Overview

Third in Ben Peek's epic Children Trilogy

On the shores of Yeflam, Ayae struggles to keep her people together. She acts as liaison between the camp leaders and the immortals who could save them. Zaifyr's immortal siblings have arrived—but they have their own unfathomable agendas and Ayae is caught in their power games. Heast has returned to his role as Captain of Refuge, a mercenary unit that answers the call of lost causes. With help from an unexpected source, Heast and his band of mercenaries could turn the tide of war—if they live long enough. Bueralan Le is trapped in the company of the new god child. Though he fights to prevent her from unleashing her forces on the world, he is bound by blood to her darkest creation. The future of the world may depend on his choices.

Reviews

"Peek weaves multiple threads of the plot together with considerable skill...readers fond of open-ended epic fantasies set in vivid, and occasionally lurid, worlds will find it right up their alley." —Publishers Weekly on The Godless

"Questions of faith and religion and death drive the actions and character's motivations, as what seem to be philosophical questions take on very real dimensions with dire consequences. The Godless is populated by a cast of vibrant characters, sets up a fascinating start to a new series and is well worth a read." —British Fantasy Society
