A SHATTERED EMPIRE
The mad Shgun Yoritomo has been assassinated by the Stormdancer Yukiko, and the threat of civil war looms over the Shima Imperium. The Lotus Guild conspires to renew the nations broken dynasty and crush the growing rebellion simultaneously by endorsing a new Shgun who desires nothing more than to see Yukiko dead.
A DARK LEGACY
Yukiko and the mighty thunder tiger Buruu have been cast in the role of heroes by the Kag rebellion. But Yukiko herself is blinded by rage over her fathers death, and her ability to hear the thoughts of beasts is swelling beyond her power to control. Along with Buruu, Yukikos anchor is Kin, the rebel Guildsman who helped her escape from Yoritomos clutches. But Kin has his own secrets, and is haunted by visions of a future hed rather die than see realized.
A GATHERING STORM
Kag assassins lurk within the Shguns palace, plotting to end the new dynasty before it begins. A waif from Kigens gutters begins a friendship that could undo the entire empire. A new enemy gathers its strength, readying to push the fracturing Shima imperium into a war it cannot hope to survive. And across raging oceans, amongst islands of black glass, Yukiko and Buruu will face foes no katana or talon can defeat.
The ghosts of a blood-stained past., Arashitoras are supposed to be extinct. So when Yukiko and her warrior father Masaru are sent to capture one for the Shgun, they fear that their lives are over everyone knows what happens to those who fail the Lord of the Shima Isles. But the mission proves less impossible and more deadly than anyone expects. Soon Yukiko finds herself stranded: a young woman alone in her country's last wilderness, with only a furious, crippled arashitora for company. Although she can hear his thoughts, and saved his life, all she knows for certain is he'd rather see her dead than help her. Yet trapped together in the forest, Yukiko and the beast soon discover a bond that neither of them expected.
Meanwhile, the country around them verges on collapse. A toxic fuel is choking the land, the machine-powered Lotus Guild is publicly burning those they deem Impure, and the Shgun cares for nothing but his own dominion. Authority has always made Yukiko, but her world changes when she meets Kin, a young man with secrets, and the rebel Kag cabal. She learns the horrifying extent of the Shgun's crimes, both against her country and her family.
Returning to the city, Yukiko is determined to make the Shgun pay but what can one girl and a flightless arashitora do against the might of an empire?, A ruthless young assassin continues her journey for revenge in this new epic fantasy from New York Times bestselling author Jay Kristoff.
Mia Corvere has found her place among the Blades of Our Lady of Blessed Murder, but many in the Red Church hierarchy think shes far from earned it. Plying her bloody trade in a backwater of the Republic, shes no closer to ending the men who destroyed her familia; in fact, shes told directly that Consul Scaeva is off limits. But after a deadly confrontation with an old enemy, Mia's suspicions about the Red Churchs true motives begin to grow.
When its announced that Scaeva 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 the man who ended her world. 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 love 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., Your blood-red skies are filled with smoke. Your bleach-white histories with lies. You walk sleeping. Wake senseless. Breathing deep of toxic blooms and forgetting all that has gone before.
But I remember.
I remember when two brothers waged bloody war over the right to sit in their fathers empty chair. I remember when orphaned twins faced each other across a field of crimson and steel, the fate of the Shima Shgunate hanging in the poisoned sky between them.
I remember when a blind boy stood before a court of storms and talons, armed only with a thin sword and a muttered prophecy and a desperate dream of saving the world.
I remember when the skies above Shima were not red, but blue. Filled with thunder tigers.
I remember when they left you.
And I remember why.
Let me tell you, monkey-child.
