I could think of A LOT better nominees for Teens' Top Ten....

The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson

The Kiss of Deception

By: Mary E. Pearson

Genre: YA fantasy

Pages: 489

Published: 2014

Read: August

2.5 out of 5

One of the nominees for Teens’ Top Ten for 2015.  

I do not normally enjoy fantasy novels, so I am probably not the best person to review this novel. However, I read a variety of genres, especially in YA, to remain current. While it is well written and I appreciate that teens may love it; I did not care for it. I felt it was very predictable and figured out the “mystery” early on. Therefore, the middle dragged and I struggled to get through it. If you want to try a fantasy novel, I recommend Grave Mercy by Robin LeFevers (2012) instead. I enjoyed it much better and plan on reading the entire His Fair Assassin trilogy (one day).
