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?

Feb 26, 2015

is a weekly feature hosted by Breaking the Spine that 
showcases upcoming releases people are very much anticipating.

This book sounds reminiscent of Girl With a Pearl Earring and A Mad, Wicked Folly, both of which I loved. The synopsis is super intriguing, especially if there's a romance with the one and only Leonardo da Vinci. And I love the cover! So, book. Get in my hands already.

Blog Tour: The Sin Eater's Daughter by Melinda Salisbury

Feb 19, 2015

Hello, bookish fiends! Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Melinda Salisbury's The Sin Eater's Daughter! This book is totally CRAY CRAY, and I'm excited to share my review of this twisty (oh my gosh, THE TWISTS) book with you (and if you're interested, you can see the interview I did with Melissa a while ago here). And of course I'll tell you all about the book and where to find the author, and there's a giveaway you'll want to enter because you're going to want this book. And if not...well, then I'd try to avoid running into Twylla.

Once a century, one person is chosen for greatness.

Elisa is the chosen one.

But she is also the younger of two princesses, the one who has never done anything remarkable. She can't see how she ever will.

Now, on her sixteenth birthday, she has become the secret wife of a handsome and worldly king—a king whose country is in turmoil. A king who needs the chosen one, not a failure of a princess.

And he's not the only one who seeks her. Savage enemies seething with dark magic are hunting her. A daring, determined revolutionary thinks she could be his people's savior. And he looks at her in a way that no man has ever looked at her before. Soon it is not just her life, but her very heart that is at stake.

Elisa could be everything to those who need her most. If the prophecy is fulfilled. If she finds the power deep within herself. If she doesn’t die young.

Most of the chosen do.
