It's still been slow reading for me, I'm not sure why. This past week I only read one book and that was MORTAL HEART by Robin LeFevers.
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...
It took me a bit to get into this book. I've loved her other His Fair Assassin books, but this one started out a bit slow to me, probably because most of the beginning took place in the convent. But once it got going, I was in it. LaFevers always does an excellent mix of love and intrigue. Annith was a much different character than both Ismae and Sybella, a lot less tortured, but no less interesting. Definitely a great book, although not my favorite of the three.
