Publisher's Summary

Critically acclaimed author Jennifer A. Nielsen delivers the gripping second book of her New York Times best-selling epic young adult fantasy.

In this sequel to the instant New York Times best seller The Traitor's Game, Kestra Dallisor has finally gained possession of the Olden Blade. With the dagger in her control, she attempts to destroy the tyrannical Lord Endrick. But when Kestra fails, the king strips her of her memory and leaves her weak and uncertain, bound to obey him. 

Heartbroken, Simon is desperate to return Kestra to the rebel she was but refuses to use magic to heal her. With untrusting Coracks and Halderians threatening to capture and kill her and war looming on the horizon, Kestra and Simon will have to learn to trust each other again if they have any hope of surviving. But can a heart once broken ever be healed?

The Deceiver's Heart marks a stunning return to Jennifer A. Nielsen's gorgeously rendered world of Antora and all its treachery and magic.

A Fascinating Page Turning Adventure

I loved the first book in the series, so I did not think it was possible to love it more, but this book totally took the story to a new level. It is full of symbolism and parallels. The characters are unforgettable and lovable. I enjoyed every minute of it and it left me dying to read the next one.

I wanted to love this.........

I think this series had great possibilities, but this second book was so boring and so predictable I really had a hard time finishing it. I wasn’t even captivated to listen to the free excerpt at the end. Something interesting really needed to happen, and it never did. Save your money, and go for Delirium or some other dystopian novel. But this novel feels like the author had to meet a deadline and she was fresh out of inspiration and ideas.
