Godsgrave – Jay Kristoff
Mia Corvere has found her place among the Blades of Our Lady of Blessed Murder, but many in the Red Church hierarchy think she’s far from earned it. Plying her bloody trade in a backwater of the Republic, she’s no closer to ending the men who destroyed her familia; in fact, she’s told directly that Consul Scaeva is off limits. But after a deadly confrontation with an old enemy, Mia suspicions about the Red Church’s true motives begin to grow.
When it’s announced that Scaeva will be making a rare public appearance at the conclusion of the grand games in Godsgrave, Mia defies the Church and sells herself to a gladiatorial collegium for a chance to finally end him. Upon the sands of the arena, Mia finds new allies, bitter rivals, and more questions about her strange affinity for the shadows. But as conspiracies unfold within the collegium walls, and the body count rises, Mia will be forced to choose between love and revenge, and uncover a secret that could change the very face of her world.
Why I Can’t Wait:
I haven’t even read Nevernight yet but it’s on my TBR for next month. I can’t wait for this book because I’ve heard so many amazing reviews of this series. The ARC has been dominating my Twitter feed for weeks now and it’s caused such excitement that I’m eager to read it. I’ve even pre-ordered the numbered, limited edition from Goldsboro Books (which sold out within hours), as I’m so sure I’ll love it.
Release Date: 07 September 2017
