Waiting on Wednesday (10)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases people are excited for.

Title: Dark Triumph
Author: Robin LaFevers
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Books for Children
Format: Hardcover, 400 pages
Release Date: April 2, 2013


Summary:

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 want it:

I loved Grave Mercy and I have been counting down the days until Dark Triumph is out! Sybella was an intriguing character in Grave Mercy and I can’t wait to read her story! I'm also hoping that Ismae and Duval (and the other characters from Grave Mercy) pop up a lot because I love them. Luckily I don’t have to wait too much longer to read it.

Also, hello pretty cover!

What are you waiting on?

Yep, I want this one a lot too! I really hope Ismae and Duval at least have a scene in this book even as I'm excited to focus on Sybella.

I didn't read the first book, but I know a lot of people loved it. I'll have to get around to it one of these days. Hope you enjoy this one! Nice pick.

I still haven't read Grave Mercy. that book was such a bloggy slut last year! Hopefully the sequel will be just as good. Thanks for sharing!

I loved Grave Mercy too, so I'm definitely waiting for this one!

I am a bit bummed as well that we won't be returning with Ismae and Duval's story because I loved them so much in Grave Mercy, but I am definitely looking forward to Sybella's side! Can't wait for this!

I purchased Grave Mercy not too long ago, but haven't read it yet. I've been hearing great things about this author's writing.
