Nyx had already been to hell. One prayer more or less wouldn’t make any difference…

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.

Praise for Kameron Hurley

God’s War
“Inventive, challenging, tough as nails—just like its hard-hitting heroine. Recommended.”—Joe Abercrombie

“Kameron Hurley’s a brave, unflinching, truly original writer with a unique vision . . . burns right through your brain and your heart.”—Jeff VanderMeer, author of Finch

“Hurley’s world-building is phenomenal… (she) smoothly handles tricky themes such as race, class, religion, and gender without sacrificing action.”—Publishers Weekly

“One of the most thought-provoking debuts I’ve read so far this year.”—Locus

“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.” —io9

“Especially enjoyable for its ethnically diverse cast and freewheeling remixes of traditional gender roles.”—Tor.com

“A fast-paced book with a lot of action and smart character moments, mixed with cynical battlefield philosophy. I highly recommend it.”—Strange Horizons

“Ferociously imaginative—with an emphasis on ferocious. . . . smart, dark, visceral and wonderfully, hectically entertaining.”—Lauren Beukes, author of Zoo City

“Edge-of-the-seat action set within a strange and alien world that’s the mutant child of Frank Herbert and Roger Zelazny.”—David J. Williams, author of The Mirrored Heavens
