Waiting On Wednesday | Mortal Heart by Robin LaFevers


What's this? Another Wednesday blog hop? I discovered Waiting On Wednesday a few weeks ago, and I just thought it was a really fun idea to spread some book love. This feature is hosted over at Breaking the Spine, and is a weekly event to showcase an anticipated, upcoming release!

(No What's Up Wednesday post from me this week - you'll understand why next week!)

My pick this week is:

Mortal Heart by Robin LaFevers

Expected Publication Date: 4th November, 2014

Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt

Annith has watched her gifted sisters at the convent come and go, carrying out their dark dealings in the name of St. Mortain, patiently awaiting her own turn to serve Death. But her worst fears are realized when she discovers she is being groomed by the abbess as a Seeress, to be forever sequestered in the rock and stone womb of the convent. Feeling sorely betrayed, Annith decides to strike out on her own.

She has spent her whole life training to be an assassin. Just because the convent has changed its mind doesn't mean she has.

But across Brittany, the tides of war are drawing ever nearer, with France pressuring the beleaguered duchess from all sides. Annith’s search for answers threatens to rip open an intricate web of lies and deceit that sit at the heart of the convent she serves. Yet to expose them threatens the very fabric of her existence and risks an unforeseen chance at love, one that she can no longer deny. Annith must carefully pick a path and, gods willing, effect a miracle that will see her country—and her heart—to safety.

Why I'm Waiting: I can't wait to finish off this trilogy! I was pleasantly surprised with Grave Mercy and I loved Dark Triumph, so I'm really excited to see how this trilogy is going to end and to see how Annith is going to fit into the story. Ultimately, how could I not love a story about assassin nuns?


What are you waiting on?

    1. Aw, that's a shame! I must admit I thought I was going to hate it when I first started to read it, but once Ismae got away from the convent I began to enjoy it a lot more. :)
