Nevernight is the first in an epic new fantasy series from the New York Times bestselling author, Jay Kristoff.
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.

I loved the premise of the book and looked forward to reading it because of it, and it didn’t disappoint. I enjoyed reading Mia’s trials and wanted her to get her revenge in the end. All of the characters were enjoyable and well-written, I liked that the assassin’s league was in a church, it was a breath of fresh air. I’m curious as where Ashlinn’s story is going to go, as well as Mia’s. Overall I really enjoyed it and look forward to book 2.
