Jade’s 4 Star Review
When Trudy asked me to read Epic Lies I freaked out naturally! I couldn’t wait to read Dax’s story! And man did I fall in love with not only him but Lara & Giselle also!
The prologue alone had tears leaking from my eyes and I don’t cry. It takes ALOT for me to cry, but the way Trudy kicks this story off sucked me in immediately. Her words were heart crushing and I was sucker punched right in the gut.
This is a story of how fate and destiny are inevitable. Some people are meant to be and no matter what life throws at you, you WILL find that person! Giselle and Dax have a connection they never even knew and they help each other heal in the same way. They are proof that love heals, conquers and prevails.
Get ready for a whole new side to Trudy Stile’s writing! You get to “be in on” all of her secrets and actually LIVE it with her beautiful characters this time around. She takes you on Giselle and Dax’s journey and you as the reader gets to travel it along with them.
It’s very different from every other story in the fact that there aren’t any “surprises”. You’re going to be able to feel exactly how Giselle and Dax feel as their relationship and lives play out. And I enjoyed that immensely!
What I also appreciate about Epic Lies was the awareness of a very serious subject, rape. This, especially with what’s going on in the news right now, sheds light on how rape affects a woman and how they are able to live their lives after such an ordeal. I applaud Trudy for being so brave in allowing this topic to be in such a fantastic book. It not only adds to the story and shapes Giselle, but Trudy manages to show you “real life” feelings and thoughts because of Giselle’s rape. So thank you for bringing this topic to light. I adore you for this! And make sure you read the Note to Readers! Its Important!!!!!
I flew through Epic Lies! Its a great read and had a bit of everything you want in a book! Trudy’s words as always are wonderfully strung together to create a beautiful story that you will love! Give it a go and meet Dax & Giselle! You’re going to LOVE their life! Excellent job Trudy! Proud of you girl!
4 out of 5 Epically Destined to Be Stars!!!
Louisa’s 4 Star Review
Epic Lies is just another masterpiece by Trudy Stiles. As many have said – “it’s so different from what we normally get from Trudy” but that’s not a bad thing!! The prologue broke me…literally made me fall to pieces, but in true Trudy fashion, she put me back together.
Dax and Giselle were destined to meet, their lives intertwined in so many ways. With each new revelation between them I was sucked further and further into their lives and them into my heart. Their lives guided by another force, the force to bring them together, in good and bad times.
Their lives were so different, yet so alike. They both are so cynical when it comes to love and when they meet it’s like a new fire it lit in each of them. There is no forced or insta love, but genuine “like” and attraction for each other, regardless of how hard they try to fight it.
Trudy tackles a few issue in this book that could enlighten many to these common, unfortunately, every day occurrences. She faces them head on as they should be, with serious concern and tact. They may be hard situations to face but they have lifelong consequences. Trudy once again can take a hard topic and write beautiful words to help us understand the feeling and after effects with grace and beauty when there is not any to be outwardly seen.
Another beautiful book by Trudy. It states that it’s a stand alone, but I believe that reading Epic Sins first, gives you a set up to who Dax is and sheds light on him.
