Robin LaFevers / Grave Mercy / His Fair Assassin Series / Compelling!

I was fortunate to be given ARC's of books 1 & 2
Once I started Grave Mercy it was over
No other reading material existed
No free time existed

I finished Grave Mercy and began Dark Triumph
I did not take a breath between books
Finishing Dark Triumph I found Mortal Heart
It was on the shelf in the YA library
It had no business being on a shelf

Finally done, finished, end of series
Three book, Three surprising young women
Three layered stories
Filled with characters you want to get to know
Filled with characters you want to figure out

The compelling element for me
All three books deal with the God of death
The young ladies are, after all, assassins
What they/we learn is Death is a loving God
Death is a natural part of the cycle of life

"Yea, though I walk through the valley
of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil"
Comes to mind
Compelling stories with strong young women
His Fair Assassin Series by Robin LaFevers
Don't Miss It!

Not my usual cup of genre tea
But I like this woman's religious music

Devon Monk / House Immortal / Most Enjoyable

Devon Monk always tells a good story
House Immortal is no exception

Matilda Case is not your average young woman
Matilda Case is "stitched"
Pieces sewn together with "thread"

There are 11 other "stitched"
Known as the Galvanized
Immortal one and all and in their hundreds
Pawns of the powerful houses

Readers will want to get to know Tilly Case
Immortal she may be, She is very young
A pawn to none, A piece to be played by all
Tilly is a righteous young woman

Everyone is out to get Tilly Case
Everyone wants immortality
Tilly has the key

The social and political machinations
Eleven houses out to best the other
Greedy scuts one and all

Book 2, Infinity Bell will arrive soon
I'm in for the long haul with Matilda Case
Don't miss the House Immortal series
Pages will be turned
