Really good book-but I have to admit that I almost quit before getting to the good stuff. For anyone considering reading-just hang in there and finish the book, it will get better.

I didn't expect this to be such a good book. One would think this is those particular YA book with young romance and royal fantasy. But this book is nothing close to that. Lia, the heroine, is such a strong and self-resilient character. The character building is so good, world building is really fantasized and dark. There are magic, royal, spiritual, ancients and different cultures involved. Such an interesting YA fantasy. Can't wait to see the sequal.

Another YA Fantasy about a princess? At first I was skeptical, but this was actually a really good read. The pacing is slower, switching between three different characters and telling the tale of a princess who runs away from her arranged marriage to live a normal life. If you like action packed books, this won't really be for you, as the story is more focused on drama and characters than plot, and follows the relationship developing between the princess and two boys she meets. Obviously, that also means this is more a romantic fantasy than anything else. Still, an enjoyable read with appropriate content for young adults. Its well written, and the characters are lovely.

If you read this book, you should listen to the song of, "King" by Lauren Aquilina.

OMG such a good book! But, before you read: Kaden is the Assassin, Rafe is the Prince. I swear, I went most of the book thinking the opposite. I wish someone had told me this!

I absolutely adored this book because of the strong heroine. It may sound like a bad book when it says one boy is a prince another one an assassin trying to kill her. However, the romance was impeccable. One that easily rivals the romance in the Red Queen series. I'm very glad there are two books after this one otherwise, I don't know what I would do.

Kiss of deception was a really good book! I'm not much of a long novel girl, but i must say that i really loved it! Lia the young princess was so strong and fearless, I really appreciate that the other made the lead female strong and brave. I enjoyed the romance, and the book took crazy turns, drawing you in more and more. In the end I was totally wrong about who was who, which made it all the more better. I recommend this book to teen girls and am really exited for the second book!
