The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This was my first book by Mary E. Pearson.I will be reading more. Moving on to the next book in this series.
I loved this book so much. I am so invested in the lives of these characters. I have not been pulled in this much I read Caraval last year. I can't believe it took me so long to pick this series up. I have loved these covers and I own the books but it wasn't until I seen it on my library so I picked it up.
Lira doesn't like feeling trapped in a Kingdom where she can no be who she wants to be and love who she wants to love. She runs away but before she left, she stole something from the kingdom and now, not only is she being by the prince that she was supposed to wed but also a hired an assassin for the item she stole.
I do really enjoy the love story that unfolds by Lira and Rafe, the prince (which Lira is no aware is the prince)
I also love the story of Pauline. She was such a faithful friend to Lira. I think it would be a great spin off to write about Pauline and let her have her won story. But I haven't finished the rest of the books yet so the story of Pauline may change. (No spoilers please) :)
This book was a page turner. I could not listen to this book fast enough. It was so good. All I could do when I got off work was pop in my ear buds and listen to this and I would even go to bed early just to lay in my bed to listen to it.
I highly recommend this book.
