Destinata a distruggere imperi, Mia Corvere ha solo dieci anni quando riceve la sua prima lezione sulla morte. Sei anni dopo, la bambina cresciuta tra le ombre si avvia a mantenere la promessa che ha fatto il giorno in cui ha perso tutto. Ma le possibilità di sconfiggere nemici così potenti sono davvero esili, e Mia è costretta a trasformarsi in un'arma implacabile. Deve mettersi alla prova tra i nemici - e gli amici - più letali, e sopravvivere alla protezione di assassini, mentitori e demoni, nel cuore stesso di una setta dedita all'omicidio. La Chiesa Rossa non è una scuola come le altre, ma neanche Mia è una studentessa come le altre. Le ombre la amano. Si nutrono della sua paura.

"The three suns hanging on a chain about his throat tried to gleam, but the clouds in the crying sky told them no." If I were to write a review in the style of this book, it would begin something like this: I turned these pieces of former tree, the midnight ink recounting a narrative tumefied by m
Allow me to pay homage to the writing style of this book. Finished the book. I sigh. Twisted my head.

Well you were right, I should have believed you. So now that this is out of the way… This. Was. Epic. Loved the world, loved the m Leggi tutto
This is a new favourite. *EDIT* Upon a re-read, definitely a favourite. O, Pale Daughter, you have my heart. *EDIT 2* Still 5 stars after my third read. LOVE.
Hmmm.. There is nothing to begin. I’ve erased my review. The only reason I loved the book before is I thought Mia was a cool, bad-ass, bloody assassin and I fell in love with Tric! I never admitted to myself that I thought most of the book was boring. So, there you have it. And if anyone can give me Leggi tutto
IT TOOK ME ALMOST A MONTH BUT I CONQUERED THIS BOOK!!!
I can’t… finish this. Just thinking about it makes my head ache. The writing is so… thick. Like every message, action, description that is meant to reach the reader through it is compressed to the point where trying to dismantle it takes too much energy. If that’s not a reason to prematurely close a bo Leggi tutto
2.5 stars. While I'm sure the worldbuilding is great, the writing style and portrayal of the main female character was too edgelord and catered by the male gaze for my tastes.
“The last thing you will ever be in this world, girl, is someone’s hero. But you will be a girl heroes fear.” I feel like this book is extremely polarizing but if you love it, you will love it completely and whole heartedly. If you love it, you won’t be able to put it down. If you love it
