I loved the mythology and world of this book! I loved the concept that with the spread of Christianity the old gods of the region were made into saints. I didn't much care for Ismae at first but near the end she grew on me. I'm not sure why, I think I just found her a tad annoying. I really enjoyed Duval, he was such a well-rounded character. I liked the story and the cast of characters. The idea of a convent of nuns who are trained as assassins was fascinating, and I wish that we could have seen more of Ismae's training. The next book in the series is about Ismae's fellow Sister/Assassin Sybella, and I am very interested in reading more of this world.
