Dark Triumph - Robin LaFevers Probably closer to a 3 1/2. I just didn't connect with Sybella the way I did with Ismae. The writing was superb. The road trip essence of the novel annoyed me at times. Horses, ambush, win, horses, ambush, win. I would have preferred more intrigue at court. I can't wait to see what Annith has in store for us.
