The ABC book challenge.

Here we go again! I missed this for two weeks as I kind of lost of blog motivation (again). But I have come to realise that I don’t have to be the most perfectly consistent blogger, to be a blogger.
Sometimes just getting content out there, is an achievement in itself.

I saw this post on Jacquie’s blog ‘Rattle The Stars‘ – she’s one of my fave bloggers so definitely go and check her blog out!

A review: Godsgrave – Jay Kristoff

One of the best things about book subscription boxes, along with the truly beautiful swag, is of course, the surprise book you get with it.
So when I ordered a ‘Game of Thrones’ themed box from The Best Damn Book Box, back in July ’16, I would never have expected discovering one of my favourite reads of that year, let alone a book that became one of my all-time favourites.
Godsgrave is the sequel to that fateful book; Nevernight by Jay Kristoff.

GG-JKAssassin 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.
