A major improvement to the first book. Fastpaced and impossible to put down. All I can say is thank the goddess I have the third book coming my way because that was a hell of a cliffhanger! ( )
  _Marcia_94_ | Sep 21, 2021 |
I read Nevernight almost an year ago and absolutely fell in love. I would have usually decided to pick up the sequel right away, but knowing that Godsgrave ends with a massive cliffhanger and the finale wouldn’t be out for quite a while made me very skeptical to pick it up. So, after all this time I’m finally here. I’ve done it folks. I finished Godsgrave and I’m glad I waited to read this till I had Darkdawn in my hands.

It didn’t take me very long this time around to get used to the author’s writing style but it’s still not always easy to follow. I also found there to be a lot of descriptions that weren’t exactly necessary to the story. But the pacing was mostly consistent, with a gradual buildup of tension and the last few chapters had me on the edge of my seat. I thought the gladiatii fight sequences were very well written, creating a lot of tense and thrilling moments. Because the story has shifted from training to actual fighting and takes place among slave fighters, the brutality and violence and gore in this installment is much worse than the first book. There are also many revelations that took me by surprise but the ones at the end definitely take the cake for blowing my mind. And even if I had initially planned to take a break before reading Darkdawn, I don’t know if it’s possible now.

Mia is still the badass protagonist I have come to love and it was nice to get to back to her story. Her goal is still the same, get revenge for the deaths of her family and every task she accomplishes for the Red Church is just another step in that direction. But when she is faced some very horrific truths, she decides to take matters into her own hands and become a gladiatii. But it’s when she becomes a slave and gets to know the other fighters that she realizes the brutal truth about the slave trade, and how it forms the basis for the prosperity of the Itreyan republic. I liked how the author used her experience as a slave to let her introspect her own life, wonder if she would have grown up to be as cruel as the other slave holders if her family was alive, and also feel conflicted about protecting the other slaves around her at the expense of her revenge. For all the coldness she displays and prioritizes her endgame above all, she struggles about sacrificing others as a stepping stone for her ambition and this little compassionate side of her was what I appreciated the most.

There is a very passionate sapphic romance in this book and while it’s amazing that Mia is able to find someone whom she wants to trust atleast a little, it wasn’t almost till the end that I was convinced about her loyalty. So, it took me quite a bit of time to actually enjoy their romance. We also meet a whole host of other new characters who evoked a lot of sympathy because of the brutal circumstances under which they came to be slaves, and it was very interesting to see Mia interact with them. Mister Kindly and Eclipse are of course her constant companions, and while some of their bickering was fun, I can’t say that I understood all of their conversations. Mercurio only shows up for a little bit but his relationship with Mia and how they feel about each other was definitely one of the best parts of the book for me.

Finally, I just wanna say that this sequel was fun, thrilling, thought provoking and quite brutal but ultimately, exactly what I would have wanted from it. I felt revolted at times while extremely anxious at others and it’s this range of feelings that are evoked in us that makes this such a well written series. If you have already read and loved Nevernight, I obviously don’t need to tell you to pick up this one. However if haven’t read this series but love a bloody and dark story featuring a badass female assassin and lots of stabbing, you should definitely check it out. I’m much more excited to read Darkdawn now and can’t wait to finally know how it all ends. ( )

Kristoff writes another good fantasy yarn, as Mia Corvere continues to seek retribution for the murder of her father and disappearance of her mother and baby brother. Mia's services as an assassin have caught the attention of a sponsor, and off she goes to kill a small underworld boss and recover a map. This proves troublesome as she is thwarted by an old nemesis. Continuing her mission, she becomes a competitor (gladiatii) in death games and becomes friendly with her teammates, one of whom served her father and provides revelations. Her two spirit friends (cat and wolf) are funny. The italicized backstories are distracting, and footnotes in a fiction book are annoying. ( )

More on Chill and read

"Nevernight", gentlefriends, was a true love at first read. "Godsgrave" is a hell lot more! Have I told you how much I like Jay Kristoff's writing style? Have I ever told you how much I love epic fantasy? Have you by now understood that after Brandon Sanderson I have another high fantasy favorite author? Tolkien is beyond competition, if you've been wandering. I'm in love and head over heels with The Nevernight Chronicles and if you still haven't picked up this trilogy yet, please do so as soon as you can. Like, yesterday! It goes without saying that I've already started "Darkdawn" and I love that one even more, if that's even possible!

CONQUER

YOUR FEAR

CONQUER

THE WORLD
Ruthless Assassin Mia Corvere is now serving as Blade of Our Lady of Blessed Murder, even though she has not exactly earned her place at the Mountain of the Red Church and this is something that many in the Red Church will not easily accept, first and foremost the Red Church Ministry. She is however at service and still on her parallel purpose and life goal of murdering Consul Scaeva and Cardinal Duomo to revenge her familia. So when word comes out that they will both make a public appearance at the finale of a grand gladiator game at Godsgrave, Mia knows she has to be there that day. As a gladiator. The winner of the games.
To make it to the arena, Mia thinks of the most impossible plan ever. She needs to sell herself to a gladiator's legion that will be in the Godsgrave arena that day. Her plan doesn't work exactly as she expected but she does become part of a gladiatorial collegium that is aiming to get to the magnificent event. She trains among them as a gladiator, she makes new friends and finds a camaraderie she never expected to value. Despite all odds, she has the help of an old friend-enemy she didn't expect to lay eyes upon. Together they do their best to get Mia to the sands of the Godsgrave arena, while Mia starts to pick the strands and pieces that make up the puzzle of what the Red Church's motivation may be.
In this second installment of the series, we find a Mia that still doesn't know much about her nature and is still trying to find out more. So when she meets another Darkin and she feels that hunger inside her she doesn't lose time, but tries to see if he has something to teach her, something to share with her. Alas, gentlefriends, that Darkin wants nothing to do with the Dark. He is a true believer of the all mighty Aa. More confused than before Mia doesn't know what to make out of him, but she tries to make the best out of this whole situation she's put herself in. Even when a shadow darker than dark, a creature that looks like death itself, saves her life and tells her that her revenge is blinding her, she still has no idea what that might mean. What it means to be the Black Mother's chosen one. Nobody ever explained it to her.
Secrets come to surface as the body count rises and the blood spills from every corner. What was Mia trained to to as an acolyte of the Red Church, what she has been doing for all that faithful serving time, what she trained as a gladiator and what she is determined to do will not stop until she finishes what she started. Only then will she be free to say that she has succeed.
Be aware, readers, this is not a young adult series, in case you haven't noticed in the first installment. This one has so much blood, an adult could not easily take. Though the fighting scenes are marvelous and Mia Corvere is by far the most bad-ass female main character you have encountered till now.
If all that has made you want to read the series, go and grab yourself the whole trilogy at once, as you won't be able to stop at the first one only. It took a lot will and effort not to devour all three of them at once! The fact that when I read Nevernight, the other two books were 600 kilometers away played a significant role I'd say... ( )
