Review: Dark Triumph by Robin LaFevers

In Dark Triumph (His Fair Assassin #2) by Robin LaFevers, amongst a brewing war in Brittany, Sybella, an assassin, and Beast, a fearsome soldier, go up against the evil D’Albret. I really enjoyed Grave Mercy, the first in the series, but I felt this sequel was not as good.

The beginning felt very repetitive; the same tiny things kept happening. But then events left the castle and it got far better, though some of the action felt very ‘put-in’ for the sake of added conflict. I did think it a very good book though, just I love Grave Mercy and the characters of Ismae and Duval together and this didn’t live up to it.

Forgetting the first book for a moment, Dark Triumph was full of mystery, action, and romance which didn’t overshadow the story. I still did enjoy it and am looking forward to the last in the trilogy – Mortal Heart – out next year.
