Waiting on Wednesday: Grave Mercy

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming novels we can't wait to read. This week’s choice is:

Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
Publish Date: April 3, 2012
Genre: Fantasy
Goodreads Summary: Seventeen-year-old Ismae escapes from the brutality of an arranged marriage into the sanctuary of the convent of St. Mortain, where the sisters still serve the gods of old. Here she learns that the god of Death Himself has blessed her with dangerous gifts—and a violent destiny. If she chooses to stay at the convent, she will be trained as an assassin and serve as a handmaiden to Death. To claim her new life, she must destroy the lives of others.

Ismae's most important assignment takes her straight into the high court of Brittany—where she finds herself woefully under prepared—not only for the deadly games of intrigue and treason, but for the impossible choices she must make. For how can she deliver Death’s vengeance upon a target who, against her will, has stolen her heart?
Why am I waiting on Grave Mercy? Recently, I’ve read some really good fantasy novels and I’m in the mood for more. This book sounds like exactly what I want and love. Plus, who can resist assassin nuns?

What books are you waiting on?
