Bastard Giveaway: Requiem by Tim Marquitz

Three months ago we had a guest post by Tim Marquitz where he shared his challenges and lessons learned while writing a dark epic fantasy trilogy. I mention this because he just released the last novel of the Blood War Trilogy with the title Requiem.

It's Halloween, which apparently for Marquitz it means time to give free stuff. Now we have a giveaway for Requiem and other bonus freebies. As a quick reminder, you can get the first of the trilogy Dawn of War for free.

There's a free short story which was picking up plenty of dust in Marquitz's computer, it's a dark urban fantasy so should fit right in with Halloween. Its title is Into the Mirror Black with the short description, "Driven by darkness, Tyson sets the stage for the elder gods' return."

Those that have followed this blog know that I consider Marquitz's urban fantasy series Demon Squad one of the more underrated urban fantasy series out there, which also happens to be one of my favorites.

With that in mind and since this month I've had a series of urban fantasy related guest posts, as part of the Requiem giveaway, everyone who answers the question, "What's your most underrated urban fantasy title?" in the comments section of this post, Tim Marquitz will send you eBook copies of Armageddon Bound (the first of the Demon Squad series) and Embers of an Age (second novel of the Blood War Trilogy).

  1. This comment has been removed by the author.

  2. Deleted my first comment because I misread the question and originally commented with an over-rated book rather than an under-rated. OOPS!

    My favorite urban fantasy series is the Toby Daye series by Seanan McGuire. I highly recommend it!

  3. Most underrated urban fantasy novel? Blood Engines by Tim Pratt or just any in the Marla Mason series. It is a crime that Pratt had to kickstart the publication of the 5th and 6th novels of the series because it was canceled by his publisher :(

  4. One of the most underrated urban fantasies is Lawson vampire series by Jon Merz.

  5. Thanks for the great giveaway! I'd have to say, Married with Zombies, Flip This Zombie, and Eat Slay Love (Living with the Dead Trilogy)by Jesse Petersen. She had more books planned but publisher dropped her :(

  6. Weeeell, you know what book I will pick for underrated. Right? Soooo, lets see if I can find another one, as I always sound like a broken record with that one. *couchyouneedtoreadcough*....hmmm, I think one I don't hear much about is Marjorie M. Liu Hunter Kiss series. I always enjoyed that one, although now I have a book to read yet of that series.

  7. October Daye series by Seanan McGuire. Great characters, really creative fae worlds, far fewer tropes than the aversge UF, and a sweetly charming long slow build of a (maybe/probably) romance through the series.

  8. The Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews. Amazing plots, characters, world building etc. I have to agree with other posts October Daye is also a wonderful series.

  9. While I know he isn't an unknown or under rated author, the question was about under rated titles, and I believe that 'the ring' by piers anthony is unknown by many. I read it about 20 years ago, and I still remember that I had really loved it.
