Book Review: The Sin Eater’s Daughter by Melinda Salisbury
Twylla learns at a young age that instead of becoming a Sin Eater like her mother, she is goddess-embodied, and thus goes to live with the queen to become her executioner. Although she is engaged to the prince, she feels trapped. When her normal guard becomes ill, Twylla finds herself falling for her new guard because he doesn’t seem to be as afraid of her as everyone else around her.
This story is pretty action packed and has a definite cliff hanger ending. Personally, I felt like the relationship progressed too quickly (straight to sex) but I thought the storyline was interesting and am planning on reading the next book. I was surprised at how well we got to know the main characters in such a short period of time.
Quotes: None but only because I was on a road trip and I couldn’t safely bookmark.
Recommended Grades: 9th and up (some language and sex)
