Grave Mercy - Robin LaFevers Short and Sweet:WOW!!!!! I love and adore this book! Grave Mercy is really something special and it's sequel Dark Triumph is my immediate next read! Fantastic, gorgeous story!!!To Elaborate....Ismae has spent years being trained at the convent of St. Mortain (the saint of death) to be an instrument of death and vengeance. After a few easily completed assignments, she enters into a much more complicated one where she must pretend to be the mistress of Duval, the trusted advisor and half brother of Anne of Brittany. From her position she is expected to uncover those betraying the duchess as well as those whom Mortain has marked for death. While Ismae is originally highly suspect of Duval and seeks to uncover some kind of treachery in him, she very quickly finds herself torn between the directives of her convent and the decisions of her heart. She ultimately begins to question all she has come to believe of her origins, her convent, and her heart.This is an amazing book and I highly recommend it to those who adore historical fiction and even those who don't. This may very well be the book that makes you love this genre.(Originally published @ http://iheartyafiction.blogspot.com/)
