Publisher's Summary

Held captive in the barbarian kingdom of Venda, Lia and Rafe have little chance of escape...and even less of being together.

Desperate to save her life, Lia's erstwhile assassin, Kaden, has told the Vendan Komisar that she has a magical gift, and the Komisar's interest in Lia is greater than either Kaden or Lia foresaw.

Meanwhile the foundations of Lia's deeply held beliefs are crumbling beneath her. Nothing is straightforward: There's Rafe, who lied to her but has sacrificed his freedom to protect her; Kaden, who meant to assassinate her but has now saved her life; and the Vendans, whom she always believed to be barbarians but whom she now realizes are people who have been terribly brutalized by the kingdoms of Dalbreck and Morrighan. Wrestling with her upbringing, her gift, and her very sense of self, Lia will have to make powerful choices that affect her country, her people...and her own destiny.

Read by Emily Rankin, with Ryan Gesell, Kirby Heyborne, Kim Mai Guest, and Ann Marie Lee.

    "Great story, can't wait for book 3!"

    Ive loved this series! It has a great storyline, with a love triangle but different from the usual love triangle scenarios that are easy to predict. It's very well written by the author. I thought the 2nd book kept my interest just as much as the first book, although it did tend to run a little long in some areas, but still held my attention that I didn't want to put it down.
    For the most part the performances by the narrators were good, although I was not crazy about the voice of Cayden. Thought he was a little bit robotic and creepy sounding.... Great series though and can't wait for book 3

    "New favorite book and narration"

    Wonderful. The story itself and the narration. Even better than the first in the series.

    "Okay"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I wouldn't stop anyone from reading/listening to it--but I also wouldn't heartily recommend it. I think it might have been better read than as an audiobook, as sometimes I got confused by the gaps in changing POVs and where we were in the timeline of events.


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    I liked the person who played Rafe--the voice matched the character.


    Any additional comments?

    I was slightly disappointed with this. I bought it as a road trip listen, and it took me months to finish it because I just couldn't get into it until midway through. I don't think the character development was totally there, or at least it wasn't consistent with the characters as I recall them from the first book, and that comes across more when you hear it aloud than when you read it.

    "I love all the characters even more in the second book."

    This book made me love all the characters in their own special way! I can't decide who I want Leah to end up with. Raff and Kaden are both so sweet to her, but very different. Book 3 can't come fast enough!

    "just ok"

    first off audible did not list this as a second book in series. I was having a hard time following it. I was thinking man this reads as a second book not a first. I can't figure who these characters are. so I googled the book and author. and yep it was a second in series. but other that that it was OK. I just wished the princess was tougher. it kind of drug a bit.

    "loved and annoyed all rolled into one"

    i didn't want it to end..the back story, the characters, the new found knowledge left me wanting more. although I was irritated at times with Kaden, he will be a good friend. I am rooting for Rafe but I know how bull headed and stubborn he is. They are both still so naive in different aspects, but Lia seems to be the most naive of them all. She's just as stubborn and at times pisses me off. However, I do like the fact that she's willing to grow and tries to understand different views.

    "Another fantastic novel!"

    Pearson does not disappoint! The second installment is so much better than the first and again the voice performances were superb. This story keeps me holding on with every chapter, giving me white knuckles at times! There's so many great things happening in this book and I'm so glad I found this series.

    "Richly detailed fantasy adventure"

    I loved this sequel to Kiss of Deception, the different cultures that we are introduced to are so beautifully described and well thought out. This series is quickly becoming one of my favourites, I can't wait to read Beauty of Darkness and see how it ends!
