Magic for Liars Magic for Liars by Sarah Gailey is $2.99! This is a fantasy novel where a non-magical heroine investigates a magical murder.

It seemed unfair to review the first in Kiersten White’s Slayer series and not hit the second one when it came out. The completist part of my brain could not let that one stand. Chosen picks up an undetermined amount of time after the events of Slayer, with Nina turning the castle that housed what remained of the Watcher’s Council into a sanctuary for non-lethal, mostly non-evil demons. Her sister has gone into the wind with her girlfriend, and Nina is trying to build a relationship with her distant mother. This book likely does not work unless you have read Slayer, as most of the characters were introduced therein, and much of the action and character development hinges on events that took place in it.
