Waiting on Wednesday (20)

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.
Coming November 2014, I am so excited for the final installment in Robin LaFevers' His Fair Assassin trilogy.  I have been a fan of Robin LaFevers' work since I picked up her first book, Grave Mercy.  I had the pleasure of meeting Ms. LaFevers in Cincinnati in April last year -- she is truly a fascinating person.  To top off all this excitement, isn't the cover to this out of this world amazing!?

Let me know in the comments what you're looking forward to this Wednesday.  (Cookies for all the lovelies who comment!  Well, and even if you don't, you can still have a cookie.)
