A deeply satisfying, intricately plotted fantasy where no one - no one - is quite what they seem . . . A thoroughly engrossing read - I couldn't put it down!
A sumptuous fantasy
This is the kind of story I love - a heart-pounding tale of magic and murder, betrayal and romance set in a richly imagined fantasy landscape
Extraordinary . . . masterfully crafted
The Kiss of Deception has it all - beautiful writing, heart-pounding suspense, a fiery princess, and an epic romance that'll make you swoon. This is definitely one of my favorite reads of the year!
Gripping, urgent, and highly appealing
Pearson offers readers a wonderfully full-bodied story: harrowing, romantic, and full of myth and memory, fate and hope
In The Kiss of Deception, a new realm is masterfully created, featuring court intrigue, feuding nations, breathtaking landscapes, and the gift of sight. Fans of the Game of Thrones series will enjoy the magic and fantasy in this timeless dystopian world
Fantastical . . . a lot of mystery that spices up the book
Pearson's first book in her Remnant Chronicles is thrilling. Readers will be hooked from the first page to the last and will find themselves eagerly anticipating the next instalment. Pearson pairs a rich and varied plot with a fiery and headstrong heroine
Pearson's writing is beautiful, and her ability to twist a plot into knots keeps the reader wanting more
A marvelous new fantasy series that is sure to find an audience with devotees of Suzanne Collins's The Hunger Games and John Flanagan's Ranger's Apprentice books (Philomel). Romance, adventure, mysticism--this book has it all and it just may be the next YA blockbuster
After her strong Jenna Fox series, Pearson adeptly switches gears here from science fiction to fantasy, but her ability to write a romance featuring complex characters and a strong plot remains constant
