But along with the action were some holy mother of all twists that I did not see coming for the life of me. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.

If you were in the camp of readers who thought LaFevers pulled some punches in the first book, then I urge you to give this installment a try, because it is much darker and more unique. That man is known as Beast and is known and loved throughout the region. Perfection no longer holds any appeal for me.
I don’t think you can help but feel strongly for her. She’s determined to achieve her goals for the greater good and will do whatever it takes to get the job done. Dark Triumph does not fall victim to middle book syndrome and even surpasses Grave Mercy.
And let me let you, this girl has been put through the ringer a few times in her life. Sybella is one of St. The blend of action, intrigue, history, and romance was wonderful. I could be wrong though, since I’m just guessing. I was hoping that Dark Triumph would become available in the UK as well but so far, I’ve not seen it and this was the reason for not reading this sooner.
I’m looking forward to book 3, but it’s going to be anticlimactic given how epic this book is. Her past was by far one of the most awful I’ve ever read in a book.

This is the website for my YA books about assassin nuns in medieval France. As it is, I must warn you here that the story deals dadk difficult issues, including sexual violence and incest, and several kind of abuse.
Please don’t underestimate readers. Realistic details of 15th-century Breton life abound, providing an overall clear and accurate picture of the times.
And if you thought that Grave Mercy was a little rovin slow or missing some alfevers scenes,then don’t fear, this book definitely delivers it and so much more! She’s so strong and kind and good and badass and a proper assassin. While the other men in Sybella’s life mold her into what they want, Beast accepts Sybella as she is with her assassin skills, dark past, and treachery.
In a way they save one another and become even lafevera together. Mortain since they brought her back from the brink of madness, taking her in at fourteen and training her for special assignments. The book kept moving forwardyou know? The ending was sweet, lovely, and also funny.
