In the powerful conclusion to Robin LaFever’s New York Times bestselling His Fair Assassin trilogy, 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. Feeling sorely betrayed, Annith decides to strike out on her own.

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

Quotes & Awards

  • “LaFevers’ final installment in the His Fair Assassin trilogy is good, if slow to start. Once it gains speed, it moves quickly and purposefully toward its satisfying conclusion. Readers will love the history and the powerful women featured—from a time when there were few—and the love that makes them whole.”

    RT Book Reviews

  • “This final volume in LaFevers’ much-praised His Fair Assassin trilogy centers on Annith, the most brilliant of the young women brought up in the convent of St. Mortain…Both a powerful tale of political intrigue and a heady supernatural romance, this memorable adventure will entirely satisfy devotees of this series.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Clear, fast-paced, dramatic prose reveals the story via short, action-packed chapters, and the expert craftsmanship of the writing is worth savoring. The protagonists’ sometimes-contradictory natures enrich their characters, and the intertwined relationships of realistic and Netherworld personages add depth to their personal stories. A plethora of strong females and their romantic relationships will have wide appeal for teens.

    School Library Journal (starred review)

  • "[LaFevers] offers readers worthy heroines: fair assassins whose emotions and choices are as rich and complex as their fearsome abilities.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “Teens looking for strong, engaging female characters, the evolution of ancient traditions, or a solid adventure tale will adore every page.”


  • “LaFevers effectively ties up the loose ends of the trilogy’s cast—its loves, connivings, and murderous skills—with more love than war.”

    Horn Book Magazine

  • “The glorious series about convent-trained assassins concludes, reframing a main character in ways that shift the meaning of the whole series…Real historical threads provide profound resonance, and plot twists run deep…Annith is sympathetic, and her story is compelling.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Narrator Jennifer Grace gives voice to Annith in the concluding title of LaFevers’s His Fair Assassin trilogy…Grace uses a courtly, articulate style that is similar to the narrators of the preceding titles in the trilogy, giving the listening experience a sense of continuity …[and she] brings out some engaging moments when the drama is high and plot twists are revealed.”

About the Author

Robin LaFevers was raised on a steady diet of fairy tales, Bulfinch’s Mythology, and nineteenth-century poetry. It is not surprising she grew up to be a hopeless romantic. She is the author of over fourteen books for young readers, including the Theodosia series, and the Nathaniel Fludd series, among others.
