Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers

Reviewed by Melissa Rader (Library Staff)

Political intrigue, simmering romance, and a handmaiden of death all bring this 15th century historical fantasy to life. Seventeen-year-old Ismae is sent undercover by her unusual Convent to the high court of Brittany to protect the country’s young duchess. Low-born and trained as an assassin, Ismae does her best to navigate the pageantry and subterfuge of court life, as well as determine who she can trust.

This is the first in a trilogy, and each title features a different handmaiden on her mission from the Convent. I will definitely be reading book 2!

BONUS: The final installment of the trilogy was published this past November so if you begin the series now, you won’t have to wait for the next volume 🙂
