Waiting on Wednesday: Grave Mercy

On another edition of Breaking the Spine’s awesome meme, we’re talking about assassin nuns! (Now there’s a sentence I never thought I’d type.)

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?

It seems historical fiction is getting a reboot from the paranormal side of things, and I love everything about this premise! Is April really four more months away?

You can also check out Grave Mercy on Goodreads and pre-order it on the Book Depository. Grave Mercy will be released on April 3, 2012.

  1. Great pick Angel. I love the sound of this one (I think I actually picked this one too a little while ago). The historical fiction and paranormal mixed together really brought this to my attention. Awesome pick, I can’t wait either. April will be here before we know it 🙂
