Loved the Assassin's Theme!
Assassin's Heart - Sarah Ahiers

***Spoilers ahead you’ve been warned***

 

The world building is really well done with different Families pitted against each other and each one wanting to rise up in the ranks to gain more influence and power. There’s elements of fantasy, as it also involves deities and Gods (each city has their own patron deity). Lea has Safraella for example, who happens to be the Goddess of her city and protects her followers from the ghosts that frequent outside during the night. I loved this concept as it kept the world interesting and played a large role in Lea’s character.

 

Speaking of Lea. I really enjoyed her as a character. She’s fiercely loyal, headstrong, and her skills are on point. She’s a survivor and once she sets her goals, she does it. Despite all she goes through, she continues to keep going. I love her devotion to Safraella. It may seem fanatical to some but it’s what kept her advancing into her plot for revenge. (Also, she wouldn’t have the drive to go find Les and Marcello)

 

Although I rather liked Lea and Val together but well he just had to go ahead and do that thing didn’t he but well, Family before family right? Les and Lea were all right. Not the ideal chemistry that I thought she had with Val, but it’s still sweet nevertheless. I can’t say I enjoyed reading the romance in the book though. It felt awkward and out of the place (do we really have time for this when revenge is priority??) and I didn’t care too much for reading about that. I preferred the plotting and surprises that were in store for Lea with the Da Vias.

 

Aside from the awkward moments of romance, the plot itself was great. It’s got good amounts of action and drama to keep the reading going, and the excellent world building really helps in this case. I especially liked the encounter with Lea and the Goddess Safraella herself. The last third part of the book closed nicely (bwahaha! Revenge was sweet!!!!)

 

I’m looking forward to the second book, I’d like to know what happens next considering what Lea chose to do.

Assassin's Heart by Sarah Ahiers
Assassin's Heart - Sarah Ahiers

This book was entertaining and a great idea.  I loved the main character and the character development of her and the other characters.  I couldn't put this book down.  I really liked it.  It had been a while since I read a book involving assassins.  The concept of assassins in this world is so interesting and I loved it.

hey there, Ms. Ahiers--well alright! pretty darn impressive so far. Lea is a tough cookie...and as of page 52, it looks like she's gonna have to be!
