Wishlist Wednesday #10

Hosted by Pen to Paper


Title: Dark Triumph


Publication date: April 2, 2013

Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Books for Children

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 do I want this? Um, you obviously didn't read the synopsis or the first book, Grave Mercy. It's safe to say that I would DIE (along with my sister, Shelver) if I received an ARC of this. I would even die if I got a finished copy a month after its release. If I got any sliver of it, I would die. 

So much death, I know, but it's appropriate considering the circumstances. It's about nun assassins serving Death and Sybella is the toughest of them all. 

Robin LaFevers is not only extremely nice to fans (I had a chat with her over Twitter about Mexican food. It was quite nice.), but she's also an amazing writer. Added to that, Shelver told me some information she received from Robin about this book. So yes, I am extremely excited.


What are YOU wishing for this week?
