THE KISS OF DECEPTION, by Mary E. Pearson

Kiss

The story: Lia, on the brink of being forced to marry someone she’s never even seen, takes her best friend Pauline and makes a run for it: fleeing for her life, her sanity, and a chance to live in a way that makes sense to her. She thinks she’s gotten away with it, too; never dreaming that of the two handsome young men who show up in her new place over the coming weeks, one is the prince she jilted, and the other an assassin sent to kill her. She must make another choice that will mean either life or death…and she doesn’t even know it.

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: This is the first in the Remnant Chronicles, a fantasy series that will appeal mostly to girls (although boys who like fantasy will like it too, if they can get past the girly picture on the cover!). Watch out, though: it’s pretty thick, and moves a little bit slowly at times, so it’s not for reading wimps!
