    Inhaltsangabe

    It's not until you're broken that you find your sharpest edge.

    A brilliant new series from the best-selling author of Prince of Thorns.

    'I was born for killing - the gods made me to ruin.'

    At the Convent of Sweet Mercy, young girls are raised to be killers. In a few the old bloods show, gifting talents rarely seen since the tribes beached their ships on Abeth. Sweet Mercy hones its novices' skills to deadly effect: it takes 10 years to educate a Red Sister in the ways of blade and fist.

    But even the mistresses of sword and shadow don't truly understand what they have purchased when Nona Grey is brought to their halls as a bloodstained child of eight, falsely accused of murder - guilty of worse.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "Dark, passionate, tense, with a female hero anyone could relate to - I was utterly fascinated! This is no pretty, flowery tale, but one of vastly different people struggling to survive when a hostile government comes to power." ( New York Times best-selling author Tamora Pierce)
    "This is a book very distinct from everything that came before; what it has in common though is a narrative that pulls no punches, and characters that are beautifully, brokenly, repellently, cleverly human." ( Sci-Fi and Fantasy Reviews)
    "I had never thought it was possible to find a greater character than the Emperor Jorg Ancrath. I had never even slightly considered that there might be a fantasy world out there toppling that of Τhe Final Empire, and most definitely, I had never thought that I could love a book more than The Night Angel. But here we are." ( BookNest)
    "Any other author is going to have to smack the ball way, way out of the park to top this read." ( Parmenion Books)

    Solide storyline mit einem starken Finishing

    Insgesamt solide, erinnert ein bisschen an Anthony Ryan’s Blood Song Trilogie. Ich finde es allerdings sehr schwierig sich auf die Sprecherin einzulassen. Eher monoton im Vergleich zu anderen Sprechern. Das macht es manchmal etwas schwierig konzentriert bei der Story zu bleiben.

    Good story, great reading

    Loved how the different characters were given different accents and voices. Made them very recognizable.
    The story was gripping, though a bit predictable for me and slightly too gory. Though I do like that the main character is not just black and white but acts in a bit of a grey zone - even if her motives are anything but grey.

    An OK book but....

    It's not a book you would give a good score to if you are working or doing something else while listening to it.
    The writer has a bad habit of jumping back and forth in time while telling the story.
    One chapter the character is years before the current date, next it's in the future and then back to current time and all three books are the same, it's a sign of very bad editing and writers that have a problem with telling a story from A to B but writes different chapters and then have someone else edit them to a full book.
    I've read the books before I bought the audio book, so it's not bad but this is really a set of book that you want to be able to focus on while listening,
    The jumping back and forth really breaks the rythm of the story, what could have been a great book became just a good one...

    Loved it

    please ignore the reviews that try to make the analogy of this being "a more adult HP".
    it's not really.

    The performance only got 4 stars because there are a few scenes where you can slightly hear swallowing or page turning. it's nothing major really but it did pull me out for a few seconds whenever it happaned.

    The story gets 4 stars for feeling more like one and a half books, than just one. it does drag a little in some parts, but it would come down to likes and preferences if it bothers you.

    I loved the main charakter and how much she develops over the story. everything being written in first person makes her feel the most alive.
    the less prelevant development of the co-cast feels natural, because of the warped perspective of the main character and her inherent inability to understand people.
