Hello Hello! How are you?
Today’s post is a spotlight for Shadow of a Dead God by Patrick Samphire, which came 7th place in the #BBNYA2021 competition that I was lucky enough to be on the panel for!!
I had such great fun participating in last year’s panel, and I can’t wait to take part in this year’s panel, but until then, I am going to be bringing you blog posts for all 10 of the finalists, with some reviews where I can squeeze them in, so stay tuned for those.
Now, without further ado, here is all the information you need to know about the book that came in 7th place!!
It was only supposed to be one little job – a simple curse-breaking for Mennik Thorn to pay back a favor to his oldest friend. But then it all blew up in his face. Now he’s been framed for a murder he didn’t commit.
So how is a second-rate mage, broke, traumatized, and with a habit of annoying the wrong people, supposed to prove his innocence when everyone believes he’s guilty?
Mennik has no choice if he wants to get out of this: he is going to have to throw himself into the corrupt world of the city’s high mages, a world he fled years ago. Faced by supernatural beasts, the mage-killing Ash Guard, and a ruthless, unknown adversary, it’s going to take every trick Mennik can summon just to keep him and his friend alive.
But a new, dark power is rising in Agatos, and all that stands in its way is one damaged mage…
