Format: Kindle Source: Purchased
Annith has watched her gifted sisters at the convent come and go, carrying out their dark dealings in the name of St. Mortain, patiently awaiting her own turn to serve Death. But her worst fears are realized when she discovers she is being groomed by the abbess as a Seeress, to be forever sequestered in the rock and stone womb of the convent. Feeling sorely betrayed, Annith decides to strike out on her own.
She has spent her whole life training to be an assassin. Just because the convent has changed its mind doesn’t mean she has…
So, this wasn’t my absolute favorite book of this trilogy, but it is still great. It looks like Dark Triumph will be my favorite. I have to say that I like Annith very much. I love her tenacity and fearlessness. The story really takes off after she leaves the convent. Her longing for freedom and the feats that Ismae and Sybella have experienced, are understandable and I saw no reason why she shouldn’t have them. When she meets Balthazaar, everything seems to fall into place. I loved the chemistry between them. To be honest, I love all the romances in this trilogy. Robin really did a great job of creating strong heroines and swoony courtships. All the politics aside, these are some bad a** nuns.
I think this is a great ending to this series. Would I like more? Heck yes!! Going into the first book, I didn’t expect to fall so hard. I’d recommend this series to anyone who enjoys great writing, characters, world building, and so on. It’s hard to find a series that, with every book, keeps the schemes enjoyable. I know there are more out there, but this is very rare for me to love all the books and not have any unfavorable thoughts. If you haven’t checked out these books, I really hope that you do. And soon!
