Expected publication: August 9th 2016

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, Mia is apprenticed to the deadliest flock of assassins in the entire Republic—the Red Church. If she bests her fellow students in contests of steel, poison and the subtle arts, she’ll be inducted among the Blades of the Lady of Blessed Murder, and one step closer to the vengeance she desires. But a killer is loose within the Church’s halls, the bloody secrets of Mia’s past return to haunt her, and a plot to bring down the entire congregation is unfolding in the shadows she so loves.

Will she even survive to initiation, let alone have her revenge?

First off, this book is not Young Adult. I don’t know why it’s marked as Young Adult on GoodReads but it’s definitely not. I don’t recommend this book for younger readers.

Anyway, this book is incredibly different from anything I’ve ever read before. The writing style is kind of weird but it’s very unique and so interesting to read. The world building is amazing and the characters are outstanding. I read this entire book in just a couple of days because I couldn’t put it down. It’s extremely entertaining and I was so absorbed in the story.

    I stopped reading this because I was confused, lol. I’m going to get back to it after I finish “The Vanishing Throne” but even just a few chapters in, I can tell the book is very dark and I agree in that it doesn’t seem very “young adult.” *shrugs*
