The Quiet and the Calm

Sometimes American society can view being an introvert as a bad thing.  In my opinion, they couldn't be more wrong.  There is a time to be outgoing and outspoken, but there is also a time to be quiet and reflective.  Finding that balance in your life can sometimes be very hard.   Anything that puts you out of your comfort zone is going to be difficult.

Grave Mercy (His Fair Assassin #1) by Robin LaFevers
My Rating: 5 stars
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?
