Cover Unveiled for God's War by Kameron Hurley

Cover art by David Palumbo, design by Rebecca Silvers
Night Shade has been doing some very nice covers recently and their latest is no slouch either. God's War is Kameron Hurley's debut novel coming out from Night Shade early next year. It gives me a nice desert-like Indiana Jones feel. I particularly appreciate the slanted title treatment.

God's War was originally signed to Spectra, but after some upheavals at Random House the novel was let go a couple years back now.  Hopefully the adage that good things come to those who wait comes true as I was originally interested in this novel nearly two years ago when I first heard about it. It has been described as Bugpunk. Yeah. That probably sounds cool to you. Some might say what Adrian Tchaikovsky has been doing is bugpunk, but from what little I've uncovered this will be very, very different and much darker in tone plus it sports a very strong blurb from Jeff VanderMeer who is not too quick to praise.

"Kameron Hurley's a brave, unflinching, truly original writer with a unique vision -- her fiction burns right through your brain and hour heart."
-- Jeff VanderMeer, author of Finch

Nyx had already been to hell. One prayer more or less wouldn't make any difference...

On a ravaged, contaminated world, a centuries-old holy war rages. Fought by a bloody mix of mercenaries, magicians, and conscripted soldiers, the origins of the war are shady and complex, but there's one thing everybody agrees on...

There's not a chance in hell of ending it.

Nyx is a former government assassin who makes a living cutting off heads for cash. But when a dubious deal between her government and an alien gene pirate goes bad. Nyx's ugly past makes her the top pick for a covert recovery. The head they want her to bring home could end the war -- but at what price?
God's War is the first in a trilogy. I haven't heard the series name yet, but the second book is Infidel and the third is slated to be Bablyon. Hurley is currently at work on the third so the series should steadily come out a year apart if not sooner.
