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

There is a website called Breaking the Spine which does a weekly feature called Waiting on Wednesday.  The blogger "Jill from Birmingham" lists a book she is waiting eagerly to see published and the description from Amazon.com.  

I thought hmmm I could do that.  The tricky part is she wants you to link to her site and join some vast hidden phalanx of other bloggers listing what they recommended.  Not quite sure how that part works.

My choice is Dark Triumph, second in the His Fair Assassin series.  I started reading R. L. Lafevers with her Nathaniel Fludd books and then picked up the Theodosia series when they came to my attention.  There is always a great deal of intelligence, arcane knowledge and heart in her stories.

Her new series is for teens and has more mature themes such as a heroine who is the daughter of the god of death and a trained assassin.  Within a nunnery in 1500's France.

Dark Triumph (His Fair Assassin Trilogy)  To be released April 2, 2013

Amazon's description:

Sybella's duty as Death's assassin in 15th-century France forces her return home to the personal hell that she had finally escaped. Love and romance, history and magic, vengeance and salvation converge in this thrilling sequel to Grave Mercy.

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. The convent views Sybella, naturally skilled in the arts of both death and seduction, 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. 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?
