The Sin Eater's Daughter
The Sin Eater's Daughter #1
Melinda Salisbury
Expected Publication: February 24, 2015
Genre: YA Fantasy
Seventeen-year-old Twylla lives in the castle. But although she’s engaged to the prince, Twylla isn’t exactly a member of the court.

She’s the executioner.

As the Goddess embodied, Twylla instantly kills anyone she touches. Each month she’s taken to the prison and forced to lay her hands on those accused of treason. No one will ever love a girl with murder in her veins. Even the prince, whose royal blood supposedly makes him immune to Twylla’s fatal touch, avoids her company.

But then a new guard arrives, a boy whose easy smile belies his deadly swordsmanship. And unlike the others, he’s able to look past Twylla’s executioner robes and see the girl, not the Goddess. Yet Twylla’s been promised to the prince, and knows what happens to people who cross the queen.

However, a treasonous secret is the least of Twylla’s problems. The queen has a plan to destroy her enemies, a plan that requires a stomach-churning, unthinkable sacrifice. Will Twylla do what it takes to protect her kingdom? Or will she abandon her duty in favor of a doomed love?
It's poison green. It's Slytherin green. The book's premise reminds me a bit of Graceling. But wait! Is that a hint of a love triangle? Noooooooooooooooo.

  1. I was trying to think of this book the other day and I couldn't---I knew I'd read about one where the MC was an executioner. LOL I am very excited about this one, too. The cover is what first caught my eye, though---gorgeous!
