Nevernight
Nevernight | Jay Kristoff
In a world where the suns almost never set, a woman gains entry to a school of infamous assassins, seeking vengeance against the powers that 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 wanders a city built from the bones of a dead god, hunted by the Senate and its thugs. But her gift for speaking with the shadows leads her to the hearth of a retired killer, and a future she never imagined. Now, Mia is apprenticed to the deadliest flock of assassins in the entire Republic-the Red Church. Deadly trials await her within the Church's halls: blades and poisons, treachery and death. If she survives to initiation, she'll be inducted among the chosen of the Lady of Blessed Murder, and be one step closer to the only thing she desires. Revenge. Nevernight will come on the heels of Kristoff's latest YA book, a collaboration with Amie Kaufman from Knopf Books for Young Readers, Illuminae. Knopf is planning a major publicity blitz and featuring Illuminae as its lead title for Fall, on sale October 20th. The marketing and publicity campaign include a multi-city USA tour in the fall, major outreach at consumer and industry events, a national paid advertising campaign, and extensive publicity outreach.

I loved the world building and all the characters. Mia is a well fleshed out awesome female lead. We have Hogwarts style school only for assassins not wizards lol! It‘s dark, it‘s brutal, it‘s bloody, it‘s vengeful and it‘s lusty!!! Huzzah! The magic systems however are bit wonky to understand just yet, but hoping that will become more defined as I go.

I really enjoyed this world and the way the author builds it. The only complaint that I have is that everything the characters say is in sarcasm and it really makes then sound like immature children. Other than that I really enjoyed the story and plan to finish the trilogy.

Another long-standing one off my TBR. This was a lot of fun! The audio was a bit difficult to get into, as the author uses a lot of repetition. I had to rewind a few times just to make sure I wasn‘t hallucinating and the app wasn‘t glitching. I‘ll probably try to read the next one though.

Thanks to all of you raving about Empire of the Vampire for making this happen finally lol

#LittensDressedInBlood #Day15 #PetSematery I‘ve chosen this book for today‘s prompt because of Mr Kindly, the murderous shadow cat pet of our MC Mia Corvere. After barely surviving the murder of her family, Mia is taken in by an ex assassin & puts herself on the path of The Red Church(assassin school!)& vengeance with Mr Kindly giving advice along the way. It may have a young MC but this is no YA, lots of blood, curses & smut. I loved it❤️

MidnightBookGirl I really enjoyed this book, I need to read the rest of the series. I always feel like Mia and Arya Stark would make a great team. 2mo

This was ok the first time I read it and it's still just ok. The world is great, the story is very interesting but I really don't get the hype. I found myself bored for a large portion of it and the footnotes being forcefully inserted into the audiobook made me lose interest pretty quick. I understand why it was done (how else do you listen to footnotes?) but I lost a lot of the story

Adulting sucks sometimes but here's something NO ONE tells you...you can buy cake whenever you want! Had a shitty week and dreading the week coming? You can take your adult money, buy something ridiculously rich in chocolate, sit on the couch, watch trash TV, listen to an #audiobook and just blissfully ignore everything for a while. There's no one to tell you no! Buy the damn cake and enjoy a bit of happy 😊

A brutal, dark fantasy with echoes of Game of Thrones, The Witcher and Shadow & Bone. Mia is a lead heroine you root for and with her daemon side-kick Mister Kindly at her side you see her start to take shape as a deadly assassin. With a full range of characters of all shapes & sizes Kristoff is carving out a brilliant world so I look forward to the rest of the series. The only quibble, the needless, distracting footnotes, stick with the story.

Pogue I am reading this right now! 4mo

It took me a few chapters to get used to the writing style, but once I did, I went on quite a ride. I loved all the annotations at the bottom of the pages and I loved Mia and Mister Kindley. The entire story was dark and thrilling, and I'm reaching for the second book.

I've never felt these words ring truer, as someone who has always done whatever possible to help my friends, I always miss the subtle attacks from behind, and the blatant ones from the front.

Never, ever let anyone walk all over you.

I love all the foot notes, but this book really dragged on about the schooling of the assassins. I would have preferred for the author to cut out about 200 pages of that and focus on advancing the plot. Mia‘s family was brutally murdered and she swore revenge. She pledged herself to the church of the Dark Mother, but will she be able to survive the schooling? 3/5 stars, I will read the next one and hope it‘s more streamlined.

It‘s odd because I did like this but I didn‘t like it as much or for the reasons I thought I would. I like Kristoff‘s dark gritty writing. I got a little confused and will probably have to reread before I move onto book 2. Another #bookspinbingo marked off!

Book 114 - audio

I picked this one entirely for the cover art.

When the story started and I was not so sure about my choice. It's very graphic. Sex, violence, death, language, all there, all graphic.

But I was intrigued by the mix of death and the irreverent narrator and I stuck with it.

About half way through I decided that if a female Harry Potter went to Pratchett's Assasins Guild instead of Hogwarts, this would be her story.

I read this non-stop for 2 days and finished it. I liked it. It was a little predictable, but it didn't take away from my enjoyment, because there was a lot going on and still unsolved mysteries. I skipped the sex scenes, because they're all like teens. There was one plot thing that I found odd, a character died, and I'm very sure she had the thing to save them at hand? The surgeries were weird, but the book didn't make it 'the mc is special'.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

It may have taken me months to get through this one, but it was a wild ride the entire time. This is definitely not a book for younger readers and some teens as it is one of the bloodiest books I‘ve ever read and has some rather explicit scenes. Mia is a badass female lead and the twists will have you on edge until the very end. I loved Kristoff‘s snarky humor and commentary and overall this book was a fun and wicked read.

This book was so many things. With brutal battles and characters having to claw their way out & through the most fucked up things just to prove themselves, the humor of the narrator and main character, Mia, it all just makes you want to dive into the book so you don‘t miss a thing. I loved it so much.

When the narrator tells you (on page one) that this story will not have a happy ending, you need to listen up. This book is DARK, and the dark stuff just keeps coming. It's also full of purple prose, so reader beware. But Mia? Oh, she's worth it, and I can't wait to jump into book two.
