Publisher's Summary

Nevernight is the first in an epic new fantasy series from New York Times best-selling 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, 16-year-old Mia is apprenticed to the deadliest flock of assassins in the entire Republic - the Red Church. Treachery and trials await her within 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 be one step closer to the only thing she desires: revenge.

Unexpectedly Brilliant Book

The book starts with us watching the pivotal event in the life of a 10 year old girl. I found it a little confusing at the early chapters when we slipped from periods when the girl was ten and then fourteen and then sixteen and back again.

The development of intriguing characters, strong writing with an almost prose strength of language in some parts of the book was much more than I had expected. There is a fair amount of action and emotional input in the powerful writing. I must say that in the later end of the story there is a scene inside a prison and I actually shed a tear, not something I often do when reading.

It is a book I could recommend as I thoroughly enjoyed the story and cannot wait for book two.

Surprisingly Good Tale...

Wasn't expecting much from this tbh. Especially as it was billed as a YA book. However, I'm thoroughly coverted. It's a lovely, flowing and captivating tale. However, it did take me a little bit to get used to the narrator's way of reading (he has wierd "sing song" way he phrases the words) but either I got used to it very quickly or he eased up on his peculiar reading style. Don't let that put you off though. The story starts off slowly and becomes a page turner before you know it! This books definately stands out from the sea of mediocre fantasy books out there. I was impressed with it. Definately give it a go if you are hesitating.
