Waiting on Wednesday: Grave Mercy (His Fair Assassin #1) by R.L. LaFevers

By: Robin LaFevers
Published by: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
To Be Released on: April 3rd, 2012
Pre-Order from: Amazon

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? -quoted from Goodreads

This is a book I featured this past week on my IMM Vlog. I am so stocked about reading it. I'm hooked on the premise alone. A young heroine, the angel of death... sounds intriguing right?! I'm really looking forward to sitting down to read this one.
