The Remnant Chronicles by Mary E. Pearson

Book One

A princess must find her place in a reborn world.

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 flees 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.

Even though I was able to predict the mystery of the book, I still loved this book. For me, this book definitely lived up to the hype! I loved every moment of this book, and I am so glad that I finally got around to reading it. I don't want to spoil this book for anyone, so I don't want to say too much. I might write a longer review in the future, but right now I am too focused on devouring book two. I need it. Right now.

Book Two

Held captive in the barbarian kingdom of Venda, Lia and Rafe have little chance of escape. Desperate to save her life, Lia's 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 barbarians. Now that she lives amongst 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.

I just finished this book, and I don't know how to move on in life. I am amazed and speechless. This book was everything I hoped for in the sequel, and more. I honestly think this one of the best sequels I have ever read.

Mary's writing in this book was phenomenal. The world building continued to amaze me. The conversations were all interesting and never seem unnecessary. The romance was wonderfully written, and it never seemed to take over the plot or seem unrealistic. The characters in this book developed even more, and I was not expecting that at all. I have grown to seriously love all of these characters. Each character was unique and so dimensional. I even liked the villain in this story. I could never figure out what he was up to, and I loved learning more and more about him. I could go on and on about how wonderful the character were. 

The book left off on a cliffhanger that killed me. I need the next book, NOW. I NEED ANSWERS. 

Please, go read this wonderful book. If you liked the first book, you will be blown away by this book.
