On a ravaged, contaminated world, a centuries-old holy war rages, fought by a bloody mix of mercenaries, magicians, and conscripted soldiers. Though the origins of the war are shady and complex, there’s one thing everybody agrees on–
There’s not a chance in hell of ending it.
Nyx is a former government assassin who makes a living cutting off heads for cash. But when a dubious deal between her government and an alien gene pirate goes bad, Nyx’s ugly past makes her the top pick for a covert recovery. The head they want her to bring home could end the war–but at what price?
The world is about to find out.
“God’s War is one of the most thought-provoking debuts I’ve read so far this year.”
“Are you frustrated with Mary Sue heroines? Well, here comes God’s War to rock your face off… If you like rough, battle-scarred women who know how to regulate, you’re going to love Nyx… She makes Han Solo look like a boy scout.”
“God’s War is a violent tale set against the backdrop of a centuries-old holy war. But beyond all the blood and violence, it’s a beautifully crafted work of art that keeps astonishing you when you least expect it.”
