The wait is over! After two months ago I’ve admired the cover artwork for the US edition of Jay Kristoff’s “Godsgrave” now I am able to bask in the beauty of the UK/AUS one, due to be published by Harper Voyager. I already said that the amazing “Nevernight”, the first novel in Jay Kristoff’s series “The Nevernight Chronicles”, benefitted from two wonderful covers and, as it was expected, the same goes for the second novel, “Godsgrave”. Of course, again, I find myself hard pressed to choose between the two editions since my bookshelves are already overcrowded, but I am still thrilled to see this detailed and gorgeous new cover made by Kerby Rosanes. “Godsgrave” will be out on September.
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.
