GODSGRAVE cover reveal!

Hello droogs!

The day has come, the hour is here! At last, I get to reveal the cover for GODSGRAVE, the second novel in the NEVERNIGHT CHRONICLE.

Like always, I’ll be giving away some booty (no, not that kind), so read on after the links!

First, the jacket copy:

A ruthless young assassin continues her journey for revenge in this new epic fantasy from New York Times bestselling author Jay Kristoff.

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.

Gladiators! Betrayal! Lashings of tastefully written smut! And yes, footnotes!

Second, the loot!

This contest is open internationally. It will run until March 31.

You can win a signed copy of Nevernight (your choice of cover), along with a signed audiobook of ILLUMINAE and GEMINA, just by tweeting, insta’ing or FBing something close to the following – pretty much just include the #godsgrave hashtag and link, so I can see you doing it:

New series deets (drumroll please…)

Hello droogs,

You might remember late last year I announced I’d sold a new fantasy trilogy to the awesome folks at St Martin’s Press/Thomas Dunne Books. Well, I’ve been slaving like a tall, caffeine-fueled grinder monkey (minus the cute jacket and little hat) in between working on ILLUMINAE and ILLUMINAE 2, and at last, I can announce some details!

First, title!

Titles for me are one of the the hardest thing about writing a book. Summing up 160,000 words in a single line is like trying to find a single piece of hay in a mountain of particularly rusty, tetanus-encrusted needles, but at last, I found one I lurrrve in the pants. So, without further dribbling, I give thee . . .

Nevernight

So this new series is set in a world that’s part of a trinary star system, and having three suns constantly wheeling across the sky means the land only gets actual, legit nighttime once every three years. Which means my heroine’s ability to control darkness isn’t all that useful, but hells, grrl, you’re in a Kristoff novel – your life isn’t supposed to be easy.

So, Nevernight. Thoughts?

Here’s the synopsis:

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, 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.

SO, elevator pitch is something like “Lies of Locke Lamora meets Harry Potter.” If you’re into the whole elevator pitch thang. 😛

The series will begin in Spring/Summer 2016. I hope you’re as excited as I am!
