Expected publication: August 9th 2016
Genres: Fantasy; Magic; Young Adult
In a land where three suns almost never set, a fledgling killer joins a school of assassins, seeking vengeance against the powers who destroyed her family.
Daughter of an executed traitor, Mia Corvere is barely able to escape her father’s failed rebellion with her life. Alone and friendless, she hides in a city built from the bones of a dead god, hunted by the Senate and her father’s former comrades. But her gift for speaking with the shadows leads her to the door of a retired killer, and a future she never imagined.
Now, a sixteen year old Mia is apprenticed to the deadliest flock of assassins in the entire Republic — the Red Church. Treachery and trials await her with the Church’s halls, and to fail is to die. But if she survives to initiation, Mia will be inducted among the chosen of the Lady of Blessed Murder, and one step closer to the only thing she desires.
This cover, this cover, this COVER! I love it so much. I’d be so tempted to buy it just for the cover alone, but did you read that synopsis?! Nevernight is about assassins. And vengeance. And a school for assassins! In a medieval Venice style world. Oh, and ASSASSINS! If you couldn’t already tell, I have a huge weakness for assassins. Holy freaking heck, I need this book!
What do you think of Nevernight? Thanks for stopping by, and Happy Reading!
