Smiler’s Fair: The Hollow Gods Book One

Smiler’s Fair, the great moving carnival where any pleasure can be had, if you’re willing to pay the price. They say all paths cross at Smiler’s Fair. They say it will change your life. And five people are about to discover how true that is.

Nethmi, the orphaned daughter of a murdered nobleman, who in desperation commits an act that will haunt her forever. Dae Hyo, the skilled warrior, who discovers that a lifetime of bravery can’t make up for a single mistake. Marvan, the master swordsman, who takes more pleasure from killing than he should. Eric, who follows his heart only to learn that love can exact a terrible price. And Krish, the humble goatherd, with a destiny he hardly understands and can never accept.

In a land where unimaginable horror lurks in the shadows, where the very sun and moon are at war, these five people will discover who they are – and who they’re willing to become.

‘The world feels more than usually solid, full of blood, sweat, pain, thirst, hunger, sharp swords, and hard edges… It’s a little bit Tolkien, a little bit Philip Pullman, a little bit Neil Gaiman’
