A princess must find her place in a reborn world.

She flees on her wedding day.
She steals ancient documents from the Chancellor’s secret collection.
She is pursued by bounty hunters sent by her own father.
She is Princess Lia, seventeen, First Daughter of the House of Morrighan.

The Kingdom of Morrighan is steeped in tradition and the stories of a bygone world, but some traditions Lia can’t abide. Like having to marry someone she’s never met to secure a political alliance.

Fed up and ready for a new life, Lia flees to a distant village on the morning of her wedding. She settles in among the common folk, intrigued when two mysterious and handsome strangers arrive—and unaware that one is the jilted prince and the other an assassin sent to kill her. Deceptions swirl and Lia finds herself on the brink of unlocking perilous secrets—secrets that may unravel her world—even as she feels herself falling in love.

Quotes & Awards

  • "The Kiss of Deception has it all—beautiful writing, heart-pounding suspense, a fiery princess, and an epic romance that’ll make you swoon. This is definitely one of my favorite reads of the year!”

    Alyson Noël, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Immortals

  • "The Kiss of Deception is a deeply satisfying, intricately plotted fantasy where no one—no one—is quite what they seem. Full of lush writing and rich, complex characters, readers will quickly become enmeshed in the intricate web of lies that have been woven into the very fabric of the kingdom itself. A thoroughly engrossing read—I couldn’t put it down!”

    Robin LaFevers, New York Times bestselling author of Grave Mercy

  • “This is the kind of story I love—a heart-pounding tale of magic and murder, betrayal and romance set in a richly imagined fantasy landscape.”

    Cinda Williams Chima, New York Times bestselling author of the Seven Realms and the Heir Chronicles

  • “The first in a marvelous new fantasy series that is sure to find an audience with devotees of Suzanne Collins’s The Hunger Games…Romance, adventure, mysticism—this book has it all and it just may be the next YA blockbuster.”

    School Library Journal (starred review)

  • “Pearson offers readers a wonderfully full-bodied story: harrowing, romantic, and full of myth and memory, fate and hope…this has the sweep of an epic tale.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “Peppered with excerpts from sacred texts and traditional songs, the novel has a formidable heroine at its core, who is as quick with a knife as she is to laugh or cry. Pearson maintains the mystery of Rafe and Kaden’s identities, pulling readers through this masterfully crafted story.”

    Publishers Weekly, (starred review)
