Mortal Heart by Robin LaFevers
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Annith has spent her entire life training to be an assassin. Recently, she has watched her friends be sent out in the name of St. Mortain, yet she has not been trusted with a task. One of the skills she has honed over the years is listened through closed doors. This skill exposes a shocking truth … the abbess is planning to make her a Seeress and she will never be allowed to leave the convent. Being sequestered is not in Annith’s plans and she sets out on an adventure of her own making.
Mortal Heart is the third and final book in the His Fair Assassin trilogy. Ismae and Sybella are brought into this final story and readers will delve deeper in the dark world of fifteenth century Brittany. LaFevers holds no punches as she weaves the tale of these three strong women and the epic battle for the throne of Brittany. Many times a final book does not hold up to the first book, yet Mortal Heart is an exception. This concluding book kept me turning pages all the way till the end!
