About "Mary E. Pearson"

  1. Mary E. Pearson

    I suppose I have always been enad with story and character My mother tells me I could be the most annoying little kid, waking up each day as a new character Every morning she would have to ask me who I was for that day, because unless properly addressed I refused to answer anyone One time when I was about four years old, my parents were out shopping at Sears They each thought the other had me by the hand when in fact I was exploring my own aisle translation I was lost Two salesladies found me and sat me on the counter, asking me my name so they could page my parents I remember their consternation when I would only answer Little Red Riding Hood They couldn t shake my real name out of me no how, no way I knew the value of persistence even then My parents say they nearly fell over, when over the loud speaker they heard, Would the parents of Little Red Riding Hood please come claim their child They knew exactly who was lost These days I mostly wake up as myself, though I do seem to hang out with a lot of characters during the day.Usually when people mention their education in their bios they only mention their college degrees, but to me, it is just as important what happened way before that Wow second grade I will never forget Mrs Alsenz Boy, could she tell a great story She would make them up and pretty soon have a classroom of wiggly kids exuberantly telling stories right along with her And then there was Mrs Bonsey in fourth grade She always praised my writing and made a shy little girl feel like she might actually excel at something And finally in twelfth grade came Mr Kirk, crusty on the outside with a heart of gold on the inside, who loved the English language and taught his students to do the same Hey, Mr Kirk, do you see me waving at ya Later I went on to get a BFA from Long Beach State University in art I worked for a time as an artist then started the most challenging job of my life motherhood Holy smokes, no one told me there would be no coffee breaks But it is the most rewarding job I have ever had watch out I ll start dragging out the pictures Still later, I went to San Diego State University where I received my teaching credential I went on to teach many different grades but it was my second grade students who pushed me back into writing During Writing Workshop I would sit with them and write, loving the process, loving the stories, and lo and behold deciding I would love to return to my first love That s a whole lot of lovin going on and luckily for me I was able to do just that Not that writing is easy I have a huge stack of rejections to prove it, but I still have enough of that Little Red Riding Hood persistence in me to keep on going.Now I write full time from my home in San Diego My books to date are The Adoration of Jenna Fox, A Room on Lorelei Street, Scribbler of Dreams, and David v God More are definitely on the way.

  1. This book far surpassed the first one, and the first one was one of my favorites of 2014 I do not know what to do with myself while I wait for the last book This series takes so many unexpected twists, and tips out my heart at every turn I cannot wait for what I m sure will be a breathtaking finale.


  2. Well, first off this love triangle thing needs to stop because it s getting on my nerves but I m hoping it has fizzled out for the last book The next thing That ending I mean there was one good part that probably will be one of those, we were kidding moments, but there was a really sad part and I don t like it Lia was so tough as nails in this book I mean there as one part where she had a moment but it was to be expected But ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, I m really hoping she got her revenge Lia [...]


  3. I m not saying Mary Pearson wrote this book just to hurt me, but there s no proof that she didn t Oh my gosh, I love it.Oh my gosh, the wait for the next book might be the death of me.

  5. So, this is only my second book by Mary E Pearson, but I must say, my experience both times left me like this And I have every intention of picking up the Jenna Fox Chronicles after such an awesome time with this series, but you know how it isAnyway, this book picks up right where we left off in The Kiss of Deception There s some of this And some of this, as our girl puts two and two together Can t say I blame her really, after all she s been through And how much trouble could have been avoided [...]





  6. An Advanced Reader Copy was provided by the publisher for review.This sequel ripped me apart and put me back together again I was constantly wondering what other twist and turn was going to happen, which person should they trust And what exactly was going on between the political parties between the kingdoms I loved that this was set in Venda for we get to see another kingdom that doesn t rely on its resources but on its leader Even if that leader happens to be the Komizar Chapters are short so [...]



  7. When you scroll down the review list of this book, and everybody has this rated as a five star Alright, peoples.Friends.You may leave now if you loved this bookR THOSE OF YOU STILL HERE Welcome to Jeff s ranting of horrible books.This was nothing compared to the first one There was just no action at all AT ALL.I swear, the WHOLE FREAKING BOOK was spent on Lia debating which guy had nicer muscles.Like, I don t mind that Muscles are important in my opinion Nice arms are top priority, I understand [...]


  8. Because with my last dying breath, I would make him regret the day he ever laid eyes on me I m still unsure whether I should consider this series as guilty pleasure or not I still haven t been able to peg it It s as if it lives in this sort of limbo, where you have this astonishingly intelligent writing and world building on one hand, andtons of ya tropes on the other, love triangle included And the I think about it, the I realize I actually like the in between sort of story that came out of i [...]


  9. If you weren t a fan of the first book and some of my friends were not , then I don t think anything about this book is going to change your mind Sorry.BuuuutIf you ve been chomping at the bit because maybe you re a horse to find out what happened to Lia, Raffe, Kaden once they got inside the walls of Venda Then I think you ll be pretty happy with Pearson s book Secrets, magic, prophesies, and as the title suggests betrayal Good stuff.Best part of the book for me The Heart of Betrayal is exactly [...]


