Publisher's Summary

Poison. Treachery. Ancient spirits. Sieges. The Poison Wars begin now, with City of Lies, a fabulous epic fantasy debut audiobook by Sam Hawke.

I was seven years old the first time my uncle poisoned me... 

Outwardly, Jovan is the lifelong friend of the Chancellor’s charming, irresponsible Heir. Quiet. Forgettable. In secret, he's a master of poisons and chemicals, trained to protect the Chancellor’s family from treachery. When the Chancellor succumbs to an unknown poison and an army lays siege to the city, Jovan and his sister Kalina must protect the Heir and save their city-state.  

But treachery lurks in every corner, and the ancient spirits of the land are rising...and angry.

Interesting...

This was a good story but it felt like it was purposely written to become a movie. The plot wasn’t very exciting but I did like the characters and I could see how it might be better as a movie

Trust no one

Loved it! Excellent narration. Rosa's performance reminded me of Kate Beckinsale in Underworld. Honor down one of the best debuts of the year, excellent worldbuilding, interesting characters and lots of betrayal.
