Mortal Heart by Robin LaFevers

Book summary:
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... 
        It might be surprising why I waited for so long to finish this trilogy. Well the thing is, Annith was one I had high expectations for. After reading Dark Triumph somehow this series started to get away from me, as I did't connect with it as much as I did with Grave Mercy. But luckily for me, Mortal Heart returned this on the right track.

        It'll be heart to write a review solely about this book without spoiling the first two for you, so I won't say much. But after hearing Ismae and Sybella's stories it was time to go back to covenant and get to see how things really function there. Annith as one who has been there for a long time has a lot to say about it. She always felt like worthless as she didn't get to go and fulfill her missions without knowing what's really behind all that. After her fears came true and she found out that she is about to become the next Seeress and forever kept in the covenant it's time for her to show what she is really made of.

        I wasn't surprised that I always felt strong connection with her as she is so much like me. Always working hard and giving her best but at the same time obedient. Luckily for me she got to be herself and take things into her hands. One weird thing happened though. I really shipped romance here from the start. It had all elements that I was looking for, slow building and whit that ups and downs. But even when I realized what's really happening it didn't bother me as much as I expected. So heck to the author, who made me fall for it to the point of no return.

       All in all, this is one of the series that you must have on you reading list. It'll take you back in history, our history and add a spark of magic there.

Rating: 4.5 stars.

Until the next time,

  1. Glad you ended up being pleased with the way this all ended and with Annith! This was such a great trilogy for me so I'm happy you liked it so much as well.

  2. I've not started this trilogy yet but I really want to! Something about assassins just gets me excited! Great review, Tanja! :)

  3. I really enjoyed this one but I wasn't as big a fan of it as you were, probably because the romance didn't have me 100% on board. Still, I'm so glad you enjoyed this trilogy, Tanja! I'm curious to see what LaFevers writes next!

  4. This was actually my least favorite of the three, maybe because of my too high expectations. Unfortunately, the romance just didn't work for me, not at all. I'm glad you weren't disappointed, though. Robin writes so so beautifully.

  5. This is the one series I know so many people have enjoyed but to be honest, it hasn't grabbed for feels yet I'm afraid but I'm so glad you enjoyed the series overall! :)

  6. Annith always interested me from the start as well, she was so mysterious. I'm so glad you liked this one, I felt the same! As for the romance, I rarely see twists coming so on the page where she asks him for that favor and the truth was revealed asdfghjkl!! Loved it. Nice review :)

  7. I have to get back to this series myself. I only read the first book, and Janhvi has been behind me to read the other two, which I will, soon. I'm glad you could relate to Annith on such a personal level. Great review, Tanja!

  8. I really need to read this trilogy soon, especially since each book features a different heroine, correct? I would love to see and witness how each of their story connects with each other and with the grander picture as a whole. Plus, Annith sounds like an interesting, layered character, and I like reading heroines who work hard in the things they do!

  9. I finally got around to reading Grave Mercy earlier this year. I liked the book a lot, but I opted not to continue with the series. I just didn't feel the need to go on to the next book when I finished.
