Description

From New York Times best-selling author Jay Kristoff comes a dangerous new fantasy world and a heroine edged in darkness.

Mia Corvere is only 10 years old when she is given her first lesson in death.

Destined to destroy empires, the child raised in shadows made a promise on the day she lost everything: to avenge herself on those that shattered her world.

But the chance to strike against such powerful enemies will be fleeting, and Mia must become a weapon without equal. Before she seeks vengeance, she must seek training among the infamous assassins of the Red Church of Itreya.

Inside the Church's halls, Mia must prove herself against the deadliest of opponents and survive the tutelage of murderers, liars and daemons at the heart of a murder cult.

The Church is no ordinary school. But Mia is no ordinary student.

Commentaires

"A brain-churning, gore-splattered monster of a book." ( Daily Mail)
"With a delicate balance of the ancient and the magical, this tense and brutal tale is unflinching, thrilling and satisfying." ( Publishers Weekly)
"Joins lyrical high fantasy, Pratchett-like humour and unflinching descriptions of violence.... Something special." ( SciFi Now)

Rather gore filled

More blood and gore than I would usually keep reading but the story was gripping and the narration very good. I have just downloaded the next volume.

The best

Utterly delightful trilogy by a master story teller. Someone told me it was Harry Potter with proper LGBT representation but it’s so much more. It’s immersive, enthralling and utterly addictive. The narrator is ridiculously good. Easily the best narrator I have ever heard and my audible library stands at 450 books.

Awesome!

-contains spoilers- An amazing book filled with LOADS of adventure and steamy romance scenes and not so much real romance? I love the character and relationship building that goes on! I hate how Tric dies though I don’t feel that his character was worth such a small death! Also Cassian is meant to be the greatest darken and greatest swordsman but he dies in a heartbeat and Mia finds a way out? Also Jesamon dosent ever get revenge properly which I feel is a missed opportunity? However I LOVED this book and will continue reading the trilogy as I have become quite invested in the characters! Oh and a warning if you read this DO NOT read any spoilers or look up the characters as it RUINS some of the plot twists!

A hungry story that eats its reader

It took some time for me to get used to the narrator, but this book is brilliant and the narrator actually suits the story. I loved this book, great for a mature audience

A Fun, intense listen. Worth the credit for sure.

Mia is a character that you are going to learn to love. She is thrust into the life of darkness surrounded by the light and has to make some really big choices. The world building is well layered, with interesting history adding depth to the story and adding context to the situations. The characters are complex, complicated and constantly growing with the story. There are some aspects which don't pull together quite as neatly as i would like but all in all a great, fun read. Oh, the narrator is pretty good too, making me laugh out loud at one point and nearly jump out of my skin in another!

Grim dark with character voice

Character voice is amazing in this book, and it really is the driving force that makes me recommend it. The narrator, is funny. People call this book edgy, but I whole heartedly disagree. Maybe it is because the over saturation of the term, but this book isn't edgy by any stretch of imagination if we go by the literal meaning of the word. So, don't be off put by it. It does feel info dump heavy, however. If you aren't alright with those, you might feel the first few chapters grueling. The voice of the book is amazing, but male characters voices is where it falls apart; males do sound samey, but it is not a biggy. Female voices shine.

A bloody, good time.

This is a fun fantasy book. the narrator is visceral and often darkly funny. the characters are very likeable (or hateable when it comes to the villlains) and the world is imaginative and fun. Kristof goes into many gory details and while it could be excessive in another book, it fits perfectly with the story being told. The performance is also great. it's full of energy and definitely captures the tone of the book well.

Good? Well...

... not quite the right word. This book is full of evil and dark. Often very bloody, but in the end also calming. And the narrator? A master of his trade, I would call him.
