Publisher's Summary

Nevernight is the first in an epic new fantasy series from New York Times best-selling author Jay Kristoff.
In a land where three suns almost never set, a fledgling killer joins a school of assassins, seeking vengeance against the powers who destroyed her family.
Daughter of an executed traitor, Mia Corvere is barely able to escape her father's failed rebellion with her life. Alone and friendless, she hides in a city built from the bones of a dead god, hunted by the Senate and her father's former comrades. But her gift for speaking with the shadows leads her to the door of a retired killer and a future she never imagined.
Now, 16-year-old Mia is apprenticed to the deadliest flock of assassins in the entire Republic - the Red Church. Treachery and trials await her within the Church's halls, and to fail is to die. But if she survives to initiation, Mia will be inducted among the chosen of the Lady of Blessed Murder and be one step closer to the only thing she desires: revenge.

Slow off the gun...

This book started off like a slug moving through quick sand. Am author must capture my attention in the first two chapters. If I get to Chapter Three and I am:

1) lost on what's happening or
2) bored to sleep

then you've lost me as a reader. Yes I understand that there may be some amazing stories out there that don't really get started until chapter 6 or 10... but those books won't be read by me. I need instant engagement. It doesn't have to be action packed just INTERESTING!

This book is written like an enormous poem. Beautiful descriptions. But when I want poetry I buy about about that. When I buy a book about an Assassin then I expect not to listen to poetry. It has some heavy Shakespeare type language. Beautiful but deadly in its boredom.
