I was born for killing – the gods made me to ruin.

At the Convent of Sweet Mercy young girls are raised to be killers. In a few the old bloods show, gifting talents rarely seen since the tribes beached their ships on Abeth. Sweet Mercy hones its novices’ skills to deadly effect: it takes ten years to educate a Red Sister in the ways of blade and fist.

But even the mistresses of sword and shadow don’t truly understand what they have purchased when Nona Grey is brought to their halls as a bloodstained child of eight, falsely accused of murder: guilty of worse.

Stolen from the shadow of the noose, Nona is sought by powerful enemies, and for good reason. Despite the security and isolation of the convent her secret and violent past will find her out. Beneath a dying sun that shines upon a crumbling empire, Nona Grey must come to terms with her demons and learn to become a deadly assassin if she is to survive…

My Thoughts

Mark Lawrence is an author that I have been meaning to read forever now! I sometimes want to switch things up and read adult fiction rather than young adult fiction. I feel like I am trapping myself in a way when I read only young adult titles. There is so much more out there to experience, and so many other great stories to add to my favorites list. I plan to read the other two series that Mark Lawrence has out prior to reading this one, so I may have to binge read them shortly. I am very much looking forward to this title.

What are your thoughts on adult fiction vs. young adult fiction? Do you read one primarily, or do you dabble in both?What is a book that you are patiently waiting on? Feel free to leave the link to your Waiting on Wednesday post!
