Title:  Dark Triumph
   Author: R.L. LaFevers
   Release Date: April 2nd, 2013

     Sybella arrives at the convent’s doorstep half mad with grief and despair. Those that serve Death are only too happy to offer her refuge—but at a price. Naturally skilled in both the arts of death and seduction, the convent views Sybella as one of their most dangerous weapons.

     But those assassin’s skills are little comfort when the convent returns her to a life that nearly drove her mad. Her father’s rage and brutality are terrifying, and her brother’s love is equally monstrous. And while Sybella is a weapon of justice wrought by the god of Death himself, He must give her a reason to live. When she discovers an unexpected ally imprisoned in the dungeons, will a daughter of Death find something other than vengeance to live for?

     This heart-pounding sequel to Grave Mercy serves betrayal, treachery, and danger in equal measure, bringing readers back to fifteenth century Brittany and will keep them on the edge of their seats.

My Stance:

     LaFevers comes back and it sounds strong! I haven't read her first book, Grave Mercy, but I am in such love with the synopsis of that book, that I couldn't stop or hesitate but to read the synopsis. LaFevers I don't know what you're drinking to make your brain come up with all this, but I want some. Your brain must be on crack or some other hyperactive thought inducing serum, to come up with a plot, something that's not only inspiring and thought inducing, but so romantic and heart throbbing.

     Sybella, from where I am standing and my knowledge, is an assassin who is being used and pulled in different directions from both her father and brother. In this book there is talk about a god of Death, so would be there be a god of Life? Multiple gods for different emotions? So if Sybella is a daughter of this god, what is it she's wants? and I doubt that she has to follow what her "father" says, or what he has planned for her. Destiny for her...

     So I am going to look forward to this series when I get around to it. I want to get into Sybella's world, understand who she is, and her brother and father don't get to leave the picture either. I want to understand why her father is so controlling, has nearly uncontrollable anger and brutality; than there is her brother whose love is endless and sounds to be suffocating. The world, and the relationships are large and in charge here, and I applaud you LaFevers.
