The Traitor's Kiss
The Traitor's Kiss | Erin Beaty
An obstinate girl who will not be married. A soldier desperate to prove himself. A kingdom on the brink of war. With a sharp tongue and an unruly temper, Sage Fowler is not what theyd call a proper ladywhich is perfectly fine with her. Deemed unfit for a suitable marriage, Sage is apprenticed to a matchmaker and tasked with wrangling other young ladies to be married off for political alliances. She spies on the girlsand on the soldiers escorting them. As the girls' military escort senses a political uprising, Sage is recruited by a handsome soldier to infiltrate the enemy ranks. The more she discovers as a spy, the less certain she becomes about whom to trustand Sage becomes caught in a dangerous balancing act that will determine the fate of her kingdom. With secret identities and a tempestuous romance, Erin Beaty's The Traitors Kiss is full of intrigue, espionage, and lies. An Imprint Book "One of the most hotly anticipated young adult fantasy reads of 2017 Bustle "An action-packed, expertly plotted story, drenched in double crosses and intrigue, with an irresistible heroine and a sweet and sexy romance.Publishers Weekly, starred review "Complex characterization, deftly layered adventure story, and [a] balanced blend of political maneuvering, romantic interludes, and action scenes."

(Just HAD to take a pretty pic, as the cover & spine are gorgeous). Anyway, this book ended up surprising the heck out of me. I was actually starting to feel kind of let down because the writer is so sweet, but I was feeling a bit bored & confused for the 1st half of it. And then I wasn‘t. I had been tricked, just like Sage was (great writing) & it became awesome! Love the cunning & wits of the MCs. Love their relationship. Ordering the next 2.

I absolutely really enjoyed reading this book. There's romance, adventures and mysteries. The story, in my opinion, was inspired by Mulan, but in a very unique way. It's definitely the kind of book that will have you worried for the characters and that you won't put down.
I really recommend this one!

This was such a fun book, I read it in one sitting. Not really remarkable or all that different from other YA fantasy; it felt familiar. Even so, I loved it and was fully absorbed in the espionage and romance. It also broke a massive reading slump and reminded me how I love being immersed in a good story. Fantastic read. ❤️❤️

JSW Also I never figured out who was the traitor and who they kissed. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 1y
JSW @JoScho this is the book that brought me back from my slump. 👍🏼 1y

Why would you kill off the best character and then expect the reader to still care whether or not the main dude ends up with his little girlfriend?!

I'm only a few chapters in but I'm already struggling with the alternating POV. I have no interest in the second character yet and I'm tempted to skip through his chapters. From a hint the company made, its sequel may be part of my subscription box this month. I'm torn. Continue or put it on the back burner?

I really enjoyed this book- definitely going to read the next one when it comes out. The centre of the story is very much the espionage and it was really compelling! With some new tea as a treat. #YA #fantasy

My June reads! A few days late but it's been a hectic weekend. My reread of Heir of Fire was so great. I forgot so many details in that book. The Traitor's Kiss was def one of my favorite books I read last month. Totally recommend that. We Are Making... (a Goodreads win!) and The Sandmeyer Reaction (from Summer Santa Goes Postsl!) were such joys to read and super quick. Tales From Augusta was super cool with fun stories! I enjoyed this month.

Ok, so there was a lot I really liked about the book. The plot and world building were fabulous and the hero "Mouse" was complex and interesting BUT I have to agree with some other reviews I've read, There is some iffy racial stereotyping happening in parts of the book and the heroine is really unnecessarily mean in parts and judgy about other girls.

Mdargusch Love the cover tho 3y

I liked this book! The ending reminded me of Royal Bastards. I really enjoyed the main characters and despite all the "people pretending to be other people," I was able to pretty easily keep track of everyone. I liked the links between politics and military and the role of the matchmakers in everything. Another book where I thought "oh, i like this character...they're definitely not going to survive" and I was right...another George RR Martin ??

Honestly? I was underwhelmed. I bought it based off the gorgeous cover, but the story was lackluster. I found myself skimming through and not connecting with the characters. I truly couldn't have cared less whether they lived or died? The military and politics of the book's world were boring and there were also several moments that felt especially dark, out of sync with the rest of the story. It wasn't bad but I didn't love it.

Marchpane Well at least it's pretty 🌹🌸🌷🌺 3y

Omg I'm so happy this is a series! And no there wasn't a cliffhanger I just need more of this world! I am in love with Sage, Alex, Ash, and all the amazing characters! I normally don't love fantasies that don't have magic but I loved this! The world building was amazing and like I said the characters were fantastic! Book 2 now please!!!
