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)

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.

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.

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

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!

Darkly humorous fantasy

Nevernight was the best book I had read so far this year, so I was really looking forward to Godsgrave. It absolutely didn't disappoint. The premise is very similar to the first book, but the twists and turns are even sharper and more shocking. If you like your fantasy bloody and brutal, with an irreverent sense of humour, you'll love this series.

Worth the wait!

I've been waiting for a year for the second chronicle, I love the semi fast Pace, you get wrapped into never night and Mia's quest from the first chapter, if you enjoyed no.1 you will love part two.
We'll worth my monthly credit.
