Waiting on Wednesday: The Heart of Betrayal by Mary E. Pearson

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.

This week, what's really got my pages in a twist is... 

The Heart of Betrayal
(The Remnant Chronicles #2)
Publication Date: July 7, 2015
Hardcover, 470 pages, Henry Holt & Co.
Genres: YA, Fantasy

Intrigue abounds in this hotly anticipated sequel to The Kiss of Deception!

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.

My Thoughts

I haven’t read The Kiss of Deception yet. I’m waiting for this book to come out before I read it. And by that time I may decide to wait until book #3 comes out, just so I don’t have to wait to read them all. Unless there isn’t going to be a book #3… I’m not sure if this is a trilogy, duology, or a series. Someone HELP!

What book are you waiting for this Wednesday?


  1. I hope you enjoy the book! Check out my WoW!

  2. I just finished the first book last week. I was thinking the second book was already out. I should have checked because now I'm mad I have to wait. It's a good thing you're waiting to read them. I did really enjoy it though. I hate waiting so long between books. At least I didn't read it when it came out back in October then I really would have cried.

  3. I think it's a trilogy. I read the first one and while I felt it was a tad over-hyped and didn't rave over it like a lot of other people, I did enjoy it enough to want to check out this next installment. It's a great cover by the way.


I LOVE your comments! And I do read all of them so keep at it! Thanks for visiting!
