Publisher's Summary

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 assassin 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. The Kiss of Deceptionis the first audiobook in Mary E. Pearson's Remnant Chronicles

Clever!!

I was smitten with this from word one. Lia running off to avoid a loveless arranged marriage was the perfect beginning to this wonderful book. Her relationships with all the characters are engaging and honest. Rafe and Caden are the perfect blend of bad boy and gentleman...even though one is an assassin and one the jilted prince. I found myself catching feelings right along with Lia. There is a clever twist as you continue to listen and it totally caught me off-guard! I was very much like "oh you naughty author! Ya got me!" and then I couldn't believe how I didn't figure it out myself! I finished way too quickly for my own liking and now I am impatiently waiting for my next credit so I can delve into the next book. In my opinion, a must-read. #audible1

Never disappoints

Second time through, still just as good. Solid unique plot, believable characters and their development. Little bit of fantasy, romance, and adventure! All round fav

Boring

Did this book even have a climax? I felt like I was waiting and waiting for something to happen and nothing ever did. Found things (like the gift) weren't explained very well which left me confused. Was not a fan, will give the second book a chance but not feeling very hopeful.

Favourite Series

This is probably my favourite series now. I can't wait to re-listen to all three books! These books have just enough of everything you could want: peril, companionship, epic scenes... etc.

Slow Burn But Wow it Was SOOOO Good!!

I really enjoyed this book. It took me a bit to get into it but the story really takes off and twists and turns. Near the end, I even cried a little. I can't wait to listen to the next two books and find out what happens. Her character really takes a journey to become this strong person, very enjoyable.

Decent story.

Narrator's inflection wasn't always correct. Author used some current day language with historical story setting.

Meh, it's ok.

The book is slow and lacks character development. It's not bad, just lacking. I really feel no good/bad connection to any character. They just are.

I didn't realize this was narrated by multiple people. Never a fan of that. You end up having one character with different personalities because they are being narrated by multiple people. It really throws of the feeling and connection with some characters!
