I wasn't sure how I would feel about it at first, particularly as it is published for "young adults"... due to devastating circumstances a young girl becomes a hit woman (trained by assasin nuns) working for the god of death... (I know, I know!) but there is just the right mix of historical fiction, romance, action (okay, violence) and a strong female leading lady. I have quickly been transported to the 15th century and thinking about the characters even after I've put it down... maybe not the best book to read while traveling with friends. I'll try to be good company, and to keep my Old English to a minimum during conversation. Mayhaps. And, oh dear, it is the first book in a trilogy, which means I'll be at sea with a cliffhanger. (Is that what happened to Noah's Ark?) But I'm getting ahead of myself. More when I return!
