Waiting on Wednesday (#11)


Waiting on Wednesday is about sharing a book every week you cannot wait to be published. This week, I'm waiting on

(The Remnant Chronicles, #1)
 by Mary E. Pearson


Genre: Young Adult, High Fantasy, Romance, Historical Fiction

Pages: 496

Expected Publication: July 15, 2014

Publisher: Henry Holt and Co. (BYR)

Description from Goodreads:

In this timeless new trilogy about love and sacrifice, a princess must find her place in a reborn world.


In a society steeped in tradition, Princess Lia’s life follows a preordained course. As First Daughter, she is expected to have the revered gift of sight—but she doesn’t—and she knows her parents are perpetrating a sham when they arrange her marriage to secure an alliance with a neighboring kingdom—to a prince she has never met.


On the morning of her wedding, Lia flees to a distant village. She settles into a new life, hopeful when two mysterious and handsome strangers arrive—and unaware that one is the jilted prince and the other an assasin sent to kill her. Deception abounds, and Lia finds herself on the brink of unlocking perilous secrets—even as she finds herself falling in love.


Yay, another new high fantasy YA book series! The Kiss of Deception sounds so intriguing, and I haven't read a book about fairies (I think I saw it was about fairies somewhere??)  for a really long time so I'm pretty stoked about this one! Let's hope it ends up being as great as it sounds!
