Ismae is a turnip farmers daughter with a terrible secret, she is the daughter of Death. After a failed abortion she is born with a terrible scar which marks her as no ordinary girl. Sold to a man for three silver pennies her secret is revealed on her wedding night causing her husband to flee in terror (well after beating her up and locking her in a cellar). She gets rescued by a group of hedgewitches and herb fathers and they deliver her to a convent dedicated to the service of St. Mortain, the patron saint of death and Ismae's father! In this convent the sisters dedicate themselves to the art and craft of death so that they may act as Death's handmaidens. Whew, I don't want to tell you anymore so just go out and get this book and start reading it so that you too can revel in the glory that is His Fair Assassin #1!!!
