The Shadow Saint (The Black Iron Legacy #2) by Gareth Ryder-Hanrahan - Book Review 29, Aug

The warlike pantheon of Ishmere is on the move. What remains to be seen is whether they will march on Guerdon, the Undead Empire of Old Haith, or the Dragon Syndicates of Lyrix.  Meanwhile, each faction's intrigues set the stage for a cutthroat romp with all sides maneuvering for control of the infamous God bombs.  

The Gutter Prayer (The Black Iron Legacy #1) by Gareth Ryder-Hanrahan 17, Jul

I’m going to try to say some coherent stuff about the Gutter Prayer, but forgive me if I digress into fanboy squealing at some point. This novel ticks off just about every box I look for in an epic fantasy: an ancient setting full of mysteries, unique characters embroiled in nail-biting intrigue, and wizards made of the worms that consumed their corpses. 

The Gutter Prayer (The Black Iron Legacy #1) by Gareth Hanrahan 29, Apr

'...there are moments when things can change, when the forces balance and it's possible for people - individual people - to make a big difference. To reallign things. Remake the world.' For me, Gareth Hanrahan's The Gutter Prayer could possibly reshape the fantasy ficition genre.
