Waiting on Wednesday #60: The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature created by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This is where you showcase an upcoming release you're anxiously awaiting!

This week, I'm waiting on:
The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson.

Expected Publication: July 15, 2014.
by: Henry Holt.

Goodreads Synopsis:
In this timeless new trilogy about love and sacrifice, a princess must find her place in a reborn world.

In a society steeped in tradition, Princess Lia’s life follows a preordained course. As First Daughter, she is expected to have the revered gift of sight—but she doesn’t—and she knows her parents are perpetrating a sham when they arrange her marriage to secure an alliance with a neighboring kingdom—to a prince she has never met.

On the morning of her wedding, Lia flees to a distant village. She settles into a new life, hopeful when two mysterious and handsome strangers arrive—and unaware that one is the jilted prince and the other an assasin sent to kill her. Deception abounds, and Lia finds herself on the brink of unlocking perilous secrets—even as she finds herself falling in love.

Why I'm excited:
Does this not sound like a FABULOUS fantasy or what? Gah, the promise of deception provides lots of opportunities for exciting drama and in a fantasy setting... well, I'm drooling. Plus that cover is pretty gorgeous!

What are you waiting on this week?
