Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Pen to Paper where we post about one book that has been hanging out on our wish list (either for a long time, or not so long)
When I started to look and upcoming book releases, I came to the realization that I don’t have all that many books sitting on my new release can’t wait to read shelf. Mostly due to the lack of time to sit and browse the upcoming release websites, but also because in general, very few of the authors that I follow on facebook (or other forms of social media) have posted about upcoming new releases that have piqued my interest. But I made sure to carve out a few minutes last night, post cycling workout, pre-dinner and bed (yeah, I was eating dinner right before I went to bed), to see if there was anything that caught my eye. Thanks to FictionDB and their new release database, I found the following that caught my eye
Assassin’s Heart – Sarah Ahiers
Release Date: February 2, 2016
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.
Why I Can’t Wait?
I’ll admit that I have a thing for novels with assassin’s as the main characters ever since I read Robin LaFever’s series with assassin nuns. Added to that, the whole secret love (or so it sounds from the description), possible revenge theme as described sounds intriguing and I’ll be interested to see how the author approaches it. I know i’m already checking my library to see if that have it on order (and if they don’t, well then, i’ll (hopefully) sweet talk my favorite librarian into getting it for them).
What about you – what book(s) are you eagerly anticipating?
