Review: Death Marked by Leah Cypess +GIVEAWAY

Monday, March 23, 2015
Why I chose this book:
I finished Death Sworn about a couple of months ago, and knew that I had to get Death Marked ASAP, so I requested an eARC. Luckily, the publisher was kind enough to grant me access, and I devoured the book in a single sitting. I received this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of he book or the content of my review.

Format: eARC
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy

Synopsis:
At seventeen, Ileni lost her magical power and was exiled to the hidden caves of the assassins. She never thought she would survive long. But she discovered she was always meant to end up, powerless, in the caves as part of an elder sorcerer's plan to destroy the evil Empire they'd battled so long. Except that Ileni is not an assassin, and she doesn't want to be a weapon. And, after everything, she's not even sure she knows the truth. Now, at the very heart of the Empire--its academy for sorcerers--the truth is what she seeks. What she finds challenges every belief she holds dear--and it threatens her fledgling romance with the young master of assassins. (Goodreads)

Why I chose this book:
Death Sworn has been in my TBR pile for a long time, so when I saw Death Marked was available as an automatic download on Edelweiss, I knew I needed to read both of them ASAP, and now that I've finished this book I can't believe I've waited this long to read this series.


Death Sworn by Leah Cypess
Publisher: Greenwillow
Publish Date: March 4th, 2014
Format: Hardback
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy
B&N  ||  Amazon  ||  Book Depository

Synopsis:
When Ileni lost her magic, she lost everything: her place in society, her purpose in life, and the man she had expected to spend her life with. So when the Elders sent her to be a magic tutor to a secret sect of assassins, she went willingly, even though the last two tutors had died under mysterious circumstances.

But beneath the assassins' caves, Ileni will discover a new place and a new purpose... and a new and dangerous love. She will struggle to keep her lost magic a secret while teaching it to her deadly students, and to find out what happened to the two tutors who preceded her. But what she discovers will change not only her future, but the future of her people, the assassins... and possibly the entire world. (Goodreads)
