Title: Death Marked
   Author: Leah Cypess
   Format: Hardcover
   Release Date: March 3rd, 2015

     A young sorceress’s entire life has been shaped to destroy the empire controlling her world. But if everything she knows is a lie, will she even want to fulfill her destiny? The sequel to Death Sworn is just as full of magic and surprising revelations, and will thrill fans of Leigh Bardugo and Robin LaFevers.

     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.

My Stance:

     Death Marked, sequel to Death Sworn, boasts a great author to its name, Leigh Bardugo. I have been a fan of Bardugo's for a while and frankly anything holding her name is noteworthy. What I don't understand though, is how Death Sworn and Death Masks are interrelated. Maybe I am missing it, or something. However, either way, this book sounds great. I mean Ileni just looks like this young sorceress that was exiled and is now seeking the truth. Who doesn't want the truth, but as the synopsis states, what is the cost of knowing the truth?

     I haven't read the first book, but at the same time, I am looking forward to getting into the whole bit. I am busy with a lot of books at the moment, but I plan on getting around to it this year. Death Marked sounds fantastic and the names it's being set next to are fantastic. I hope the book holds up to what it's being hyped.
