Sorry for the delay you guys! I really couldn't get into this one and it took me longer than usual to read it. Also, don't worry. Our lovely Ashley is working on her review for Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo. Once it is posted, we all will add our own comments onto the post since it is one that all three of us have read! In the meantime, here is my lovely review for Godsgrave by 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 she's far from earned it. Plying her bloody trade in a backwater of the Republic, she's no closer to ending the men who destroyed her familia; in fact, she's told directly that Consul Scaeva is off limits. But after a deadly confrontation with an old enemy, Mia's suspicions about the Red Church's true motives begin to grow.
*Warning for Spoilers Ahead*
Alrighty, so I could not really get into this book. I tried, and I conquered but in the end it was just an ok book. I'm not a fan of Mia and I really am not a fan of Mia x Ashlinn. I am sorry but that relationship was idiotic. And the fact that before they even got together and Mia found her again she would think of the kiss they shared? Was Tric just really bad in bed since you don't sit and think of that and I'm sorry I thought you hated her since she killed Tric and turned traitor. Like I get the fact that now the Red Church is bad and she wants them all dead, but before she thought they were at least on her side some.
There were good moments too, don't get me wrong. Any part with Mister Kindly is great and that ending with Tric is what makes me want to read the next book. I really enjoyed his character in the first and I want to see what he has turned into. I also hope to learn more about Mister Kindly. Fingers are kinnnndddaaaa crossed that Mia and Ashlinn kinda die, but hey that is just me.
There are some very nice twists and turns in this book. Her brother being alive and the knowledge of who her actual dad is since ya know.... the father she thought was her biological father wasn't interested in her mother at all and instead wanted to have his fun with Antonius (bow chicka wow wow). The whole traitor turned surprise not so traitor scheme was good. It made me really hate Mia when I thought it was real, but then BAM! nope they were alive and escaping (which is good else I'd go into book 3 like you little son of a monkey.....).
So overall, not a favorite. Would I read it again? Mmmm probably not. Would I recommend it to others? Probably not.
