Cover Launch: THE BROKEN GOD by Gareth Hanrahan

With his debut novel, THE GUTTER PRAYER, Gareth Hanrahan took the fantasy world by storm, introducing a world of sorcerers and thieves, dark magic and dangerous gods.

The epic tale will continue in THE BROKEN GOD (US|UK|ANZ), the gripping third novel in the Black Iron Legacy and we’re thrilled to reveal the stunning cover below:

The Godswar has come to Guerdon, dividing the city between three occupying powers. A fragile armistice holds back the gods, but other dangerous forces seek to exert their influence. Spar Idgeson, once heir to the brotherhood of thieves has been transformed into the living stone of the new city. But his powers are failing and the criminal dragons of the Ghierdana are circling.

Meanwhile, far across the sea, Carillon Thay – once a thief, a saint, a god killer; now alone and powerless – seeks the mysterious land of Khebesh, desperate to find a cure for Spar. But what hope does she have when even the gods seek vengeance against her?

The Broken God will hit shops in May, so if you haven’t discovered the magic of The Black Iron Legacy yet there’s still time to dive in! The first two books are available in paperback, ebook and audio, read by the wonderful John Banks.
