THE KISS OF DECEPTION by Mary E. Pearson | excerpt

Today's excerpt was a request - as I said, I've got a whole big stack of books that are coming out that I'd like to share excerpts of, to help you get a feel for the style and to shine a little spotlight on the book, and Priscila D. wanted to hear a little something from Mary E. Pearson's upcoming fantasy, THE KISS OF DECEPTION.

This excerpt is a quick one, because it seemed like a natural place to stop, but let me just say, I wanted to keep reading for you, and I DID keep reading for me before I finally controlled the impulse and got back to my planned reading. Didn't want to put this down!

Let me know what you think in the comments, and if there's something you'd like to see vlogged!

The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson
Get It | Add It
High Fantasy, 492 pages
Expected publication: July 15th 2014 by Henry Holt
In this timeless new trilogy about love and sacrifice, a princess must find her place in a reborn world.

In a society steeped in tradition, Princess Lia’s life follows a preordained course. As First Daughter, she is expected to have the revered gift of sight—but she doesn’t—and she knows her parents are perpetrating a sham when they arrange her marriage to secure an alliance with a neighboring kingdom—to a prince she has never met.

On the morning of her wedding, Lia flees to a distant village. She settles into a new life, hopeful when two mysterious and handsome strangers arrive—and unaware that one is the jilted prince and the other an assasin sent to kill her. Deception abounds, and Lia finds herself on the brink of unlocking perilous secrets—even as she finds herself falling in love.
