Book Synopsis(Goodreads):

Annith has watched her gifted sisters at the convent come and go, carrying out their dark dealings in the name of St. Mortain, patiently awaiting her own turn to serve Death. But her worst fears are realized when she discovers she is being groomed by the abbess as a Seeress, to be forever sequestered in the rock and stone womb of the convent.

She has spent her whole life training to be an assassin. Just because the convent has changed its mind doesn’t mean she has…

Quote 1:

“What is it like?”

“What is what like?”

“Death. What is death like?”

“He is quiet and still, and oh, so peaceful. Fear will no longer hold any sway over you, nor will worry or sadness. Can you think of a time when you were especially tired? Perhaps after a long day of travel? Do you remember how lovely it was to climb into your feather bed that night? How grateful your tired limbs were? How welcoming it felt? How delicious to close your eyes and finally rest?”

“Yes.”

“It is just like that.”
Robin LaFevers, Mortal Heart

Quote 2:

“We are all of us, gods and mortals, made up of many pieces, some of them broken, some of them scarred, but none of them the total sum of who we are.”
Robin LaFevers, Mortal Heart

Quote 3:

“I am beginning to think that love itself is never wrong. It is what love can drive people to do that is the problem.”
Robin LaFevers, Mortal Heart
