Review: Heart of Betrayal by Mary E. Pearson

Thursday, June 18, 2015
Why I chose this book:
Ever since I read Kiss of Deception, I knew I needed the next one. I had read it late last spring as an eARC, and after finishing it, I knew the wait would be utterly unbearable. I was fortunate enough to receive an ARC from the publisher at North Texas Teen Book Festival in Dallas, and when I held it in my hands, my heart sand with excitement! I received this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

The Heart of Betrayal by Mary E. Pearson
Publisher: Henry Holt and Co. Books for Young Readers
Release Date: July 7th, 2015
Format: ARC
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy

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. (Godreads)
