EPUB Ò Grave Mercy ï Robin LaFevers Why be the sheep when you can be the wolfSeventeen 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 he ‘‘So’’ she says looking back at me ‘‘You are well euipped for our service’’ ‘‘Which is’’ ‘‘We kill people’’ Everything in this fantasy book approaches perfectionMaybe I have been bewitched compelled but when I think of this novel the word ‘‘masterpiece’’ is the first one that comes to my mind Historical and fantasy make delightful mélanges when the two of them are present in a novel The story may not have been of the same rare uality as Clockwork Angel for example but there is something fascinating about those two genres combined nonethelessSometimes there are authors that make us ‘think’ and try to ‘convince’ us that their heroine is special when in fact she is nothing than another lucky chick In this case though Ismae really was one of a kind and the generalisation above does not include Robin LaFevers And when I say that she appeared different and powerful I do mean it For instance Ismae's body possessed immunition againt poison No poison on earth was to kill her Also she could talk to souls Needless to say no body risked outmatching her Which was not only exciting but also refreshing I was so tired of whiny heroine that always need their knight in shining armour to rescue themI saw countless reviewers complaining about the pacing I am not going to dare say that it was nothing but fast – since that would be a lie but to me there was no ‘slowness’ really And that because 1 I was strongly hooked 2 enjoyed the writing so much – very well adapted to the context and century by the way and 3 in every chapter there was something new a different scene which made sure that I was never tired of seeing the same characters over and over again or perhaps fear boredom But if the story does not appeal to you from the beginning I am sure you will find this long and endless She leans forward then as if eager to tempt me with what Mortain offers ‘‘If you choose to stay you will be trained in His arts You will learn ways to kill a man than you imagined possible We will train you in stealth and cunning and all manner of skills that will ensure no man is ever again to threat you’’ The characters primary and secondary ones were not always ‘uniue’ but they had personality Of course I had read about many duchesses and men plotting marriage for power and wealth but those personages being included in this plot along with everything aside – magic secrecy and an ounce of mystery – brought the banal situation of scheming to a new level And a most unsettling one may I add for I had no idea what would happen in the end and who will have to die for the situation to be resolvedOne thing I do not seem to read often about is assassins Not because they are not at the top of my fantasy professions list; it’s just that I do not choose reads in purpose for the story to contain some If there are then fantastic But if none are included then I will not interrupt my read or skip the book because of it I admit though that the last assassin book I had read did not appeal to me It was Midnight Thief and that one specifically I stopped reading when I started being annoyed of the romance taking to0 much importance and the heroine risking to go on the path I feared she would take None of that in this however Only fierce talented and conscious of their mi
