Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Fia and Annie, sisters with paranormal powers, plot to take down the ruthless Keane Foundation that has controlled them in this breathless sequel to Mind Games (2013). After faking her death, Annie is free to join Keane’s opposition, an underground network headed by the mysterious Lerner. There, her predictive visions of Fia, working against Keane from the inside, suggest that Fia is losing control. Aided by Keane’s son, James, Fia is in place as a recruiter for Keane’s school, but her perfect instincts, which enable her to manipulate situations, grow unstable without Annie’s moderation. She can no longer feel which choices are right and wrong, and without a moral compass, she’s more dangerous than ever. Like the first, this book has an intriguing nonlinear structure, with both sisters counting down to the final confrontation. Fia’s time line starts five days before the event and proceeds in frenetic bursts, while Annie’s starts four months earlier and provides information and context. Suspenseful and smart, this ties up the main story lines while leaving the greater world-building details to the imagination. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: A “Dark Days” group author tour spearheads a national campaign including videos, appearances, a sweepstakes, and exclusive content. Grades 8-11. --Krista Hutley

I end the book wanting more from Annie, wanting more from Fia.
Carina
So I am not a fan of the back and forth between the future and the present settings and the alternative point of views, which always leave me a bit confuse.
Yara Santos
I think that he might have been in Mind Games briefly (don’t quote me on that, I honestly don’t remember) but we get to know him a lot better in this book.

I don’t know what I was expecting from this. More action? Less romance? More assassinations? Less whining about having to save each other? Whatever it was, I didn’t get it. What I didn’t get in Mind Games are almost all here in this one. And I don’t mean that in a good way. The relationship between Kiersten White and I is so iffy that I’m scared to read her other series for the sake that I will hate it more than I do this one.

In Perfect Lies Fia’s once odd yet exciting mind turns for the worst. Instead of sounding unique and enticing, I found that Kiersten White tried too hard and made her extremely unstable and even worse, annoying. Three taps is fine, it sticks and things usually go better in three but four sounds awkward and I found myself having to slow down while reading one of Fia’s repetitions just so that I got it right (It was annoying annoying annoying ANNOYING to do so.) On another note, I still had a hard time with the characters except for Annie. The rest felt flimsy and pathetic, not adding anything to story but take up space. A relationship that I used to enjoy (Fia’s and Adam’s) is completely disregarded and is just non-existent in this one.

The only that stayed the same for the best are the short chapters. I flew through this novel in less than a day. And I actually liked the idea of the setting because it’s exotic and dangerous and a little intense unfortunately, the execution of it is sloppy at best. Like I said before, Annie is the only character that I liked. I liked her because, even though she’s still a whiny little brat, she’s grows a little and her chapters are well described and I had a much easier time connecting to her than I would have imagined. While reading, I found myself skimming Fia’s chapters just to read about Annie and her life.

There will be spoilers for the first book in this series Mind Games. Proceed with caution if you do not wish to be spoiled!

The Mind Games series is a duology! I repeat, Mind Games is a duology. I am ashamed to admit that I did not know this while reading Perfect Lies. As I was nearing the last 30 pages of Perfect Lies, I had noticed that it started to wind down. Then once I got to the end, I set the book down and went, "Wait a minute. Is this the ending? Is there no more for this series?" I immediately went to the internet, and found out that sure enough Perfect Lies is the final book and the series is a duology. I immediately was a bit sad, because I love this series! It's such a quick and fast read. It's the perfect series to curl up with on a day off from work or school.

I am ashamed to admit that this is not the first time I have read the final book in a series and while reading not known that it was the last book. Back in 2008, when I read the Twilight books, I had no clue that Breaking Dawn was the last book. I believe I've mentioned before in reviews that I hate spoilers. And since I didn't want to be spoiled, I didn't look anything up about the series. I just ordered the four books that were available. And when I got to the ending of Breaking Dawn, I had the same reaction as Perfect Lies. This got me thinking. I never realized it before, but you read the final book in a series differently. You may not subconsciously realize it, but it's true. You go into a different mind set. And I am not so sure if that's a good or a bad thing. I think while reading the last book in a series, you have expectations. It's not that reading the last book isn't as enjoyable, but your feelings are also different.

Format: Hardcover
Fia is so beautifully broken. While everyone seems to think she's insane, I'm honestly surprised she's held it together as well as she has. To have her talent while amazing, is undeniably a curse when misused. She feels horribly sick and wrong when she's making the "wrong" choice. And considering what her life has been like since the Foundation took over her and her sister's lives. She's learned to function as best she can with all that wrongness, but when you add those terrible feelings to the immense guilt she feels from what the Foundation has forced her to do, she's constantly teetering the edge of sanity. My heart broke so many times for her, and where others saw anger and abrasiveness, I saw emotional devastation and a girl pushed too far. That being said, I was really happy to see her finally start to make decisions based on her own needs and wants rather than allowing herself to be completely manipulated. Sure there still was more than plenty manipulation placed on her, but in PERFECT LIES, she started to throw off a little of her chains one link at a time, and I was cheering for her every step of the way.

So much of this series involved relationship dynamics and secrets. I loved getting to see how each side of the story interwove with the other, and how I was always left guessing at everyone's motives, even Fia and Annie themselves. One relationship that really stood out to me was the one between Fia and James. It was powerful, yet completely confusing at the same time. I'm still honestly not sure whether or not his motives were pure towards her or not even after finishing this final book in the duology. Honestly I think it's a mix of both as while he may genuinely care for her, it didn't seem to stop him from using her for his own gain.
