Book Review – Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson 

Synopsis: 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.

(I always try my best to give a spoiler-free review! So you can enjoy reading the book and my review with ease 🙂

Review: The character development of this book is by far the best. I won’t spoil you if you haven’t read it yet, but take note of the Prince’s and the Assassin’s character development because it is going to be a crazy ride! The author goes out of the norm of character description and leads you on to a different perspective and how stereotypes can make you believe another total different entity. 

If you are a person who does not like the slow build of a plot, you might not enjoy the front section of this book. But when you get to the part where everything starts to meet and make sense, you would be able to enjoy it immensely ^^

Awesome or nah:
