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...

My Review: 



What's good about it:

Setting: The setting is always amazing in this series, and I loved seeing Annith travel with the Helliquin, and the female warriors serving Saint Arduinna throughout the countryside of Brittany. 

Plot: Mortal Heart has a great and satisfying plot just like the other two books in the series. I loved the character development and plot twists involving Annith and everyone around her.

What's bad about it:

Long: Mortal Heart is over 400 pages long, and I found that it dragged in some points towards the middle of the story.

Romance: I didn't dig the romance too much. It was okay, but I felt like Annith didn't need a romance to tell her story. 

Final Thoughts:

Mortal Heart is a great conclusion to His Fair Assassin series and I found that it was just as entertaining as the rest of the series.

Check out my review for the other installments in the series: 
Grave Mercy (His Fair Assassin #1)
