other - but that may not be enough to save them.


My Review

I loved the first book in this duology, Mind Games, so I was super excited to get Perfect Lies and finally find out what happens to sisters Fia and Annie. I was not disappointed.

The book picks up exactly where the last one left off and so you're right back in the thick of things. It is a little bit of mayhem. No one knows exactly who they can trust or what to believe and how to fix things. Annie doesn't know if Fia is still on her side, but she has a tough time not trusting her sister who has always been there for her before.

I love how flawed these characters are, but how hard they are working to make things right. I loved Annie in this second book much more than I did in the first one. Some of that might be because we get to see a different side of her. I also loved the romance that springs up for her. It was perfect. That is also another thing I loved about this series - the romance didn't take over. It's there, but it's a part of the whole picture, not the whole picture itself.

There were some seriously intense moments! Fia was about to drive me crazy with the thoughts and the tapping. White did an amazing job of really getting us in both of the sisters' heads and letting us feel what they're feeling, not just telling us. I actually started to doubt Fia a little. I was afraid she was putting her trust where she shouldn't. I also was on the edge of my seat to find out how things would end. Let me tell you, it was a crazy good ending!!!

If you enjoyed the first book in this series, Kiersten White's other books, YA SciFi or Parnormal books, then I would definitely recommend Perfect Lies.

Content: There is some mild swearing and innuendo, but I would say it's fairly clean.
