Waiting on Wednesday #66: Mortal Heart

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

My pick for this week's WoW is...

Mortal Heart by Robin LaFevers

Title: Mortal Heart (His Fair Assassin #3)
Author: Robin LaFevers
Release date: November 4th 2014
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
Genre: Young Adult Historical Fiction

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 be an assassin. Just because the convent has changed its mind doesn't mean she has.

This series has some of the awesomest covers I've seen. And this book is no exception. Annith looks so badass in this, with the bow and arrow! I've always been curious about her, and I'm really stoked for her story. November is so far away, though D:


  1. I agree with you about the covers! they are pretty amazing. I still need to read the second book but I hope to before this is released.

  3. I love the cover for this one. I still have yet to start the series though it is very high up on my TBR shelf, I swear! =)

  4. This series is on my wishlist. I can finally start reading it when this third book comes out. I intend to buy the entire series and read it in one go. Hope you like it!

    Here is my Waiting on Wednesday:

  5. I bought GRAVE MERCY about two weeks ago and haven't gotten around to starting it yet. Maybe I'll just pace myself so that I can read Books 1 and 2 right before this one releases. LOL :) Great pick!
