The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson
Publication Date: July 15th 2014
Publisher: Henry Holt Books for Young Readers
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.
Why I Can’t Wait: I only recently heard about this book, but the buzz since has been all amazing things! I am due for a killer fantasy read and this sounds just the ticket! The cover is really pretty too.
