From New York Times bestselling author, Jay Kristoff, comes a
dangerous new fantasy world and a heroine edged in darkness.
Destined to destroy empires, Mia Corvere is only ten years old when
she is given her first lesson in death. Six years later, the child
raised in shadows takes her first steps towards keeping the promise
she made on the day she lost everything. But the chance to strike
against such powerful enemies will be fleeting, so if she is to
have her revenge, Mia must become a weapon without equal. She must
prove herself against the deadliest of friends and enemies, and
survive the tutelage of murderers, liars and daemons at the heart
of a murder cult. The Red Church is no ordinary school, but Mia is
no ordinary student. The shadows love her. And they drink her fear.
