Waiting on Wednesday (45)

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday. Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine and showcases books we can't wait to read!

This week's pick is:
Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers
March 7, 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?

This one sounds unbelievably cool. I have a weakness for historicals with supernatural or fantasy elements. And this sounds just perfect for that. I'm liking the target who has stolen her heart! It's a 2012 debut, I believe, which makes it even more awesome. Plus that's one defiant looking girl on the cover!
