Godsgrave (The Nevernight Chronicle, #2)
Assassin Mia Corvere has found her place among the Blades of Our Lady of Blessed Murder, but many in the Red Church ministry think she’s far from earned it. Plying her bloody trade in a backwater of the Republic, she’s no closer to ending Consul Scaeva and Cardinal Duomo, or avenging her familia. And after a deadly confrontation with an old enemy, Mia begins to suspect the motives of the Red Church itself.

When it’s announced that Scaeva and Duomo 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 them. 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 loyalty and revenge, and uncover a secret that could change the very face of her world.

Set in the world of Nevernight, which Publishers Weekly called “absorbing in its complexity and bold in its bloodiness,” Godsgrave will continue to thrill and satisfy fantasy fans everywhere.

OUT SEPTEMBER 5, 2017 
I really enjoyed Nevernight, the first book in this series. It included a talking shadow cat, footnotes and plenty of action. But there was some controversy about how Maori culture and people were represented. The author was called out on some misconceptions and he did not address the issues well. Despite that I'm going to continue on with the series. Authors behaving badly happens and I will continue to mention this caveat in my reviews, but I don't want to completely write him off.
What are You Anxiously Waiting On?
