Kameron Hurley is an author whose debut God’s War, first in the Bel Dame Apocrypha series, was well received for its plot ingenuity as well as for its gritty characterization. I reviewed the book earlier this year over at Fantasy Book Critic and as noted in my review I was very much impressed by her writing skills and the world created. The series also has a couple of terrific covers by David Palumbo.
I’ll be reviewing Infidel as well near its release and so to give the readers who are eager to dive in to the world of Umayma, the author has come up with a great way for readers to learn more about the characters and the world. She’s planned to release three short stories for the readers, of which the first two were released last week. The three stories are:
3] Angels and Avengers
The recommended reading order is the one listed above as per the author. The first one can be found at various outlets such as Scribd & Smashworlds, ditto for Afterbirth HERE (Scribd) and HERE (Smashworlds). The third one will be released soon as well.
Lastly, for those readers who happen to be awestruck by Ms. Hurley’s debut and want to read more of her work, there’s a free download of the author's entire short story collection HERE (Scribd) or HERE (Smashwords). Bastard will be posting his thoughts on God's War soon as well, until then read these short stories to know more about the terrifying and violent world of Umayma and Nyx.
