BY ROBIN LAFEVERS
When you count Death as a friend, who can stand as your enemy?
Sybella, novitiate of the convent of Saint Mortain and Death’s vengeance on earth, is still reeling from her God’s own passing, and along with him a guiding hand in her bloody work. But with her sisters on the run from their evil brother and under the watchful eye of her one true friend (and love) at court, the soldier known as Beast, Sybella stands alone as the Duchess of Brittany’s protector.
After months of seeking her out, Sybella has finally made contact with a fellow novitiate of the convent, Genevieve, a mole in the French court. But when Genevieve mistakenly draws the attention of the French king to the convent of Saint Mortain and its deadly arts, she may do her sisters (and herself) more harm than good. Sybella, having already drawn the ire of the French regent, may not be able to depend on her sister and ally as much as she hoped. Still, Death always finds a way, even if it’s not what one expects.

Eeee. I had been meaning to post a cover reveal post for this gorgeous thing. But I never got the energy for it, oops, and it has now been many many months since this cover came out. Ack. But yesss. I am so DYING to read this book. I loved Courting Darkness so so so much. And the original trilogy is perfection too. I cannot wait to know how it all ends. Ack. So very nervous too, of course. But simply cannot wait :)
What are you waiting for on this dark Wednesday?
