With all the Hype around this book I feel like I don’t need to explain this one at all, but I love it and I wish I had my own Mr. Kindly!

The Way of Shadows


Amazon* | Goodreads

I read this book a LONG time ago and I don’t remember much about it other than I absolutely loved it and devoured the whole series!  Its on my very short list of books I want to re-read (if only I didn’t have so many new books to read!)

Mortal Heart


Amazon* | Goodreads

I feel like this is the least known book on my list, but it is also my favorite! I absolutely LOVED this book! This is the third book in the series, but I chose to feature it because it was hands down my favorite (tho the rest of the series is phenomenal too!)

The Kiss of Deception


Amazon* | Goodreads | Review

The main character was not the assassin in this one, but I think it still counts as an assassin book.  I loved this book and I thought it was written in a really unique and clever way.  Unfortunately I didn’t like the next two books in the series.

Alright, I kind of ran out of assassin books to choose, and (in case you haven’t noticed) I am slightly obsessed with this book right now.  I know Eli is more of a serial killer than an assassin, but there is a fine line between the two, so I am counting it!

What are your favorite assassin books? Have you read any of these? Did you love them too? Let me know in the comments!!


  1. Nice list! I actually haven’t read any of these but am taking notes. So many great books to read, so little time. 😊

    I think Throne of Glass serious would be my pick… but I am drifting away a bit from Maas so maybe not. 😊

      1. He he, I completely understand. Not only there are many books, but also those books are also loooooong. 🙂 Fingers crossed you enjoy it if you get to read it one day. 🙂
