Chris's September 2013 Staff Pick: The adventure of the Fair Assassins continues, this time with Sybellas’ story. She has a much darker past than some of her Assassin sisters. Sybella must overcome her dark ghosts and help keep the Duchess safe. But she must also learn to love...
The Fair Assassins Series is based on real people and events in French history. The second book is just as much a page turner as the first one.— From Chris's Picks

New York Times BestsellerSpring 2013 Kids' Indie Next List Sybella's duty as Death's assassin in 15th-century France forces her return home to the personal hell that she had finally escaped. Love and romance, history and magic, vengeance and salvation converge in this thrilling sequel to Grave Mercy. 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. The convent views Sybella, naturally skilled in the arts of both death and seduction, 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. 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?
