    By Jordyn Etling, Sports Editor

    “Assassin’s Heart” by Sarah Ahiers was a very pleasant surprise since I found this book in my local library during one of their annual sales and bought it on a whim. We follow 17-year-old Lea Saldana, who has been trained her whole life as an assassin and worships the God of murder. Her professional title is a Clipper, which are lawfully sponsored murderers.

    I close my eyes and breathe deeply. The lavender, the grass, the lilies, everything. The wind blows gently across it making it dance, Rippling the tall grass as it goes and blowing my hair along with it. It is peaceful here. My meadow. Quiet. Magical. As if a unicorn were to step out from between the trees, Or a fairy were to fly right past me. I close my eyes and listen. I hear everything. The water in a nearby stream along with birds singing s...
