Wow, not what I expected. Well written. I can't wait to read more of Sam's books.

City of Lies was an excellent political mystery set in a fantasy world. The characters of Jovan and Kalina were fully developed and I can't wait to learn more about both of them. The plot was slower paced but the political system and intrigues were rich, and in that respect I'm reminded of Sanderson's Mistborn series - although I think the characterization here is much stronger. Highly recommended for fantasy fans.
