I've raved about books 1 and 2 -- now it's time to rave about book 3.
Book 3, Mortal Heart, follows Annith, a daughter of Mortian and one of his most talented handmaidens. Only she's never been sent out of the abbey to do the bidding of the Lord of Death.
Official Goodreads description:
Annith has watched her gifted sisters at the convent come and go, carrying out their dark dealings in the name of St. Mortain, patiently awaiting her own turn to serve Death. But her worst fears are realized when she discovers she is being groomed by the abbess as a Seeress, to be forever sequestered in the rock and stone womb of the convent. Feeling sorely betrayed, Annith decides to strike out on her own.
She has spent her whole life training to be an assassin. Just because the convent has changed its mind doesn't mean she has...
I devoured this book. DEVOURED. Annith's story was awesome, her love connection just as fulfilling as the last two books, and the intruige!
We finally get to KNOW the Abbess. Who she is, what she wants, what she is plotting. All comes out in this book. It's messy, awesome, and everything I wanted.
Read these books. Seriously. Action-filled, well-written, enough romance to keep you grinning like a fool, and enough court intrigue to have you biting your fingernails. If I could give these books 6 stars, I would.
