Damn... it's over. I'm going to need some time to process this...

(4.5) I think the last book of the series will divide the fans. For my part I enjoyed it!

Questions are finally answered, the characters continue to grow and to bring laughter and tears.
The magic system is so interesting and original and I hope there will be more books in that universe.

Can't wait to discuss this one in details soon with everyone!

Oh, and gotta love Kristoff making fun of his own writing!

“I am a daughter of the dark between the stars,” she replied. “I am the thought that wakes the bastards of this world sweating in the nevernight. I am the vengeance of every orphaned daughter, every murdered mother, every bastard son.” Mia leaned forward and looked the man in the eye. “I am the war you cannot win.”

O’gentlefriends, Darkdawn concluded The Nevernight Chronicle trilogy on a bloody high note, and it’s not implausible for me to say that this has become my favorite book in the series.

"Don't fuck with librarians, young lady. We know the power of words."


Each installment within the series can be classified as Mia’s journey throughout her life; Nevernight as Mia’s book of birth, Godsgrave as Mia’s book of life, and Darkdawn as Mia’s book death. Don’t worry, if you’re reading this withou

I am the vengeance of every orphaned daughter, every murdered mother, every bastard son.” Mia leaned forward and looked the man in the eye. “I am the war you cannot win.”

well, gentlefriends, how devastatingly mias story finally ends.
with it ruining me very gently, and then ruining me very hard.

but each page was worth the release date being pushed back a year,
the countless tears i shed for tric,
the cunning brutality of kristoffs writing,
the longing i felt for mias revenge,
and the acceptance of knowing this is the ending i got, even if its not quite the one i wanted.

and so finally, as i close the cover, this story

Unpopular opinion time.

I have never been less into a relationship than I was in this book. Ashlinn Jarnheim you know what you did and this reader can never forgive you. Therefor for most of this book I teetered between boredom and impatience to pick up the pace and get to where we are going.

“This is what you’ve made of us both. Mere pieces in a game of gods.”

Okay, let me tell you what’s the deal with Darkdawn.
Three chapters in and I already got a mindfuck.

I know, I know, I thought that was impossible too, but apparently, I was very wrong. It took Jay Kristoff three bloody chapters to convince my brain to stop wo

“I am a daughter of the dark between the stars. I am the thought that wakes the bastards of this world sweating in the nevernight. I am the vengeance of every orphaned daughter, every murdered mother, every bastard son. I am the war you cannot win.”

Revenge is a dish best served with death, copious amounts of it dealt out by a merciless hand. And we all knew this would end in blood. It had to. Mia has been working towards her bloody goals for a long time and for the first time they are within

this is one of those books where i didn't start crying until i finished the epilogue and closed the book. the ending was a tiny bit muddled with the action, but other than that, i have zero complaints. i'm gonna miss mia and her triumphantness and mister kindly :c

“Fear has its uses,” he replied. “Fear is what keeps the dark from devouring you. Fear is what stops you joining a game you cannot hope to win.”

🌟 So people saw my 3 stars rating on GR and were wondering and O, friends, it is time to give you all the answer and let me remind you of a few things, my rating for books 1 and 2 was 5 stars (book 2 felt more like a 4 but I can be generous sometimes). No one was

When all is blood, blood is all

And when one of your favourite series reaches its inevitable end, all is bittersweet. Goodbye, Mia Corvere. Thanks for the anarchy.

so. darkdawn. the final book in my favorite series. the long awaited death of mis corvere. how do i review a book this important to me? i cant put my feelings into words, but for the sake of this arc i'll try.

i have to say, this entire series has an imprint in my soul. back in 2017, when i read nevernight for the first time, i fell in love. with the world, with mister kindly, with mia, with the unapologetic brutality, heart and life mia corvere has. i've always said how i feel like this series w

You never miss your shadow until you’re lost in the dark.

So I don’t even know where to start this review as I’m just so sad that my journey with Mia has ended. I feel like I have been punched in the gut and now I don’t know what to do as the series has ended. But it ended spectacularly and now I am just sitting here contemplating the end of the series.

In this book things are coming to the great finale. Mia makes her own discoveries and old and new characters from the books come together f

I literally had black, messy, eyeliner tears running down my face by the end of this. I can’t believe I must say goodbye. Tears from the abyss?

This series holds a piece of my heart, forever
( just forever?
forever and ever.
)

This book both ripped my heart out & filled me with joy, made me cry & made me laugh... aaaand tore my heart to shreds.

I suppose that all good things must come to an end, eventually, gentlefriends.

THAT DOES NOT MEAN THAT I HAVE TO BE OKAY WITH IT! 😭

“This is who I am. I'm not a hero. I'm a vengeful, selfish bitch. And I've never pretended otherwise. If you wanted a saviour, perhaps you should've picked a girl who believes this world is worth saving.”

Actual rating: 3.5 stars

In this review I will intentionally not go into the course of the plot, as I personally find it nicer to read a book without a precise idea. So you won't find a summary of the individual parts here, only my opinion in the overall picture.
