Grave Mercy (His Fair Assassin #1)
By Robin LaFevers
Date Available: April 3, 2012
Why be the sheep, when you can be the wolf?
Seventeen-year-old Ismae escapes from the brutality of an arranged marriage into the sanctuary of the convent of St. Mortain, where the sisters still serve the gods of old. Here she learns that the god of Death Himself has blessed her with dangerous gifts—and a violent destiny. If she chooses to stay at the convent, she will be trained as an assassin and serve as a handmaiden to Death. To claim her new life, she must destroy the lives of others.
Ismae's most important assignment takes her straight into the high court of Brittany—where she finds herself woefully under prepared—not only for the deadly games of intrigue and treason, but for the impossible choices she must make. For how can she deliver Death’s vengeance upon a target who, against her will, has stolen her heart?
Reason I'm coveting it:
Two words: Female assassin....How freakin cool is that?!?!?!?!
Another two words: Forbidden romance....*SWOON*!
Between court intrigue, assassins, romance, and crossbows how can I not want to read this?! Besides I've heard good things about it from those who got ARCs and they loved it! Not to mention the cover is pretty BA! Just check out Small's Cover Review which definitely made me love it even more!
So what are y'all currently drooling on this fine Wednesday? Happy beginning of February everyone!
