This week I am waiting on
Assassin’s Heart by Sarah Ahiers
Publication Date: February 2nd 2016
In the kingdom of Lovero, nine rival Families of assassins lawfully kill people for a price. As a highly skilled member of one of these powerful clans, seventeen-year-old Lea Saldana has always trusted in the strength of her Family. Until she awakens to find them murdered and her home in flames. The Da Vias, the Saldanas’ biggest enemy, must be responsible—and Lea should have seen it coming. But her secret relationship with the Da Vias’ son, Val, has clouded her otherwise killer instinct—and given the Da Vias more reason than ever to take her Family down.
Racked with guilt and shattered over Val’s probable betrayal, Lea sets out to even the score, with her heart set on retaliation and only one thought clear in her mind: make the Da Vias pay.
Assassin’s are a popular choice of profession for our characters these days haha. I’m not complaining about that, I love the concept because it brings about some interesting moral dilemmas. Factor in a Romeo and Juliet like forbidden romance between members rival assassin families and you have a whole new set of dilemmas. From the question of trust, to feelings of love, betrayal, vengeance and everything in between; this book has the potential to become my latest addiction.
What’s your most anticipated book?
