Death Sworn by Leah Cypess

Ileni is chosen to be the new magic tutor to the assassins after their previous two tutors were murdered.  She knows that the Elders expect that she will also be killed since she has been losing her magical abilities.  Ileni is determined to keep her dwindling magic a secret from the assassins and sets about teaching them meaningless tasks while trying to find the killer hiding amongst them.  At first she is disgusted by the mission of the killers but the more time she spends with them the more she realizes that she doesn't know everything that is happening politically.  She is also confused by her growing feelings for her protector Sorin.  Ileni knows she is going to have to choose a side as the danger around her grows.  I enjoyed this book while reading it but it hasn't left a big impression on me that I remember many details while writing this summary.
