What I Loved: Robin LeFevers does a fantastic job with Grave Mercy! I love stories set in historical settings especially when they are carried out so greatly. Ismae is a great leading character and from the beginning you feel the need to cheer her on. Grave Mercy contained all sorts of exciting elements. There were the old gods that must be worshiped in secret, courtly intrigue and an unexpected love. one of the best parts of Grave Mercy for me is that I didn’t figure out who was behind all the bad things happening at the court until Ismae did.
What I Could Have Lived Without: To be honest I have no complaints. Grave Mercy was a great read and one I encourage everyone to try.
Recommended For: Readers who enjoy historical fiction with a pinch of romance and mystery.
Avoid If: Historical fiction isn’t your taste. (Even then I’d suggest giving it a try.)
