ARC REVIEW + COMMENT GIVEAWAY: Assassin's Heart by Sarah Ahiers

21421609In 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.

*My Review*
I was really surprised by this book! In a super awesome kind of way. I love revenge and assassins, but when I got into the story and realized that there was SOO much more to it. I was expecting more historical fiction, and got historical fantasy! This was such a great read and I was shocked by some of the plot twists that I honestly NEVER saw coming! Also, the growth of the main character Lea from the beginning to the end of the book was wonderful to see. This is another author that will go on my must-buy list!! If you enjoy fierce heroines who can kick serous ass with weapons, awesome world and character building, and some crazy surprise plot twists...pre-order Assassin's Heart now!
