Description
"A woman with strange abilities travels across a bizarre war-torn land in an inventive and gruesomely comic fantasy tale. The Endless War is so ancient a conflict that most of those fighting in it cannot point to its origins. The war has devastated the lands surrounding the city of Eth, turning both the city and its surroundings, including those who inhabit it, into one boiling cauldron of violence. In catacombs underneath the city, the calcified organs of long-dead gods radiate eldritch power, and the land is ruled by and fought over by those looking to hardness the complexities of dark magick. Among these desperate struggles, one woman stands apart: Ashlan Ley, who's survived much longer than most through the war and is connected to Eth in unanticipated ways. Self-exiled and stewing through old memories and regretted choices, a unexpected meeting breathes new hope into her long-simmering quest for control of the city. Through ruined temples and cursed battlefields, with freaks and junkies as her only allies, Ashlan knows the only way to fight is with everything she's got - guts and all. A darkly comic tale of characters who will be difficult to forget, Viscera drags classic swords and sorcery through the mire of modern grimdark, through a world whose weirdness gleams from every nook and cranny. Skyhorse Publishing, under our Night Shade and Talos imprints, is proud to publish a broad range of titles for readers interested in science fiction (space opera, time travel, hard SF, alien invasion, near-future dystopia), fantasy (grimdark, sword and sorcery, contemporary urban fantasy, steampunk, alternative history), and horror (zombies, vampires, and the occult and supernatural), and much more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller, a national bestseller, or a Hugo or Nebula award-winner, we are committed to publishing quality books from a diverse group of authors"--
