Two sisters' reviews of Young Adult and Middle Grade books, inspired by their lovely library.
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating. I created the image above from a photo I took, and any other blog may use it if they link back to Gwen & Kate’s Library!
Mortal Heart by Robin LaFevers
Series: His Fair Assassin Trilogy, Book 3
Genres: Young Adult, Historical Fiction, Fantasy, Romance
Description: 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.
Gwen’s Comment: On the same day that Wild Rover No More by L.A. Meyer comes out (Waiting on Wednesday #1), readers are also treated with Mortal Heart, the third and final book in the His Fair Assassin series, which begins with one of my favorite books, Grave Mercy. I can’t wait!
Publication Date: November 4th, 2014
