I have a love/hate relationship with Darkdawn fam! This is the third book in the Nevernight Chronciles trilogy written by Jay Kristoff. I have some issues with it, and some things that I absolutely loved about, which I discuss in the video below.
From the back of the book:
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?
New York Times and internationally bestselling author Jay Kristoff’s writing has been praised by critics and readers alike and has won many awards, including four Aurealis Awards, an ABIA, and David Gemmell Morningstar and Legend awards.
I rated it 3.75 Stars. That said, I absolutely love the Nevernight Chronicles as a trilogy and HIGHLY RECOMMEND you read all three books.
As always with my reviews the first half is completely spoiler free. Spoiler talk begins right around the 30:30 mark but it’s clearly labeled and you’ve got time to nope out if you don’t want any spoilers.
Sound off in the comments and tell me what you thought of Darkdawn and the Nevernight series!
