Waiting on Wednesday: Dark Triumph by R. L. LaFevers (His Fair Assassin #2)


Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine in which we have the opportunity to let others know about books that we are eagerly waiting for.

Title: Dark Triumph by Robin LaFevers
Published by: Houghton Mifflin Books for Children
Release date: April 2nd, 2013

Sybella arrives at the convent’s doorstep half mad with grief and despair. Those that serve Death are only too happy to offer her refuge—but at a price. Naturally skilled in both the arts of death and seduction, the convent views Sybella as one of their most dangerous weapons.

But those assassin’s skills are little comfort when the convent returns her to a life that nearly drove her mad. Her father’s rage and brutality are terrifying, and her brother’s love is equally monstrous. And while Sybella is a weapon of justice wrought by the god of Death himself, He must give her a reason to live. When she discovers an unexpected ally imprisoned in the dungeons, will a daughter of Death find something other than vengeance to live for?

This heart-pounding sequel to Grave Mercy serves betrayal, treachery, and danger in equal measure, bringing readers back to fifteenth century Brittany and will keep them on the edge of their seats.

Why I want to read it:  Grave Mercy was a really good book.  I am curious to know why Sybella is kind of crazy and unstable and what the convent sent her to do.  Also, I hope we might see Ismae and Duval too :)

What are you waiting for this week?

    The cover of Grave Mercy was so beautiful and this one looks kind of cartoony...
