Waiting on Wednesday #28- Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers

Grave Mercy (His Fair Assassin, #1)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where we show off books that we want to read but have not been published yet. 

Title:  Grave Mercy 
Author: Robin (R.L) LaFevers
Release Date: 7 March 2012
Linkto / Summary from Goodreads: Why be the sheep, when you can be the wolf?
Seventeen-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 her with dangerous gifts—and a violent destiny. If she chooses to stay at the convent, she will be trained as an assassin and serve as a handmaiden to Death. To claim her new life, she must destroy the lives of others. 
Ismae's most important assignment takes her straight into the high court of Brittany—where she finds herself woefully under prepared—not only for the deadly games of intrigue and treason, but for the impossible choices she must make. For how can she deliver Death’s vengeance upon a target who, against her will, has stolen her heart?

Why I want it: God of death? Assassin? Handmaiden to Death?  I hope that’s enough to be excited. I could go on for a long long time about the awesomeness of this summary and hopefully this book, but I need to do homework and carry on NaNo.

What are YOU waiting on this week?

News-due to us being really quite busy and not read/reviewed any of our lists yet, Caroline and I are pushing the Japanese YA Novel week back to the 5th-11th December. Sorry xxx
