    Magic for Liars isn t what I expected it to be I had impressions from other early readers that it would be along the lines of a murder mystery in Hogwarts, which turned out to be less than accurate Instead, Magic for Liars is about the lies we tell ourselves, and each other It is about the disastrous things that result from these lies, no matter how well meaning they were, or how innocent they seemed It begins with the gruesome death of a staff member at The Osthorne Academy for Young Mages Magic for Liars isn t what I expected it to be I had impressions from other early readers that it would be along the lines of a murder mystery in Hogwarts, which turned out to be less than accurate Instead, Magic for Liars is about the lies we tell ourselves, and each other It is about the disastrous things that result from these lies, no matter how well meaning they were, or how innocent they seemed It begins with the gruesome death of a staff member at The Osthorne Academy for Young Mages After an investigation by the authorities concludes the d...
