In the powerful conclusion to Robin LaFever's New York Times bestselling His Fair Assassins trilogy, 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 bean assassin. Just because the convent has changed its mind, doesn't mean she has.

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. It is not surprising that she grew up to be a hopeless romantic. She was lucky enough to find her one true love, and is living happily ever after with him in California. Vi...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Good I liked the chemistry between death and Annith, as well as her character throughout the novel. I liked the way the main characters of the first two novels fit into this one for the ultimate last stand of the trilogy. #plumreview

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing! Great final book in the three book series! Death himself shows up as literal and figurative character and I loved the symbolism! Also loved the conclusion and ending each character received.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Ending I was so sad this series ended after only 3 books. Assassin Nuns is not something you come across often and this book ended the series very nicely

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great End to a Series! Mortal Heart is the last book in the His Fair Assassin series which has now become one of my favorites because this book was phenomenal! It was written beautifully with the mix of historial fiction, romance, action and suspense! Each book in the series has been a great read that gets you hooked instantly which I really liked! If you haven't started this series yet I recommend you get the books immediately! Annith is the strongest trained at St. Mortain, but she is quiet and timid. Her abilities are based on how she was taught which is totally opposite of LaFevers past books in the series when Ismae and Sybella were born with their gifts from Mortian. Annith is still waiting for her gifts to be shown to her. She is also been serving longer at the Covenant for long than the other girls and a very skilled assassin. Annith is obedient, but there is rebellion laced into her heart as she determines the truth about the abbess' schemes. The romance in the book was unexpected as we get to see a new male love interest be presented in the story. Balthazaar is one amazing character who is dangerous and edgy! It is very interesting how it was resolved with the romance, because it left you in so much suspense! Overall the romance was breathtaking! The ending of the series was perfect! I am looking forward to many more of Robin LaFevers books because of the writing and how well it flowed in the story. It is very rich in historical detail with that a paranormal edge that it is irresistible. Get this entire series today because after reading it I want to read them all now all over again!
