❐ Overall Rating 4½⭐ | Narration 😀 = Good(ish)
This series has been billed as having assassin nuns...but nuns is not the right term for these girls...handmaidens is much more befitting. Death‘s handmaidens is even more accurate. A kickass medieval story with strong women who actually support other women with a side of romance. ⬇ ⬇

AUDIOBOOKINGWITHLEAH Poisonings, political intrigue, and broken betrothals are just some of what you‘ll get with this story...set in Brittany before it was conquered by France...or something like that. 2y

4/5 for this one. This was such great YA fantasy historical fiction. There was so much going on with assassins from a convent and some espionage and a little romance! Ismae is a kick butt character and I loved her! I can‘t wait to read the next book.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I decided to re-read this one on a whim, and I must say that I enjoyed it even more this time. I have only read “Grave Mercy” one other time, but the fast pace of the plot and the well-rounded characters had me finishing this thick book in a matter of days. I can‘t wait to continue this series and explore its world and characters.

I immediately picked this up because of the gorgeous cover. I loved the concept of historical fiction meets fantasy in 15th century Brittany. I definitely enjoyed the book, but I really felt it could have been taken to the next level and been more epic like the Nevernight series which is in a similar vein.

#20Series20Days - #Top20Series - Day 6 (a little behind)

I absolutely loved this trilogy! I loved the first 2 more than the 3rd one but it could have been a timing thing. This is a YA series, but doesn‘t really feel like one.

They are the daughters of death and trained as assassins in a convent. Set in the 15th century Brittany. They go to court and do Mortain‘s bidding. The first 2 books are sooo good!

Lesanne I loved this one too! 2y
Jas16 I really preferred the first two as well. 2y

It is almost 8pm and I‘m only now sitting down to read for an extended period of time. I had a busy day! I went shopping for summer clothes (only visited one store though, since the wait to get in other stores was far too long due to COVID capacity restrictions), made Father‘s Day cards for my husband, and baked cupcakes with my daughter 🧁

Now I must read! I‘m really enjoying this novel and can‘t wait to dive back in 📚

I really liked this! A fast, fun historical fiction with court intrigue, a little romance, a touch of magic, and NUN ASSASSINS. Solid writing, an interesting story, appealing characters, and good narration.

Thanks to the always fabulous reviews of @Ashley_Nicoletto for putting this series on my radar.

Book 1 of #24in48 was finished over breakfast bowls and coffee this morning. 😍

I picked this one up off a fellow Littens recommendation that I read this series before Courting Darkness. It does not disappoint. Assassins. Dukedoms. Duchesses. Poison. The daughter of death. I plan to continue on with this series.

4/5 stars!

Beautifully rich and wonderful! The romance was gradual and was not the main driving force of the story, which I really appreciate. The Middle Ages is not typically written about in YA literature, so it was so interesting to see it come to life! There were a few slow parts, but I am so happy I finally decided to pick this one off of my TBR pile!

Two words.

Killer nuns.

I mean, have you ever even thought of it?? Really?? Cuz I was caught off guard and I loved it. I found myself connecting with the characters and with all the treacherous behind the scenes action, you never really know who to trust and who to love or hate. I cannot wait to start the next book!

2. No, only if people are coming over. Or when I have to do laundry, because I fold it on top of the bed.
3. It‘s supposed to be 44°F, but Idk if it will get that high because we are going to get a wintry mix
4. I don‘t have one. My food eating is pretty standard. My husband puts peanut butter on burgers.

Starting a reread of this series so I can read Courting Darkness when it releases! Audiobook this time though

ApplesandSpindles I met her at a library conference years ago. She was on a YA panel. All the other authors wrote straight to laptop, but she actually hand writes the whole book first and then edits as she types it out! I was impressed. 4y

Assassin. Nuns.
To elaborate:
These are nuns. In a convent. Training in hand to hand combat, weaponry and poisons. To kill people. In the name of Death.
This is very YA-historical-fantasy-romanceish. Has moments where it drags and some dialogue is fairly dry, but I liked it. It was an entertaining read.
Besides.....Assassin Nuns! I'll probably continue the series, but not in a hurry.

An assassin trained in a convent dedicated to the god of death… what‘s not to like? I like the figurative chess match between characters. The romantic storyline is a bit predictable. Overall, it‘s not the best book ever but it is an OK read. Better than so-so though. (His Fair Assassin Book 1).
