The Kiss of Deception Review
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 unawar 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.
I really do like this book. I just wouldn't consider it a new favourite. I liked how you didn't know who was the assassin and the prince until it was reveal.
I didn't like Lia that much. I found she was very rash in her decisions and actions. Also she tended to make rude comments and the 'barbains' but as soon as the say something about her people it was suddenly the end of the world.
Personally, I didn't like the person who ended up being the prince as much as I liked the guy who ended up being the assassin. I found like Lia the prince really was pushing people who weren't raised in the same place as him away, while the assassin was much more accepting.
4 out of 5 stars
