Imprisoned because her touch can kill, Juliette lives  life never knowing the touch another human being again.  She was imprisoned because the last time she touched someone, they died.  The world around her is falling apart so they have little time to mess with her or the other inmates in the horrible prison.  One day a face from her past is suddenly in her cell.  Juliette was in love with him as a child.  He was the only one that was ever nice to her.  Why is he here?  What did he do to get thrown into this hellish place?  He is really there to test her.  The Reestablishment, the new government, wants to use her as a weapon, and they are using her friend from the past to convince her to work for them.  She has little choice, to be a weapon or fight for her freedom.

Book of Day 3-20-17
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas 978-0-329-98173-0

Celaena is a prisoner in a camp that no one survives more than a couple of months in.  She has been there for over a year.  She was the best assassin in the guild before she was caught.  The crown prince of the kingdom that has imprisoned her, and slaughtered her family as a child, comes to the camp to offer her a chance at her freedom.  She can fight to become the King's Champion or rot in the camp.  She chooses to fight.  She must compete in a competition with other assassins to become the the hand of the king and kill at his bidding.  But dark and evil things are happening at the Glass Castle.  Celaena faces her competition and a murderer that keeps ripping them apart.  In a kingdom where magic is illegal, some magic is still getting through.  Old, dark magic. Can she win the competition and save her own life?  Does she dare to love the prince that sprang her from her prison? Can she trust the captain of the guard that doubts her every move?
