Grave Mercy - Robin LaFevers Wow, not what I was expecting after having read LaFevers's Theodosia and Nathaniel Fludd series, both MG. This is pretty close to being adult and firmly in the older YA range given the amount of sexuality it deals with throughout. Sadly, I never grew to empathize with Ismae, so the story was a bust for me, though Anne, Duval, Isabeau, Francois and their mother had by far the most interesting story. Forget Mortain and the convent of creepy, morbid pseudo-nuns. Forget Ismae and her mission and her constant attraction to the guy she is obviously going to be told to kill sooner or later. I wish the story had been about and told through the eyes of Anne, Duval and co. They have so much going on and such devotion to each other. Very cool family. Oh, well.

The cover remains awesome.

Content: Mentions of abuse, rape, adultery, murder/violent death, lots of sexuality/semi-nudity. You have been forewarned.
