Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

"The world-building is delightfully detailed, its baroque flourishes supplied by sarcastic footnotes, but we are drawn through the narrative by Mia’s triple quest: to rescue her family members, to avenge her father’s death and to survive her education at the church, where the ultimate test is to avoid being killed by the training. The Daily Mail on Nevernight
"Murder, magic, sex, and humor—the first installment in Kristoff’s new fantasy series is off to a rollicking start... Kristoff has created a rich, vibrant world for readers, borrowing heavily from historical Italian political structures, which provide a base of stability and familiarity to the new creations. Footnotes accompany the story,...embellishing and further developing the world, and providing a welcome and often biting wit. Booklist on Nevernight
Assassins, magic, strange creatures are all pluses for me. But my favorite thing about this book is the voice...I adore well-done omniscient narrators with snark and a slight bit of disdain for either the reader or the main character. Book Riot on Nevernight
Kristoff's bold writing style...joins lyrical high fantasy with f-bombs aplenty, Pratchett-like humor and unflinching descriptions of violence. SciFiNow on Nevernight
Harry Potter meets The Lies of Locke Lamora USA Today on Nevernight
A sensuous, shades-of-moral-gray world; a compelling, passionate heroine; a high-stakes quest for revenge—this is a fantasy fans won't be able to put down. Kirkus Reviews on Nevernight
Launching the Nevernight fantasy series, Kristoff (the Lotus War trilogy) creates a splendid world of corruption and violence. Kristoff portrays a world as rife with villains and treachery as the ancient Italian civilizations it echoes. Absorbing in its complexity and bold in its bloodiness, this beginning promises (and delivers) equal shares of beauty and decay. Publishers Weekly, starred review on Nevernight
Kristoff effortlessly draws together multiple threads from the first two volumes and packs in plenty of wickedly sharp, beautifully choreographed, and gloriously bloody fight scenes while offering humor, heartbreak, and a few jaw-dropping surprises....A poignant and exhilarating finale to a superb fantasy series. Publishers Weekly, starred review on Darkdawn
The USA Today bestseller!
The stakes for our heroine feel higher than ever....Fans will love the fast-paced, epic conclusion to this dark and bloody tale. Kirkus Reviews
The twists and turns start early in this volume, and readers expecting wry humor and high body counts will not be disappointed....Kristoff's characters are fully formed and jump off the page. The world building, borrowing its structure from Italian political history, remains as intricate and fascinating as it was in Nevernight (2016). Booklist
Kristoff's action sequences are well done [and] humorous footnotes provide wry asides and additional info about this well-imagined realm. Readers who enjoyed the first two books will not be disappointed by this dark, addictive story. Library Journal
“A splendid world of corruption and violence.” Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Nevernight
