    Magic For Liars may be set at a school of magic, but we re on notice from the very first page that this is not THAT kind of school Now they were all downstairs at the welcome back dinner, an all staff all students meal that marked the end of the first week of classes They d joke there about house elves and pumpkin juice or at least the freshmen would By the time they were sophos, that vein of humor was worn beyond use.After a bloody murder at Osthorne Academy for Young Mages located in Magic For Liars may be set at a school of m...

    This time was going to be different This time was going to be better This time, I was going to be enough.Like so many of us readers, Ivy Gamble never had the chance to go to magic school and experience a magical fix for everything wrong in her life Unlike most of us, she s not really allowed to put the dream aside and move on with life her twin sister does get that, from her teenage perspective, and when this story begins years later, she s now a hard drinking, hard living PI, who resolutel This time was going to be different This time was going to be better This time, I was going to be enough.Li...

    Magic for Liars isn t what I expected it to be I had impressions from other early readers that it would be along the lines of a murder mystery in Hogwarts, which turned out to be less than accurate Instead, Magic for Liars is about the lies we tell ourselves, and each other It is about the disastrous things that result from these lies, no matter how well meaning they were, or how innocent they seemed It begins with the gruesome death of a staff member at The Osthorne Academy for Young Mages Magic for Liars isn t what I expected it to be I had impressions from other early readers that it would be along the lines of a murder mystery in Hogwarts, which turned out to be less than accurate Instead, Magic for Liars is about the lies we tell ourselves, and each other It is about the disastrous things that result from these lies, no matter how well meaning they were, or how innocent they seemed It begins with the gruesome death of a staff member at The Osthorne Academy for Young Mages After an investigation by the authorities concludes the death a suicide, the heads of the Academy are unsatisfied Enter Ivy Gamble, PI Ivy isn t like her sister she isn t magic and she doesn t want to be Though she spends most of her days following cheating spouses or investigating insurance fraud, she is reluctantly convinced ...

    Books that are billed as like The Magicians are never like The Magicians in the right ways for me, but this is both like The Magicians in that magic is actually kind of weird and gross and real way, and it s a compelling whodunnit besides The solution was perhaps a tad obvious, but the emotional weight with which the mystery is treated it is deeply rooted in the characters past traumas and dysfunctions and insecurities made that matter less The narrative voice is arresting, and the noir a Books that are billed as like The Magicians are never like The Magicians in the right ways for me, but th...

    Thank you NetGalley and Macmillan Tor Forge for this arc.I wish I enjoyed this readthan I did It sounded like it would be right up my alley But it just missed out for me I was so irritated with Ivy s self pity through out the book, that I was tempted to give up by 37% I found it to be a slow read as it lacked the tension I usually find in murder mysteries and I had a tough time connecting to any of the characters There was plenty of teenage angst and drama as expected for a story set Thank you NetGalley and Macmillan Tor Forge f...

    I gobbled this up in a day and that readability and the premise are definitely the strongest pieces here It s a mystery set at a magic school, I mean come on I was sold immediately The overall experience was good, but not great Because our protagonist was non magic, it allowed Gailey to handwave over some of her world building and some of the rules of magic I was mostly okay with that while reading Ivy didn t understand things so we didn t understand things After reading, I wasawar I gobbled this up in a day and that readability and the premise are definitely ...
