There is always a danger in reading sequels to book you love. Will they be as good? Will the dreaded Second Book Syndrome strike? You never know until you give the book a try. For me, I figured there was no way Godsgrave could hold a candle to Nevernight, one of my favourite books of the year. The school narrative was gone, Mia has become a full-fledged Blade, and all her friends were dead or traitors (don’t you just hate it when that happens?). But once again, I was completely, utterly wrong. Godsgrave is just as good as Nevernight, despite a huge shift in the story.
