Description

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.

Truly outstanding - a top 10 read

What made the experience of listening to Nevernight the most enjoyable?

Good narrator; unique narrative style

What other book might you compare Nevernight to and why?

Name of the Wind, but with assassins

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No. Absorbing, but may be better in segments, as the content and style can be rich.

Any additional comments?

Highly recommended. Book One of a trilogy (the others aren't out yet), but it wraps up enough - no need to wait.

Just try it....

I bought this book to kill time until another book was released and I'm sooooo glad I did. I was a little put off by the cadence and slightly odd tone of the narrator but the story was great! It contains just enough the popular fantasy elements (romance, revenge, grit, magic, mystery) to keep the story engaging. It's definitely a book meant only for adults.

I liked it more than I thought I would

Nevernight was one of those books that take you by surprise. It had good ratings, so I thought, it should prove entertaining, at least. But I found it much more than entertaining. It was thoughtful, seductive, mysterious, and funny in its prose. Mia is a strong and resilient character. I immediately liked her zeal for getting what she wants. There is a love interest, but it isn't all consuming. Sexual tension exists between Mia and Trig, but it is not distracting. Mia merely sees him for who he is and both loves and hates it. It's a friendship of convenience at first, then morphs into something different.

The story constantly moves and builds then comes to a climax at the end. There is resolution (no cliff hanger) but you feel compelled to move on. I really like the way Jay Kristoff writes. He has a refreshing style (for which I cannot articulate). It's simply.....poetic. Eager for Godsgrave.

Loved this!

It was a little slow in the beginning, but so worth it. I loved the premise, and it had all the good stuff - reluctant heroes, a little romance, power hungry politicos, zealots, monsters and shadow assassins. I am looking forward to the next book.

Starts out in a lovely manner...

I started out loving this... but it goes from poem to Harry Potter: Assassin Edition to confused Murder Mystery/Adventure.

It feels as if the author wanted to write a beautiful epitaph carved in blood and pain, but then decided that it was lacking substance and changed formats several times over.

In addition, not only were certain sections rushed together removing any sense of immersion, but I was dismayed that although the performance was done passably well, the narrator is not female. Maybe later we'll find out that the reason for the narrator, but this felt out of place.

Given the maps and stylisation choices chosen by the author, should one choose to read this they're better off with the actual text.

Really great listen!~

I loved it. Love love loved.

The setting, the sort of Rome/Venice-feeling city of Godsgrave, and then the dark, cavernous Red Church was really well described and thus easy for me to imagine. This world of three suns which barely ever set was really well thought out and fantastically written. The characters were well done and I really cheered for Mia. There's something to be said about cheering for a little girl to get her revenge on those who have hurt her and her family. The use of flashbacks to tell Mia's story was well done. I loved her more and more as we went. I love a foul mouthed rogue, and oh daughters... Mia has a mouth on her. She is the queen of sass. Things like "I appear to have misplaced the f***s I give for what you think" and the like which, once again, made me latch right on to this book and hug it and squeeze it. Good, sweary, sasstacular humour is win. A sassy shadow daemon for Mia to match wits with made it even better. So many hearts .>).

Finally, I must say that the last 1/3 of this book nearly broke me. Gods above and below, the emotional roller coaster that was. I very, very nearly had to give this one up, not because it was bad, but because I got way, way too invested in these characters, and their backstories and trials and tribulations just... ruined my feels. Everything after that dropped a bomb on them. Demolished them. I haven't been this affected by a book emotionally since Red Rising. The combination of the story itself and Holter Graham's presentation of it had me in tears (at work again FML with added Awkward Workplace Sobbing >.>).

It's just fantastic. 10 million stars out of 5.

Überraschend gut

Ich habe mir eigentlich nicht zu viel versprochen als ich den Titel unter meinen Empfehlungen sah, aber als ich mich ein bisschen reingehört habe war ich gleich ein Fan. Super Charaktere und eine fantasievolle "coming-of-age" Story in einem Setting das an Hogwarts für Assassinen erinnert. Besonders den Humor muss man hier herausstellen. Das Buch ist lustig ohne jemals zu komisch zu werden. Ich erwarte Teil Zwei in Hochspannung! Absoluter Geheimtipp.

Absolutely Amazing!

There are only 2 options for this book, either you love it or you hate it. Although I have to admit that if you're in the second group I will consider you crazy, I respect your opinion but you're still crazy ;)

Great worldbuilding, awesome characters, great magic system, some funny banter, and assassins what do you want more?

I never read or listened to a book twice in a row, but this one I loved so much that right after reading it I bought the audiobook here too and finished both in 2 days that should give you a hint.

If you're into dark fantasy stuff you definitely want to give nevernight a try. Can't wait for the next book.

PS: There is a LOT of killing and bloody stuff going on, cursing in every colour and a few very detailed sexscenes - so if you're offended by that kind of stuff you might want to look for something else, if not - enjoy ;)

Best book ever!!!

The characters are so interesting, with so much depth displaying the best of the worst. The world is so creative and holds so many secrets to be discoverd.
The story throws the reader from one thrilling fight or secret into the next, making me shake with adrenaline.
