The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson
The Remnant Chronicles #1
Finished in June 10th 2015
I quite enjoyed this book. I loved the fact that Lia, the main character, isn’t your typical princess. She is fierce and a total badass. She had the strength to chase the life she wanted instead of accepting the life that was chosen for her. She stands up for her friend Pauline more than anyone and she’s not afraid to get her hands dirty.
The first part of the book was okay, we got to know more about Lia, the Prince and the Assassin and I find them all interesting characters. I especially loved the fact that the author never really says who’s the Assassin and who’s the Prince. And yet I was sure I knew who they were. Fooled me well…
The second part was the most exciting, especially when I reached page 300 and something. I couldn’t put the book down! I was so sure I had everything figured out and then BAM PLOT TWIST! It made me go back in the book to see if I had missed something! It made me crazy but it gripped my attention and that’s what makes books memorable, so I really recommend this book!
