About the Author

Sarah Ahiers spent her childhood running around outside with her siblings, drawing pictures, and writing stories. Now, as a grown-up, she has an MFA in writing for children and young adults, and while she does less running around outside, the writing has held fast. Her books include Assassin's Heart and Thief 's Cunning. Sarah lives in Minnesota with three dogs and a houseful of critters. She has a collection of steampunk hats, and when she's not writing she fills her time with good games, good food, good friends, and good family. To learn more about her, visit


"Thematically, love and freedom are set in compelling opposition. The climactic battles thrill. A well-realized fantasy with strong action and romance." -- Kirkus Reviews

"[A] stunning sequel. The characters are richly developed and appealing to readers. Ahiers is certainly one to watch." -- Booklist Online

"Just as the first title was full of fantasy and adventure, this companion does not disappoint." -- School Library Journal

"An electrifying debut that captivated me from the first nail-biting chapter. Spellbinding!" -- Gennifer Albin, New York Times bestselling author (on Assassin's Heart)

"Love, death, family--and vengeance. This gripping fantasy thriller will keep you turning the pages all night long." -- Laura Ruby, author of the Printz Award-winning Bone Gap (on Assassin's Heart)

"A lavishly constructed fantasy world with an intricate society." -- Kirkus Reviews (on Assassin's Heart)

"Equal parts adventure, romance, and politics, Ahiers' first novel is astonishingly good. This is a unique twist on a love story, and the exciting Godfather-esque plotline adds layers of intrigue. Fans of Robin LaFevers' His Fair Assassins series will snatch this one up in a heartbeat." -- Booklist (starred review) (on Assassin's Heart)

"Ahiers's Romeo and Juliet-inspired world of gods, angry ghosts, and assassins is darkly lush, and Lea's voice is strong and pragmatic, making for a stylish and rich read." -- Publishers Weekly (on Assassin's Heart)
