Waiting on Wednesday #3: Godsgrave

 The cover for Godsgrave was revealed last week as GASSSSSPPPP. It's so pretty! Well, maybe pretty isn't the right word, but it's wonderful and matches the cover for Nevernight perfectly. I read Nevernight last year and I loved it. It was dark and alluring and unpredictable and just everything, so I can't wait to read the sequel. Plus, Jay Kristoff's been torturing us all with AMAZING snippets on twitter. I just know I'm going to love this one.


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.

  2. My daughter has been nagging me to read Nevernight, but I am just the worst. She has never steered me wrong, and I do need to diversify my reading. It's just so hard. =) Great pick as I have heard so many good things about Nevernight.

  7. I cannot WAIT for this one. I loved Nevernight with a passion and although I know many prefer the US cover, I love the Aussie / UK cover for the series. Such a brilliant Aussie author out doing wonderful things in the literacy world. Wonderful choice! <3

  8. I feel like this cover reminds me of Crown of Midnight, haha. But that's an awesome cover, so it's not necessarily a bad thing.

    I still haven't read Nevernight even though I pre-ordered it! I have heard some mixed things about it so I'd be interested to see what I think.

    I hope you like the second book!

    As for a book I'm excited about I cannot WAIT for Now I Rise by Kiersten White. And I Darken is one of my fave books and I need to know what's going to happen to my babies!
