About Magic for Liars

Sharp, mainstream fantasy meets compelling thrills of investigative noir in Magic for Liars, a fantasy debut by rising star Sarah Gailey. 

Ivy Gamble was born without magic and never wanted it.

Ivy Gamble is perfectly happy with her life – or at least, she’s perfectly fine.

She doesn't in any way wish she was like Tabitha, her estranged, gifted twin sister.

Ivy Gamble is a liar.

When a gruesome murder is discovered at The Osthorne Academy of Young Mages, where her estranged twin sister teaches Theoretical Magic, reluctant detective Ivy Gamble is pulled into the world of untold power and dangerous secrets. She will have to find a murderer and reclaim her sister—without losing herself.

"There’s something for almost all readers here....Gailey shows us that humans are humans, even when they are magic, and they are still flawed, damaged, and oh-so-interesting" —Booklist (starred review)

"Clever and fast-paced...a wonderfully quirky mystery filled with inviting characters and gripping surprise twists." —Publishers Weekly
