It’s Tuesday! The wonderful day that books are released to the world.
Today, I’m anticipating the release of Mortal Heart by Robin LaFevers, the third book of the His Fair Assassin series, which will be released on Tuesday, Nov. 4.
Annith has watched her gifted sisters at the convent come and go, carrying out their dark dealings in the name of St. Mortain, patiently awaiting her own turn to serve Death. But her worst fears are realized when she discovers she is being groomed by the abbess as a Seeress, to be forever sequestered in the rock and stone womb of the convent. Feeling sorely betrayed, Annith decides to strike out on her own.
She has spent her whole life training to be an assassin. Just because the convent has changed its mind doesn’t mean she has.
But across Brittany, the tides of war are drawing ever nearer, with France pressuring the beleaguered duchess from all sides. Annith’s search for answers threatens to rip open an intricate web of lies and deceit that sit at the heart of the convent she serves. Yet to expose them threatens the very fabric of her existence and risks an unforeseen chance at love, one that she can no longer deny. Annith must carefully pick a path and, gods willing, effect a miracle that will see her country—and her heart—to safety.
I’m still in awe of the first two books in this series, Grave Mercy and Dark Triumph. I’m really excited to finally hear Annith’s story since she’s been locked away at the convent all this time. I’m ready for her to get her happy ever after.
