Devin Madson is an Aurealis Award-winning fantasy author from Australia. After some sucky teenage years, she gave up reality and is now a dual-wielding rogue who works through every tiny side-quest and always ends up too over-powered for the final boss. Anything but zen, Devin subsists on tea and chocolate and so much fried zucchini she ought to have turned into one by now. Her fantasy novels come in all shades of grey and are populated with characters of questionable morals and a liking for witty banter.

Though the stories do follow on from one another I deliberately wrote it so that you can enter the story at either The Blood of Whisperers or We Ride the Storm. Depending on the way you do so you get a different experience but I wouldn't say one is necessarily better or worse, just different! I generally say to people, read the one that calls to you :)(less)

The Gutter Prayer by Gareth Ryder-Hanrahan
"ARC provided by the publisher—Orbit— in exchange for an honest review.

I don’t think it’s too soon for me to say that The Gutter Prayer will be the best fantasy debut of 2019.

"To wander.”
