Blodeuedd's Monday Review: Grey Sister by Mark Lawrence

In Mystic Class Nona Grey begins to learn the secrets of the universe. But so often even the deepest truths just make our choices harder. Before she leaves the Convent of Sweet Mercy Nona must choose her path and take the red of a Martial Sister, the grey of a Sister of Discretion, the blue of a Mystic Sister or the simple black of a Bride of the Ancestor and a life of prayer and service.

All that stands between her and these choices are the pride of a thwarted assassin, the ambition of a would-be empress wielding the Inquisition like a blade, and the vengeance of the empire’s richest lord.

As the world narrows around her, and her enemies attack her through the system she has sworn to, Nona must find her own path despite the competing pull of friendship, revenge, ambition, and loyalty.

And in all this only one thing is certain.
There will be blood.

My thoughts:
I was ...unimpressed :/ Book 1 was so good and then I read this and was all eh. I even started skimming at the end. It just lost some of it's shine. Instead I felt like we got mean girls in a fantasy world. Even Nona was so meh.

I am still really fascinated by the world! I want to know from where they came, why, and what about the culture before them!

But do I wish to read more about Nona? Eh. Sigh, that says it all :/
