My Thoughts On Grave Mercy:
A tough heroine and a history lesson all in one, a Grave Mercy will captivate readers and keep you fascinated. Ismae has been seen birth as something different and while abused and sold, she soon finds herself in a position of power as a Handmaiden of Death or one of Mordain's Daughters.
Grave Mercy will capture readers in a story that is not only Ismae's struggle with her own past and current path in life, but also within what she feels in her assignments and their impact on her country.
As the tides turn and a country is soon steeped in treachery and war, will Ismae be able to choose love, her orders, or the future of her country and the Duchess she has found herself befriending and protecting over the order carried out from her own nunnery?
With ties into history and myth Grace Mercy was an amazing read I ate up. I loved the characters and their interactions with relationships while at the same time I enjoyed the twist of history. This author has created an amazing past that will grip readers and leave us wondering why is next in this fair assassin's future.
