Monday Recs. - 6/9/14

Hey guys! Being sick + computer screens = not going to happen. If that wasn't a big hint, then I'll tell ya, I'm sick. And it really really sucks because I haven't done a few posts because sitting in front of a computer while being sick just makes it worse - at least for me. So that's why I missed posts and I absolutely HATE missing them, I feel like I'm letting everyone down!

But to the point at task, before I get a headache from typing right now, is that this week's Monday Recommendation is Grave Mercy (His Fair Assassin Book #1) by Robin LaFevers. I don't know if you remember but last week the Monday Recs. post was also an assassin book...I'm starting to see a trend...hmm. Anyways this book is AMAZING! It's historical fiction with assassins and magic and the two main characters are to die for! I love them so much! I highly recommend it which is, duh, why it's on Monday Recs!!!

When I read this book, this was basically what was on my mind the whole time regarding the book and it's characters **cough** Ismae & Duval! Like I'm said, I love them so much because they are both just fantastic characters to read about!


Summary: Why be the sheep, when you can be the wolf?

Seventeen-year-old Ismae escapes from the brutality of an arranged marriage into the sanctuary of the convent of St. Mortain, where the sisters still serve the gods of old. Here she learns that the god of Death Himself has blessed her with dangerous gifts—and a violent destiny. 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.

Ismae’s most important assignment takes her straight into the high court of Brittany—where she finds herself woefully under prepared—not only for the deadly games of intrigue and treason, but for the impossible choices she must make. For how can she deliver Death’s vengeance upon a target who, against her will, has stolen her heart?
