Robin LaFevers’ His Fair Assassin series is unique, compelling and enthralling. The latest installment of the series examines the blood ties between sisters, that defy time and distance in their devotion. It examines the meaning of the word family, and how it can become treacherous and corrupted.
Sybella has trained as Lord Death’s justice, but must now navigate her duty in a world that no longer includes his clear direction. She accompanies the Duchess of Brittany to the nefarious French court, and uses her singular skills to both ensure their safety and extract the spies embedded there long ago.
Genevieve is one of those spies. Her hopes of being made useful have slowly dwindled. Unti Genevieve’s fate becomes entwined with a mysterious prisoner. Genevieve and Sybella each have an extraordinary role to play.
This is the first book in a duology spinoff of the His Fair Assassin trilogy.
