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.

Took a chance on the reviews and cashed in this was a great story and awesome performance by the narrator a few oh really moments but well worth the few down parts to have one of the best endings I've listened too.....
Holter Graham is one of my favorite narrators and when I saw he was narrating Nevernight, I just had to get it. It took me a little while to get into the story, but was soon hooked. If you are looking for a different audiobook experience, I highly recommend Nevernight.
haven't read a new book in a while, and this author is new to me. his story is a little confusing at first but my God it is amazing once it gets going. I am so glad I had came across it. I fully recommend reading this book, you won't be sorry.
I was hesitant to buy this book based on my previous experience reading Stormdancer but I was pleasantly surprised. The story held my attention and the character development was perfect. I'm looking forward to the next book in this series.
I never give out 5's there needs to be a magical symbiosis of story and narrator to provide escapism. Even rarer does a author be able to hold my attention for a full 16+ hours. Mis and her no eye companion are courageous, imperfect, and make some extremely remarkable associates that add the depth needed for a great adventure.
Can't wait for book 2
Far too quiet when the shadows speak, couldn't make out what they were saying most of the time. And the tangents at the beginning of the book that filled 3 to 15 minutes of useless information each could of been done without. I understand it's world building, but the story's flow is completely broken by them when they happen.
"Very good story in a familiar world"
I loved this book and couldn't wait to finish it.
The story follows familiar tropes in the world of assassination, gods and magic but does so in an engaging way with characters that you want to know more about. It leads you onwards but finishes the first book cleanly. I can't wait for the next one.
Good narration, voices are appealing and he handles the noted text well.
"Slow start compelling story"
Was slow and confusing to start but morphed into a brilliant book. Narrator was excellent. Can't wait for the next book.
