Dying to Read (62)-DEATH MARKED by Leah Cypess

Hey y’all thanks for stopping by to see my Dying to Read post and of course as always I have to give credit to the lovely Jill over at Breaking the Spine for the Waiting on Wednesday Meme!

I loved DEATH SWORN and I can't wait to read the conclusion to Ileni's story!And look at that gorgeous cover!!

Release Date: March 3, 2015
Hardcover: 400 pages
Publisher: Greenwillow Books
ISBN: 978-0062221247
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.

Leah Cypess spins an intricate and beautiful conclusion to Ileni's story. In the end, it may not be the epic decisions that bring down an empire, but the small ones that pierce the heart.

So what do you think? Will you be adding this to your pile? What are you dying to read this week?


  1. Ooo, great pick, Jaime! Asma loved Death Sworn, and she's excited for this one. Happy reading!

    Stop by my WoW

  2. Awesome pick, Jaime!! I still have to read Death Sworn, but I just finally got my hands on the book the other day, and I can't wait to start it!! I love both of the covers in this series!!

    Here's my WoW:

  3. I still haven't read Death Sworn but I have heard such amazing things about it. I had no idea that the sequel is coming out so I need to hurry up. I hope you'll enjoy this one. Great pick :)

    Tanja @ Ja čitam, a ti?

  4. Hmm, not sure this is the book for me. I mean, it sounds interesting, but lately I've been in a mood for contemporary action/romance with no fantasy or sic-fi elements. Weird, I know. And I'm struggling to sate that odd hunger. Because really, military romance gets old and it's hard to find anything else that is action-packed and romance-y without a paranormal creature or two. Don't know why it matters, but it does.

    Anyways, thanks for sharing!
