She comes.

The skies bleed. The earth groans. The sea howls. The world is rent asunder as the Kraken Queen claws her way from hell. And the only ones standing in her way are a young man with a piece of steel and a voice in his head, his many companions, and their many, many problems.

As Lenk journeys to the Island of Jaga, the tomb of Ulbecetonth, he is hunted. By enemies, by the woman he loves, by the demon he has to kill, by an army of any number of bloodthirsty purple berserkers, savage lizardmen, vicious monsters, and colossal demons.

In the lands where sky and sea have forgotten they were ever separate, Lenk and the companions' destinies await at the tip of a sword and the mouth of hell.



Reviews

"Sam Sykes does blood and noise in the liveliest tradition of contemporary fantasy, with all the brash vigor of youth, and with a sly, penetrating sensitivity all his own. Not many writers can give you fireworks and subtlety at the same time like he can."
—Scott Lynch, author of The Lies of Locke Lamora

"If you like your fantasy dark and twisted . . .
The Aeons' Gate is a series tailor-made for you."

—Civilian Reader

"Recommend[ed] for people who enjoy fantasy with some
dark humor, violence, and chaos."

—Night Owl Reviews

"I do not wish Sam Sykes dead."
—John Scalzi, author of Redshirts

"Epic, crude, dark, silly, scary, violent, and surprisingly tender."
—Rob Will Review
