Reviewed by Claudette Stockwell, Assistant Director
The first in the Remnant Chronicles, The Kiss of Deception has everything a person could want in a story. Romance, intrigue, suspense, page turning, nail biting intensity are all key parts to the beginning of this series. A princess, believed to carry the “gift” of sight, is set to marry a prince she has never met to help her father forge an alliance necessary for the survival of their kingdom. She is no ordinary princess though and with an independent streak she will forge her own way. With no true gift of sight, she sets off on her wedding day to make her own path. She does not realize that not only will the prince try to find her but an assassin as well. She covers her path as she goes but it will not be long before both the prince and the assassin will find her. In jeopardy and unaware, she will fall in love and put herself in the greatest danger of all.
