"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's WoW selection is...



Add to Goodreads
Title:  Dark Triumph
Author:  Robin LaFevers
Series:  2nd book in His Fair Assassin series
Publisher:  Houghton Mifflin Books for Children
Publication Date:  April 2, 2013

Sybella arrives at the convent’s doorstep half mad with grief and despair. Those that serve Death are only too happy to offer her refuge—but at a price. Naturally skilled in both the arts of death and seduction, the convent views Sybella as one of their most dangerous weapons.

But those assassin’s skills are little comfort when the convent returns her to a life that nearly drove her mad. Her father’s rage and brutality are terrifying, and her brother’s love is equally monstrous. And while Sybella is a weapon of justice wrought by the god of Death himself, He must give her a reason to live. When she discovers an unexpected ally imprisoned in the dungeons, will a daughter of Death find something other than vengeance to live for?

This heart-pounding sequel to Grave Mercy serves betrayal, treachery, and danger in equal measure, bringing readers back to fifteenth century Brittany and will keep them on the edge of their seats.


Why I'm waiting:  This is the sequel to Grave Mercy, which I loved.  Actually, it's more of a companion novel than a sequel, as this is Sybella's story, not the continuation of Ismae's.  I really enjoyed seeing Ismae's fate as an assassin come to fruition in the first book, but something about Sybella always intrigued me.  I can't wait to read more of her story!

What are you guys waiting on this week?

  1. I never finished Grave Mercy but I want to give it a go again. Sounds like I could read this one still since it is a companion.
    My WOW

    1. Yep, I think you could read this one without having finished Grave Mercy, though I think you should read that one. It starts off slow but gets really good. :)

  5. I guess I need to read Grave Mercy because this shiz looks awesome. Covers with heavily cowled cloaks and daggers get me EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.
