    Sybella arrives at the convent’s doorstep half mad with grief and despair. Those that serve Death are only too happy to offer her refuge - but at a price. The convent views Sybella, naturally skilled in the arts of both death and seduction, as one of their most dangerous weapons. But those assassin's skills are little comfort when the convent returns her to a life that nearly drove her mad. And while Sybella is a weapon of justice wrought by the god of Death himself, He must give her a reason to live. When she discovers an unexpected ally imprisoned in the dungeons, will a daughter of Death find something other than vengeance to live for?

    Story
    Would you listen to Dark Triumph again? Why?

    Unlikely. While I am intrigued by the tale, the writing was verbose, the main character too repetitive and needy of acceptance.


    If you’ve listened to books by Robin LaFevers before, how does this one compare?

    Not as good as Grave Mercy.


    What three words best describe Angela Goethals’s performance?

    Nice.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    It seems this book was rushed to print and further rushed to audio. I was waiting for it too come out but could have waited longer if it was done better.

    Four decades of peace have done little to ease the mistrust between humans and dragons in the kingdom of Goredd. Folding themselves into human shape, dragons attend court as ambassadors, and lend their rational, mathematical minds to universities as scholars and teachers. As the treaty's anniversary draws near, however, tensions are high. Seraphina Dombegh has reason to fear both sides. An unusually gifted musician, she joins the court just as a member of the royal family is murdered.

    Shannon says: "Completely Inspiring Fantasy"
    "Beautifully written and exhilerating story"

    What did you love best about Seraphina?

    The writing was so tight. Ms. Hartman has a good editor. Only the words that were needed were there. It was so intricately written.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Seraphina. Because she was smart and brave.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Scenes with alma and criggs


    Any additional comments?

    Listen to it. It is lovely and captivating.
