Gods of the Wyrdwood

(The first book in the Forsaken Trilogy series)
A novel by

“A splendid fantasy work, full of RJ’s trademark invention." —Adrian Tchaikovsky, Arthur C. Clarke Award-winning author 

Our lands are wild with gods. Our woods are wild with monsters...

Cahan is known as a Forester—a man capable of navigating the dangerous forests of Crua like no one else. But once he was more. Once he was a warrior.

Udinny serves the goddess of the lost, a keeper of the small and helpless. When Udinny needs to venture into the Wyrdwood to find a missing child, she asks Cahan to be her guide.

But in a land where land is won and lost for uncaring gods, where the forest is full of monsters, Cahan will need to choose between his past life and the one leads now—and his choice will have consequences for his entire world.

Praise for Gods of the Wyrdwood:

"A sweeping story of destiny and redemption. Weighty, deliberate, tender and brutal, this is a big, wonderful book and an utterly involving read." —
Daily Mail
"A triple-threat of world-building, character and plot." —
SFX Magazine
