Dark Triumph finally came available, and I finished reading last night. It is written by: Robin LaFevers. It is the second book of His Fair Assassins book series. It was really good. The other books in the series are Grave Mercy, and Mortal Heart. I love this series. I read on facebook that she is writing more books in this series which is great. Big Warning: there is some incest in this book. The His Fair Assassins book series are historical fiction. The book series is about nuns who are trained to be assassins. The books take place in 1489. Dark Triumph is about a young girl named Sybella. She came to the convent just before Ismae (the girl in the first book) did. Sybella was very wild, but her and Ismae became friends. Once she settled down in the convent, they decided to send her on some assignments. Her fourth (I think) assignment was for her to sent to a man's household. That man was Count D'Albert. Sybella is actually that man's daughter supposedly. But she does reveal later that her mother had slept with Death so she isn't his biological daughter. While she was there in the household, she get another assignment to save a prisoner whose name is Beast. But Beast was very wounded and too heavy for her to carry. She used a lie to keep him going. She was intending to stay so she could kill Count D'Albert. He had no mark, but she was going to kill him anyway. But Beast knocked her out and she ending up going with him. She helped him with his wounds and had help along the way. She is then asked to go back to the Count's household, but Beast had other plans. They fell in love with each other, and he was not going to let her get killed.She finds out why the Count didn't have the mark. His victims didn't want him in the Underworld with them. She watched her brother (he's sick in the head) die by the Count. Then she ends up killing him. I'm reading next: Cross My Heart by: James Patterson.

@jessy3236 sounds like an interesting series. I am writing down the author and the books. Will see if I can find them. Thanks for the book review and another series I can try! Are you going to write a review on the James Patterson book? Have you ever read the author before. I have a book or two of his but never got a chance to read any of them.

I have read the Witch and Wizard series by James Patterson. It was good. Yeah I will do a review of Cross My Heart once it comes available. I'm next in line for it. My best-friend has been giving me James Patterson books and I haven't read them yet. I found out they are on Overdrive and so I'm giving away those books and reading them through Kindle.
