Mortal Heart – Robin LaFevers
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.
Is it over? Is it really over? I’m not ready to be done with this series. Please, I just want more. These books are my favorites and now that the series is over I don’t know what to do with myself other than wallow in my book related depression for a while. Despite wanting more, this book did end satisfyingly. Although, I would still like to know how the lives of Ismae, Sybella, and Annith were after the events of this book. Beast is still my favorite love interest of the three. I have to mention him. -winkwink-
Annith was a really good character. I was surprised to learn those ‘certain things’ about her, which did make her very different from Ismae and Sybella than what she had originally believed. I had my suspicions about the Reverend Mother, but never could have guessed what happened in particular. That just really impressed me. And the love interest in this one.. I don’t know how to feel about him. Let me just consider Annith the luckiest, and undeniably deserving, woman alive.
