Waiting on Wednesday #52: Nevernight by Jay Kristoff August 3, 2016


Waiting on Wednesday” is a weekly event hosted by Jill at the Breaking The Spine. It showcases upcoming releases we’re anticipating!

My pick of the week is:


Nevernight (The Nevernight Chronicle #1)

By: Jay Kristoff

Coming: 9 August 2016

Publisher: Thomas Dunne Books


The first in a new fantasy series from the New York Times bestselling author.

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, Mia is apprenticed to the deadliest flock of assassins in the entire Republic—the Red Church. If she bests her fellow students in contests of steel, poison and the subtle arts, she’ll be inducted among the Blades of the Lady of Blessed Murder, and one step closer to the vengeance she desires. But a killer is loose within the Church’s halls, the bloody secrets of Mia’s past return to haunt her, and a plot to bring down the entire congregation is unfolding in the shadows she so loves.

Will she even survive to initiation, let alone have her revenge?

Why I’m excited:

I haven’t read anything by Jay Kristoff yet, but this sounds incredibly intriguing and I’m excited to check it out.

Why I need you to be excited:

It’s always exciting to start a new series!

    I can’t wait for this one either! I really loved his collab with Amie Kaufman that was the incredible ILLUMINAE, and this one should be really good too. Great pick 😀

  2. Ooh, I read an ARC of this book, and I can vouch that this book was super awesome! It was badass and sexy and bloody at the same time! I hope you love this book as much as I did! 🙂

      I still haven’t read Illuminae much to my best friend’s chagrin! She even sent me an extra ARC she had haha. I’m waiting til a bit closer to Gemina to read it now.
