This is book number 2 in the Between Lions series.
Survival comes at a steep cost...when you're being chased down a magical staircase by shape shifting mythological creatures that want to kill you.
With Styx gone, Anna's only ally against the ancient powers is Cax, a charming thief she can't seem to fully trust...or trust herself with. Each spiraling step towards her ultimate destiny as The Heir leads to shocking revelations about Cax, the darkly fantastical Libraries, and the mysterious voice within herself. Author Jodi Baker's breathtakingly unique brand of storytelling weaves magical mysticism, forbidden romance, and shocking plot twists into this electrifying second installment of the Between Lions Series.
Will the answers Anna is searching for get her killed, or set her free?
Only TRUTH will tell.
Praise for the Between Lions Series:
"Jodi Baker's first YA series had me hooked at page one with her debut 'Trust'...her second, Truth had me on a magical journey up the spiral staircase (you'll have to read to find out). Between Lions is definitely the YA series to follow " -The New York Times
"Trust, Book One and Truth, Book Two are the perfect companions ...We need more books like this that take a strong young female who is faced with many obstacles and comes out shining on the other side. Truth took me on an real journey as if I was there, ingenious This series should be on every young woman's bookshelf " -The Los Angeles Times
"America's answer to Harry Potter. That's the wonder about Jodi Baker: what makes her brilliant is taking various cultures, histories, and myths then weaving them (to) form a new basket in the fantasy/sci-fi genre. Rowling may had built that fantasy path using British/Roman bricks, but Baker is constructing a new fantasy road using a mortar of Meso-American history, dusted with Norse mythology, and good ole Egyptian and Greek/Roman classics. " -The Arriviste
"Loved the mysticism and magic. World building made me want to jump in the fight alongside Anna. Must-Read YA & Recommended Romance List " -USA Today
