Godblind by Anna Stephens
Published by Talos on June 20th 2017
For fans of Joe Abercrombie, Scott Lynch, and Mark Lawrence comes a brutal grimdark fantasy debut of dark gods and violent warriors.
The Mireces worship the bloodthirsty Red Gods. Exiled from Rilpor a thousand years ago, and left to suffer a harsh life in the cold mountains, a new Mireces king now plots an invasion of Rilpor’s thriving cities and fertile earth.
Dom Templeson is a Watcher, a civilian warrior guarding Rilpor’s border. He is also the most powerful seer in generations, plagued with visions and prophecies. His people are devoted followers of the god of light and life, but Dom harbors deep secrets, which threaten to be exposed when Rillirin, an escaped Mireces slave, stumbles broken and bleeding into his village.
Meanwhile, more and more of Rilpor’s most powerful figures are turning to the dark rituals and bloody sacrifices of the Red Gods, including the prince, who plots to wrest the throne from his dying father in the heart of the kingdom. Can Rillirin, with her inside knowledge of the Red Gods and her shocking ties to the Mireces King, help Rilpor win the coming war?

I’m embarrassingly susceptible to a Scott Lynch comp title! Rillirin sounds like an awesome character so I’m definitely intrigued.

Hello! There’s a possibility I’m stalking any mentions of my novel…. apologies, I’ve been assured it’s not as weird as it probably seems.
Anyway, I’m loving hearing that people are excited by the cover and looking forward to it when it comes out. I’d love any feedback you guys have – feel free to hit me up on Twitter @AnnaSmithWrites or my website – http://www.anna-stephens.com.
