It’s rare to find a series that gets so much better with each book, but good god, is His Fair Assassin one of them. I enjoyed Gravy Mercy, but for some reason, it took me a while to move forward with the series and start Dark Triumph, which I read a few months ago. Holy hell, Dark Triumph blew me away. The depth to the story and characters was just mind-blowing. I couldn’t believe I waited so long to read it. After that, I was dying for Mortal Heart. Just absolutely dying. And terrified that it wouldn’t be as good as Dark Triumph. I need not have worried, friends. Mortal Heart flew above and beyond any expectations I could have had.
Annith is a character you root for from the first second you meet her. Caring, compassionate, loyal, and dedicated, Annith demands to be loved simply by being who she is. Her desire to discover the truth and to stick up for the younger girls at the convent leads her on a journey she didn’t expect but was one that she was born for. I loved her fiercely and completely.
And by now you know that Robin writes the swooniest, most perfect romances ever. She doesn’t disappoint with Annith and her love interest. They fit together so perfectly, complement each other, and bring out the best in each other.
Perhaps my favorite aspect of the series is how the author took three different heroines, told three different stories, and yet wrote them as a cohesive whole. They feel like a part of each other, and you can see the similarities as much as the differences.
What Left Me Wanting More:
Only having to say goodbye to such beloved characters.
The Final Verdict:
The His Fair Assassin series seamlessly blends fantasy, romance, and history into an unforgettable journey of three brave and extraordinary young women. Mortal Heart is the heart-wrenching conclusion you’ve been waiting for.
