Waiting on Wednesday (22)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that allows bloggers to share which books we are most anticipating.
This week, I am waiting on Dark Triumph by R.L. LaFevers (4/2/13):

Description on GoodReads:
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.
So, this is not my favorite cover and I was also a bit disappointed to learn that this book wasn’t about Ismae. However, I will read anything this author wants to write about in this world where nuns are trained to be assassins. This story also sounds completely messed up and powerful. I’m so excited to see what happens with Sybella even though she’s not Ismae. Why would the convent return her to her old life? I’m dying to know things about the state of the convent. And I know I’ll be hoping for certain cameos from characters past. Though, I’m not sure if this will be possible. We shall have to wait and see. What are you waiting on this week?


  1. I haven't read this series yet but I've heard great things about it.
    My WOW

  2. I'm excited for this too! Can't wait to see Sybella's story. I do agree with you about the cover, Grave Mercy definitely has this one beat, oh well.

    Here's my WoW at Bookmunchies (:

  3. Personally, I'm pretty excited for Sybella's story. However, I am with you on how terrible this cover is, and I do hope we get to see Ismae and her man stop by.

  4. Thanks for helping me add to my TBR list!!! Happy Reading! Here is my WoW for this week!

  5. This book looks good!
