Title: The Heart of Betrayal (The Remnant Chronicles #2)
Author: Mary E. Pearson
Publisher: Henry Holt and Co. (Macmillan)
Release Date: July 7, 2015
Intrigue abounds in this hotly anticipated sequel to The Kiss of Deception!
Held captive in the barbarian kingdom of Venda, Lia and Rafe have little chance of escape. Desperate to save her life, Lia's erstwhile assassin, Kaden, has told the Vendan Komizar that she has the gift, and the Komizar's interest in Lia is greater than anyone could have foreseen.
Meanwhile, nothing is straightforward: there's Rafe, who lied to Lia, but has sacrificed his freedom to protect her; Kaden, who meant to assassinate her but has now saved her life; and the Vendans, whom Lia always believed to be barbarians. Now that she lives amongst them, however, she realizes that may be far from the truth. Wrestling with her upbringing, her gift, and her sense of self, Lia must make powerful choices that will affect her country... and her own destiny.
Look at that gorgeous cover! It is soooo much better than The Kiss of Deception. Kayla and I both loved The Kiss of Deception, so we're both excited about the sequel and its awesome cover. You can read Kayla's review here and mine here.
