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 empires 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....

Grey Sister (Book of the Ancestor #2) Reviews
Grey Sister brings us right back to Sweet Mercy, around two years after the gore stained climax of the first book, where Nona Grey and her new dark passenger dream of deadly punishments for murderer Yisht while continuing a life of relative normality within the convent walls. We're back where we were before, we're learning about thread-weaving, we're fighting with mean girls, we're spending time with friends. It’s a moment of relative calm, with each girl honing her tribal talents and developing ...more
Executive Summary: I didn't enjoy this one quite as much as Red Sister, but it was still really good
Audiobook: Heather O'Neill does another fantastic job. I love her voices. She reads with good inflections and volume. She definitely makes this series a must listen for me.
I finally took the plunge with Mark Lawrence with Red Sister back in February and this is now the 5th Mark Lawrence book I've read this year. It's the first I got on release day, and won't be the last. In fact I'm r ...more
Grey Sister might as well be the most well-written book I've read in my life.
It's been two years since Nona Grey killed Raymel Tascis in the Corridor. Now she's back in the Convent of Sweet Mercy and the Mystic Class, training to join one of the four orders: Holy, Grey, Red, or Mystic Sister. But when an Inquisition arrives, Nona has trouble trying to hide two secrets that could get her expelled: A forbidden search of the stolen shipheart, and a demon that she's carrying under her skin.
I'm not sure if my review will be impartial. Probably, it won't.
I've been waiting to read Grey Sister for a year. Deadly nuns from Sweet Mercy Convent are formidable and Mark's writing is immersive enough to shut down my analytical mind and simply enjoy the story. I like to deconstruct and analyze. I don't feel any need to do so while reading Book of Ancestor series.
Grey Sister picks up shortly after the events pictured in the first novel. Nona and her friends are older and they undergo advance ...more
This is mostly a review of the author and a bit less of the book. Mild spoilers ahead (mora about feel than about plot).
As a disclaimer, I'll say that I hate "school books". I don't like Harry Potter style books because they visit the same items and resolve them in the same way. The bully, the evil teacher, the love interest, the mentor teacher, etc... You could swap the names of the characters and it wouldn't change much.
Also, english isn't my primary language (and not even my fourth) so please ...more
REVIEW TO COME LATER!
Behind its walls, the Convent of Sweet Mercy has trained young girls to hone their skills for centuries. In Mystic Class, Novice Nona Grey has begun to learn the secrets of the universe. But so often even the deepest truths just make our choices harder. Before she leaves the convent, Nona must choose which order to dedicate herself to—and whether her path will lead to a life of prayer and service or one of the blade and the fist.
All that stands between her and these choices are the pride of a t ...more
This is the second book in the series, and I was very keen to get my hands on it after having read the first one...so much so, that I picked up the audiobook which is out in the UK earlier than the physical book.
This once again follows the life of Nona Grey, the main protagonist from book #1. We pick up her story about 2 years after the ending of book one and we see her still as part of the deadly Nunnery and we follow her training and the way she has changed since events of book 1. She now has ...more
