I first heard about this book because of a blog that I was following. Robin LaFevers was one of the contributors and when I saw it at the library, I decided to check it out. I fell in love with the world building and the historical fantasy, and the characters. The book is really well written, with images coming to life on the page. The story is about Ismae, who is the daughter of death. She ends up at a nunnery that worships death and is trained to be an assassin. There is a beautiful love story, and the second in the series, Dark Triumph is just as good. The third Mortal Heart will come out in November.
