Goodreads Description

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.

Why I'm Waiting

I have been interested in reading more assassin books lately so I was really excited to find out about this book. Most of the time when there's a story about an assassin, the person is usually alone. No family, friends, etc. I like that this story centers around an assassin who once had a family and I'm hoping that we get to see Val with her Family and how that companionship affects her relationships and the way she interacts with others. I'm interested to see how that might be different from someone who never had anyone anyone else. I'm really looking forward to this!

Anyone else looking forward to this release?
