This week I am waiting on
Darkdawn (The Nevernight Chronicles, #3) by Jay Kristoff
Publication Date: September 4th, 2018
A ruthless young assassin’s journey for revenge comes to an end in the conclusion of this epic fantasy trilogy.
The Nevernight Chronicle is a complex fantasy series about Mia Corvere, a kick-butt, flawed heroine who trains as an assassin as part of her mission for personal revenge. Her tale takes place in the immersive world of Godsgrave which, although based on ancient Rome and Venice, is imaginative with many original details provided by a beloved snarky narrator.
In Darkdawn, the Republic of Itreya is in chaos. Mia has assassinated Cardinal Duomo and rumors of Consul Scaeva’s death ripple through the street of Godsgrave like wildfire. But buried beneath those same streets, deep in the ancient city’s bones, lies a secret that will change the Republic forever.
Mia and her brother Jonnen must journey through the depths of the ancient metropolis. Their quest will take them through the Godsgrave underdark, back to the library of the Quiet Mountain and the poisoned blades of Mia’s old mentors, and at last the fabled Crown of the Moon. There, Mia will, at last, discover the origins of the darkin, and learn the destiny that lies in store for her and her world. But with the three suns now in descent, and Truedark on the horizon, will she survive?
BADASS COVER ALERT! Seriously, this might be the best cover in the entire trilogy. I’m sure you’re all tired of me saying this, but I’ve still not read Godsgrave, so I’ve skimmed the synopsis of this book. I will say that this book looks darker than ever. I can’t wait to see how everything comes together in what I’m sure will be a thrilling conclusion.
What’s your most anticipated book?
