If she chooses to stay at the convent, she will be trained as an assassin and serve as a handmaiden to Death. To claim her new life, she must destroy the lives of others. Ismaes most important assignment takes her straight into the high court of Brittanywhere she finds herself woefully under preparednot only for the deadly games of intrigue and treason, but for the impossible choices she must make.

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!

1. I feel like I recommend this book a lot! I loved it!
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

So I'm five days out of major sinus surgery. I finally have some eye stamina and am hoping to read a little today. I have been going crazy. Mostly being bored with tv and listening to podcasts. Never should have started this book the night before surgery! All I've wanted to do is get back to it!

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).

I liked that Ismae started thinking for herself rather than blindly following orders. Really liked how she met father, Death, on the battlefield and learned a new way to serve him. Not bad, and I can see checking out the next book.

Nothing happens in this. At all. I quit at 85% and that was only because I was waiting for other books to come in from Overdrive. I can‘t even be generous in my review because this story was complete and total shit. The characters and plot were so underdeveloped that I actually felt embarrassed for LaFevers because someone actually told her this was good. It‘s not. It‘s trash. Stop publishing shitting young adult.

4. Right now, probably the new Ruth Ware. Or Escaping from Houdini.

I was a little hesitant at first to start reading this, until I remembered why I put it on my TBR, Nun Assassins!

OMG was this book amazing!!! I quickly tore through it and it‘s over 500 pages long!! I‘m surprised I forced myself to go to be d last night instead of staying awake to read it!

Also, using this for #LRC - Endorsed by Liberty Hardy, as I definitely heard her talking about it on All The Books!

Ismae would rock a #shortskirtlongjacket had her story taken place today. Instead, it‘s an alternate 15th century, and she‘s Death‘s handmaiden. The fantasy I do read tends to be YA, and this is the first in a trilogy that came out a few years ago. One of my favorites; I read it after all the Twilight stuff, and it was so refreshing to read a strong female teenage character. I really need to read the other two in the series... #TuneIntoNovember

Grave Mercy is my new favorite book of all time. It follows a girl named Ismae as she trains to be an assassin at a monastery, where the nuns are handmaidens of Death. There's female friendships, a slow-burn romance, political intrigue, court drama, and suspense throughout the story. I loved it to pieces, and each book is somehow better than the last. This series deserves so much more hype! 5 stars. 😍😍😍

I read this trilogy back in October and loved it ever since. Each follows a different protagonist, and each girl's storie is vastly different from the previous.The subjects tackled by these books, especially Dark Triumph, are rather dark, so be prepared. I loved how the author seamlessly blended historical facts with fiction, the friendship between the girls, and how their personalities and actions seemed real and logical.
