Description

When Sybella arrived at the doorstep of St Mortain half mad with grief and despair, the convent were only too happy to offer her refuge - but at a price. The sisters of this convent serve Death, and with Sybella naturally skilled in both the arts of death and seduction, she could become one of their most dangerous weapons.

But her assassin's skills are little comfort when the convent returns her to the life that nearly drove her mad. Her father's rage and brutality are terrifying, and her brother's love is equally monstrous. But when Sybella discovers an unexpected ally she discovers that a daughter of Death may find something other than vengeance to live for . . .

Action, courtly intrigue, supernatural and a beautifully written romance, just as Grave Mercy, this has all the elements to bewitch fans of Lauren Kate and Philippa Gregory alike.

'Brimming with powerful emotions, thrilling sword fights, and accurate period detail, this tightly plotted tale will enthrall readers of romantic historical fantasy.' - Publishers Weekly

Review quote

"Brimming with powerful emotions, thrilling sword fights, and accurate period detail, this tightly plotted tale will enthrall readers of romantic historical fantasy." * Publishers Weekly * "The prose's beauty inspires immediate re-reads of many a sentence, but its forward momentum is irresistible. An intricate, masterful page-turner." * Kirkus (Starred Review) * "Beautifully written with a strong female protagonist. It is sure to bewitch fans of Philippa Gregory and Lauren Kate." * Lovereading * "If you thought that Ismae was a dark and troubled character in Grave Mercy, then wait until you get to know Sybella... Highly recommended reading for anyone looking for exceptional storytelling" * YA Book Reads * "Thrilling, stomach churning stuff in the vein of Game of Thrones . . . If you enjoyed Graceling or Witchstruck then you will love this series." * Ink and Paper Hearts *
