Review excerpt: "The biggest reason I picked up Grave Mercy originally was because of the assassin nuns. Because come on, how awesome does “assassin nuns” sound? ... LaFevers uses language so well that I sank immediately into her style without the 5-10 pages of struggle that normally accompanies reading present tense.
Here, she's created a fantastic medieval world of gods, saints, political intrigue, and romance that swept me away completely. And yes, the assassin nuns were pretty much as great as they sounded."
