Grave Mercy

Grave Mercy - Robin LaFevers Pockets of gripping intrigue between yawning stretches of utter boredom.
Instead of making this a scattergun approach with a little bit of political intrigue, a little bit of historical drama, a little bit of romance, a little bit of magic - failing to combine all these elements the author needed to just pick one genre and stick to it.
Great idea - the convent raising female assassins but it doesn't go far enough, instead the author makes the heroine in this book a bit wishy washy at times as she succumbs to romance.
