The Kingdom of Liars by Nick Martell: Book Review

Spoiler-Free The Kingdom of Liars Book Review

The Kingdom of Liars by Nick Martell is a fantastic, engaging debut. I received a review copy from the publisher on Netgalley for an honest review.

Interesting Plot

Political intrigue makes for amazing fantasy books, especially when it’s done well. The Kingdom of Liars might just be one of my new favourite fantasy political intrigues!

The novel begins at the end, and the spends the rest of the book telling how things ended how they did – I was hooked immediately! Who isn’t when the main character is supposedly destined to die?

It can be difficult to end a book with a cyclical structure in a satisfying way, but Nick Martell succeeds in providing us with a string enough ending that has made me excited to read on in the series.

Great Main Character

Michael Kingman is a compelling character with an interesting backstory. You can see what makes him who he is through his actions and dialogue. It is clear how he developed because of his past and the world around him. 

He is a great character to follow, with engaging relationships and a knack for getting what he wants. Definitely a lot of fun to follow throughout the novel.
