The blurb for Family of Lies: Sebastian convinced me to give this book a try. I’m so glad I did!
While I sometimes got lost because the cast of characters was enormous—not uncommon for high fantasy but I still struggled to understand all the connections—the story held my interest throughout.
The plot wasn’t difficult and I guessed early on what the curse was but that didn’t detract from my enjoyment. Sebastian was grumpy and snarky and tried so hard not to fall for Turren, the prince. Turren, on the other hand never ceased to woo Sebastian. These two guys were highly amusing together, plus I loved it when Sebastian finally gave in and admitted his feelings.
Sebastian’s family was a strange troop with lots of memorable characters. Some of them got on my nerves after a while but in the end everyone proved how important family is to them.
If you’re looking for a fun read, this story is for you. Five stars frome me, therefore definitely a recommended read!
