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, Lias 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....

The Heart of Betrayal (The Remnant Chronicles #2) Reviews
Although I feel like the plot didn't move forward for quite a while, I REALLY enjoyed this book and felt like I was more engaged with the narrative than I was with book 1. I listened to the audiobook and the cast of narrators and voice acting was superb. I enjoyed being back in this world, seeing the characters for who they really are (instead of all the disguises from book 1) and especially enjoyed seeing how fierce Lia is! I really have no idea where the story is going after that ending, but I ...more
Der zweite Band konnte mich leider nicht mehr so sehr begeistern wie der erste (was bei Trilogien leider häufig der Fall ist). Die Handlung plätscherte die ganze Zeit ziemlich ruhig daher und es kam für mich keine richtige Spannung auf. Auch hatte ich gehofft ein paar fragen aus dem ersten Band beantwortet zu bekommen, was leider auch nicht der Fall war (ich hoffe stark auf den nächsten Band!). Auch bin ich mir nicht sicher was ich davon halten soll, dass die Dreiecksbeziehung hier so ...more
The Remnant Chronicles Spoiler Free Series Review: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XMS-6...
A little slow in the beginning but then I was completely blown away with the different twist and turns!
*When you scroll down the review list of this book, and everybody has this rated as a five star.....*
You may leave now if you loved this book.
FOR THOSE OF YOU STILL HERE:
Welcome to Jeff's ranting of horrible books.
This was nothing compared to the first one.
There was just no action at all. AT ALL.
I swear, the WHOLE FREAKING BOOK was spent on Lia debating which guy had nicer muscles.
Like, I don't mind that!
Muscles are important in my opinion.
Nice arms are top priority, ...more
Warning: If you haven't read The Kiss of Deception, please do not read this review.
With my last dying breath, I would make him regret the day he ever laid eyes on me. —Lia
Ouch. That ending was utterly painful. The last time I felt this way was when I read The Winner's Crime. There were so many evocative scenes crammed into the last hundred pages. My brother recently asked what's wrong with me because I couldn't help but verbally express my shock and indignation at everything that happened to Lia ...more
I think this book fell victim to a very specific problem I have now with YA fantasy books. I read book 1 before I read Six of Crows, and it was pretty good. I read this one after I read Six of Crows and suddenly, I've read better and everything in this was cliche and the characters weren't that great and the dialogue was cheesy and the magic system was unrealistic and underexplained.
Maybe if I'd read this closer to book one I would have enjoyed it, but reading this my eyes were rooooll ...more
Well now I need book 3!
Mega enttäuscht - weiß noch nicht ob ich überhaupt den dritten Band weiterlesen soll...
