City of Lies was a great debut. Growing up being poisoned on purpose as “training”, a culture where children are raised as part of their mother’s family, so a father’s sons are never their heirs. It was interesting and had some good intrigue as well. So, I am definitely looking forward to the next in series!Hollow Empire (Poison Wars #2) by Sam Hawke
