Waiting on Wednesday: Dark Triumph by Robin LaFevers

New WoW

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine to spotlight upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


Dark Triumph (His Fair Assassin #2)
by Robin LaFevers

Expected publication date: April 2,2013
Houghton Mifflin Books for Children

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.

I LOVED Grave Mercy, book #1 in the His Fair Assassin series. (my review)  The writing was exquisite and I was so sad to leave that world when it ended. 

Sybella was a fascinating character and I’m dying to read her story. I imagine it will be much darker than the first book. 


    I loved Grave Mercy too!
    Everyone has such good choices this week ;0

  2. O I SO SO SO SO SO SO SO agree. I can't wait!

  3. O and I agree, I'm thinking Sybella has been through more and is more about vengeance.

    1. It's going to be amazing. Sybella has baggage lol

  4. I can't wait for you and JuJu to get your hands on this :) I am sure I will hearing squeeing all over the place :)

    1. The covers are gorgeous too! i read Grave Mercy as an ebook. I need to buy the finished copy.

  5. I've seen this around a lot today. Great choice :)

  6. Hey - your song widget isn't showing up. What albums have you been listening to most lately? I've gotten really into Passion Pit's Gossamer and The Head and the Heart's new album.

    1. It's missing!! I didn't notice.

      I'm kind of stuck on P!nk when I'm working out every night for some reason lol Her new Truth About Love CD.

      I found the new Sons of Anarchy season 2 soundtrack and love that. It's kind of a downer but really beautiful songs.

      Awolnation - To be honest I don't love the CD but I saw them live and they were amazing so listening brings me back to the concert.

      I don't know The Head and the HEart. I just pulled up Spotify to find them.


    2. I've never really gotten into P!nk. I'm more of a Ke$ha fan when it comes to top 40. So catchy.

      Also forgot to mention that I'm loving Metric's new album. Have you heard of Lord Huron? I like their music too.
      I'm not familiar with Awolnation much.

    3. I don't usually like her either. It's this one CD and only when I work out. lol

      The new Awolnation CD isn a't a favorite but they were so amazing in concert (I actually went because Imagine Dragons was opening - not for them) that I've started listening more.

      I heard a few of Metric's new songs but I haven't listened tot he full album yet.

      I liked The Head and the Heart so I'll look up Lord Huron next.

  7. I haven't read Grave Mercy. I used to be really into assassin's stories. Maybe I'll check these out.

  8. I think you would like that one Pam.

  9. I loved Grave Mercy, too. I'd love to see more Ismae and Duval, but I'm equally as intrigued by Sybella's character. Great pick! Thanks for sharing. Here's my WoW. Happy Wednesday!

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

  11. I haven't read book one yet but I heard it was good. I hope you enjoy reading this one when it comes out. Nice pick!
    Come check out my WOW post.

  12. Nice pick! I never got around to reading Grave Mercy, but they look good. Thanks for sharing!

  13. Great pick! I still need to read Grave Mercy! :P
