Waiting on Wednesday: Dark Triumph by Robin LaFevers

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine which spotlights eagerly anticipated upcoming releases!

I'm 3/4 of the way through the first His Fair Assassin book, Grave Mercy, and I'm LOVING it. Dark Triumph comes out on my birthday next year -- I'm definitely pre-ordering it so I can celebrate with a good book ;)

Dark Triumph Cover Title: Dark Triumph
Series: His Fair Assassin, Book 2
Author: Robin LaFevers
Genre: YA Historical
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Books for Children
Release Date: April 2, 2013

Book Description (from Goodreads):

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. Naturally skilled in both the arts of death and seduction, the convent views Sybella 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. Her father’s rage and brutality are terrifying, and her brother’s love is equally monstrous. 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?

I used to love Historical fiction, but I haven't tried YA historical yet.
