Teaser Tuesday (15)

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  1. Grab your current read
  2. Open to a random page
  3. Share two (2) β€œteaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
    BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  4. Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My teaser this week is:

Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers

“Where I truly excel is in the poison workshop with Sister Serafina, the soaking and stewing, pressing and distilling, learning the nature of all the deadly substances and how best to coax their poisons from them and combine them for the desired effect.”

Grave Mercy (His Fair Assassin, Book 1)
by Robin LaFevers


I’m almost through with this book, and I’m thoroughly enjoying it. The concept of assassin nuns is fantastic and unlike anything I’ve read before. There is a lot of political intrigue and shifty characters and of course, a budding romance between the two main characters. The book is well-written with a lot of historical detail, which does make it move a bit slower than I would like, but I’m still gripped! I highly recommend it to anyone that loves historical fiction!
