Author: Robin LaFevers
Series: His Fair Assassin Trilogy #2
Genre: Teen Fantasy
Release Date: April 2, 2013
Sold from the tagline on the cover, Grave Mercy captured my attention right from the start. I thoroughly enjoyed the unique and historical edge LaFevers wrote with – she really presented a strong first novel (read full review). Although the second book focuses on a different character, I fully expect Dark Triumph to be just as good. Especially since, I find Sybella almost more fascinating than Ismae . You bet I’m picking this one up as soon as it comes out!
If you’re unfamiliar with LaFevers, here’s a short overview of the first book:
Overview: Seventeen-year-old Ismae escapes from the brutality of an arranged marriage to the respite of the convent of St. Mortain. Here she learns that the god of Death has blessed her with dangerous gifts and a violent destiny. To claim her new life, she must destroy the lives of others. But how can she deliver Death’s vengeance upon a target who has stolen her heart?
