So guys, I’ve read The kiss of Deception by Mary.E.Pearson a while ago, in March this year to be exact. I gave it 3 stars because I find it so boring! I actually bought the book because of the hype, everybody was/is gushing about the plot twist and stuffs.
The thing is after I finished the book in March, I was completely lost. I didn’t see any plot twists, I actually skimmed the last 30-50 pages. It was just so boring and even though there were actions at the end, it wasn’t enough.
I even tried to search through the web about the plot twist but most reviews were non-spoiler and I also didn’t care much. So I gave up the research.
Recently I have asked my friend who has just finished the book, if she liked it. And she got all jumpy and excited that it was so good. So I asked her about the plot twist. And she said ‘Because there were two guy in the book, the prince and the assassin. You couldnt figure who was who, and when you thought you got it right, the finally revelation about their identity will shock you!’
I was like ‘what?’
I mean it’s because I figured who the assassin and the prince was since the beginning, so I had no idea what everyone was so excited about.
Even though, I was kinda disappointed with the promised-plot twist, there were some other problems. The story was soooooooo boring (I keep saying that), nothing happened! It wasn’t until the last 100 pages or so but there wasn’t much actions then too like I said in the beginning. I actually almost gave up half way. And Lia (the princess) is definitely not my favorite character. (Lia, thinking of BookLand, but I like Lia from BookLand lol)
And for The heart of Betrayal, I think I’ll download the ebook, because I fear I won’t like the sequel that much too.
Have you guys read the first book? The second one? Tell me your thoughts! Should I buy the second book? Is it better?
