Grave Mercy - Robin LaFevers
Full review posted here (joint review with Lou) http://thebookpushers.com/2012/04/11/fantasy-celebration-joint-review-grave-mercyrobin-lafevers/ This book gave me the giddies. I'm not a huge fan of spy stories but the conspiracies and courtly intrigue added so much depth and tension to the story. And it was so cleverly crafted - I was totally sucked in.
