Teaser Tuesday: Dark Triumph

I was a big fan of the first book in the His Fair Assassin series, Grave Mercy. A dark historical featuring carefully trained female assassins serving the god of Death in 15th century France? Bring it! Here's a totally random teaser from book number two, Dark Triumph, which I'm starting today. From page 62:

     For a brief moment, I consider dumping the entire contents into my wine. If I drink all of it, I will never wake up. The thought of going to sleep and never having to deal with d'Albret or the abbess or Julian again is as seductive as a siren's song.
     But what if Death rejects me again? Then I will be forced to lie weak and vulnerable, at the mercy of others while I recover. A most terrifying thought.

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

  1. Great teaser. I have this book on my TBR mountain. Come see my teasers for Sharp by Alex Hughes and The Madman's Daughter by Megan Shepherd. Happy reading!

  2. I look forward to this book. I loved Grave Mercy.

    Mine is here.

  3. I received the book and it looks quite menacing staring at me from the bookshelf, calling me to read it. Alas, I school work hasn't let me. Great teaser!
