A few weeks ago, I posted about how amazing Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers is. I am now about halfway through Dark Triumph, the second book in her His Fair Assassin series, and I am so thrilled that the second book is just as good as the first!!! Dark Triumph is also concerned with d’Albret’s malicious plotting against the young Dutchess of Britony. Instead of Ismae’s perspective however, we are now getting the story from her Sister in Death, Sybella. Sybella, who was half crazy and suicidal when first sent to the convent of Saint Mortain to train as an assassin, has now been sent to shadow d’Albret and foil any plans of his to assassinate the Dutchess or aid France in overthrowing her kingdom.
But as we soon learn, Sybella’s fragile emotional state was the result of her mental and physical as a daughter of d’Albret. Will this mission prove to be too difficult, causing one of Death’s handmaidens to take her own life instead of the life of her target? I can’t wait to find out!!
Coming soon will be Mortal Heart, from the point of view of Annith, stuck like a prisoner in the convent awaiting her role as next Seer. What an awesome, addicting new series!!!!
