Waiting on Wednesday (17): Dark Triumph by Robin LaFevers

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating!

Title: Dark Triumph
Author: Robin LaFevers
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Books for Children
Release Date: April 2, 2013
Vengeance is divine.

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.
Add to Goodreads
I really loved reading Grave Mercy, the previous book in the His Fair Assassin series, with the action, romance, and unbelievable twists. Though there were things in the book that were less than stellar, I thought it deserved five stars. I can't wait to read Dark Triumph, and see how Sybella's been living her life with the convent.
