If you could sum up Grave Mercy in three words, what would they be?

Captivating, Entertaining, Thought-provoking

Who was your favorite character and why?

Main character, Ismae. She is relatable (emotion-wise, not the whole assassin/ Death's daughter thing). She is so well written that her actions and thoughts seem like it could be anyone. She is torn between loyalties, and doesn't know who to trust, believe, etc. She doesn't know whether to trust her heart or her mind. Plus--she's a badass assassin who doesn't take anyone's crap!

What about Erin Moon’s performance did you like?

Okay, the narrator was amazing! She did different accents, voices, and more. She was great!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Probably the tagline of the book: "Why be the sheep when you can be the wolf?"

Any additional comments?

Definitely glad this popped up in my recommendations.

What does Erin Moon bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Grave Mercy was absolutely OUTSTANDING!!! Author Robin LaFevers turned the concept of death into one hell of a story. A wonderful mix of fantasy, gods, assassins, royals and the game of thrones. I was enthralled from the very beginning to the end. The audio version made it all the better. Narrator Erin Moon was fantastic and she brought all the characters to life with a fervor that was unique to each individual. This pair worked great together. I am looking forward to experiencing more of Robin LaFevers and Erin Moon's work. AMAZING!!!!
