First in a duology, this darkly thrilling page-turner set in the world of the best-selling His Fair Assassin series is perfect for fans of THRONE OF GLASS, RED QUEEN, and GAME OF THRONES.

When Sybella accompanies the Duchess to France, she expects trouble, but she isn't expecting a deadly trap. Surrounded by enemies both known and unknown, Sybella searches for the undercover assassins from the convent of St. Mortain who were placed in the French court years ago.

Genevieve has been undercover for so many years, she no longer knows who she is or what she's supposed to be fighting for. When she discovers a hidden prisoner who may be of importance, she takes matters into her own hands.

As these two worlds collide, the fate of the Duchess, Brittany, and everything Sybella and Genevieve have come to love hangs in the balance.
Robin LaFevers, author of the New York Times best-selling His Fair Assassin books, was raised on fairy tales, Bulfinch's mythology, and nineteenth-century poetry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epic Fantasy Writer Robin LaFevers is back!! This return to the fight for power over Brittany and France brings the daughter of Saint Mortain and Assassin Nun, Sybella d’Albret back to face a new foe in her service to the Duchess. We are also introduced to Genevieve, a of Saint Mortain so deeply ensconced in the French court she wonders if she has been forgotten.
This new and exciting tale from Robin LaFevers set in the same world as His Fair Assassin is told from both these women’s POVs. With Court intrigue, battles for power, and romance (did I mention that Beast is back?), this first book in a new duology is masterfully written with both loved and despised complex characters.
A must read for any fan of fantasy, YA or otherwise! Only thing missing is book two! Watch for this to hit shelves on February 5, 2019!! Oh! And can I just please reiterate...Assassin Nuns!
