Every bit as good as (maybe even better than) the first book in the series, this second installment was full of action and nearly impossible to stop listening to. I loved learning Sybella‘s backstory, and she couldn‘t be much more different from Ismae. Strong writing and a compelling plot. This is definitely the best fantasy series I have read in a while, and I‘m looking forward to reading book 3 very soon.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Laughterhp Love this series! Well at least the first 2. I haven‘t read the 3rd yet. 3w

AlaMich I read Dark Triumph last month and now cannot wait for the next one. Did you read the trilogy that came before? It was equally great! 😊 3w
sprainedbrain @AlaMich no?! There‘s a trilogy that came before? I will have to check that out. I read the first one in the series recently and just had to continue. Love them! 3w
AlaMich @sprainedbrain oh yeah! You‘re in for a treat! In fact, reading the trilogy will give you a ton of backstory to Dark Triumph. The first book is 3w

AlaMich Wait, I see that you read Grave Mercy! 3w
sprainedbrain @AlaMich yes, loved Grave Mercy. 😃 3w
AlaMich @sprainedbrain 🤦🏻‍♀️ Disregard everything I said! I got your book mixed up with the first book of her new series. Never mind.... 3w
sprainedbrain @AlaMich well this is still good news. There is a another trilogy coming after I finish this one?? 3w
AlaMich @sprainedbrain There‘s the His Fair Assassins trilogy, of which you‘re currently reading the second book, and then LaFevers is writing a duology. The first book of that is Courting Darkness, which I just finished. The second book probably won‘t be published for awhile. The duology picks up exactly where the trilogy leaves off. (edited) 3w

This book was so much like Grave Mercy (duh same characters and author). I loved it even more than I loved Grave Mercy. This one was much easier for me to follow and connect with. My favorite thing about these books are how flawed and raw each character is. It shows how real it is.
One thing I did have to complain about was that sometimes the author would tell me things rather than show me, especially when it came to inner dialogue.

⭐⭐⭐⭐

Could I possibly be more obsessed with this series?

I swear the second one was better than the first.

Daughter of death trained as assassins ✔️
A “beast” of a man who saves the good people ✔️
A relationship that develops over the love of killing the bad guys ✔️
Poison ✔️

🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️

AlaMich Aren‘t they the best?! She has to hurry up and write the sequel to Courting Darkness before I wither away from anticipation!! 1mo
Ashley_Nicoletto @AlaMich They are amazing. I very rarely just devour an entire series and I‘ve already checked the third book out from the library. 1mo
sprainedbrain Ooooh this series looks intriguing. Is it overly YA, though? (If that makes any sense...) 1mo
Ashley_Nicoletto @sprainedbrain No, I‘m not even really sure it deserves a YA classification. It takes place in like an old French society so people are younger when they marry etc. But it has mostly adult concepts. I didn‘t know it was YA and then this weekend I saw it on the YA shelf at B&N and was shocked. 1mo
sprainedbrain @Ashley_Nicoletto Thanks! I‘m going to check it out. 1mo

I was rereading this for the #24in48 readathon and I really enjoyed it. Even though I enjoyed the first book, this one improves on some of Grave Mercy‘s faults. The writing and plotting are better. The characters are still interesting and compel me to keep reading! I enjoyed the audiobook and can‘t wait to read book three.
My total for 24in48 came out to 17 hours!

Listening to this audiobook. I‘m making a lot of progress for #24in28 - I think I‘m at almost 10 hours. I doubt I‘ll make 24 today but happy with all the reading I‘m doing.

JazzFeathers I'm a bit jealous. I am at a scant 2 hours. This book looks intetesting 😊 8mo
KeepCalmWithBooksAndCoffee @JazzFeathers Good luck today! This series is great. 😁 8mo

The second installment of the #HisFairAssassins #trilogy is even better than the first! Sybella‘s story is heartbreaking at times, but I loved seeing how her characters evolves throughout the story.

Ahh this second book was so good! Sybella‘s story and journey is so heartbreaking and personal. I am so glad Beast was a part of it. I can‘t wait to read the next book in this series!

I don‘t want to say too much and spoil anything!

If you haven‘t read this series yet, you should start!!

Because it‘s hard for me to leave a series behind, I read book 2 in the “His Fair Assassin” series. Truthfully, I liked this more. Each book follows one of the three girls introduced in the first book (acolytes of St. Mortain). Sybella is such a feral character; I wanted to know her back-story. It is intense. I will read the 3rd book at some point. I‘ve been distracted by others.

knittedgnome I really liked the first one of these but not enough to read the rest. Maybe someday. It could have been because I was reading it in between Sarah J Maas. 1y
MirrorMask @ErinSueG Yup just these three for this series. 1y
MirrorMask @knittedgnome I was planning on doing the same, but all the reviews say that the second book in the series is the best one. 1y
knittedgnome Oh then hmm. I will have to give it a go!! 1y
MirrorMask @knittedgnome I ended up bailing on Dark Triumph. It didn't hold my interest. 1y
knittedgnome I appreciate the heads up! I don't think I will bother giving it a go. 1y

Confession dear #Littens. I needed a break from the crazy of #GOT. As someone warned me, I would be very tempted to throw the book. So this gem was my pallette cleanser. A #YA story, though rather dark and moody. Being me, I am not surprised I loved it. ❤️📚🐛

Book II of His Fair Assassin series. I did not realize initially that these are also basically YA romance, a genre I don't usually read (not that there's anything wrong with that!!) but by the time I figured it out I was in pretty deep.

This sequel was almost better than the first book! I related Sybella more than Ismae. She is a beautifully hurt and flawed character. Also, this book deals with physical, emotional, and sexual abuse, and may be a trigger for some. I found the way these issues were dealt with to be empowering. It holds strong positive message for anyone who has dealt with abuse by blaming themselves. And of course the romance was beautiful. Also, Beast! ❤️

moranadatter Wonderful! This series is on my TBR. 3y
TizJ3ss @kmdartist Yay! It's soooo worth it! I hope to finish the last book by the end of the year! 3y

The second book in the #hisfairassassin series is indeed dark, as the title implies. Sybella, the second of Death's handmaidens, is hardened because of abuses she has suffered, and many parts of her story are difficult to read. Ultimately, though, she does triumph over the demons in her past, literal and figurative. 4 dark, brooding stars.

I love this trilogy top to bottom, but Sybella's story stands out. She kicks ass in more ways than just the most obvious.

Librarygirl88 Love this trilogy but agree she was the one I wanted to know more about 3y
