Mortal Heart (His Fair Assassin Trilogy Book 3), by Robin LaFevers
Annith has watched the daughters of Mortain (god of death) be given assignments, even those not as highly skilled or hardworking as she is. When the abbess surprises Annith by sending out a younger initiate, she passionately challenges the order knowing it will end in the very young child's death.When the abbess says that Annith will never be sent out but become the next Seeress forever fated to stay on the island, Annith balks at the horrible life awaiting her and sets out on her own to serve as Death's Handmaiden. Her first night out, she is captured. But Death has plans for Annith, and not what Annith has trained for all her life. This was a grand finale to the fabulous trilogy. I look forward to reading more from the Author.
