La magie pour les menteurs, un premier roman fantastique de l’étoile montante Sarah Gailey, allie l’acuité de la fantasy grand public aux frissons d’une enquête noire.

Ivy Gamble est née sans magie et n’en a jamais voulu.

Ivy Gamble est parfaitement heureuse de sa vie – ou du moins, elle est parfaitement bien.

Elle ne souhaite en aucun cas ressembler à Tabitha, sa sœur jumelle surdouée dont elle s’est séparée.

Ivy Gamble est une menteuse.

Lorsqu’un meurtre horrible est découvert à l’Académie Osthorne des jeunes mages, où sa sœur jumelle, dont elle est séparée, enseigne la magie théorique, Ivy Gamble, détective réticente, est entraînée dans un monde de pouvoir incalculable et de secrets dangereux. Elle devra trouver un meurtrier et récupérer sa sœur, sans se perdre elle-même.



Sharp, mainstream fantasy meets compelling thrills of investigative noir inMagic 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.

“A private investigator takes a job investigating a murder at a magic school in California. Our PI never developed magic ability, much to her dismay—so we enter that world with the same longing for specialness that she does. Whether it’s the ‘murder investigation’ part of that summary that grabs you or the ‘magic school’ part, this winsome, clever book will definitely engage you.”–Veronica Roth, #1 New York Times best-selling author of theDivergent series

“The world has little mercy; but it does have heart, and like Ivy, it carries on despite its scars.”—NPR

Magic for Liars is a perfect, spare, delectable novel that features a masterful narrative structure, terribly human characters occupying realistically magical settings, and more. The prose is spot-on and paints an intimate, flawed portrait of how a world like Gamble’s would function, from the moment she tells the disbelieving bartender magic exists to the moment she walks out on her sister. I can’t recommend it highly enough.” —Tor.com
