You had me at assassin.
Assassins are the chocolate of book plots—always an improvement. If you savor stories with protagonists on the murky side of the law, YA fantasy offers a wide menu of morality-blurring characters from authors like Robin LaFevers, Sarah J. Maas, and Kristin Cashore. Looking for a new read to satisfy that craving? Then delve into Swati Teerdhala’s The Tiger at Midnight, which features a female assassin hellbent on vengeance, along with hearty servings of conflict and romance.
Teerdhala has infused her fictional world with Hindu mythology and elements of Indian history. Scheduled to be the first book in a trilogy, The Tiger at Midnight pitches Kunal, a loyal soldier to the king, against Esha, a secret assassin for the rebels. But what happens when romance and duty collide?
