about

The epic conclusion to the internationally bestselling Nevernight Chronicle from New York Times bestselling author Jay Kristoff.

The greatest games in Godsgrave's history have ended with the most audacious murders in the history of the Itreyan Republic.

Mia Corvere, gladiatii, escaped slave and infamous assassin, is on the run. Pursued by Blades of the Red Church and soldiers of the Luminatii legion, she may never escape the City of Bridges and Bones alive. Her mentor Mercurio is now in the clutches of her enemies. Her own family wishes her dead. And her nemesis, Consul Julius Scaeva, stands but a breath from total dominance over the Republic.

But beneath the city, a dark secret awaits. Together with her lover Ashlinn, brother Jonnen and a mysterious benefactor returned from beyond the veil of death, she must undertake a perilous journey across the Republic, seeking the final answer to the riddle of her life. Truedark approaches. Night is falling on the Republic for perhaps the final time.

Can Mia survive in a world where even daylight must die?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "She wore the night. And all the night came with her." *** REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS FROM GODSGRAVE*** I knew from the beginning that this was going to be a rough read. THE NEVERNIGHT CHRONICLES have never been a happy-go-lucky adventure. I expected an emotional roller coaster, and that was exactly what I got. And so much more. It's hard to put into words how deeply this book affected me. I'm literally warring with two parts of myself because a piece of me is weeping at how unfair it is, but the rest/majority of me knows that this truly is the right ending. Everything has come full circle in ways that I could not have imagined, and is a story that left me shaken for days. Epic is too small a word to fully describe the story and moments in this book. Mia has always been a beast in combat, but she has never been more powerful, ruthless, or deadly as she is here. The drama and farewells for all characters, both old and new, put aches in my chest. The romances and arcs and forgiveness offered in certain areas literally brought me to tears. It is a dark, dark read. This is an emotionally taxing story, but one I would never have wanted written any other way. It was also one of the most unique books I've ever read, in that it is super meta. I won't exactly say how, but suffice to say that you can almost picture Jay Kristoff in this piece. It threw me for a loop a few times, but was so on brand with his style that, combined with those beloved footnotes (and yes, I actually do love them), served as a reminder that he was with us on every step of this long, heartbreaking, jaw-dropping journey. I can understand why people would be upset about certain aspects of the book. I was right there with you for some of them. But the more I process, the more I read and think and understand, the more I know that this is the ending that suited what Jay Kristoff created. This is the horror, humour, and heartache we all loved from his work. While I cried and had my heart ripped out and will be mulling on it for days, it should say something about the quality of the author and his work that he was able to do so and give us all the RIGHT ending.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Agonizing Anticipation The first two books were fabulous. The second books cliffhanger ending has left me wanting more. Pre-ordered this one as soon as it was availible to do so. My heart sank when I got the email that there would be a 1 year delay for the release. I cannot wait to read this book, the characters are wonderful and hard to forget. Needless to say, the anticipation is killing me.

Editorial Reviews

"Kristoff effortlessly draws together multiple threads from the first two volumes and packs in plenty of wickedly sharp, beautifully choreographed, and gloriously bloody fight scenes while offering humor, heartbreak, and a few jaw-dropping surprises....A poignant and exhilarating finale to a superb fantasy series." -Publishers Weekly, starred review on Darkdawn"The stakes for our heroine feel higher than ever....Fans will love the fast-paced, epic conclusion to this dark and bloody tale." -Kirkus Reviews "Kristoff's action sequences are well done [and] humorous footnotes provide wry asides and additional info about this well-imagined realm. Readers who enjoyed the first two books will not be disappointed by this dark, addictive story." -Library Journal "Launching the Nevernight fantasy series, Kristoff (the Lotus War trilogy) creates a splendid world of corruption and violence. Kristoff portrays a world as rife with villains and treachery as the ancient Italian civilizations it echoes. Absorbing in its complexity and bold in its bloodiness, this beginning promises (and delivers) equal shares of beauty and decay." -Publishers Weekly, starred review on Nevernight"A sensuous, shades-of-moral-gray world; a compelling, passionate heroine; a high-stakes quest for revenge-this is a fantasy fans won't be able to put down."-Kirkus Reviews on Nevernight""Murder, magic, sex, and humor-the first installment in Kristoff's new fantasy series is off to a rollicking start... Kristoff has created a rich, vibrant world for readers, borrowing heavily from historical Italian political structures, which provide a base of stability and familiarity to the new creations. Footnotes accompany the story,...embellishing and further developing the world, and providing a welcome and often biting wit."-Booklist on Nevernight"The world-building is delightfully detailed, its baroque flourishes supplied by sarcastic footnotes, but we are drawn through the narrative by Mia's triple quest: to rescue her family members, to avenge her father's death and to survive her education at the church, where the ultimate test is to avoid being killed by the training." -The Daily Mail on Nevernight"Assassins, magic, strange creatures are all pluses for me. But my favorite thing about this book is the voice...I adore well-done omniscient narrators with snark and a slight bit of disdain for either the reader or the main character."-Book Riot on Nevernight"Kristoff's bold writing style...joins lyrical high fantasy with f-bombs aplenty, Pratchett-like humor and unflinching descriptions of violence."-SciFiNow on Nevernight"Harry Potter meets The Lies of Locke Lamora"-USA Today on Nevernight
