Waiting on Wednesday



"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, originally started by Jill at Breaking the Spine , that highlights upcoming book releases everyone is waiting on...hence the title. This week's pick is Dark Triumph by Robin LaFevers.  Here's the synopsis:

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.
 
I really enjoyed Grave Mercy and this is the hotly anticipated sequel with an equally beautiful cover as the first book.  This sounds like it's Sybella's story although I'm hoping Ismae is still around and I can't wait to find out.
 
Dark Triumph is published on 2nd April, 2013 in the US and 6th June, 2013 in the UK.

  1. I liked Grave Mercy but I think I might like Dark Triumph even more-Sybella and Beast, am I right? (BEAST!)

    1. I think I'm probably going to have to get the US copy to go with my copy of Grave Mercy.
