Annie Smith, a NetGalley reviewer shares her thoughts on Luchia Dertien's "Gnomon".
[...] Meanwhile, it never stops being a thriller. A story that bounced back and forth between sociopathic Delaurier trying to learn how to be in a relationship with frequently unstable Renaire and meetings with Delaurier’s cabal and trying to foil a plot that would undo all of the cabal’s efforts somehow works. Dertien’s debut is brilliant.
What carries the book is the banter between Renaire and Delaurier. They are acerbic and tender by turns. I frequently laughed out loud as they teased and tormented each other. I really hope there are more adventures waiting to be published.
