Until, inevitably, Amastan is ordered to solve these murders, before the family gets blamed.Every life has its price, but when the tables are turned, Amastan must find this perfect assassin or be their next target."The Perfect Assassin is a thrilling fantastical mystery that had me racing through the pages." --S. A. Chakraborty, author of The City of Brass"Full of rooftop fights, frightening magic, and nonstop excitement and mystery, I absolutely loved it from start to finish!" -- Sarah Beth Durst

Assassin solving a murder. LGBT rep. Made my heart twinge just a smidge. Not broken, mind you, but my eyes might have welled up. It‘s not a romance so I can‘t expect an HEA but I still want it! What more do you need to know?

Peach sangria and a burger on the way for dinner before class, plus this e-galley I didn‘t realize was so close to its pub date when I requested it. 😬🤓

This was fantastic. It's a murder mystery set in a fantasy world, with queerness and assassins and secrets and scribes. It moved quickly, and I can't wait for the next book.

conceptDawg As far as I can tell I just need to constantly query what you're reading and read it next. This looks very interesting. Adding to my stack. 4mo
