Dark Triumph (YA)
Book #28 Read in 2013
Dark Triumph by Robin LaFevers (YA)
This book is the second in a trilogy. It picks up right where the first book, Grave Mercy, left off. This book focuses on the story of Sybella. She is a masterful assassin and has a certain target in mind. While waiting to strike, she must help a prisoner of war escape. Sybella gets more than she expected with this prisoner, but that is not necessarily a bad thing. Duval and Ismae from the first book are in this book as well. The third book will be out in the spring of 2014.
This book is action packed. The characters are complex and interesting. Sybella is a strong woman who takes care of herself. Along with the action of this book, there is humor and romance. This historical fantasy is an interesting mix of genres. Some historical figures are in the book, though the author details at the end some of the liberties taken with them. I recommend this book and this series.
I received this book from Amazon Vine, in exchange for a review.
