Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine talking about upcoming book releases we are excited for.
My choice this week is:
Assassin’s Heart by Sarah Ahiers
Release Date: 2nd February 2016 by HarperTeen
“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.
With shades of The Godfather and Romeo and Juliet, this richly imagined fantasy from debut author Sarah Ahiers is a story of love, lies, and the ultimate vengeance.”
I’m very interested to see how society functions in this book with there being assassin families that are lawfully allowed to kill people. I want to learn more about Lea and the events leading up to her families assassination, i’m already going to guess that it isn’t quite as straightforward as it seems. I just really want to learn more about this world and the people that live in it 🙂
What are your picks for this week?
