Title: Mortal Heart
Series: His Fair Assassin 3
Author: Robin LaFevers
Expected Publication: November 4, 2014
Annith has watched her gifted sisters at the convent come and go, carrying out their dark dealings in the name of St. Mortain, patiently awaiting her own turn to serve Death. But her worst fears are realized when she discovers she is being groomed by the abbess as a Seeress, to be forever sequestered in the rock and stone womb of the convent. Feeling sorely betrayed, Annith decides to strike out on her own.
She has spent her whole life training to be an assassin. Just because the convent has changed its mind doesn't mean she has.
But across Brittany, the tides of war are drawing ever nearer, with France pressuring the beleaguered duchess from all sides. Annith’s search for answers threatens to rip open an intricate web of lies and deceit that sit at the heart of the convent she serves. Yet to expose them threatens the very fabric of her existence and risks an unforeseen chance at love, one that she can no longer deny. Annith must carefully pick a path and, gods willing, effect a miracle that will see her country—and her heart—to safety.
Why I am lurking on this: I'm such a sucker for bows, so love the cover! Fits in well with the other two. I haven't read or bought Dark Triumph yet, but I re-read Grave Mercy this year, because the style and story are just so awesome. Can't wait to dive into the stories of the other two girls, but first I need to money to purchase those beauties!!
