Summary

Set in the world of the New York Times best-selling Winner's Trilogy, The Midnight Lie is an epic LGBTQ romantic fantasy about learning to free ourselves from the lies others tell us - and the lies we tell ourselves.

Where Nirrim lives, crime abounds, a harsh tribunal rules and society's pleasures are reserved for the High Kith. Life in the Ward is grim and punishing. People of her low status are forbidden from sampling sweets or wearing colours. You either follow the rules or pay a tithe and suffer the consequences.

Nirrim keeps her head down and a dangerous secret close to her chest.

But then she encounters Sid, a rakish traveller from far away, who whispers rumours that the High Kith possess magic. Sid tempts Nirrim to seek that magic for herself. But to do that, Nirrim must surrender her old life. She must place her trust in this sly stranger who asks, above all, not to be trusted.

Sublime!

I cannot even begin to express how much I adored this book! It is stunningly written and I feel like the narrator was the perfect fit. My one criticism is that the audio quality itself isn't always amazing, but honestly it's a small thing that was only present every now again, so it didn't break immersion or ruin my listening experience. The characters and plot and DESCRIPTION are just absolutely beautiful and I cannot wait for a follow up.
