I lean forward, pushing my body out past the battlements. The wind plucks at my cloak, buffets against me, as if it would carry me off in flight, just like the birds or the knight's soul. Let go, it cries, I will take you far, far away. I want to laugh at the exhilarating feeling, I will catch you, it whistles seductively.

The convent has returned Sybella to a life that nearly drove her mad. Her father's rage and brutality are terrifying, and her brother's love is equally monstrous. When she discovers an unexpected ally imprisoned in the dungeons, will a a daughter of Death find something other than vengeance to live for?

"There is a deafening clatter of hooves out in the courtyard as the men return, followed by the sound of soldierly chaos - the rattle of discarded weapons, the creak of leather, the clang of mail and armor.  Usually, there are shouts of victory and coarse laughter, but not today.  Today, the men are eerily silent."

I really enjoyed reading "Grave Mercy" and I've wanted to read the sequel to the series for a long time!  So far, everything sounds pretty interesting and I can't wait to see where this goes next!
