Waiting on Wednesday #58: ‘Dark Triumph’ by R.L. LaFevers


“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, Hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.


Dark Triumph

His Fair Assassin #2

R.L. LaFevers

Publication Date:
April 2nd, 2013

Houghton Mifflin Books for Children

Hardcover, 385 pages

When Sybella arrived at the doorstep of St Mortain half mad with grief and despair the convent were only too happy to offer her refuge – but at a price. The sisters of this convent serve Death, and with Sybella naturally skilled in both the arts of death and seduction, she could become one of their most dangerous weapons.

But her assassin’s skills are little comfort when the convent returns her to the life that nearly drove her mad. Her father’s rage and brutality are terrifying, and her brother’s love is equally monstrous. But when Sybella discovers an unexpected ally she discovers that a daughter of Death may find something other than vengeance to live for…

    I really, really adored Ismae and Grave Mercy, so I can’t wait to see what Sybil would bring in Dark Triumph! As well, I wonder what Mortal Heart would be about . . .
