Beasts Made of Night is an October release that I'm REALLY looking forward to reading! It's a debut by Tochi Onyebuchi and I found this video of him talking about what you can expect from the story on YouTube so I had to share it with you guys.
Doesn't it sound fantastic?! Here's the blurb and the gorgeous book cover for you:
Taj is the most talented of the aki, young sin-eaters indentured by the mages to slay the sin-beasts. But Taj’s livelihood comes at a terrible cost. When he kills a sin-beast, a tattoo of the beast appears on his skin while the guilt of committing the sin appears on his mind. Most aki are driven mad by the process, but 17-year-old Taj is cocky and desperate to provide for his family.
When Taj is called to eat a sin of a member of the royal family, he’s suddenly thrust into the center of a dark conspiracy to destroy Kos. Now Taj must fight to save the princess that he loves—and his own life.
