9780091952785: God's War: Bel Dame Apocrypha

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.

Review:

"God's War is one of the most thought-provoking debuts I've read so far this year." - Locus Magazine

"Are you frustrated with Mary Sue heroines? Well, here comes God's War to rock your face off... 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." - i09

"God's War is a clever reinterpretation of the war novel.  Hurley takes on issues of gender roles, violence, and religion and does it all with a deft hand." - Staffer's Musings

 "God's War was part slow burn, part explosive action... in the end the novel was utterly compelling.-  Tor.com

"God's War is a violent tale set against the backdrop of a centuries-old holy war. But beyond all the blood and violence, it's a beautifully crafted work of art that keeps astonishing you when you least expect it." - Pat's Fantasy Hotlist

Kameron Hurley's a brave, unflinching, truly original writer with a unique vision--her fiction burns right through your brain and your heart. --Jeff VanderMeer, author of Finch
