The fact that I'm assigned to read this for class makes me feel like I'm getting away with something. It was so good! Historical fiction with pre-Christian gods in Brittany, dealing with France wanting to take over Brittany.
An assassin serving those elder gods, now called saints to fit in with the Christian dictates.
If I didn't know this was historical fiction, with real place names like Nantes, I'd have shelved it under fantasy. There's a supernatural/magic element going on with Ismae, the assassin. Which absolutely worked for me.
