Maid of Deception by Jennifer McGowan download in ePub, pdf, iPad
The ending felt a bit rushed to me, and I was hoping for some more honest, deception-free interactions between Beatrice and Alasdair, but on the whole I really enjoyed reading this. The really interesting thing about the interactions in this novel is that Beatrice sees the queen in a completely different light than Meg did. Though I was initially apprehensive about it since Beatrice is my least favourite of the Maids of Honor, I found myself really liking her as the story progressed.
Also, she clearly doesn't love Cavanaugh, but she likes the idea that he loves her and she'd agree to marry him because of it. Meg practically worshipped her. But it's clear that England, Scotland and France have a huge power struggle, and I'm interested to see how that pans out in this series. In fact, it was weird to see the queen showing such distaste for one of her maids. He's not secretive about his feelings for Beatrice at all, and it was refreshing to see how straightforward he is.
They really don't like each other, and it shows. At the beginning, Beatrice struck me as the same airhead-like girl from the previous book - she was just focused on her marriage and nothing else. The quest will instruct you to travel to the town of Jonestead. Maid of Deception follows Beatrice Knowles, the manipulative one.
While there is no explicit nudity in-game, source textures use naked body textures. Alasdair is the love interest in this book, as you can tell from the synopsis. Beatrice's story was exciting to read, and I commend McGowan for another riveting installment in the series.
The descendants of the two maids - the Pinder family - would face persecution by a resurgent Purity as retaliation for their defeat. The reasons for how and why the rivalry started have long been forgotten by both sides of the conflict.
But as Beatrice spends more time with him, she learns more than she ever would have wanted about the Scottish rebellion and Alasdair's role in it. Beatrice, though, has a very strained relationship with her. And I'm definitely looking forward to seeing who we get next. Maid of Deception is no exception. She comes into her powers properly, so people at court have begun to take notice.
Meg's become pretty close to Jane, the slightly violent and totally badass girl in the group. But he's different in this one, described as gorgeous even.
She knows how to use her charms to get men to tell her anything, which is why her skills are so useful at court. It's also admirable how much strength she has, though she never really shows it to anyone. Yet the mercenary group founded by the family remains strong and has undergone drastic transformations. This book has more focus on Sophia, the quiet Seer. But there are things he's hiding, of course.
