I got this in my last Illumicrate and for some reason put off reading it till now. I think I just wasn’t sure about it. Foolish me. This book is a right cracker.
Mia Corvere was once a pampered daughter of a wealthy and important man, now she is a creature of death and shadows.
She wants vengeance for the deaths of her family and will train in the ways of the Red Church to get there, if it doesn’t kill her.
The writing is strong and the characters are fun, from a horse called Bastard to the shadow-cat only Mia can see, they’re richly drawn and as the plot thickens and gathers tempo I found it harder and harder to put it down.
The first in a planned trilogy Nevernight is set in an alternate world, with three suns in the sky and warring gods whose squabbles are echoed by their believers.
