Cover Reveal: Mortal Heart by Robin LaFevers

Mortal Heart by Robin LaFevers
His Fair Assassin #3
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
YA historical fantasy
Expected publication: November 4th, 2014

Tentative summary:
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.

But across Brittany, the tides of war are drawing ever nearer, with France pressuring the beleaguered duchess from all sides. Annith’s search for answers threatens to rip open an intricate web of lies and deceit that sit at the heart of the convent she serves. Yet to expose them threatens the very fabric of her existence and risks an unforeseen chance at love, one that she can no longer deny. Annith must carefully pick a path and, gods willing, effect a miracle that will see her country—and her heart—to safety.
Y'ALL! I'M SO EXCITED FOR THIS BOOK!!! His Fair Assassin series is one of my favorite series EVER and I'm so excited (and sad) for the conclusion.

Some facts about this amazing series:
  • This is a trilogy but it's not your typical squeal series. Each book is a standalone with it's own main characters BUT it's not a companion series either. Grave Mercy, Dark Triumph and soon enough, Mortal Heart, should be read in order. 
  • So each book is a standalone but it has an epic plot that's spanning the entire three books. 
  • Both Grave Mercy and Dark Triumph are AMAZING. No second book slump or anything like that because these books stand on their own and they deliver business.
Why you should read this EPIC series (and it is epic):
  • These books are historical with a dash of fantasy. Our three main characters Isaeme, Sybella and Annith are the daughters of.... DEATH.
  • They're not only the daughters of death they're also... ASSASSINS!!
  • So we have three badass assassins on our hands in the middle of politics and war and it's SO well written and interesting.
  • SWOONY ROMANCE. Not just romance but SWOONY. LaFevers will give you swoon-attacks.
  • Dark YA!! These books are no joke. LaFevers doesn't shy away from mature themes and I would love to see more mature YA like this. 
So I LOVE Grave Mercy. I LOVE Dark Triumph and I can NOT wait for Mortal Heart!!!! This series is a gem and I'm so sad it's coming to an need but I know it will fininsh in an awesome fashion.
