Dark Triumph
by Robin LaFevers
Series: His Fair Assassin #2
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin
Publication date: April 2, 2013
Genre: YA Historical Fiction
Purchase: Barnes and Noble/Amazon/Book Depository

Sybella arrives at the convent’s doorstep half mad with grief and despair. Those that serve Death are only too happy to offer her refuge—but at a price. Naturally skilled in both the arts of death and seduction, the convent views Sybella as one of their most dangerous weapons. But those assassin’s skills are little comfort when the convent returns her to a life that nearly drove her mad. Her father’s rage and brutality are terrifying, and her brother’s love is equally monstrous. And while Sybella is a weapon of justice wrought by the god of Death himself, He must give her a reason to live. When she discovers an unexpected ally imprisoned in the dungeons, will a daughter of Death find something other than vengeance to live for?

This heart-pounding sequel to Grave Mercy serves betrayal, treachery, and danger in equal measure, bringing readers back to fifteenth century Brittany and will keep them on the edge of their seats.

I loved the first book in this series, Grave Mercy and it made my top five for YA books in 2012. So I am eager to continue and cannot wait for Sybella’s tale. Who doesn’t love kick-ass assassins, mystery and intrigue? You can see my review of Grave Mercy here.
Dream Eyes
by Jayne Ann Krentz

Series: Dark Legacy #2
Publisher: Penguin/ Putnan books
Publication date: January 8, 2013
Genre: Adult Paranormal
Purchase*: Barnes and Noble/Amazon/Book Depository 

The death of her friend and mentor, Evelyn Ballinger, brings psychic counselor Gwen Frazier back to the small town of Wilby, Oregon, and brings back memories she would rather forget. Two years earlier, a killer stalked the members of one of Ballinger’s research studies including Gwen. And though she survived while two others didn’t, Gwen knows that Ballinger’s death is related. Sent by a friend to help Gwen, psychic investigator Judson Coppersmith arrives in Wilby barely in control of his own talent and his own life, haunted by urgent dreams. His attraction to Gwen is primal, but there are secrets he must keep to protect himself from surrendering to her completely, even as their investigation draws them into dreamscapes, into decades of deception, and into the paranormal fires of a desire too strong to resist. . . .
Jayne Ann Krentz and her special kind of paranormal suspense/romance have been on my must read list for a number of years. I read everything she writes under every name she uses. She is truly talented and I am drooling with anticipation. You can see my review of book one, Cooper Beach here.

    I don’t know why I’ve gotten the impression that I wouldn’t like Grave Mercy that much…I should give it a shot though…I actually think I bought an e-copy a while back…will have to go check on that. I definitely need to pick up some Jayne Ann Krentz though…you reminded me a while ago how much I love her in all gher incarnations!
