It might be 2016 instead of 2017, but the same old routine continues. And so I quickly slip into my business suit and head back into the office to save a few innocent people. But while I try to fool myself into being excited about the promise of a new year and the continuation of the regular grind, deep down, I’m not, so I’m going to escape dreary reality by reading some great books.
This week I’m spending my time with the upcoming release by Mark Lawrence.
Series: Book of the Ancestor #1

Length: 432 pages
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…
Hope you enjoy! My review will drop Wednesday.

Awww yesss!!! I can’t wait to read this one, but will probably wait a little longer before I dig in. 😀
I’ll probably wait a little closer to release to read too, but I hope you’re enjoying it!
Man, you and your ML fangirling 😉
I read it. My review won’t drop till closer to release but I expect to be on the outside looking in when it comes to popular opinion.
The nun school and training not to your liking? (I’m only 50% in, so I’m hoping the great parts of the book are before me.)
