After enjoying Cheat (Icarus Helix #1), I thought the rest of the series would be entertaining, mostly stand alone reads, but now I'm officially hooked. These "episodes" are much more intertwined than I expected.
Liar features Ellen - a teen who can hear the real truth behind what is actually spoken. (What a horrible gift to have in adolescence, right?)
Marcus Tiller gambled away all of his money to the Bad Men. No sweat - they gave him more. But when his new bets went sour, he became desperate. He signed on with Icarus Consulting to inject newborns with an experimental compound.
Fourteen years later, Ellen discovers a startling ability - she can tell if people are lying. Not only that, but when they do, she can hear their true thoughts.
When a smooth-talking stranger hints at her powers, paranoia starts. Ellen finds herself drawn into best friend drama, tip-toeing around boys and fearing a divorce.
With the masks of people around her shattering, will Ellen learn to live with her power... or be struck down by it?
If you are a fan of Kyle XY, this is the perfect series for you. I can't wait to see what's in store in Coward (Icarus Helix #3).
