The Midnight Lie by Marie Rutkoski (book review).

‘The Midnight Lie’ by Marie Rutkoski is the first in a duology set in the same world as her ‘Winners Trilogy’. Don’t worry, you don’t have to have read that trilogy to enjoy this book. Personally, I’ve not read the trilogy as yet and I found this book enjoyable. Nirrim lives in a world where […]
