Waiting on Wednesday: Dark Triumph by Robin LaFevers

****"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Jill at the Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.****

My pick for this week is:
Dark Triumph (His Fair Assassin, #2)
Dark Triumph by Robin LaFevers
Expected publication date: April 2nd, 2013
from Houghton Mifflin Books for Children

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.
Grave Mercy was definitely one of my favorite books of the year so I'm incredibly excited to get this in my hands. While I'm sad that Ismae won't be telling the story this time I have a feeling Sybella has a lot to tell. *Makes puppy eyes at anyone who has this*



  1. Yes! I cannot wait for this one! Gah! I loved the first book so much! I cannot wait for this one! Great pick :)
