Publisher's Summary

When Sybella accompanies the duchess to France, she expects trouble, but she isn’t expecting a deadly trap. Surrounded by enemies both known and unknown, Sybella searches for the undercover assassins from the convent of St. Mortain who were placed in the French court years ago. 

Genevieve has been undercover for so many years, she no longer knows who she is or for what she’s supposed to be fighting. When she discovers a hidden prisoner who may be of importance, she takes matters into her own hands.   

As these two worlds collide, the fate of the duchess, Brittany, and everything Sybella and Genevieve have come to love hangs in the balance.

Love this world!

So excited to have these stories continue! Seeing Sybella and Beast again was so wonderful. I do dislike that, unlike the earlier books, we didn't get any closure at the end of this book. The other 3 books had self contained storylines that came to a close at each book's end, plus a large storyline that tied them together. Seems as if this book, and the next, will be more cohesive which leaves me unfulfilled right now. Looking forward to the next book, and I do hope it isn't the end because this world is one I would love to visit again and again.

Doesn't live up to the trilogy...

Grave Mercy is on my favorites shelf. I struggled to finish this. Hundreds of pages/five hours could have been eliminated.
Both mc's got on my nerves, most especially Genevieve.

The narrators didn't help the cause. Thank technology for variable speed playback.

Very disappointed

I love the “his fair assassin” books. Annith and Isme being my favorites and Sybellas my least. Some of the reason I disliked this book might have been that only half the time we are following a new character and half we are back with Sybella. Nothing really happens in this book except that both main characters whine a lot about their fate and make poor decisions. There is very little romance either. Just when I thought it was getting interesting the book ended and left so many unanswered questions and plot lines for the next book.

Back to the word of Saint Mortain.

I love being back in the his fair assassins world with the followers of Saint Mortain (#StillteamDeath). I very much enjoyed both Sybella and Genevieve stories.
Sybella protecting her beloved Douches of Brittney ... her sisters and her love Beast. Amidst the treachery of the french court.
Genevieve had her own trist with the mysterious Maraud, the prisoner she'd rescued from the dungeon who had purposely left there to die. I have to say when I got to the end I would like what! It ended a bit abruptly and now I cannot wait for the next story. All and all a good fast paced read.
Seriously love me some assassin nuns.

Amazing!

Filled with intrigue, mystery, suspense, drama, action, and romance. A sheer delight made even more interesting with two points of view.
