Publisher's Summary

A ruthless young assassin continues her journey for revenge in this new epic fantasy from New York Times best-selling author Jay Kristoff.

Conquer your fear, conquer the world.

Mia Corvere, destroyer of empires, has found her place among the Blades of Our Lady of Blessed Murder, but many in the Red Church ministry do not believe she has earned it.

Her position is precarious, and she's still no closer to exacting revenge for the brutal death of her family. But after a deadly confrontation with an old enemy, Mia begins to suspect the motives of the Red Church itself.

When it is announced that Consul Scaeva and Cardinal Duomo will be making a rare public appearance at the conclusion of the grand games in Godsgrave, Mia defies the Church and sells herself into slavery for a chance to fulfil the promise she made on the day she lost everything.

Upon the sands of the arena, Mia finds new allies, bitter rivals, and more questions about her strange affinity for the shadows. But as conspiracies unfold, secrets are revealed and the body count rises within the collegium walls, Mia will be forced to choose between her loyalties and her revenge.

"Come for the vengeful assassins, stay for the fear-drinking shadowcats. Godsgrave is a stylish, fast-paced and welcome return to the world of Nevernight." (Peter Newman)

Violently good

I loved this book. Sometimes the violence made me cringe a bit, but Holter Graham is such a brilliant narrator that he sweeps you up in the fight. Can’t wait for the next book.

Mr. K... I love/hate you

The bloody beauty. That is this series ... and also the main character's nickname, but still. This book (and its firstborn sibling) are both beautifully written and bloody. I love them.

The world that JK has woven here is a place I never wish to leave. Even if, at the end of this series, we see no more of Mia, I would very much like a few more books from this world (please and thank you, Mr. K)

As for why I love/hate our dear author? Well, you will just have to read it and find out for yourself.

The only thing I would recommend to you is purchasing a copy of the paperback as well so you can look at the beautiful cartography within.

entertaining but with some problems

okay so I don't really review often but I have to with this book. whilst the book is pretty entertaining I can't help but be irritated by one major problem, and that is that the majority of the gladiatorial parts of the book are quite obviously ripped off from the Spartacus TV series. the task master with his whip, the champion gladiator disliking the main hero, his affair with the dominus, the expression that the hired help uses when talking to the dominus and many more, it's not even hidden, it's glaringly obvious. My only other problems with this book is with the narrator, whilst on the whole he is quite good, he often seems to forget who's voice he is doing and often Mia speaks with a man's gravelly voice. He also occassionly puts weird pauses mid sentence that can complete throw you out of your immersion. my final flaw is that he really needs to move slightly further away from his microphone when recording because you can hear every moist mouth smack and his overly loud swallowing, after a while it starts to grate and makes it hard to pay attention to what's being said. With these exceptions, on the whole it's still a fairly enjoyable book with the ups and downs you expect after the first one and had a solid ending that makes you look forward to the next installment. Not as good as the first book but worth listening to just to get through to what will hopefully be a good final book

Awe inspiring

This series obeys none of the rules of books. Nothing can be taken for granted, nothing assumed. Just sit back and hang on for the duration. And prepare to swear a lot as Kristoff carelessly mangles your heart.

Just keeps getting better

By the Lady of Blessed Murder that was one heck of a thrill ride! Nevernight was just a hair's breadth from being 5 star read for me even though I loved it. Godsgrave however was a definite 5 star read. Darker, grittier and featuring more unpredictable twists and turns that will leave you more emotionally drained than the first book. The narration was great and easy to follow. I am now simultaneously aching for and dreading the conclusion of this trilogy.

Amazing!

This book! This book was utterly amazing! The twist and turns that took place, the questions, the answers all wrapped up in a perfect puzzle just waiting to come together!

It was more than I expected and I devoured this in two days unable to stop listening (on audible).

The story itself beautiful yet littered with the harsh reality of this world! I need book 3 right now!

A surprisingly enjoyable sequel

This is an outstanding sequel to the first book.

I genuinely thought I wouldn't enjoy the book, however it was riveting and compelling. Admittedly there were sections that were less enticing. Overall the feel remained true to the first book.

I enjoyed the character development, and whilst I didn't agree with the character actions I did find that the actions were true to character.

It was also satisfying to watch the word building and learn more of the dark.

I read the first book, so coming to terms with the reader took a little while. By the end I felt he fit the book well.

It's nice to listen to a book with a realistic female protagonist. She makes no apologies for being broken.

Great tale that moves along at a cracking pace.

Really enjoyable story, easy to listen to and simple to follow. i spend a great deal of time driving and use audio books to help chew up the hours. This book was the perfect balance for that task, a lot of action, easy to pick up where you are at with the story afrer you put it down for a few days.

Ending was great

The middle section of the book was a bit slow and not very rewarding, there were so many weird loose ends that I didn't understand but they all came together perfectly at the end. Awesome ending, a little bit of commitment to stay till the end will be very rewarding
