The Assassin's Daughter (The Inheritance Proclamation, #1)
I'm Robin LaFevers. Author's Historical Note for Grave Mercy. Subscribe to my newsletter You can also sign up to receive blog updates by email here. What I enjoyed about this book was how strongly LaFevers characterized Sybella, and the way she developed over the course of the book. Much of Sybella's personality is shaped by a dark past, a fact that she makes no attempt to hide.
She's fiercely independent and sure in her own skills, both in and out of battle.

Sybella has no great internal struggle with killing people. She's merciless in the way she doles out death and takes a fierce pride in her ability to do so. Her scars and bruises are a well-earned mark of pride, borne of years spent honing her technique.
Sybella's relationship with the Beast of Waroch progresses from one borne of survival they must journey across the land to return to the Duchess's side to one of mutual respect and affection. Beast is bluntly described by all to be a largely ugly, hulking creature. Yet his heart of gold is unimaginable as he strives to protect Sybella as he fights alongside her. As Sybella's romantic interest, he's nothing like the knights in shining armor he's a true warrior, loyal and lionhearted to the core. Their slowly developing relationship progresses from grudging respect to genuine admiration.
Beast grows to understand that Sybella is only herself when she's fighting off would-be assassins and foiling traitorous plots. He also understands that she's capable of protecting herself, especially after she rescues him from d'Albret's prison and protects him as he recovers from his injuries. LaFevers showed much of Sybella's background to illustrate how horribly she was mistreated and what terrors she had encountered. And while Sybella thought that her inability to act and stand up for others made her a coward, LaFevers makes it clear that Sybella displayed courage and strength just by surviving her ordeal.
At the same time, Sybella's time with Beast allows her to let down her emotional barriers and recover the parts of her that she had shut away to protect herself while she had endured d'Albret's household. Slowly, Sybella begins to trust people again, as she glimpses the good in humankind that was so absent from her life with d'Albret.
