I was so nervous to read this book. Grave Mercy was so good….how could a second book top it?
Dark Triumph is Sybella’s book which really made me nervous because Sybella is a bit insane.
But Oh. My. Goodness. THIS BOOK WAS AMAZING. I decided to read this book while waiting for Elder Scrolls Online to download. It downloaded 1% in the time it took me to read this book. Whether that tells of how fast I read, or how slowly ESO downloads...
Sybella is awesome. She is a survivor, albeit a broken one. She is an absolute badass, and she loves fiercely. Her character development was fantastically plotted. The reveals along the way... I won't spoil them, but they were amazing.
Sybella’s family is FUCKED UP. Not just a little. A crap ton. But how she gets through it, how she survives, how she opens up to the Beast…it is beautiful. I actually cried during one part of this book.
We don’t get as much politics (government or convent) in this book, but all the signs of a storm brewing are there. I am pretty excited for the culmination of all the intrigue and lies going on in the covent to happen in book three.
This book gets 5 out of 5 stars. Definitely one of the best books i have read this year.
