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?
Everything: No, seriously! Solid plot, complex characters, gorgeous writing, everything everything everything. I could go on and on but let me highlight some notable favorites of this book below.
Sybella: This novel starts off with an amazing opener and I loved how deeply LaFevers connects you to Sybella and what a rich and complex character she is. Sybella has gone through a lot during her life, and while she is strong and capable of handling herself in combat, she's still human and seeing such a rich character study was amazing to read.
Secondary characters: The supporting characters in this novel, most notably Julian, D'Albret, Duval, and Ismae, who herself was the main character in the first installment of this series, were all fully fleshed out and three dimensional characters. Nobody in this book was one dimensional and LaFevers's attention to detail makes this a great read.
Nothing: Literally, nothing. Nothing at all.
