With shades of Game of Thrones and Romeo and Juliet, this richly imagined fantasy from debut author Sarah Ahiers is a tale of love, lies, and vengeance. Fans of Kristin Cashore and Rae Carson will devour the flawlessly crafted action and inventive world building.
Seventeen-year-old Lea Saldana is a trained assassin. She was born into one of the nine clipper Families in the kingdom of Lovero who lawfully take lives for a price. As a member of the highest-ranking clan, loyalty to Family is valued above all, but that doesn't stop Lea from getting into a secret relationship with Val Da Via, a boy from a rival clan. Despite her better judgment, Lea has fallen in love with him; but she's confident she can anticipate any threat a mile away.
Then she awakens one night to a house full of smoke. Although she narrowly escapes, she isn't able to save her Family as their home is consumed by flames. With horror, she realizes that Val and his Family are the only ones who could be responsible. Devastated over his betrayal and the loss of her clan, there's just one thing on her mind: making the Da Vias pay. The heart of this assassin craves revenge.Ver Descripción del producto

This book had so many awesome points. The magic laced within the pages really brought the fantasy feel I crave. There was no choice but to leave reality behind when reading... It brought unique characters with unique stories. I was held captive by the twists and turns and couldn't wait to see how it all played out. The romance was unconventional and for that I am thankful. Talk about a swoon worthy couple. Les and Lea were the best book couple ever! There was kindness in him and fierceness in her. Together they protected one another with their lives. It was very romeo and juilet and I loved it.
Overall, I can't say enough wonderful things... I enjoyed the book and how it was different from all the other fantasies I've read. I can't wait to read more by this Author.
Cross the best parts of Steven Brust and Mercedes Lackey, and you have what Sarah Ahiers has written in Assassin's Heart. From beginning to end, there is nothing slow, plodding, or unnecessary in this story. The villains have reasons and humanity, the heroes have their all-too-human weaknesses and flaws, and there is no way the reader can avoid caring about them as they struggle against the odds stacked higher and higher against them. Ahiers has created an analogue fantasy world that lives and breathes its own consistent beliefs and social structures, and there is just a touch of magic and real wonder the give it a very special spark. Add Assassin's Heart to your fantasy (and/or young adult) "must read" list!
Lea Saldana is a clipper, a trained assassin, from a powerful family. When her family is killed by a rival and her heart is betrayed, she decides she must take revenge. This book is so many things. There's the intricate world-building of families and ghosts and religion. There's the wonderful description - the foods and the towns and the surroundings. There's adventure (!!) and a sweet romance. There's a horse named Butters. Butters! Oh man, I really loved Butters.
But at the heart of the story is Lea, a fierce, loyal young woman driven by revenge. She was awesome!
I'm a huge fan of Robin LaFevers' His Fair Assassin trilogy. I think Sarah Ahiers' book is perfect for fellow fans! If you like adventure, romance and lushly built worlds, this book is for you!
