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

Why I’m Waiting
I absolutely fell in love with The Kiss of Deception, and I seem to be one of the very few people who did not see the big plot twist coming and I was totally okay with that because it made it freaking awesome to read! With the way TKoD ended, I am SO excited to get my hands on The Heart of Betrayal and to find out how the rest of Lia’s story is going to go and what other absolutely crazy shit is going to happen!
What are you waiting on this week?
