2014 год. Random House Books for Young Readers I am too young to be a part of so many lies. . . . Maeve wishes she were born a boy. Headstrong and fearless, she would be the heir her father, the High King, deserves. Instead she is the youngest of five daughters and will eventually be shipped off into fosterage and then used as a pawn to make her father's kingdom stronger with her marriage. Frustrated, she turns to trickery and bad behavior until no family will foster her and no well-bred son will marry her. But is that what she really wants? How did she find herself wrapped up in so many lies? It's time for Maeve to tell her story . . . the true story. Esther Friesner's remarkable gift for combining exciting myth and richly researched history beckons readers into the fascinating world of first-century Ireland. Hand Deception's Princess to fans of Tamora Pierce, Shannon Hale, and Malinda Lo.
