But when Toadspit's sister Bonnie is stolen, he and Goldie are forced to follow the child-stealers to the neighboring city of Spoke.

    "Another Great Listen"

    City of Lies picks up where Museum of Thieves ended. I suspect there is going to be a third book to continue the series. The story was good but what really makes the audio book is Claudia Black's narration. She doesn't just read; she performs. Ms Black is an actor, best known for her performances in the Sci-Fi series Farscape and Stargate. She brings all her acting talent to her audio book readings making for a great listening experience. I hope we hear more narrations from her.

    "Wonderfully Read, a bit confusing"

    I enjoyed this well read story by Claudia Black,but I found the conceits of the universe tiring after a while.

    Not only is there a city where for 3 to 5 days everyone has to lie , It also has random magic that turns the lies true, this is in addition the city of Jewel with its now freed and completely scared of being freed population and it's museum of thieves with its strange magic.

    I think the author was going for an eclectic universe but instead it's a more muddled one.
