Description

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?

    I have a tendency to dislike 1st person narratives, and that is one of the detractors from the book. While Ismay had her own "voice" as a narrator, I found it common. The strength in the book lay in its history and description of the period, and in the believability of the characters' belief in the 'old gods' and their power. The political machinations of various characters were balanced well with the more personal stories. The romance aspect of it was predictable, but not horribly done. Overall, a decent read that could have been better.
  • Awesome!

    I first read this in sixth grade (maybe a bit too young) but I LOVED it. Ismae is a well-developed character who kicks butt. This is an amazing read!

    I loved this book. I bought it when it first came out and I still read it to this day. And when I bought it, it was $20 😂 now it's $2. I believe that this book is worth so much more. It's truly an amazing read. *P.S. You should read all of the series 👍
  • Excellent read

    The book was so well written. The characters were interesting, independent and exciting. The plot followed historical facts but not to the point of losing the story. And what an interesting twist for the main characters to be handmaidens of death. Now I HAVE to read the rest of the books in the series!
