Ismae is 17 and knows she is marked as a child of death. Impervious to poison, Her life has been one of hard work, little love and being a feared outcast. When he father marries her off, she has a spark of hope that maybe her husband will be different. She immediately discovers the truth, this is just more pain. escaping from her husband, she is spirited away by an herbwitch to a convent that serves the "Saint" of death himself. She is trained as a deadly assassin and comes to feel safe and powerful. When politics threaten the safety of the convent she is sent to do her work. She finds herself cast together with Duval, a bastard son of royalty, sworn to protect his sister Anne and see her on the throne. Ismae cannot protect her heart from falling for Duval as they work together to save Anne. Will she be able to serve Death and her heart as well?
A compelling read! I finished it in two days even in the middle of a crisis at work! I was captivated by Ismae and her God of Death and Duval's earnest charms.
