Tucked into the May issue of Family Circle magazine (circulation 3.8 million!) is a happy surprise—a terrific review of Robin LaFevers's Grave Mercy.
It's a bit hard to read here, so here's the review in full: "If your teen thinks she’s got it rough, introduce her to Ismae. Living in 15th-century Brittany, Ismae narrowly escapes marriage by heading to a convent. But these nuns serve the dark arts: Ismae is trained to be an assassin and schooled in the use of poisons and female persuasion. Then she meets her (love) match in the charming but enigmatic Duval. A rollicking historical romance with a formidable female protagonist bound to win the hearts of teenagers -- and maybe moms too!"
Gotta love that little rowr for moms at the end! Congratulations, Robin!
