A desert pit fighter plots to overthrow the immortal kings who terrorize her homeland in this first thrilling adventure in a blood- and sand-fueled epic fantasy series.

“Breathtaking.” —Robin Hobb, New York Times–bestselling author of Fool’s Assassin

Sharakhai, the great city of the desert, center of commerce and culture, has been ruled from time immemorial by twelve kings—cruel, ruthless, powerful, and immortal. With their army of Silver Spears, their elite company of Blade Maidens and their holy defenders, the terrifying asirim, the Kings uphold their positions as undisputed, invincible lords of the desert. There is no hope of freedom for any under their rule.

Or so it seems, until Çeda, a brave young woman from the west end slums, defies the Kings’ laws by going outside on the holy night of Beht Zha’ir. What she learns that night sets her on a path that winds through both the terrible truths of the Kings’ mysterious history and the hidden riddles of her own heritage. Together, these secrets could finally break the iron grip of the Kings’ power . . . if the nigh-omnipotent Kings don’t find her first.

Lovecraft-type horror. “Alleys of Terror” traps an adventuress and her two-fisted rival in a web of crime and sensuality. “Witch of Snakebit Creek” shifts to a deadly murder conspiracy in the Texas backcountry. Plus two essays about Howard’s work for the Spicy magazine and the related Weird Menace market.

Fred Blosser is a recognized authority on Robert E. Howard and author of three preceding works of fiction powered by swords, six-guns, and sorcery: “Curse of the Crimson Talons,” “Swords of Havoc,” and “Swords of Gobi.”

Proving once again that Coyle is a master of military fiction, God’s Children is as timeless as war itself.
