Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
The Heart of Betrayal by Mary E. Pearson
The Remnant Chronicles #2
Releases July 7th 2015 by Henry Holt and Co
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.
I’m waiting on this book because The Kiss of Deception was one of my favorite books of 2014. Ready to get back into these fantastic characters. Have you read the first book? Or, are you eagerly anticipating this as much as I am?
