Nevernight is the first in an epic new fantasy series from the New York Times bestselling author, Jay Kristoff. 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, a sixteen year old Mia is apprenticed to the deadliest flock of assassins in the entire Republic — the Red Church. Treachery and trials await her with the Church’s halls, and to fail is to die. But if she survives to initiation, Mia will be inducted among the chosen of the Lady of Blessed Murder, and one step closer to the only thing she desires. Revenge.

The second thrilling installment of the award-winning Nevernight Chronicle, from New York Times bestselling author Jay Kristoff. In a land where three suns almost never set, a ruthless assassin continues her quest for vengeance against the powers who destroyed her family. 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. When it’s 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 him. 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.

Mia est devenue la plus douée des assassins. Pour accomplir sa vengeance, elle est prête à tout, même à l'impossible. Le retour de la saga Nevernight par le génial Jay Kristoff. Jay Kristoff poursuit son incroyable saga Nevernight avec ce deuxième tome : Sépulcra. Mia est fait maintenant partie des Lames de Notre-Dame du Saint Meurtre au sein de L'Église rouge. Mais beaucoup pensent qu'elle n'a pas mérité ce titre. Elle commet des assassinats au nom de l'organisation, mais au fond d'elle son objectif est resté le même : se venger des responsables de l'assassinat de sa famille. Après une confrontation avec un mystérieux ennemi, Mia commence à douter des vraies motivations de L'Église rouge. Lorsqu'il est annoncé que Scaeva et Duomo vont faire une apparition aux Grands Jeux de Sépulcra, la cité des morts, Mia choisit de défier l'Église rouge et se fait délibérément enlever afin d'être vendue à une troupe de gladiateurs. Par ce moyen et en gagnant les Grands Jeux, elle pourra s'approcher au plus près des assassins de sa famille et enfin accomplir sa vengeance. Mais tout ne va pas se passer comme prévu... Jay Kristoff prend le contrepied du tome 1 de Nevernight avec Sépulcra. Après un parcours initiatique au sein de l'Église rouge, il est temps pour Mia de poursuivre sa vengeance contre ceux qui ont détruit sa famille. Le tome 2 de cette superbe saga est plein d'action, de révélations sur le passé de Mia et l'occasion de découvrir de nouveaux personnages lors des Grands Jeux de la ville. L'auteur a mis un point d'orgue à montrer une nouvelle facette de la jeune femme. Tueuse d'élite, elle ne va pas hésiter à défier ses mentors et mettre en doute leurs réelles motivations. Sépulcra fait la part belle aux combats dans des duels de gladiateurs ahurissants. Mia n'a qu'un seul but : gagner les Grands Jeux et se rapprocher des assassins de sa famille lors de la remise du trophée. Mais ce n'est pas sans compter sur des adversaires du passé qui vont ressurgir et des visites inattendues. Nerveux, violent, politiquement incorrect, le style de Jay Kristoff fait mouche une nouvelle fois et entraine le lecteur dans une aventure inédite qui va connecter les fantômes du passé au récit. La fin risque d'ailleurs d'en choquer plus d'un. Nevernight prouve une nouvelle fois sa grande qualité et son souffle épique dans un univers fantasy néo renaissance qui émerveille et subjugue le lecteur.

From the coauthor of the New York Times bestselling Illuminae Files comes the first book in a new series that's part Romeo and Juliet, part Terminator, and all adrenaline. On an island junkyard beneath a sky that glows with radiation, a deadly secret lies buried in the scrap. Seventeen-year-old Eve isn't looking for trouble--she's too busy looking over her shoulder. The robot gladiator she spent months building has been reduced to a smoking wreck, she's on the local gangster's wanted list, and the only thing keeping her grandpa alive is the money she just lost to the bookies. Worst of all, she's discovered she can somehow destroy machines with the power of her mind, and a bunch of puritanical fanatics are building a coffin her size because of it. If she's ever had a worse day, Eve can't remember it. The problem is, Eve has had a worse day--one that lingers in her nightmares and the cybernetic implant where her memories used to be. Her discovery of a handsome android named Ezekiel--called a "Lifelike" because they resemble humans--will bring her world crashing down and make her question whether her entire life is a lie. With her best friend Lemon Fresh and her robotic sidekick Cricket in tow, Eve will trek across deserts of glass, battle unkillable bots, and infiltrate towering megacities to save the ones she loves...and learn the truth about the bloody secrets of her past.

From bestselling author Jay Kristoff comes the second installment in the LIFEL1K3 trilogy--hailed by Marie Lu as "a breathless, action-packed exploration of what humanity really means." In the wake of a climactic battle in the ruined city of Babel, two former best friends suddenly find themselves on opposite sides of the same quest. Eve is torn between the memories of the girl she was, and the synthetic she's discovered herself to be. Together with her lifelike "siblings," Eve sets out to find the real Ana Monrova, whose DNA is the key to building an army of lifelikes. Meanwhile, Eve's best friend, Lemon, is coming to terms with a power that she has long denied--and that others want to harness as a weapon. When she meets a strange boy named Grimm, he offers to lead her out of the horror-ridden landscape and to an enclave of other abnorms like herself. There, Lemon quickly finds a sense of belonging--and perhaps even love--among the other genetic deviates. But all is not what it seems, and with enemies and friends, heroes and villains wearing interchangeable faces, Lemon, too, will join the race to locate Ana Monrova before her former best friend can get to her.

From the bestselling co-author of the Illuminae Files comes the thrilling finale in the LIFEL1K3 trilogy--hailed by Marie Lu as "a breathless, action-packed exploration of what humanity really means." Best friends have become enemies. Lovers have become strangers. And deciding whose side you're on could be the difference between life and death. For Eve and Lemon, discovering the truth about themselves--and each other--was too much for their friendship to take. But with the country on the brink of a new world war--this time between the BioMaas swarm at CityHive and Daedalus's army at Megopolis, loyalties will be pushed to the brink, unlikely alliances will form and with them, betrayals. But the threat doesn't stop there, because the lifelikes are determined to access the program that will set every robot free, a task requiring both Eve and Ana, the girl she was created to replace. In the end, violent clashes and heartbreaking choices reveal the true heroes . . . and they may not be who you think they are.
