Daring You To Read is a weekly feature here on Tynga’s Reviews where we dare you to read some of our favorite older releases (at least 6 months old). All the books/series we choose to feature are titles we adored and think you should give them a shot! We think it’s a super awesome way to discover that special book who might have slipped off your radar!

This week I am daring you to read Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers because the release of the second book, Dark Triumph, is coming soon (well in April… but I’m so anxious!) and I can’t stop thinking about it. Now would be a great time to get your hands on it so you’ll be ready for the second instalment!
Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers was definitely one of my favourite reads on 2012 and I find it hard to convey my love for it in just a few sentences so I have to invite you, beg really.., to go on and read my review.
If you are in a hurry though, I would say that this high fantasy world was like nothing I’ve read before and its originality will sweep you off your feet. Ismae is the daughter of Death himself roams Brittany (Great Britain) punishing the guilty. Her Faith will be tested in more than one way and her heart will also be challenged by the mysterious Duval. If you like castles, conspiracies and secret love, you will be hooked onto LaFevers’ every word, I promise you!
About Grave Mercy:
Why be the sheep, when you can be the wolf?
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?
So, will you take the dare?
