Giveaway (CAN): Mortal Heart by Robin LaFevers

Mortal Heart is the third and final book in the His Fair Assassin Trilogy by Robin LaFevers, and it's coming out THIS Tuesday, November 4 - Who's excited?!

I know I am. I was totally enamoured with the "assassin nuns" concept when I first read Grave Mercy, but I think the real strength of these novels lies in the portrayal of the strong heroines - Ismae, Sybella, and Annith - and the slow-burn romances. They also introduced me to the idea that historical fiction that is heavy on the details doesn't need to be scary - it can be super interesting! I absolutely cannot WAIT to read Annith's side of the story in Mortal Heart.

Here's a peak at Annith's story:
Annith has watched her gifted sisters at the convent come and go, carrying out their dark dealings in the name of St. Mortain, patiently awaiting her own turn to serve Death. But her worst fears are realized when she discovers she is being groomed by the abbess as a Seeress, to be forever sequestered in the rock and stone womb of the convent. Feeling sorely betrayed, Annith decides to strike out on her own.
She has spent her whole life training to be an assassin. Just because the convent has changed its mind doesn't mean she has...

And thanks to Thomas Allen & Son, I have one finished copy of Mortal Heart to give away! The only restriction is you must be Canadian (I'm sorry, eh. I'll host an international giveaway soon for everyone!).

  1. I confess, I still need to read my copy of Grave Mercy - but I just know I'll love it, considering how much I love big books with ALL the details. And assassin nuns: HELLO. With the third book coming out, I KNOW I NEED to get started soon! Thanks for the fabulous giveaway hun ♥

  2. Can't enter but totes retweeted it!! :D
    This one actually sounds very good but I could never really get into the first one so I sort of let this series go, but I do hear this one is excellent.

  3. I can't wait to read this one! I looooove this series! :)

  4. Grave Mercy is a favourite of mine! I have to agree that at first the amount of details intimidated me. However, after getting into it I found that all of that detail really aided the story. Anyway, I would love to add this pretty to my shelf. Thank you so much for the giveaway!! (I'm so happy I live it Canada <3)

  5. I'm super duper amped about this one. I'm in the middle of listening to the audiobook, though its taken me all year I'm still just about 1/3 of the way into it. I own book #2, so of course I'd LOVE to get my hands on the final one in the series. Thanks for having such an exciting giveaway!!!

  6. I can't wait to read this one either!! I agree - the heroines really make this series. I thought Ismae was amazing in Grave Mercy.

  7. I wish I were living in Canada. :P Congrats to the winner!
