Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Jay Kristoff, Writer of the popular 'Lotus War' series of fantasy novels, begins a whole new series. With a very different setting.

This book runs for six hundred and forty three pages. It has an introduction. Thirty five chapters then two epilogues. And it's divided into three parts.

This is the story of Mia. A very legendary assassin.

It contains strong language and violence and adult moments, so it isn't suitable for younger readers.

It doesn't say anything on it about being a series or trilogy. But the end does leave a lot open. And does actually make it clear that there are two more volumes to come.

Which it can do, because as the introduction explains, this is Mia's story being told, by a writer, after her time. This is quite an interesting narrative device because the writer makes that clear via various footnotes. Some of which can be almost as funny as similar in Discworld books. Although some are quite long and they do come close together at times, especially early on. So sometimes it does feel like it's disrupting the narrative.

But they do even out in due course. So you do get used to it.

Mia is a girl who survived her family being betrayed and killed. Got taken in by a wise old man who taught her a lot. And now she's out to get into a legendary school for assassins.

All of which may sound familiar.

The narrative, post the introduction, does take a while to settle down. Because you have flashbacks in italics and current scenes in normal type. And in the first chapter there's little time between them. So it does take a bit to get used to things. However, it doesn't spend as much time as some might on filling in her past. But still tells you all you need to know about it.

pooled ink Reviews:

This book was very intense, violent, bloody, dark, and most intriguing. It is a story full of revenge, survival, pushing one’s limits, and perhaps even a higher calling of sorts. There is magic and mysticism. There is searing light and whispering darkness. There is cruel wealth and cunning poverty. There is endless mystery and blunt truth.

NEVERNIGHT was a solid read for sure but even so it didn’t quite capture my heart.

I must say it is very well written. I enjoyed the dual timeline writing style that switched back and forth between the present and key moments in Mia’s past that slowly revealed who she was and what she could become.

Oh, and I will emphasize that this book is a dark fantasy. It is not a romance and it is not a fairy tale. I know you’ve read plenty of books that are quite dark and edgy but even so there is a light to hold onto, usually found within the vein of romance. I’m just warning you now that that is not the case in this book. There is no love in this story. You may read this book and think you’ve found some, and indeed you may have, but this is a story about assassins and their path has no room for partners.

Overall this was a very good book and while it didn’t overwhelm me with that first-read magic it did light a little spark inside me that I’ve no doubt will grow over time. Even as I type this review I can feel my fondness for this book growing (some books have me buzzing with adoration but while it flares brightly enough for a glowing review, after a few months it has flickered and abandoned me. This book, I’d wager, has sunk its claws into me and is here to stay). I don’t know if this makes sense but, I’m captured by this book but I don’t love it.

When it comes to ebook's I am a bit of a magpie I will buy when on special order, pre order because it looks interesting, and then promptly forget about them till weeks or months later till I am scrolling through my Kindle.

such is the story here, I didn't read NeverNight till long after I purchased it, and by God what a book, not since I bought Red Rising on special offer have I been taken by such surprise by a story enthralled and carried along through its up's and downs by a Master Story Teller.
The Tale of Mia Corvere a teenage assassin with a Dark Gift, and her heroes Journey about self discovery and a quest for vengence sounded so been there done that when I read the description. I thought I knew what I was coming I am delighted to say I didn't have a clue.

I don't want to spoil so rather then discuss plot here's what stood out for me.

* The Superb use of Language from the First Chapter dealing with two different First's using the same structure and language amazing.
* Pacing exciting and fast paced even the sections about training don't bog it down.
* Avoids the Hogwarts traps just because it features a school for the Gifted doesn't mean its filled with twinkle eyed goody two shoe's. It's a school for assassin's with a religious bent with all the danger and risk that implies and filled with the kind of Dangerous and yes broken characters that you would imagine would populate such a school, both staff and student.
* The Comedy while the main story is played pretty straight the book contains foot notes supplied by the unknown narrators that serve both as a source of information and the on going comic relief quirky asides and humerous ancedotes help stop the story from becoming too dark.
