Lea Saldana is an assassin for the top family in Lovero, a city with nine families that are all paid to kill people. When her family is killed by the Da Via family, the second family, Lea is devasted. Determined to exact revenge on her loved ones, she flees to a neighboring country where her cast out uncle is said to live. Wonderful world building, and a gripping story, but most of all a badass heroine!
