Nevernight is the first in an epic new fantasy series from New York Times best-selling author Jay Kristoff.
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, 16-year-old Mia is apprenticed to the deadliest flock of assassins in the entire Republic - the Red Church. Treachery and trials await her within 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 be one step closer to the only thing she desires: revenge.

I loved this book and couldn't wait to finish it.
The story follows familiar tropes in the world of assassination, gods and magic but does so in an engaging way with characters that you want to know more about. It leads you onwards but finishes the first book cleanly. I can't wait for the next one.
Good narration, voices are appealing and he handles the noted text well.
Took a chance on the reviews and cashed in this was a great story and awesome performance by the narrator a few oh really moments but well worth the few down parts to have one of the best endings I've listened too.....
"You'll be glad you read this"
Exciting from start to finish. I couldn't stop listening. Characters so full of life, described in great detail. Such a wonderful story.
"Starts out in a lovely manner..."
I started out loving this... but it goes from poem to Harry Potter: Assassin Edition to confused Murder Mystery/Adventure.
It feels as if the author wanted to write a beautiful epitaph carved in blood and pain, but then decided that it was lacking substance and changed formats several times over.
In addition, not only were certain sections rushed together removing any sense of immersion, but I was dismayed that although the performance was done passably well, the narrator is not female. Maybe later we'll find out that the reason for the narrator, but this felt out of place.
Given the maps and stylisation choices chosen by the author, should one choose to read this they're better off with the actual text.
"Could not stop listening"
I will probably get an F on one of my PhD course assignments because I could not stop listening. I commute to work 3-4 hours a day. I always listen to audiobooks but I have never had such I hard time putting one down. I hope the next in the series comes out during a semester break!
Holter Graham is one of my favorite narrators and when I saw he was narrating Nevernight, I just had to get it. It took me a little while to get into the story, but was soon hooked. If you are looking for a different audiobook experience, I highly recommend Nevernight.
haven't read a new book in a while, and this author is new to me. his story is a little confusing at first but my God it is amazing once it gets going. I am so glad I had came across it. I fully recommend reading this book, you won't be sorry.
it's original and new. it's refreshing to hear something out of the ordinary. makes you want more. really love this story!!!
"COMING OF AGE FOR KILLERS!!"
Wow, I don't think I can do this book justice with my review. Just listen and pray for book 2👍👍👍👍👍
"What a ride!!"
Great book! Beautifully written , smart, clever, imaginative!
Enjoyed the performance of the audible book-
A little slow at the beginning and still not sure if Im on the right side or the wrong one...
Great story. It does start a bit slow but picks up quickly. Performance was stupendous.
