She flees on her wedding day. She steals ancient documents from the Chancellor's secret collection. She is pursued by bounty hunters sent by her own father. She is Princess Lia, seventeen, First Daughter of the House of Morrighan.
The Kingdom of Morrighan is steeped in tradition and the stories of a bygone world, but some traditions Lia can't abide. Like having to marry someone she's never met to secure a political alliance.
Fed up and ready for a new life, Lia escapes to a distant village on the morning of her wedding. She settles in among the common folk, intrigued when two mysterious and handsome strangers arrive-and unaware that one is the jilted prince and the other an assassin sent to kill her.
Deceptions swirl and Lia finds herself on the brink of unlocking perilous secrets-secrets that may unravel her world-even as she feels herself falling in love.
Synopsis from Indigo.ca
One of my favourite Mary E. Pearson books is called “Scribbler of Dreams”. I first read it when I was in high school (wow, not to age myself, but that was over 10 years ago!) and have been waiting for another book from her to grab me as much as that one did. So I was really excited to read the Remnants series but a bit nervous that it would let me down.
I ended up falling in love with these characters – as much as I hate love triangles – and can’t wait to see where the series goes!
What I Liked:
I loved this book (and the book cover ;D) and can’t wait to read the rest of the series.
FINAL RATING: 4/5

Hi, I'm Alexandra! I love reading (largely YA fiction, but sometimes I'll read "adult" books), playing board games, Nutella, and binge-watching TV shows on Netflix with my husband.
