GIFnotes: Giving you the basic plot summary of an upcoming book with the help of the Graphics Interchange Format.
This week, Jay Kristoff kicks off GIFnotes with a brilliant summary of the 1st book in his new epic fanatasy series, Nevernight.
Nevernight is a story about the daughter of a failed revolutionary, seeking revenge against her father's killers:
It's set in a place kinda like Hogwarts:
If Hogwarts was built in a place similar to certain gorgeous medieval city:
And was a school where, instead of learning magic and the true value of friendship, you learn to murder the shit out of people:
While there, our heroine must become a badass with the blade:
A master of poisons:
And an expert in the more . . . erm, subtle arts:
Plus there's some political intrigue and cats made of shadows and an ancient war between the God of Light and Goddess of Night. But it's really hard to find GIFs for those.
There's an excerpt of the first chapter over at USA Today.
But yes! Assassins! Murder! Treachery! Smutty bits!
