The Kiss of Deception
by Mary E. Pearson
Series: The Remnant Chronicles #1
Publication Date: 15 July 2014
by Henry Holt and Co. (BYR)
In this timeless new trilogy about love and sacrifice, a princess must find her place in a reborn world.
In a society steeped in tradition, Princess Lia’s life follows a preordained course. As First Daughter, she is expected to have the revered gift of sight—but she doesn’t—and she knows her parents are perpetrating a sham when they arrange her marriage to secure an alliance with a neighboring kingdom—to a prince she has never met.
On the morning of her wedding, Lia flees to a distant village. She settles into a new life, hopeful when two mysterious and handsome strangers arrive—and unaware that one is the jilted prince and the other an assasin sent to kill her. Deception abounds, and Lia finds herself on the brink of unlocking perilous secrets—even as she finds herself falling in love.
I will admit the synopsis of The Kiss of Deception isn’t the best but… I can never resist a young adult fantasy novel. They. Are. My. Weakness. Anyway, the cover is pretty easy on the eyes and despite the love triangle that was undoubtedly and shamelessly implied in the blurb, the eerie yet enticing cover just draws me. Doesn’t hurt that the Goodreads rating are pretty good too!
