You are not welcome here, godkiller
Kissen’s family were killed by zealots of a fire god. Now, she makes a living killing gods, and enjoys it. That is until she finds a god she cannot kill: Skedi, a god of white lies, has somehow bound himself to a young noble, and they are both on the run from unknown assassins.
Joined by a disillusioned knight on a secret quest, they must travel to the ruined city of Blenraden, where the last of the wild gods reside, to each beg a favour.
Pursued by demons, and in the midst of burgeoning civil war, they will all face a reckoning – something is rotting at the heart of their world, and only they can be the ones to stop it.

Micky’s 2.5 star review
I’m keeping this a short-ish review with thoughts in the positive and negative.
The concept of gods, how they could be created, sustained and killed was so interesting
The characters’ sexuality, fluidity and how that played into this world
Elo was a great character
Great late plot twist
Incredibly slow pacing, it was hard to stay invested
The middle section where the characters journey and journey felt lacking in excitement
Skedi was very annoying
I can see this book has worked well for many but for me it generally fell flat and if there’s more to come, I don’t think I’ll be joining in.
Thank you to Harper Voyager for the eARC.
