“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.  Every Wednesday we get to highlight a book that we’re really looking forward to.  This week: Nevernight (The Nevernight Chronicle #1) by Jay Kristoff.  Bit of a wait for this one August 2016:

Nevernight.jpgThe first in an epic new fantasy series from the New York Times bestselling author.

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.

Revenge

    Gosh this has Star Wars and Game of Thrones vibes, I think I’m in LOVE! I also liked the idea that “she hides in a city built from the bones of a dead god”… It’s just… wow. Great pick! And I’ve not read anything by this author, so it’s great to get feedback from you re their writing to top it all off. Going to have to add this to my wish list now! Thank you. 🙂

    The words “assassins guild” are all I need to be sold on this book – hook, line and sinker 🙂 It’s more than promising…
