God's War(Bel Dame Apocrypha, #1)
Nebula Award nominee 2011, Locus Award nominee 2012.
Nyx had already been to hell. One prayer more or less wouldn't make any difference...
On a ravaged, contaminated world, a centuries-old holy war rages. Fought by a bloody mix of mercenaries, magicians, and conscripted soldiers, the origins of the war are shady and complex, but there's one thing everybody agrees on...
There's not a chance in hell of ending it.
Nyx is a former government assassin who makes a living cutting off heads for cash. But when a dubious deal between her government and an alien gene pirate goes bad. Nyx's ugly past makes her the top pick for a covert recovery. The head they want her to bring home could end the war – but at what price?
The world is about to find out.
"Kameron Hurley's a brave, unflinching, truly original writer with a unique vision – her fiction burns right through your brain and hour heart." – Jeff VanderMeer, author of Finch
