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 happliy reviewed the first book in this series here. Which is why it will come to no surprise when I saw this on Edelweiss I knew I had to read it. This book picks up very quickly after the first one ends. It has the same narrators, Annie and Fia, and has the same dual timeline. While the dual timeline got old for me after awhile, the dual point of view didn’t. I enjoyed Fia’s sarcasm, and Annie continuously being Annie. White even through in a Hunger Games reference which was spot on for this year of pop culture.

There is a heavier mention of boys in this book, with James for Fia and Adam for Annie, but I spent the whole book questioning both of them. Which is weird for me. I tend to trust White’s love interests ASAP, but these two sent off my DANGER WILL ROBINSON vibe for most of the book. Particularly when James called Fia “pet.” It made me shudder, every. single. time. Hint for men out there, call me “Pet” I will bitch face you. Not even lovingly. Just a flat out bitch face.

This story seemed all about Annie and Fia becoming more confident in who they are. Which was a nice change from the first book, where they were clearly, and understandably not sure. This book also showed a side of both characters where it was better to be content with who you are than who you should be.

This book is much, much stronger than the first. There is absolutely no question about that. I am still a firm believer that this duology should have been one book. It would have worked and flowed easier if it was one book, but it is a solid sequel. I continue to look forward to what White has to bring to the YA table.

I loved this book. This is the second in a series that deals with two sisters who have special powers-one who reads the future and one who has perfect instincts that leads to choices that can not be predicted. The sister with the perfect instincts is slowly being destroyed by the choices that she makes. Both sisters keep trying to rescue each other but most of their efforts back-fire. I thought I know how I wanted the book to end but then the writer tossed in a surprise ending that was perfect. I highly recommend this book.

[More of my reviews are available on my blog, Geeky Reading, to which there's a link on my profile.]

I love Kiersten White’s stories. Everything I’ve read of hers so far has been fantastic. I will read anything of hers at this point.

This was a great continuation and conclusion to the series. It went by really fast, and is rather short, too.

I like both Annie and Fia, a lot. Their development was really nice, and some of it was surprising. It all really needed to happen, too. The ending for them was perfect, very fitting for each of them. Annie needed to take charge, not be taken care of; she always had it in her, she just needed to do it. Fia needed a break, badly. Time to find herself, grow into herself, be away from everything and everyone. Especially after what happened in this book.

I’m really happy for Annie. And I really like Cole.

I feel really bad for Fia. At the beginning, I wasn’t expecting what happened with James. By the middle (maybe even earlier, actually), I was starting to wonder, but hoping I was wrong. It’s frustrating, though, and sad.

This was a great book. It was exciting and intense, the development was fantastic, the characters are great, the writing was fantastic. It was a great conclusion, and now I really want to get my hands on White’s other books (The Chaos of Stars, which I still haven’t gotten, and her next books).

My one only complaint would be the lack of explanation of the previous book. There was absolutely no explaining what happened in the first book, and it really could have fit if only for meeting the minor characters on Annie’s side. Given that I read the first book this time last year, a lot of the characters were blurry for me. I got over that, but it still would have been nice.

Fia and Annie escaped the Keane Foundation, and to do so, they had to fake Annie's death and separate. If Patrick Keane knew Annie was still alive, Fia would be outed as a traitor. Keane thinks she killed her sister to prove her loyalty to him. Little does he know, Fia and her boyfriend James -- Keane's own son -- are out to destroy him. But can Fia really trust James? Is he really working against his father, or is he using Fia to rebuild the Foundation into something bigger and stronger than before?

Annie desperately wants to reconnect with her sister. She worries about Fia's fragile mind, and she'll do anything to help her. As her visions of Fia's future grow more and more disturbing, Annie realizes she may have to place herself in danger to keep her sister from going over the edge.

I really enjoyed Mind Games, the first in this series. It was unique and kept me guessing the entire way. I'm happy to report that Perfect Lies was just as enjoyable. I was afraid the novelty of the story would have worn off, but Ms. White does an excellent job at moving this book along very quickly and makes it feel fresh. Fia and Annie's alternating viewpoints drive the story forward, and while the two take place at different points in time, I never felt confused. Though the book is short, the plot is dense, and there are a ton of twists and turns. I was never sure who we could trust and I loved how it all came together.

I really loved Fia in the first book. I loved how Ms. White "broke" her and conveyed her erratic thoughts and behaviors. She is even more on the edge in this book. I loved it. While she felt unhinged before, she was teetering on the edge in this installment. I both loved and feared her.
