Gods of the Wyrdwood is out today! 

Gods of the Wyrdwood features a dark, spooky forest setting and an eternal winter. This atmospheric read is full of rich worldbuilding, fate and deities at war. Gods of the Wyrdwood is the first book in a new trilogy from much loved fantasy author R. J. Barker. 

Read the blurb: 

'Ours is a land of many gods, and we are a people with the ability to pick the worst of them.

Cahan du Nahare is known as the forester – a humble man who can nonetheless navigate the dangerous Deepforest like no-one else. But once he was more. Once he was a warrior.

Udinny serves the goddess of the lost, a goddess of the small and helpless. When she ventures into the Deepforest to find a missing child, Cahan will be her guide.

But in a land at war, in a forest full of monsters – Cahan will need to choose between his past life and the one he leads now – and his choice will have consequences for his entire world.

Gods of the Wyrdwood is book one in a new fantasy trilogy set within the bounds of a forest straight out of darkest folklore – with outlaws fighting an evil empire and warring deities. RJ Barker is the British Fantasy Society Award-winning author ofThe Bone Ships and Age of Assassins.' (Hachette)
