synopsis (From goodreads)
THIS IS BOOK 2 IN THE SERIES, SO SYNOPSIS MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS FOR BOOK 1!
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 absolutely adored The Kiss of Deception when I read it last year and it made my favorites of 2014. I have had this book pre-ordered since I finished the first book, and the struggle has been real. I cannot wait to have this in my hands finally.
