Review: Dark Triumph by Robin LaFevers

Wednesday, May 21, 2014
Why I chose this book: 
About a year ago, I read Grave Mercy and gave it an average rating. The storyline interested me despite its shortcomings, but not enough to buy a hardcopy of the sequel, so I waited until I got it on sale for $1.99 on After reading the first 20% of the book, I found that I enjoyed this installment much more than Grave Mercy.

But when Sybella discovers an unexpected ally she discovers that a daughter of Death may find something other than vengeance to live for…(Goodreads)

Why I chose this book:

Medieval setting. A female assassin. Court intrigue. What’s not to love? I picked up the book just because it looked exceedingly interesting, albeit somewhat farfetched. I could suspend belief as long as it had a good plot, so I added this one to my ever-growing library. And I have to say, it held an interesting twist between the pages.
