Synopsis: 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, a sixteen year old Mia is apprenticed to the deadliest flock of assassins in the entire Republic ― the Red Church. Treachery and trials await her with 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 one step closer to the only thing she desires.
I LOVE Jay Kristoff books. He’s also a VERY kind man. I met him a few times at Bookcon Chicago 2016. He responds so well and so kindly on Twitter (@misterkristoff).
I posted this book because it’s very different from what people mostly know him from which is his continuing Illuminae series. Gemina is due out later this year or early next, I believe. Ah! October 18th, 2016 to be exact! However, I bring you this book because it’s a much different book than that series. It’s high fantasy with a dark under tone of, as it says, REVENGE looming over head. Something that caught my attention very quickly.
I love YA and the some what romance types but I love a good revenge story as well. So if this book brings you the excited feels as it does me, please click on the book above and pre-order it as soon as you can!
