I’m still not over the ending of The Power. It kind of felt like Jennifer kicked my baby Pegasus. (Cuddle support group is open). The plus side is, we get to see Alex and Aiden again!! 

Side-note: I want to build an empire of fries and rule it with Josie. Can’t wait for you all to read it in two days!

{Story Diary} Assassin's Heart by Sarah Ahiers

Feb 1, 2016

I received an advanced review copy from Epic reads in exchange for an honest review, however it does not affect my review. Quotes are taken from an unedited advanced review copy and is subject to change in the final copy.

Assassin's Heart by Sarah Ahiers
Young Adult Fantasy
February 2, 2016 from 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.

"Maybe love was less about feeling wanted and beautiful and more about feeling safe."

--Sarah Ahiers, Assassin's Heart

"You are a flame and he is a moth, drawn to you, unaware if he gets too close you will burn him up."

--Sarah Ahiers, Assassin's Heart

My joints creaked as I stood. I also needed sleep. And food and a bath. Those were the first things. Then I'd choose my next steps. Decide who to kill first, and how.

Because someone would die for what they'd done to the Saldanas. And this time I wouldn't kill just in service of Safraella. No. This time it would also be for me."

--Sarah Ahiers, Assassin's Heart
