Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Surprisingly Good Tale..."

    Wasn't expecting much from this tbh. Especially as it was billed as a YA book. However, I'm thoroughly coverted. It's a lovely, flowing and captivating tale. However, it did take me a little bit to get used to the narrator's way of reading (he has wierd "sing song" way he phrases the words) but either I got used to it very quickly or he eased up on his peculiar reading style. Don't let that put you off though. The story starts off slowly and becomes a page turner before you know it! This books definately stands out from the sea of mediocre fantasy books out there. I was impressed with it. Definately give it a go if you are hesitating.

    "Very good story in a familiar world"

    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.

    "Unexpectedly Brilliant Book"

    The book starts with us watching the pivotal event in the life of a 10 year old girl. I found it a little confusing at the early chapters when we slipped from periods when the girl was ten and then fourteen and then sixteen and back again.

    The development of intriguing characters, strong writing with an almost prose strength of language in some parts of the book was much more than I had expected. There is a fair amount of action and emotional input in the powerful writing. I must say that in the later end of the story there is a scene inside a prison and I actually shed a tear, not something I often do when reading.

    It is a book I could recommend as I thoroughly enjoyed the story and cannot wait for book two.

    Mother of three, Nana of one. Self-employed from home so Audible is invaluable, particularly when walking the dog.

    "Promising But....."

    To begin with, I'm probably not the target audience, not being a 'Young Adult', so feel free to ignore this.
    The story was promising, like dropping Harry Potter into Game of Thrones.
    I liked the way it jumped around in time and didn't find that remotely confusing.
    The narrator was super, adding an edge of snark.
    The whole thing would have been great but for the prolonged sex scenes. Yawn.
    If this had been a film I would have been throwing popcorn at the screen and yelling for them to get on with the story.
    I know sex is a major thing for 'Young Adults' but having it narrated is more voyeurism than vicarious. Eeech! Also dull and uninteresting. GET ON WITH THE STORY!
    If it doesn't improve I'm returning it. Sex I can get, assassin schooling is what I need.

    "Utterly amazing!"

    This book was amazingly well written and leaving me wanting the sequel right now!! The detail that the author used is amazing and you can fully picture everything. The only complaint I would have is the characters have a little sexy scene and if your into that then go ahead but I feel as though the author could have left that out and the book would still have been amazing

    "Truly outstanding - a top 10 read"
    What made the experience of listening to Nevernight the most enjoyable?

    Good narrator; unique narrative style


    What other book might you compare Nevernight to and why?

    Name of the Wind, but with assassins


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. Absorbing, but may be better in segments, as the content and style can be rich.


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommended. Book One of a trilogy (the others aren't out yet), but it wraps up enough - no need to wait.

    "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.

    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.

    "Narrator Blues."

    I had a hard time with the narrator at first. It seemed like he was channeling an over dramatic Capt. James T Kirk, turning one sentence into 4. I either got used too it or he toned it down a bit. But it took about 1/3 of the book to get past it.
    Overall good story. I'll most likely get the second book in the trillogy.
