A startling, seductive, deliciously dark debut that will shatter your definition of YA fantasy. 16-year-old Twylla lives in the castle. But although she’s engaged to the prince, no one speaks to her. No one even looks at her. Because Twylla isn’t a member of the court. She’s the executioner. As the goddess-embodied, Twylla kills with a single touch. So each week, she’s taken to the prison and forced to lay her hands on those accused of treason. No one will ever love her. Who could care for a girl with murder in her veins? Even the prince, whose royal blood supposedly makes him immune to her touch, avoids her. But then a new guard arrives, a boy whose playful smile belies his deadly swordsmanship. And unlike the others, he’s able to look past Twylla’s executioner robes and see the girl, not the goddess. Yet a treasonous romance is the least of Twylla’s problems. The queen has a plan to destroy her enemies — a plan that requires an unthinkable sacrifice. Will Twylla do what it takes to protect her kingdom? Or will she abandon her duty in favor of a doomed love?

3.0 The Sin Eater's Daughter
Rating of three stars because I was totally entertained by this. Not sure if I'll read the next one, though if the pacing and plot is as bananapants as this one, it may well be worth it. Plus the narrator was acting her little heart out. Bless her cotton socks.Honestly this book was like YA Trope vo...

3.0 Fantasy novel with original ideas
I'm not sure if this is aimed at the female YA readership or to the general fantasy-loving public but I found this tale interesting. It deals with a young girl, Twylla, living in court whose touch can kill and who is used as executioner. As the tile tells us, she is the daughter of a Sin-Eater whose...

2.0 The Sin Eater's Daughter by Melinda Salisbury
I picked this for my Young Adult horror square for the Booklikes Halloween Bingo. Young adult typically aggravates me but the blurb of this one sounded like it had potential. It promised, “A startling, seductive, deliciously dark debut that will shatter your definition of YA fantasy” and it was...
