Cover Reveal: Legacy of a Hated God, by Patrick Samphire

19 Sept 2023

Welcome to a new cover reveal!

Today we have the pleasure of helping reveal the cover of Legacy of a Hated God, the fourth and final book in the Mennik Thorn series, which started with Shadow of a Dead God (SPFBO7 finalist), continued with Nectar for the God, then Strange Cargo.

Let's take a look at the blurb:

Nik Thorn should know better than to get involved with gods.

But when a priest of a hated god asks Nik to save his life, Nik can hardly refuse, particularly when the priest knows exactly how, where, when, and why he is going to be killed. How hard can it be?

Of course, that’s not Nik's only problem. When is it ever? A god has been murdered, the city’s high mages are about to go to war, and fury is rising in the streets.

Agatos will burn.

This book will be published on the 2nd November, 2023; you can currently preorder it on the following link:

The cover illustration has been made by Ömer Burak Önal (you can check more of his work here) and the design has been made by 50 Seconds North (the design service run by the own author; you can check more about it here).

Time to see that cover!

 Patrick Samphire is the author of the adult fantasy novels SHADOW OF A DEAD GOD, NECTAR FOR THE GOD, STRANGE CARGO, and the forthcoming LEGACY OF A HATED GOD, as well as the middle grade novels SECRETS OF THE DRAGON TOMB and THE EMPEROR OF MARS. He has published around twenty short stories and novellas.

Patrick has been writing stories since he was fourteen years old and thought it would be a good way of avoiding having to sit through English lessons at school. He was absolutely convinced that he would be famous by the time he was eighteen, but sadly, even infamy has eluded him.

He lives in Wales, surrounded by mountains, with his wife, their sons, and their cat.

When he's not writing, he designs websites and ebooks.

He will now stop talking about himself in the third person.
