Thralls of a Tyrant God

Book 1 of The God Engine Trilogy

In a world ravaged by a cataclysmic event and ruled by tyrannical gods, Senn, the Herald of the Lord of Greed, rises to power by helping others escape the oppressive city of the Hub. But when he is betrayed by his own god and left for dead in the desert, Senn must confront his past and seek out a new source of power in order to take down the Forever King and his Chainkeepers.

Along the way, Senn is forced to grapple with deeper questions about survival, love, memory, and kindness in a harsh world.

A Dark Fantasy Epic, "The God Engine" trilogy draws on elements of Brandon Sanderson's Cosmere and Iain M. Banks' Culture to create a unique and exciting narrative universe.
