Description

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?

      • bioText:

        Robin LaFevers was raised on a steady diet of fairy tales, Bulfinch's
        mythology, and nineteenth-century poetry. It is not surprising she
        grew up to be a hopeless romantic.Though she has never trained as an
        assassin or joined a convent, she did attend Catholic school for three
        years, which instilled in her a deep fascination with sacred rituals and
        the concept of the Divine. She has been on a search for answers to life's
        mysteries ever since.While many of those answers still elude her, she
        was lucky enough to find her one true love, and is living happily ever
        after with him in the foothills of Southern California. Visit her website
        at www.robinlafevers.com.
