A city threatened by unimaginable horrors must trust their most hated outcast, or lose everything, in this crushing epic fantasy debut.
After ten years on the run, dodging daemons and debt, reviled magician Edrin Walker returns home to avenge the brutal murder of his friend. Lynas had uncovered a terrible secret, something that threatened to devour the entire city. He tried to warn the Arcanum, the sorcerers who rule the city. He failed. Lynas was skinned alive and Walker felt every cut. Now nothing will stop him from finding the murderer. Magi, mortals, daemons, and even the gods – Walker will burn them all if he has to. After all, it wouldn’t be the first time he’s killed a god…
Damn, that was so bloody good, dark, and grimalicious. Cameron Johnston’s epic fantasy debut book The Traitor God from his Age Of Tyranny series is so fast-paced and action-packed with magical battles, the magic on display in this book will blow your socks off.
A world full of monsters, demons, gods, shawdow cats, and big ass titans. Cameron Johnston has created a fantastic dark world for fans of grimdark or dark fantasy to get lost in, with compelling, morally grey characters with fantastic depth, amazing worldbuilding, and a plot that sucks you in from the beginning and holds you to the end.
The main protagonist, Edrin Walker, is a powerful magician, a god killer, who has been on the run for the last ten years dodging daemons and debt. When being pursued by a pack of supernatural monsters, he sees his best freinds murder through a bond they share magically.
On another continent and helpless to do anything, witnessing every detail and his murderer, Edrin Walker will return home to his city of Setharis and risk everything to avenge his friends death.
Absolutely brilliant, now for the second book, God of Broken Things, very highly recommended…😁🖤🗡💥
