Annie and Fia are ready to fight back.

The sisters have been manipulated and controlled by the Keane Foundation for years, trapped in a never ending battle for survival. Now they have found allies who can help them truly escape. After faking her own death, Annie has joined a group that is plotting to destroy the Foundation. And Fia is working with James Keane to bring his father down from the inside.

But Annie's visions of the future can't show her who to trust in the present. And though James is Fia's first love, Fia knows he's hiding something. The sisters can rely only on each other - but that may not be enough to save them.

I don’t know where to begin with this review. After finishing Mind Games and how it ended I was expecting more action in this sequel. After all, the sisters are on the run and ready to fight back for their freedom. Yet, Perfect Lies felt like a claustrophobic for both Fia and Annie.

In Mind Games, I really loved Fia. She had this tough persona. I loved how she was always looking out for her sister. She did things that she never wanted to do but had to do to keep her sister safe. At the end of Mind Games, she did something unexpected and left Annie.

As mentioned before, Fia’s role has always been to protect her older sister, Annie. In Mind Games I didn’t like Annie much because although understanding her situation, she let everyone do things for her. But now that Fia has left her protected with strange people, Annie is finally tired of feeling useless. In Perfect Lies, Annie finally puts her big girl shoes on and does the unexpected.

So I am not a fan of the back and forth between the future and the present settings and the alternative point of views, which always leave me a bit confuse. Which happens in this series, but I really liked how Annie finally broke into this person I always thought she out to be. My issue with this sequel is Fia. I always felt like she was this tough chick that always got things her way. In Perfect Lies, her character is broken. It was frustrating reading her POV. I wanted to shake her and tell her to snap out of it!

So if you read Mind Games, make sure you pick up the sequel. Annie will surprise you.
