Dark Triumph by Robin LaFevers


Dark Triumph is book two in the His Fair Assassin series.  

Sybella's duty as Death's assassin in 15th-century France forces her return home to the personal hell that she had finally escaped. Love and romance, history and magic, vengeance and salvation converge in this thrilling sequel to Grave Mercy.

Sybella arrives at the convent’s doorstep half mad with grief and despair. Those that serve Death are only too happy to offer her refuge—but at a price. The convent views Sybella, naturally skilled in the arts of both death and seduction, as one of their most dangerous weapons. But those assassin's skills are little comfort when the convent returns her to a life that nearly drove her mad. And while Sybella is a weapon of justice wrought by the god of Death himself, He must give her a reason to live. When she discovers an unexpected ally imprisoned in the dungeons, will a daughter of Death find something other than vengeance to live for?

My review of the book:

This book was amazing.  I liked book number one but I loved this book.  Sybella is a very, very deep  character and she evolves a lot throughout the book.  I loved seeing the battles and struggles she goes through as she journey's away from her past and into her future.    I loved watching her fall in love with an unlikely character and loved how she slowly told her story.  This book was the best YA Novel I have read in a while.  

Robin LaFever takes you on a mythical journey through the past and it is amazing.  For all you YA/Historical/Mythology fans out there this is an amazing choice for you.  If you haven't read the first book, Grave Mercy, then you should definitely read them both.  Amazing books!!

My Rating:

On a five star scale it gets five stars.
