Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine, and is a fun way to share upcoming books that we’re excited about with other bloggers and readers.
I’m so happy this cover was just revealed, because I’ve had it on my Goodreads TBR since last July! I’m a HUGE Jay Kristoff fan, and I’m so curious to see how he’s going to top himself, after the amazing Lotus War series (and I have no doubt that he will):
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.
Nevernight (The Nevernight Chronicle #1) by Jay Kristoff releases in August 2016 from Thomas Dunne Books. First of all, I adore this cover! And there was never a question that I WOULDN’T read a book by Jay Kristoff. August seems so far away, right?
Let me know if you’re waiting on Nevernight as well!
