Kiss of Deception

Author: Mary E. Pearson

Trilogy: Book 1

Publication:  Henry Holt

Goodreads Summary: A princess must find her place in a reborn world.

She flees on her wedding day.

She steals ancient documents from the Chancellor’s secret collection.

She is pursued by bounty hunters sent by her own father.

She is Princess Lia, seventeen, First Daughter of the House of Morrighan.

The Kingdom of Morrighan is steeped in tradition and the stories of a bygone world, but some traditions Lia can’t abide. Like having to marry someone she’s never met to secure a political alliance.

Fed up and ready for a new life, Lia flees to a distant village on the morning of her wedding. She settles in among the common folk, intrigued when two mysterious and handsome strangers arrive—and unaware that one is the jilted prince and the other an assassin sent to kill her. Deceptions swirl and Lia finds herself on the brink of unlocking perilous secrets—secrets that may unravel her world—even as she feels herself falling in love.

Review: I loved this book from page 1. I loved Lia, Pauline, Rafe, Kaden, and everyone. This book would have been a solid 5/5 stars if I hadn’t been searching for the plot twist right in the beginning. When this book first came out, I had seen a lot of spoiler free book reviews talking about the book saying that it had one of the biggest plot twists ever. When I had found who the assassin and prince were it wasn’t as big as I thought it would have been even though the whole book was leading up to this reveal. No, i didn’t guess who it was and it wasn’t that i didn’t care because I really was enjoying the book. i think the hype ruined the experience of this book for me. my expectations were too high. Don’t worry! I will definitely be reading the sequel because I need to know what happens. I’m just waiting to read it closer to the third books release date.

Rating: 4/5

  1. I actually try to avoid the synopsis of books before I read them so that any twists/storylines are spoiled. I was utterly shocked (seriously shocked!) when they revealed who was who. I had it backwards and was like trying to go back on my iPad to see how I read it wrong. I really loved this series! Can’t wait till the next one comes out 🙂
