"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week's WoW selection is...
Author: Jay Kristoff
Series: The Nevernight Chronicles, book #1
Publisher: Thomas Dunne Books
Publication Date: August 9, 2016
The first in a new fantasy series.
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 wanders a city built from the bones of a dead god, hunted by the Senate and its thugs. But her gift for speaking with the shadows leads her to the hearth of a retired killer, and a future she never imagined.
Now, 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.
I've never met a Jay Kristoff book I didn't love. Or one of his covers that I didn't immediately covet. But there is no doubt in my mind that this is going to be my new favorite of his solo projects. All I needed to read was assassins, and I was sold. And, of course, there's revenge because, duh, those two tend to go hand-in-hand. I'm hoping for one awesome fight scene after another. I just know it's going to be epic. And if you think about it, August isn't all that far away. ;0)
