Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine every Wednesday. It’s about spotlighting some of the releases we are awaiting eagerly.

This week I’m waiting patiently eagerly for…

Title: Assassin’s Heart
Author: Sarah Ahiers
Series: Standalone?
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, Romance
Published By: HarperTeen
Coming out on 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.

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.
(Goodreads)

I’m not gonna lie…the cover got me. I am totally in love with this cover and it was the original reasoning as to why it was put on my TBR list. However, after reading the synopsis, I am very intrigued by this mashup of Romeo & Juliet and The Godfather.

Let’s talk about it.
