Every time I’ve sat down to write this review, I find that I can’t. I can’t get the words out to describe how this book made me feel. In fact, my initial reaction was:
mmm. A month later, that’s the best I got. But other reviewer have done a FABULOUS job of describing what we are all feeling so I wanted to share some of the reviews that resonated with me.
And – by the way – this is great on audio.
And this concludes my review. I am dead, I am still speechless, and yet I hug the book every day.What have you done to me, Jay!?
Either way, to recap and reciprocate the points I mentioned in Nevernight’s review, Godsgrave had even more witty banters. more blood. more pain. lots of angst. plentiful twists. the suspense could give you a clean kill, and even more traumatic than its prequel.
Please excuse my colourful language…..But to quote our dear little Mia:What the “shit cock twat fucking fuckitall”, man!?Mister Kristoff, you are a cruel, brilliant man.
See, just lots of swearing and FEELS. But don’t take our words for it (or the more than 1,000 five star reviews)…Get your own copy STAT.
A ruthless young assassin continues her journey for revenge in this new epic fantasy from New York Times bestselling author Jay Kristoff.
Assassin Mia Corvere has found her place among the Blades of Our Lady of Blessed Murder, but many in the Red Church ministry think she’s far from earned it. Plying her bloody trade in a backwater of the Republic, she’s no closer to ending Consul Scaeva and Cardinal Duomo, or avenging her familia. And after a deadly confrontation with an old enemy, Mia begins to suspect the motives of the Red Church itself.
When it’s announced that Scaeva and Duomo will be making a rare public appearance at the conclusion of the grand games in Godsgrave, Mia defies the Church and sells herself to a gladiatorial collegium for a chance to finally end them. 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 within the collegium walls, and the body count rises, Mia will be forced to choose between loyalty and revenge, and uncover a secret that could change the very face of her world.
Set in the world of Nevernight, which Publishers Weekly called “absorbing in its complexity and bold in its bloodiness,” Godsgrave will continue to thrill and satisfy fantasy fans everywhere.
