Teaser Tuesday: Grave Mercy by R.L. LaFevers

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
To play along just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!  

Grave Mercy by R.L. LaFevers

Grave Mercy - Houghton Mifflin Harcourt

When one consorts with assassins, one must expect to dance along the edge of a knife once or twice.
-- Chapter 20

I smile back. we are, for all the world, a happy little party out to enjoy the fine autumn day. But of course, we are not.
-- Chapter 23

I have a soft spot for stories with a historical background, especially medieval courts. Add to that a touch of supernatural and a strong female protagonist ... and a bit of romance, yes ... and you can be fairly certain that I will enjoy it. Grave Mercy fits this bill very neatly. Even if dear Ismae could do with a good reality check from time to time. But then again it is the age of "my god wills it", so I suppose she is quite rebellious for her time. Now for that needle work involving the base of a skull (Chapter 21) ...
