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 am giving up with this
book. I wanted to read something that reminds me of Falling Kingdoms (my
favorite fantasy series!) while I wait till the end of this year for
the next book to come out, so I started The Kiss of Deception. It
started great with her wedding preparation but then once she flees the
book became boring. What's worse, the characters were boring and they do not have any
charisma that makes me want to read the book to spend more time with
them. Seems there is a love triangle. The "Assassin" did not deliver to
me the feeling that he is an assassin. The Prince... nothing Charming
bout him. And Princess Lia ... I did not understand her at all.
I was so excited about this book :( what a shame.
