Nevernight by Jay Kristoff Book Review

Nevernight is a wonderful read, it is a gem of a book that I would recommend to anyone and everyone (there's death and sex scenes and such so beware!)
Nevernight (The Nevernight Chronicle, #1)
Nevernight is a story told from the perspective of Mia Corvere a young tennager who lost everything at the age of ten. She was taken under the wing of an assassin called Mercurio, when she will face many challenges to get to the Red Church a school of assassins, where she will learn the arts taught such as poison class in order to perfect her skills. This is the story of girl in her journey to avenge  her family.

It took me a while to read Nevernight, it was a pretty intimidating read, first of all the annotations at the bottom. I wasn't sure how I would take it, while it did take me a couple of them to adjust to it I rapidly became addicted to them, some were funny, others informative or sometimes both.
The beginning was everything, I loved every second of getting to know Mia, her backstory and each side characters were simply divine ! (even the ones I hated)
Oh Tric my lovely, Tric ..., I won't say more but DAMN !
I loved the school of assassin's setting, the Red Church and learning more about Mr.Kindly, the art to kill someone and the world.
This fantasy world is beautifully constructed and because there is beautiful maps that I loved referring to during my read, it really helped me be totally immersed in my read and really feel like I was there due to the wonderful descriptions of the places they were and the scents that were present.
It was an addictive first book in a trilogy and thankfully I don't have to wait for the last two books as they have already come out at this time !!!

5/5 stars
