Waiting on Wednesday : Grave Mercy by Robin Lafevers

Waiting On Wednesday spotlights upcoming releases that everyone's excited about (created by Jill at Breaking the Spine). 

Goodreads : Why be the sheep, when you can be the wolf?
Seventeen-year-old Ismae escapes from the brutality of an arranged marriage into the sanctuary of the convent of St. Mortain, where the sisters still serve the gods of old. Here she learns that the god of Death Himself has blessed her with dangerous gifts—and a violent destiny. If she chooses to stay at the convent, she will be trained as an assassin and serve as a handmaiden to Death. To claim her new life, she must destroy the lives of others.
Ismae's most important assignment takes her straight into the high court of Brittany—where she finds herself woefully under prepared—not only for the deadly games of intrigue and treason, but for the impossible choices she must make. For how can she deliver Death’s vengeance upon a target who, against her will, has stolen her heart?

Release date : April 3rd 2012

  3. Woo I agree, no that is certainly an awesome catchphrase! I hadn't heard of this one and I absolutely love how it sounds! I like that a girl is going to be super strong and heroic, there needs to be more independent heroine! Great pick Elodie! :)
