Overview

The Truth-Teller's Tale (Safe Keepers Series #2) by Sharon Shinn

Innkeeper’s daughters Adele and Eleda are “mirror twins”—identical twins whose looks are reflections of each other’s—and their special talents are like mirrors, too. Adele is a Safe-Keeper, entrusted with hearing and never revealing others’ secrets; Eleda is a Truth-Teller, who cannot tell a lie when asked a direct question. The town of Merendon relies on the twins, no one more than their best friend, Roelynn Karro, whose strict, wealthy father is determined to marry her off to the prince. When the girls are seventeen, a handsome dancing-master and his apprentice come to stay at the inn, and thus begins a chain of romance, mistaken identity, and some very surprising truths and falsehoods.

I had a hard time deciding which of these silly, shallow little girls I loathed most. I believecthe final winner of this dubious honor was Roelyn, possibly the mist annoying little bint ecer imagined.

I was looking forward to reading this book because I really enjoy the genre. It was a good book, but not as good as I had hoped it would be. The plot was fairly predictable and the characters were rather one-dimensional without much growth over the course of the book. On the other hand, I really liked Sharon Shinn's writing style and ability to create an interesting world. There was some minor reference to sex, but certainly nothing that I would worry about my tween or teen reading. I plan to read another work by this author to see if it was simply this particular book that didn't thrill me.

This is one of the most well constructed, and built books I have ever read. And a twist in the end was unexpected.

Truth Teller's Tale is a good book about A girl named Eleda who has a 'mirror twin' (amirror image of Elleda in both looks and actions)named Adele. This is a good book, with slightly mature content.
