Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers just by posting in this blog!
Why be the sheep, when you can be the wolf?
Seventeen-year-old Ismae escapes from the brutality of an arranged
marriage into the sanctuary of the convent of St. Mortain, where the
sisters still serve the gods of old. Here she learns that the god of
Death Himself has blessed her with dangerous gifts—and a violent
destiny. If she chooses to stay at the convent, she will be trained as
an assassin and serve as a handmaiden to Death. To claim her new life,
she must destroy the lives of others.
Ismae’s most important assignment takes her straight into the high
court of Brittany—where she finds herself woefully under prepared—not
only for the deadly games of intrigue and treason, but for the
impossible choices she must make. For how can she deliver Death’s
vengeance upon a target who, against her will, has stolen her heart?
