So when I heard that this book was about assassin nuns...
It just sounded so ironic that I just had to read it!

I have no idea what exactly was going through my mind but for some reason when I heard "Assassin Nuns" I imagined a bunch of nuns with shades on carrying a gun and possibly also a briefcase.
JUST SO WE'RE CLEAR!
This book takes place in the 1400's so...
-No shades
-No guns
-No briefcase

So what exactly is this book about?
Our main character, Ismae, has just been put into an arranged marriage that has an unmentionable outcome but is rescued and taken into the convent of St. Mortain (The god of death). She is trained at how to kill a man in a variety of different ways so that she can carry out the work of Mortain and kill those that are "marked" by him.
Shortly after finishing her training, Ismae is sent to the center of Brittany after rumor of betrayals to the duchess.
Her job? Get rid of the betrayer.

This book was actually very interesting!
Although it did start out slow and get a little bit confusing/annoying every now and then. IT WAS AMAZING!

My suggestion? Try reading it!

A word of CAUTION: This book is a BRICK! It's over 500 pages long! But please do not let that scare you!
