Title: Dark Triumph
Series: His Fair Assassin 2
Author: Robin LaFevers
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Books for Children
Expected Publication: April 2, 2013
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?
Why I am looking forward to this: Loved Grave Mercy! Sybella has already been mentioned, and I'm curious about her story. Plus, I wonder if Ismae and Gavriel will get a second appearance, as supporting characters this time. It'd be nice to meet with them again.
