Dark Triumph by R.L. LaFevers
Release Date: April 2, 2013
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. (summary from goodreads)
Grave Mercy was one of my favorite books of 2012 (somehow I left it off my list, oops!), and I’ve been waiting for the next in the trilogy ever since I finished it. While I’m a little disappointed that Ismae’s story isn’t continuing, I am super curious to read about Sybella, and to find out about her.
Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine.
