There was a time when the Red Gods ruled the land. The Dark Lady and her horde dealt in death and blood and fire.
That time has long since passed, and the neighbouring kingdoms of Mireces and Rilpor hold an uneasy truce. The only blood spilled is confined to the border, where vigilantes known as Wolves protect their kin and territory at any cost.
But after the death of his wife, King Rastoth is plagued by grief, leaving the kingdom of Rilpor vulnerable. Vulnerable to the bloodthirsty greed of the Warrior-King Liris and the Mireces army waiting in the mountains...
Godblind is an incredible debut from a dazzling new voice of the genre.

Too many characters
Had high expectations from other reviews and it's extremely rare I give up on a book but no, this one I struggled to finish, too many characters not grabbed by any of them, gave up in the end. Liked the narrator but for me the story had too many starts, too many characters introduced without development so I got confused and had zero interest in the end.

Beautiful and brutal
If you could sum up Godblind in three words, what would they be?
What 3 words would sum up Godblind? For me they would have to be.
Back-stabbing, just simply because there is quite a lot of it. Brutal as it is very much the way of the red gods as beauty is the way of the gods of light.
I did consider the word "Torture", but not because there are a lot of torture scenes but rather because of the ways in which some of the characters are tortured by their gods.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Godblind?
The torture scene for me was the most memorable for a few reasons. The most obvious is the detail in which it plays out as it is pretty detailed, but also because it conveys a lot about the lengths the followers of the red gods would go to for that grab at power they get through blind obedience.
Which character – as performed by Maggie Ollerenshaw – was your favourite?
Having grown up with Maggie play Mavis in Open all Hours I really wasn't sure what to expect but she does such an amazing job narrating the book. I think the cocky swagger she gives Crys and the start of his plunge towards a degree of madness are amazing. Equally the timid Rilirin to a character of grit and determination she narrates incredibly.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
There is a moment in the book which involves Chrys's parents, which pulled my heart out and ripped it apart, I'd rather not say more than that through fear of spoiling it for anyone.
