The Heart of Betrayal (The Remnant Chronicles #2) by Mary E. Pearson (Review)

   The second installment of the Remnant Chronicles, The Heart of Betrayal continues the breathtaking and intense story of Lia, a runaway princess captured by the enemy kingdom. She is confronted with the hard choices in this strange kingdom were she is captive, where she is faced with danger and lies around every turn. With not just her life on the line, but many others, what will she do?
    The Heart of Betrayal has a very different feel from it's predecessor, The Kiss of  Deception. In the first novel it was lighthearted more often then not, but in this novel things got serious and dangerous. Although this novel feels different, it fit right in with the series and took Lia's story to a whole other level. I found the characters and settings in this novel to be potent and well developed. I wasn't hard to get sucked into The Heart of Betrayal. I did struggle a bit to enjoy the sheer quantity of politics there seemed to be in this novel, apposed to The Kiss of Deception. There were moments of the novel that seemed a little like time fillers more then key plot points. That aside, the novel was pretty riveting and left me wanting more. I am very excited for the next installment of the series. The Heart of Betrayal was a great read and I'd recommend it to light fantasy or historic romance lovers. I give The Heart of Betrayal FOUR STARS OUT OF FIVE!
