The Broken God continues Gareth Hanrahan’s wildly imaginative Black Iron Legacy series. Everyone who loved the adventures in the first two installments will enjoy this book too. While Cari travels through strange lands cursed by the Godswar, a member of the Lyrixian criminal syndicate connects with the godly ghost of Spar Idgeson. What follows is a free-for-all of Saints, Gods, and Alchemist all once again conniving for control of the city of Guerdon.
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.
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.
