The Kiss of Deception (The Remnant Chronicles #1)
By Mary E. Pearson
'I drew in a deep breath, a new breath, one I had never taken before.
I am only Lia, now. From this day forward.
It felt like a baptism. A deeper kind of cleansing. Water trickled down my face and dripped from chin. Terravin wasn't just a new home. Dalbreck could have offered that, but there I'd have been only a curiosity in a foreign land, with still no voice in my own destiny.
Terravin offered a new life. It was both exhilarating and terrifying.'
Move aside Daenerys Targaryen...a new badass princess is coming!
Kings throw away your crowns. Queens start practising your curtsey. Because Princess Lia is here to show you how being royal is supposed to be done - going on a journey that will tear her apart & put her back together again as she becomes the woman she was always meant to be.
She doesn't accept lies or deception. She wants to make her own destiny. And she's so badass it's not even possible to describe the insane amounts of badass-ery this girl has. Especially that part when she faces down a bunch of barbarian assassins & tells them to basically screw themselves.
And not only does this book have a brilliantly constructed plot, a badass heroine & a fantastic world of myth & magic, but to top it all off it presents us with not one...but two gorgeous men. Although, I do think Rafe is the more attractive of the two!
So if you're ready for the adventure of a lifetime...be sure to grab yourself a copy of The Kiss of Deception when it's released! :)
