Waiting On Wednesday: Dark Triumph (His Fair Assassin #2) by R.L. LaFevers

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine,
and specifically spotlights upcoming
novels we can’t wait to read.

Our WoW for this week is…

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 CANNOT WAIT TO FIND OUT MORE ABOUT SYBELLA!! She was such a mysterious character and those teasing glimpses we got of her in Grave Mercy were not enough for me. I’m also hoping that Beast is the imprisoned ally because a) he can’t be dead yet (FEEELS), b) he was so awesome, and c) I may or may not be shipping them already…

  2. I haven’t read the first book but I heard great things about it!

  3. Grave Mercy was freaking awesome. Can;t wait for this too… Great pick.

  5. Oh, I was hopelessly in love with the first book. Can’t wait for that sequel, it’s already pre-ordered! So excited!

  8. This was one of my favorite reads from 2012! It truly took me by surprise. LaFevers is an incredible storyteller. I don’t usually read historical fiction, I like it, but UF/PNR come first. But this was a winner for sure. Thank you for the great post ladies. Can’t wait for this either :)
