Product description

Review

"An assured and complex debut novel with a main protagonist of questionable loyalty and morals that, despite yourself, you can't help but love. It's not often you come across a fresh voice and a fresh take on magic, but The Traitor God gives both. Moments of absolute horror sit cheek by jowl with humour of the blackest kind and some of the monstrous creations in this book are nauseatingly wonderful. After a slightly slow start I found it increasingly difficult to put this book down. I dearly hope we get to see more of Magus Edrin Walker in future books."
- Anna Stephens, author of Godblind

"From the frantic opening page, The Traitor God grabs you and doesn't let go. Facing Gods, monsters, and a magic elite that wants him dead, Edrin Walker's return to Setharis is a noirish romp packed with action and laced with black humour, and marks Cameron Johnston as a real name to watch in the epic fantasy genre."
- Neil Williamson, author of The Moon King

"Cameron Johnston is an exciting new voice in fantasy. His writing has a dark sense of humour and his debut is bursting with imagination and wonders. Fantastic stuff!"
- Stephen Aryan, author of the Age of Darkness trilogy

"High magic and low lives collide in The Traitor God, one part street-level procedural and two parts an urban magic apocalypse, this is fantasy walking tall and carrying a big stick."
- Gavin G Smith, author of Age of Scorpio and The Bastard Legion

"Visceral and gripping fantasy, horribly and hugely enjoyable."
- Anna Smith Spark, author of The Court of Broken Knives

"The Traitor God by Cameron Johnston is part murder mystery, part detective story, and all fantasy that's full of magic, shady villains and even shadier heroes. A hugely enjoyable tale and definitely a 2018 debut to look out for. Marvellous stuff."
- Edward Cox, author of The Relic Guild Trilogy

"Classic sword & sorcery with a wickedly blood-soaked grimdark twist."
- Peter McLean, author of Priest of Bones and the Burned Man series

"Epic fantasy meets hardboiled noir, with a foul-mouthed, seen -it-all narrator you won't soon forget."
- Barnes & Noble Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog

"I'm looking forward to seeing who and what Walker kicks in the balls in the sequel. If you enjoy clever gray characters, gritty but interesting worlds, and creepy magic, this book is for you."
- Fantasy Hive

"There's a wonderful coarseness and vivacity to the world Johnston has created, and the magic and monsters featured are as horrific as they are fascinating. The finale is truly epic, and about as thrilling as they come."
- Alan Brenik

"This is a tightly written, believable world, one which will make you sit up and take notice. It's not pretty, by any means, but it'll seep off the page and into your pores. It's snappy, tautly written prose kept me turning pages until far too late in the night."
- Sci-Fi and Fantasy Reviews

Product Description

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...

3.0 out of 5 starsMediocre, unexciting, a bit bleah... the reader is told things instead of shown them. A solid C or C+.
