Gareth Hanrahan – The Gutter Prayer

A group of three young thieves are pulled into a centuries-old magical war between ancient beings, mages, and humanity in this wildly original debut epic fantasy.

Enter a city of saints and thieves….

The city of Guerdon stands eternal. A refuge from the war that rages beyond its borders. But in the ancient tunnels deep beneath its streets, a malevolent power has begun to stir.

The fate of the city rests in the hands of three thieves. They alone stand against the coming darkness. As conspiracies unfold and secrets are revealed, their friendship will be tested to the limit. If they fail, all will be lost, and the streets of Guerdon will run with blood.

The Gutter Prayer is an epic tale of sorcerers and thieves, treachery and revenge, from a remarkable new voice in fantasy.

patch hefty

Thieves, cutthroats, gangsters, political
corruption, forgotten lore, eldritch horrors, divine champions, mystery, and conspiracy. Mix Jack Vance, Fritz Leiber, and Lovecraft, stir in a city full of class and factional divisions, then set the whole thing on fire. Grimy and nasty, but not overly gleeful about it. Dark without being grimdark.
