Second novel in the brilliant new series from the bestselling author of PRINCE OF THORNS. 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.… (més)

Absolutely brilliant. I wish it were longer so I could have enjoyed it for another day. ( )

One of the things I like most about this series is that the protagonist, Nona Grey, is not the Chosen One. In fact, she's the Shield to the Chosen One, sort of a guard, with her own powers and strengths. Also, a devil, Keot.
She's about fifteen now, working her way up through the Sister's hierarchy. She has friends and a lot of enemies. We finally get to meet Sherzad, the chief villain who's also behind the rest of Nona's foes. The last third of the book was so exciting that I powered through to see what happens next. It's a bit of a conundrum as the author has also written some chapters throughout the series that show Nona as older, so I know she survives (at least until then), but his writing still manages to make me doubt that she and her friends will get out of the really bad situations they get into.
One of the things I love about Mr. Lawrence's work is how he sneaks some science and technology in as the basis to his fantasy worlds. It's somewhat unique, I think, to fantasy books. This series takes place on Abeth, a planet with a dying sun that reminds me of Darkover, the planet that's the setting of Marion Zimmer Bradley's Darkover books. I read those books a long time ago but the premise here is the same; different races have come to a planet and develop various powers as a result. Some of the same themes play out here. Oh, and did I mention that those Darkover books are some of my favs, so you can imagine how much I love this series.
And now I'm on to Holy Sister, the conclusion to this marvelous series. ( )

Every bit as good as Red Sister continuing a plot that I want more of. When's the next installment? ( )

Even better than Red Sister - loved every minute! ( )

I liked Red Sister by *Mark Lawrence*. **Grey Sister** was an appropriate second volume – It was a good-ish second part to Red Sister, but I felt it lacked a sense of cohesiveness. For a long time it just moved from one action after the other, switching to a bit heavy-handed character development from time to time. The protagonist is also too successful with most things she does, and then there's some torture/pain/loss thrown in for balance. Language felt a bit inconsistent, too: mostly very good standard storytelling (think Sanderson), then suddenly flowery.

Don't get me wrong, though: the book is lots of fun if you like action and tension, and it's not stupid action either. It's well-written, solid action-focused fantasy – no more, no less. ( )
