What if those who you thought you knew best were the ones who betrayed you worst?
Pete Drake knows his mother as well as he knows anyone, and he trusts his school roommate implicitly. But when Pete goes looking for answers to some of his nagging questions, he finds the people he cares about most may not be as they seem. Even more unsettling, the rebel threat at the Academy of Omniosophical Arts & Sciences resurfaces, and in far more insidious form.
Masked by Lies is the sixth installment in Peyton Drake’s seven-part Mind the Portal story by academy plenipotentiary J.S.D. Johnston. The nearly 19,000-word fantasy novella brings Pete face to face with the darker elements of academy life, as well as his own fears.
Available for Kindle & in print, or as a complimentary PDF, Audio book, and more for members of Omni's Bibliothefairy's Apprentice community.
