Grave Mercy has everything that I like in a book. It’s dark, and evil dipped in adventure with a bit of love on the side. It has twists and turns, that pull you from one way to the other. From the first page to the last, you’ll be obsessed with Ismae Rienne.
Ismae is a daughter of Mortain: the god of death. She is taken by the abbey of St. Mortain and given a choice; Get married to some boring old dude or become an assassin.
So she begins her training as an assassin. Finally, after years of waiting, she is sent to eliminate her first target. She goes and kills him but there is a mistake. A man comes to explain this to the abbey, his name is Gavriel Duval.
Ismae and Gavriel are sent out on an adventure with lots of death and disguise, and they just might fall a bit in love too.
