Waiting on Wednesday #11


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly blog post by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights releases we're eagerly awaiting.

My pick this week is:

Title: Grave Mercy
Series: His Fair Assassin # 1
Author: Robin LaFevers
Expected publication date: April 3st, 2012

Summary: 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?

Why I'm waiting on it: Because who doesn't like pretty assassins, poisons and NUNS??? And on top of that, the cover is just amazing! I will definitely be reading this book, seeing that I was invited to by Netgalley, like probably many of you were. 

So how about you? What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
