    His Fair Assassin trilogy is a series that got better with each book. I can?t help but scream ?Assassin nuns!? when people say they want to read something ?different.? When the author announced there would be two more books in the series, I was excited. While Courting Darknes...

    4.5 Stars!! I have loved the His Fair Assassin trilogy since the very gruesome, action packed beginning and as the series progressed, it only seemed to get better but not only was the writing better but but as the story grew, as the characters grew, so did the very heart of the stor...

    OK, so here goes. I absolutely loved the His Fair Assassins trilogy. I thought Grave Mercy was good, but not life changing, Dark Triumph was absolutely amazing and Sybella was my total hero. I bawled after this book. And I really loved Mortal Heart just for how unexpected it was. So w...

    Courting Darkness is a spin off book from the His Fair Assassin series, it?s been mentioned that you do not need to read the trilogy before starting this, but I?m going to disagree and say that you should read the trilogy first. There are things going on that you may feel lost and ...

    4.5 stars! I am a huge fan of the His Fair Assassin series and when I heard that LaFevers was writing a companion duology I could barely contain my excitement. The momentI got my hands on this book, I couldn't start it fast enough and HOMG you guys I was not disappointed. Syb...

    I was sent an eARC of this novel from the publisher in exchange for my honest review. This does not change my view in any shape or form. Review also found here at Booked J. First of all, Robin LaFevers is one of my auto-buy authors and I just now realized my reviews of the His Fair...

    3.5 stars. Bit conflicted on this one. It set the next book up beautifully but it took almost 500 pages to do it. I love these characters though and I think the next book will be much better. ...

    I loved the His Fair Assassin trilogy. Maybe my expectations were too high for this especially since one of the main characters is Sybella. Her book was my favorite of the three. The POV switched between Sybella and Genevieve. The parts with Sybella were great despite much of the focus...

    Reading this with my lovely friend, Tammie! Did I get to reread the first trilogy that I loved before this one? No! Do I care? No! ? So I wanted to smack Genevieve there at the end but I get to the last page and chills went down my spine!! Woot!! I was so excited to r...

    Let me start off this review by saying this- His Fair Assassin is my all-time favourite historical fiction series. I was thrilled when I saw the announcement for the new duology and my excitement was through the roof when I received an early copy to read. Courting Darkness is a most ma...

    I have to admit that I am disappointed for this continuation of this series. Here are some of my thoughts: ? So first ? the unpleasant part ? Gen is the worst protagonist so far out of the 4 that has been shown so far. Maybe it is a disservice to let her share this book with ...

    I was told that I didn't need to read the previous trilogy to understand this one. That is just plainly not true. There is almost no world building in this book. The religions don't make sense. The characters supposedly have deep relationships even though they never talk to each ot...

    I was a huge fan of the His Fair Assassin trilogy, so when I learned that there was going to be a spinoff duology, well, to say that I was thrilled would be an understatement. Courting Darkness picks up after the events from Mortal Heart and features both Sybella and Beast, two of my f...

    DNF at 14% and a poop face to those who claim you don't need to read the original series to appreciate this new duology because let me tell you...you really need to read the original series or else this book gives no sympathy for readers new to this world and its cast of characters. ...
