Waiting On Wednesday #41 – Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

Wednesday, August 09, 2017

is a weekly event originally hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This meme is a place that spotlights upcoming releases that we´re eagerly anticipating with pure joy. For whatever reason Jill is not blogging since August 2016 but her meme is still going on. Hope everything is ok and she will be back soon! Until then, I am joining Tressa at Wishful Endings and her meme Can´t-Wait Wednesday!



I haven´t done this in a while, since late March 2017, to be honest, and a lot of books I am waiting for are on my list now. Some of them are already out when this post will be published, so I am starting with an author who is completely new to me and his book that will come out in a bit.

Nevernight by Jay Kristoff caught my attention with its cover. The German edition (right side) will have the same one, which I really appreciate.

It will be published on August 24, 2017, by Fischer Tor as a Paperback.


I am looking forward to it already. I never read that author before and high-fantasy isn´t my usual genre, but over the past ten months I found myself reading more and more books from that corner of the book world. And here the cover made me curious. It is dark, mysterious and I heard so many great things and bad things about it, that my first impression already is: It will polarize its readers. Seems like this could become another book that you´ll either hate or love.


 

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 deadliest flock of assassins in the entire Republic – the Read 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. Revenge.



Happy reading
