Shelby Cooper has always been warned about dangerous situations. To say her mother is overprotective of the nearly 18 year old is an understatement. But even an overprotective mother can’t keep Shelby from being hit by a car.
When they leave the hospital, Shelby’s mother explains that they are in danger and are now on the run. As their journey takes them closer to the Grand Canyon, Shelby begins to question why they are on the run and who is after them. A mysteriou stranger named Mark and a coyote only add to Shelby’s confusion. She soon realizes that not everything in her past is the truth and that there will only be more lies along the way to finding out what is going on.
Ok, it is REALLY hard to talk about this AWESOME book without giving everything away. This book features, and relies, upon 502 different twists (give or take a few). Some, you will see coming from a mile away; others will smack you upside the head. Nick Lake has given us a tale that is suspenseful and action-packed.
My only slight issue with the book was the switch from Shelby’s present world to the world of The Dreaming (again, I really can’t say much more or I’ll give stuff away). Most of the transitions between the two worlds were easy to follow and flowed well with the rhythm of the story. There were a few moments where it felt forced and was hard to follow. If you can get through those few little hiccups, you will be well rewarded.
There Will Be Lies by Nick Lake is scheduled to be published on January 6, 2015.
