In something akin to french revolution just before they brought out the guillotine the nobles agreed to a system of judges who are backed by the King and a magical godlike entity who empowers them to be able to tell truth from lies. But not all nobles are happy with their powers being limited. A little fun by reader in deciding if the judgements are fair. I do felt sometimes the judges stopped questioning a little early and where too aggressive on cutting out witnesses volunteering additional information.
But it held my interest and moved along quickly.
And even If you are not a fan of that (like me for example) it's still possible that you will like the story.
In this case I found that each of the mini-stories that each case the judicators had to preside on was quite entertaining. An interesting twist on the normal setup is that in this case, the judging person can always detect the lie/truth, so getting to the bottom of things just takes a correct set of questions.
Besides the cases themselves I found the main plot rather interesting with quite a lot of action. The main characters are easy to like, the villains are easy to hate. Maybe it's not a complicated plot, but it was fun enough to read.
I tend to just like Daems dry but positive writing and strong female leads who grow up and make something of themselves. I do have a complaint about this one in that he has the leader of the pair take irresponsible risks and gets someone unnecessarily killed.
