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 assassin 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. The Kiss of Deceptionis the first audiobook in Mary E.

i wanted a warrior female and got a cheerleader

im so disappointed to not enjoy this book. i think the idea for the story is great and the cover work really seduced me. i enjoyed the first 15 mins of the audiobook then rapidly became mortified at certain aspects.
1 the lack of depth at the princess's mind set (no deep emotions? she comes across as a silly teenager, giggling and leaving the world in threads at her choice, shes poilt and destroys items work huge amounts of money in a land where many are poor, and acts like the world owes her a lot of favorites. shes of weak mindset, and not a strong minded hero i hoped for)
2 lack of action. this book feels like we are waiting for something to happen, that never does.
3 a dumb donkey joke. the princess makes a joke about the smell of fish. the friend says she smells of fish, the donkey makes a noise in reply. its all HA HA HA.
(or maybe no. maybe its all scooby do in the 80s) i had to stop after that.

i decided to return the book and not continue, perhaps its because im in my 30s and need another type of fantasy book but some of the best books ive read are YA so this one was a surprised.

i know some will hate this review, but thats my take on it and believe me i really wanted to like this book!
