Night Falls on the Republic: Revealing Jay Kristoff’s Darkdawn

Mia Corvere, escaped slave and infamous assassin, is on the run…

We’re excited to share the cover of Darkdawn, the epic conclusion of the Nevernight Chronicle from author Jay Kristoff. Check out the full cover by artist Jason Chan below!

From author Jay Kristoff:

It’s always incredible to work with an artist as talented as Jason Chan, but this is easily my favorite of all his covers. We usually bounce around a few ideas in the planning stages, but with this one, he knew exactly where to take it and knocked it out of the park first draft. It’s pure badass.

Darkdawn publishes September 2019 with St. Martin’s Press. From the catalog copy:

The greatest games in Godsgrave’s history have ended with the most audacious murders in the history of the Itreyan Republic.

Mia Corvere, gladiatii, escaped slave and infamous assassin, is on the run. Pursued by Blades of the Red Church and soldiers of the Luminatii legion, she may never escape the City of Bridges and Bones alive. Her mentor Mercurio is now in the clutches of her enemies. Her own family wishes her dead. And her nemesis, Consul Julius Scaeva, stands but a breath from total dominance over the Republic.

But beneath the city, a dark secret awaits. Together with her lover Ashlinn, brother Jonnen and a mysterious benefactor returned from beyond the veil of death, she must undertake a perilous journey across the Republic, seeking the final answer to the riddle of her life. Truedark approaches. Night is falling on the Republic for perhaps the final time.

Can Mia survive in a world where even daylight must die?
