The Godswar has come to Guerdon, dividing the city between three occupying powers. A fragile armistice holds back the gods, but other dangerous forces seek to exert their influence. Spar Idgeson, once heir to the brotherhood of thieves has been transformed into the living stone of the new city. But his powers are failing and the criminal dragons of the Ghierdana are circling.

Meanwhile, far across the sea, Carillon Thay - once a thief, a saint, a god killer; now alone and powerless - seeks the mysterious land of Khebesh, desperate to find a cure for Spar. But what hope does she have when even the gods seek vengeance against her?

Review quote

Hanrahan has an astonishing imagination -- Peter McLean, author of PRIEST OF BONES I will buy any novel that Gareth Hanrahan ever writes . . . I want [this series] to go on forever -- THE FANTASY INN An intricate and finely crafted web of compelling characters navigating a city rich in dark and original wonders. I await the sequel with the keenest anticipation -- Anthony Ryan on THE GUTTER PRAYER Mind-blowingly stellar in every respect . . . I envision that The Gutter Prayer will not only win many readers' hearts but also win multiple fantasy awards in the near future. Yes, it was THAT good. Read it. Thank me later -- NOVEL NOTIONS on THE GUTTER PRAYER Hanrahan is now one of my favourite authors. I flat out adore this series Hanrahan ramps up the eldritch pyrotechnics in his gritty third Black Iron Legacy epic . . . Hanrahan's prose and imagery harken back to the best of classic sword and sorcery fantasy with humans struggling to survive as deities battle. This will please series fans -- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

About Gareth Hanrahan

Gareth Hanrahan's three-month break from computer programming to concentrate on writing has now lasted fifteen years and counting. He's written more gaming books than he can readily recall, by virtue of the alchemical transmutation of tea and guilt into words. He lives in Ireland with his wife and three children.
