One more book review for 2020–may be running out of time for any more.
Liars and Thieves by D. Wallace Peach
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Goblins, elves, changelings and more. Occasional humans too–rarely. It’s the interactions of the first three that holds the conflict and a storyline of finger-pointing over who is trespassing on whose territory–violating a treaty intended to keep competing interests from breaking out in war. They depend on one another–to an extent, so that’s preferable.
It’s my first reading of this compelling sub-genre and found it very entertaining. Just took a little while to figure out who was really who, their powers or attributes, and where it all would end up. I knew it really wouldn’t “end” because this is the first in a series. So, yes, I will read more.

It’s interesting to me that a genre with which is not familiar such as the one you’ve reviewed here John, can nevertheless have appeal. I guess if the theme is universal, that is its success. Thank you.
A wonderful review, John. Kudos to you for stepping out of the norm to read a new genre! D. Wallace Peach is a talented writer!
Arg, my comment just poofed! Ok, great review, love Diana’s writing, even though far away from my reading genre, of course I’m going to read it. 🙂
Poofing has been going around lately. LOL