  10. See this review and on bookbastion___________________This one might win the award for toughest review of 2017 You might remember my earlier review for the first book in the series The Kiss of Deception, which I loved and showered praise on While I was really excited to crack into this one, and still really enjoyed it, I felt a little let down.One of the biggest disappointments to me in this book revolved around the situation Lia found herself in But Bentley, you say, isn t that the point of con [...]


  11. Are you f cking kidding me You can t end a book like that and expect me to wait a whole year I won t survive this.


  12. Warning If you haven t read The Kiss of Deception, please do not read this review.With my last dying breath, I would make him regret the day he ever laid eyes on me LiaOuch That ending was utterly painful The last time I felt this way was when I read The Winner s Crime There were so many evocative scenes crammed into the last hundred pages My brother recently asked what s wrong with me because I couldn t help but verbally express my shock and indignation at everything that happened to Lia and he [...]


  13. 5 5 starsThe Remnant Chronicles Spoiler Free Series Review youtube watch v XMS 6A little slow in the beginning but then I was completely blown away with the different twist and turns



  14. Ok wow I am so glad I read this again before the final book SO MANY FEELS.I forgot how perfect the aesthetic of Venda is The city, market, and catacombs were so freaking cool Again, the worldbuilding in this series is incredibly solid And the tone in this book was a little bit darker than the first one and the pacing was slower, but it totally worked I liked that the story mostly stayed in Venda and was able to create such a strong culture and give the reader so much insight into Kaden s life Th [...]


  15. Initial Review OH MY GOSH THIS WAS PERFECT The betrayal runs deep Five Well Deserved Stars from me Review to come Read the full review A Perfection Called BooksEveryone fears second book syndrome I knew the minute I opened this book that I d have nothing to fear I was wildly impressed with the artful creation of The Kiss of Deception, and it s no surprise that The Heart of Betrayal captivated my heart as well.I know many complain that The Kiss of Deception is slow I urge you, if you feel that se [...]


  16. WOOOOHA, what a ride THE HEART OF BETRAYAL S had me going on a ride of ups and downs like thisBecause that wasAnd it left me feeling like thisBut by the end of the book I wasThis book was EPIC Truly, wonderfully EPICCC I mean it was slow paced, especially in the beginning, but the first book was too But that did NOTHING but strengthen this book And that s weird because I usually HAVE to have a fast paced book for me to love it But not with this series AND YOU ARE FAIR WARNED THE ENDING IS TORTUR [...]


  17. Although I feel like the plot didn t move forward for quite a while, I REALLY enjoyed this book and felt like I was engaged with the narrative than I was with book 1 I listened to the audiobook and the cast of narrators and voice acting was superb I enjoyed being back in this world, seeing the characters for who they really are instead of all the disguises from book 1 and especially enjoyed seeing how fierce Lia is I really have no idea where the story is going after that ending, but I want


  18. 2.5 stars It should be noted that I wasn t the biggest fan of The Kiss of Deception but I found the ending so promising that I really wanted to give this series another chance.If you loved The Kiss of Deception, don t let this review make you anxious, I m pretty sure you will like this one than the first If you are like me however, and thought TKoD was very meh then this review is for you To summarize I was hoping THoB would remedy many things I disliked in TKoD but that didn t happen unfortuna [...]


  19. Buddy read with Support Team aka Cait I had high hopes going into this book since I ve read several reviews stating it s way better than the first book Was it Yes and no Am I disappointed Yes Seems like all this series does is disappoint me time and time again I highly doubt I m reading book 3 It s too big and I high key lost all interest Sad The book started off SO WELL I was enjoying it so much and I was so glad I ve checked out a lot of reviews prior to starting the book stating that this boo [...]


  20. 5 MAGNIFICENT STARS The rules of reason build towers that reach past the treetops The rules of trust build towers that reach past the stars Sweet baby Jesus I seriously don t know how I survived without these books in my life.I was going to read After You by Jojo Moyes in between these books but I think I m just gonna jump straight into the next and final book The Beauty of Darkness Sorry not sorry Review to come


  21. I think this book fell victim to a very specific problem I have now with YA fantasy books I read book 1 before I read Six of Crows, and it was pretty good I read this one after I read Six of Crows and suddenly, I ve read better and everything in this was cliche and the characters weren t that great and the dialogue was cheesy and the magic system was unrealistic and underexplained So Yeah.Maybe if I d read this closer to book one I would have enjoyed it, but reading this my eyes were roooolling [...]


  22. 3,5 SterneDer zweite Band konnte mich leider nicht mehr so sehr begeistern wie der erste was bei Trilogien leider h ufig der Fall ist Die Handlung pl tscherte die ganze Zeit ziemlich ruhig daher und es kam f r mich keine richtige Spannung auf Auch hatte ich gehofft ein paar fragen aus dem ersten Band beantwortet zu bekommen, was leider auch nicht der Fall war ich hoffe stark auf den n chsten Band Auch bin ich mir nicht sicher was ich davon halten soll, dass die Dreiecksbeziehung hier so ausgesch [...]
