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, a sixteen year old Mia is apprenticed to the deadliest flock of assassins in the entire Republic--the Red Church. Treachery and trials await her with 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 one step closer to the only thing she desires. Revenge.… (mais)

So far it is not too my liking this writing style.
especially the * put it in the story especially page 15 which would just fit next to it.
I'll try to see if I can get used to it or if will fray my patience with it before completing the book.

To much typography (*†‡) for me that links to the end of the page explaining some detail which should be explained by the character herself and not at the end of a page...

Nope audio is even more boring than the book. I give up with this series.

Probably a 3.5 or 3.75, but I rounded up. Like many others, I found the backstory (in italics) to seriously detract from the story and world building. But, I am happy I trudged through. Mia Corvere is an acolyte in a school training assassins. Her motivation is to kill those responsible for hanging her father, and imprisoning her mother and baby brother. However, she is not a stone cold killer like her fellow acolytes. There is lots of gore and butchery in this book, and while it is about young adults, I would not classify it as YA. I liked the ending, but some of the trials and tribulations were a bit over the top. I hope the next book reveals more about Mia's shadow (Mr. Kindly) and her ability to call the dark, because there was too much left unexplained. ( )

Just wow. I adored this. To be such an unfaltering badass and still care for the people she loved. Mia Corvere is one of my favourite characters ever. And the fact that she didn't go in being amazing at everything and still had to go through even more training was rather refreshing. I'm getting over the books where the MC has every single skill honed to perfection and they've trained for about two months. Obviously there was the one skill she excelled at but that gives the balance I so loved about this book.

And the actual schooling was one of my favourite sections. A school for assassins. I love these assassin stories. I know I shouldn't, but I compare it to the Assassin's Heart by Sarah Ahiers. Both revolve around assassins and their following of a Dark Mother, a lot of religion talk surrounds both. While I only gave Assassin's Heart two stars, Jay kristoff did this sooooo well. He just explored the themes and the actual backstory of the religion, the assassins, the country with the use of his footnotes. I must say they did grow a little tedious at times and I glossed over a couple, but to be able to have the backstory and not have our main plot drag on because he'd included all these extra details that weren't necessarily detrimental to know what was going on was such a great thing.

Now, the other characters. Oh the characters. They were amazing. I even shed a tear. And I don't cry over books. Very, very rarely. I think the last one was My Sister's Keeper (I know right). Even some of the antagonists I loved. So many characters in here are morally grey which makes the story all the more interesting.

I cannot wait for the next book. I need it immediately. I'm trash for this I tell you. TRASH ( )

This is exactly the sort of book I love. Dark, gritty and otherworldly. I loved Mia so damn much from the beginning. I NEED the next book now.

I wish I could do a more detailed review, but honestly if I started talking about the book I don't know that I'd be able to stop... ( )
