First off, a starred review from Shelf Awareness! They love how "LaFevers blends history, intrigue and the forces of influence, while also putting a human face on the events". Then MORTAL HEART popped up as 6th on the Winter 2014–2015 Kids' Indie Next List. Move over Katniss Everdeen, the nuns of St. Mortain are the new girls on fire!

There's more good news, if you can believe it... School Library Journal has a lovely interview with Robin and if you haven't seen it, you'll want to check it out. It's so insightful as to why Robin wrote this amazing series. Congratulations, Robin! The His Fair Assassin trilogy is going places!
