Dark Triumph - Robin LaFevers
I think I’ll be in the minority when I say that while I enjoyed Dark Triumph, I liked Ismae and Duval’s story in Grave Mercy much more.Dark Triumph does a good job of showing us how Sybella has managed to survive the brutal upbringing she's had as the 'daughter' of Albrecht but I didn't feel any real connection with anyone else. Her and Beast's romance felt thin to me and I didn't get the sense that their HEA inevitability had substance and permanence.
