Review of the Heart of Betrayal by Mary E. Pearson

Title: The Heart of Betrayal

Author: Mary E. Pearson
Series: The Remnant Chronicles Book 2
Publisher: Henry Holt and Co. 


Held captive in the barbarian kingdom of Venda, Lia and Rafe have little chance of escape. Desperate to save Lia’s life, her 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 savages. Now that she lives among 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.
Rating: I will be giving this book a 4 out of 5 stars. This book picks up right where it left off and let me tell you be ready, if you are going to read this book, to have your heart pulled out. There was so much going on between the politics and the romance that overall this book was amazing. The charcters become more developed and you get more into their back story and how they became the people they are, but you also get to see what is going on in Lia’s country. I truly enjoyed this book and if you have already finished the first one and you are a little hesitant to pick up the second one like I was, don’t be, this author does not dissapoint and this book went beyond even what I expected.
