Review

Praise for Nevernight:

‘A brain-churning, gore-splattered monster of a book’
Daily Mail

‘With a delicate balance of the ancient and the magical, this tense and brutal tale is unflinching, thrilling and satisfying’
Publishers Weekly

‘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

‘Joins lyrical high fantasy, Pratchett-like humour and unflinching descriptions of violence . . . something special’ SciFi Now

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.

Although the first chapters can be quite jarring to read with foot notes names etc( you learn to love them) , please keep reading this book is beautiful, dark, vivid and full of wonderful twists. Dont expect a happy ending, but do expect trials, deception and an ever growing spider web of plot. Looking forward to the next book.

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.

I went into Nevernight expecting to love it and was left ultimately disappointed in so many ways.

First of all was the style in which it was written. The early chapters were so heavy with purple prose that I found it almost impossible to get into the story. The narrative felt over padded, virtually without substance beneath lengthy and meaningless descriptions. Things were not helped by the numerous footnotes. Reading the eBook edition, these quickly became tedious as I found myself constantly clicking links to read the anecdotes at the back of the book. A few of these were amusing but most were just unnecessary world building, expanding corners of the universe that had no bearing on the story.

While the prose did grow a little more streamlined once Mia had reached the Red Church, it then became clear that the novel was not very well structured. Mia's time at the academy became a whorl of lessons and it quickly became clear that the overall plot was actually incredibly weak. Things didn't really speed up until around the 80% mark. Until then it was just characterised by one-upmanship, flash backs of Mia's childhood and sex. Oh my, sex...

The sex scenes were one of the things that I found least appealing about this story. For starters, they felt incredibly graphic for a YA novel. Everything has its place and I really don't expect to read sequences that border on the pornographic in a novel that otherwise seems to be aimed at teenagers. They were also very much written from a male perspective.
