REVIEW | The Kiss of Deception – Mary E. Pearson

It can take years to mold a dream. It takes only a fraction of a second for it to be shattered.

I definitely cannot wait to dive into the next one! Although slow – which isn’t always a bad thing – and featuring some of my most disliked tropes, it pulled me out of a reading slump – the need to know how these interconnecting paths resolve keeping me going.

Terravin, which takes up most of the book, was leisurely, giving up snippets to build us up for things to come – but they really were snippets, and this section didn’t need to be so long. Not a whole lot happens during Lia’s, our main character – a princess who has fled an arranged marriage, time there. And some of the stories woven in, although fleshing some more minor characters out a bit, didn’t really add anything.

The last, maybe third – maybe quarter, of the book picked up a bit though. I would have liked more action, but I was not ready for it to end.

About Me

Books and food enthusiast. I discovered a love for reading in my late teens, so you’ll see me catching up on older series quite often. I also love to travel around the UK, where I live, and picking up some crafty hobbies – I hope to share snippets of this amongst all the book content. Other interests include gaming, podcasts, drinking too much tea, and trying to personify autumn.
