Goodreads Summary

I Needed to Win.
They Needed to Die.

Sallot Leon is a thief, and a good one at that. But gender fluid Sal wants nothing more than to escape the drudgery of life as a highway robber and get closer to the upper-class—and the nobles who destroyed their home. 

When Sal steals a flyer for an audition to become a member of The Left Hand—the Queen’s personal assassins, named after the rings she wears—Sal jumps at the chance to infiltrate the court and get revenge. 

But the audition is a fight to the death filled with clever circus acrobats, lethal apothecaries, and vicious ex-soldiers. A childhood as a common criminal hardly prepared Sal for the trials. And as Sal succeeds in the competition, and wins the heart of Elise, an intriguing scribe at court, they start to dream of a new life and a different future, but one that Sal can have only if they survive.

Why I’m Waiting

I’ve seen this book popping up every so often on social media, so thought it best to check it out, and am I glad I did. It sounds absolutely amazing, such an exciting storyline – something that I am totally into and above all, we have a gender fluid protagonist which is fantastic! It really makes me happy when we see diverse characters such as Sal in YA novels, as it shows diversity in the genre and it allows other people to relate to characters that aren’t athletically perfect, straight characters. I’m so pumped for this and I sincerely hope they represent the character correctly and does the blurb justice, because I am all for it!

What books are you currently waiting for?

Thanks again,
Zoe

  1. I’m always waiting for way too many books that I’ll never be able to buy all.. It’s a struggle, really. Mask of Shadows is on that list as well!
    [Instead of one book for WoW, I always do a list of books that are coming out the following week and it’s bad because I’d have to buy at least three books a week if I want to buy every single one of them, haha.]

    1. I don’t think we’ll ever not want new books as there are always new and exciting books coming out all the time. Honestly my TBR is bigger than my read pile – it’s beyond a joke. Will we ever stop buying them though? Of course we won’t haha

      1. Nope! Definitely not!
        I have bought way too many books this month, noticed I had some extra money to spend [Like, somehow I didn’t spend it all on books yet?!] and decided to go to the bookstore on my own tomorrow. So, hello even more books that I don’t even have time to read immediately? :’)
