Waiting on Wednesday (10) - Grave Mercy

Waiting on Wednesday is a feature hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine that shares the upcoming releases we bloggers are on the edge of our seats about!

(His Fair Assassin #1)
by R.L. LaFevers
Release date: March 2012

(Synopsis from 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?

Yeah, yeah, this doesn't really have a paranormal edge to it. There's something about how she was sired by Death himself or something like that...does that count? But something about it screams to me and I'm pretty excited to read it. Cross my fingers that I get to receive an ARC of it!  :p
