Firstly, Thanks so Much To Netgalley and Sourcebooks fire for this amazing Opportunity Secondly, i was backed up with requests on here and did not get to this book for a while. Thought it was past Published and i had forgot what it was about so when i started reading and i saw that it was long chapters i almost closed the book but i stuck with it and then when i saw there was multiple point of views i was then doubtful i would like it. ( I can take maybe Dual Point of views and then maybe another paced through) it was at times too much for me switching back and forth but the words kept me here.

School Shootings always hit me where i live and i wasn't sure if i wanted to keep reading but i did, i did love that we saw everything through many eyes and you really felt the emotion coming through. I didn't connect with any of the characters or feel anything for them but i loved Tomas and Syl's Sibling relationship and i loved Syl's and Autumns relationship.

This book is about the choices you make and the actions you did, may seem small and insignificant to you but to someone else it's a chain reaction and that somehow we are all connected in a way. I Enjoyed it, would i read it again? No but i am recommending it Didn't love it (liked it), Didn't hate it but i would have liked at least one chapter inside the main "Villains" head. The format of the story really could be better an to be honest i couldn't even remember much from the book. It wasn't memorable and i feel anyone could have written about this.

Four Crowns, Two for evoking the feels with certain aspects and two for character Dynamics

  1. Interesting... It's a shame there wasn't anything from the shooter's perspective, as that would have made things more complex and taken away the whole "pure evil" aspect.
    Great review!

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. If she bests her fellow students in contests of steel, poison and the subtle arts, she’ll be inducted among the Blades of the Lady of Blessed Murder, and one step closer to the vengeance she desires. But a killer is loose within the Church’s halls, the bloody secrets of Mia’s pas…
