My 56 for this week is from

Assassin’s Heart

by Sarah Ahiers



Genre: Fantasy

My 56 from the hard cover.

Last night Val had dangled the key before me. And then hours later my Family was dead.

I wrapped my arms around my stomach, trying to calm my twisting gut. Answers could come later. I lived.


Read on if you want to know more.


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.



I won this book some time ago and it’s finally at the top of my TBR reading list. Hope it’s as good as it sounds!

  1. That’s spooky …. I was JUST looking at this on Amazon a couple of hours and was hoping that someone I knew had read it already (or would be soon) before me!

  9. Ohhh….to sad and intense for me. 😉 I’d love for you to visit me…

    Thanks for dropping by Exurbanis.

    I know how she feels. If you want to see me go zero-to-you-know-what in no time flat? Mess with my family. See where /that/ gets you.

    It’s good Lea has had some training growing up, or this book would probably have a very different ending. And be considerably shorter. 😉

  12. An important moment in this book. I read it a few weeks ago and I have mixed feelings about it at the moment.

  13. LadyD Piano says:

    Sounds great! Being Greek, family is important to me. Hopefully, the story ends with peace, love and restoration!

  14. I was mentally preparing myself for some blood and gore on the cover. So whew. That 56 is quite the snippet. Dang! I’d keep reading!

  15. I’ve seen this around, but I haven’t gotten to it yet! Great post. I hope you enjoy it and thanks for visiting my blog. :)

  16. I like the sound of this one – some day I’ll get to it! 😀
