Publisher Description

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 assassin 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.
The Kiss of Deception is the first book in Mary E. Pearson's Remnant Chronicles.

I am just blown away, honestly. I actually read this book for the first time last year, but it has really stuck with me. I had to take a break halfway through because it was just so good and when I finished it, it stayed with me for weeks. I actually read the whole series in two days. Amazing world-building (not slow though, it’s more like the world just came into focus as the plot moved along) and character growth that is noticeable AND BELIEVABLE! Masterfully written, it makes me crazy to think that someone can be this genius.

Loved This Book

I borrowed this book from a library, and all I knew about it was that it was about a princess. So I sat down in an armchair next to my mom and started to read. I was instantly blown away by the story, and the characters. Everything about this book is just SO well done. The characters were so thought out and complex. There are twists and turns around every corner. This book will blow your mind, and I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend it.
