Waiting on Wednesday: Grave Mercy

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

My selection for this week is:

Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers
Publication Date: April 3rd 2012
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt

Summary from Goodreads:
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?

What I think:
Grave Mercy is easily one of my most anticipated 2012 YA titles. From the moment I read its premise I have the feeling that it is exactly the kind of book for me. After all, it combines two of my favorite elements: fantasy and assassins! yeah, I have a thing for assassins, what can I say?
