Grave business

GRAVE MERCY by Robin LeFevers(Houghton Mifflin 2012) combines romance, intrigue, and assassination in an action packed romp through 15th century Brittany. Ismae is sold to a pig farmer by her father. However, when the pig farmer sees that Ismae was poisoned in the womb by her own mother, he throws her into the cellar. Ismae escapes and flees to the convent of St. Mortain, a convent dedicated to service to St. Mortain, Death. There Ismae is trained in the wiles of seduction and in the many ways of assassination. Her first mission sends her the court of Anne who is supposed to be crowned as Duchess of Brittany. However, there is some opposition to this move. Betrayal, love, war: all will entrance readers of paranormal romance. <317>
