Grave Mercy (His Fair Assassin, #1)

"Grave Mercy (His Fair Assassin, #1)" by Robin LaFevers
Published: April 3, 2012

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?

I actually bought this book recently. I thought that it just sounded so unique and I couldn't help but buy it because of that. I plan to read it pretty soon as a part of one of my book hauls that I have planned. I've seen pretty good reviews, but it does have a few unhappy ones as well. I just really hope that I love it!
