"The Heart of Betrayal" (Book 2 of Remnant Chronicles) by Mary E. Pearson

The Heart of Betrayal by Mary E. Pearson is book two in the Remnant Chronicles series, the sequel to Kiss of Deception, which I LOVED. Lia and Kaden are taken as prisoners by the barbarians of Vaden and deception is prevalent in this book throughout, but not for the reader as it was in book one. Lia continues to be both feisty, brave and deceptive. She pretends not to care for Kaden in order to save his life while relying on Rafe, the assassin, to protect her. Tension between Kaden and Rafe continues to escalate, but they both love Lia. Lia and Kaden catch short times together to hatch an escape plan, that is even more urgent as Lia’s wedding to the Komizar fast approaches. There is some brutality in this book with lots of interesting characters and relationships. Will Rafe betray the Komizar to protect Lia? Will he kill Kaden? Will Griz get his revenge? Will Kaden and Lia be successful in their escape?

I LOVED this book so much! It moved along quickly and was as much fun to read as Kiss of Deception. I thought the funniest part was when Lia beat Griz at cards, but the saddest was when the Komizar killed the little girl. This is a good series that I’d recommend to anyone who enjoys adventure, romance and fantasy with royalty. I look forward to the next book to find out what happens! (5 stars)

"Every Last Word" by Tamara Ireland Stone is a Must Read

Every Last Word by Tamara Ireland Stone is about Samantha, a popular high schooler.  She hangs around with a popular group of girls that she has been with since kindergarten with a secret that she has kept hidden all this time.  What that is you will have to read this book to find out.  She gets an urge to leave the group, but does she have the courage?

WOW!  This book was really good!  I thought all the characters were well developed and got into it very quickly.  I really liked Samantha, the main character.  I did not see the twist coming at all and the ending was fantastic!  A must read!

"A Court of Thorns and Roses" by Sarah J. Maas

 A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas is about a young girl named Feyre.  She is the sole supporter for her family, a dad and her two sisters.  One day while hunting, she shoots a deer and a wolf that was going after the same deer she shot.  That was a BIG mistake as she soon found out.  Another wolf comes and gives her a choice to either be killed now or go live with the wolves.

This book was outstanding!  I LOVED the characters in it.  The middle dragged some but the last 100 plus pages more than made up for that.  I can't wait to read the second book in this series!

Teaser Tuesday--Four



Gerard's:

"I hid in the bathtub until help came.  A cop shot one of my dogs."

From page 13 of The Hand that Feeds You by A. J. Rich. (Click link for review)

When I just stared at him, he said, "For having the nerve to request where I slaughter you, I'll let you in on a secret, human:  Prythian must claim your life in some way, for the life you took from it.  So as a representative of the immortal realm, I can either gut you like swine, or . . . you can cross the wall and live out the remainder of your days in Prythian."
From page 37 of TA Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas.

Still, I can hear this one thought hiding in the dark corners of my mind.  It doesn't attack like the others.

From page 9 of Every Last Word by Tamara Ireland Stone.
Karen's
"No, tomorrow you won't."  In a move quick and precise, the sword cut the air, blood sprayed my horse's mane, and the man's head toppled to the ground.
From page 276 of The Heart of Betrayal (The Remnant Chronicles--Book 2) by Mary E. Paerson.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along, so I thought  I  would play for fun! Just pick two sentences from the book you are reading.

Happy Reading!
