Super brilliant novelI loved the Assassin's world and how it is organised I really enjoyed the use of Ghosts in this novel For some reason I got a very 'Return of the king' vibe from the use of Ghosts which FYI is a super good thing I can't wait to see what happens in the next novel This book was VERY fast paced made me cry and scream and on the hole i really enjoyedMinor issue The introduction to the mythology in the novel felt slightly rushed I don't think this is a fault of the author the editor But once you finish the novel is some what makes sense enough to answer all my uestions but some SAYING THAT the fact Sarah has this mythology and 'God' system is very uniue VIBESROMELORD OF THE RINGSTHRONE OF GLASS ASSASSIN BASSASSSSSSSSROMEO JULIETGHOST WHISPER Cant wait for book two free download · eBook or Kindle ePUB ¶ Sarah Ahiers

Reviewed by Rabid ReadsIn a county that worships a death goddess nine families of assassins are her chosen disciples Each family executes HA their religious duty legal assassination from their individual territory all except the Saldana and Da Via families whose territory is sharedUnsurprisingly these two families are also the top ranked each of their blades kept sharp by the others' and also unsurprisingly while none of the families would ever consider one of the others an ally the Saldanas and Da Vias share a particular rivalryThat rivalry comes to a head when the Da Vias attack the Saldana home setting it on fire and killing its residents in their beds But one Saldana got away one girl the youngest of her generation's active members and Lea Saldana will not rest until the Da Vias pay for their treachery in bloodFrom there it gets complicatedIn a good intricate plot way not a convoluted wayLea can be a bit much occasionally like surgeons arrogance is a reuired trait of assassins but she grows on you as she herself grows into her characterI also had some trouble in the middle of the book There's a lot of angst Or maybe it's a little bit of angst compounded by the redundancy of the three pillars of The World According to Lea1 It's all my fault2 Trust can only end in betrayal3 Keep your eye on the prize the prize being DEATH for ALL Da ViasBUT Eventually she calms down and things get interesting again And it really is interesting Lea's world's pantheon is full of gods who are REAL Not just effigies waved around to make the peasants keep toiling away in hopes of a better afterlife The gods' priests have real power and the gods themselves reach out directly to their favored followers It's really coolAnd as long as you don't let yourself get too philosophical about the realities of having legal assassination jealous lovers greedy business men etc having a green light to take a hit out on the competition that's a pretty cool concept tooBONUS no cliffhanger In fact the ending was so the exact opposite of a cliffhanger that I have no idea where we're headed next But I will find out ASSASSIN'S HEART by Sarah Ahiers is the most promising first installment of a YA fantasy series I've read recently and I highly recommend it to any fan of the genre especially those of you who like me love assassins
