One of my favorite books from last year was Thief of Lies, so I’ve been eager anticipating the sequel. While the actual book isn’t being released until February 7th, 2017, here is the exquisite cover and a brief synopsis to tide Brenda’s fans over. Oh, and if you haven’t read the first book, please check out my review at:


If you love books and libraries, and YA fantasy I encourage you to try this!


Being a Sentinel isn’t all fairytales and secret gardens.

Sure, jumping through books into the world’s most beautiful libraries to protect humans from mystical creatures is awesome. No one knows that better than Gia Kearns, but she could do without the part where are always trying to kill her. Oh, and the fact that Pop and her had to move away from her friends and life as she knew it.ย 

And if that isn’t enough, her boyfriend Arik, is acting strangely. Like, maybe she should be calling him “ex”, since he’s so into another girl. But she doesn’t have time to be mad or even jealous, because someone has to save the world from the upcoming apocalypse, and it looks like that’s going to be Gia.

Maybe. If she survives.


Brenda Drake grew up the youngest of three children, an Air Force brat, and the continual new kid at school. Her fondest memories growing up is of her eccentric, Irish grandmother’s animated tales, which gave her a strong love for storytelling. So it was only fitting that she would choose to write stories with a bend toward the fantastical. When she’s not writing or hanging out with her family, she haunts libraries, bookstores, and coffee shops, or reads someplace quiet and not at all exotic (much to her disappointment).
