"On a ravaged, contaminated world, a centuries-old holy war rages, fought by a bloody mix of mercenaries, magicians, and conscripted soldiers. Though the origins of the war are shady and complex, 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? The world is about to find out"--P. [4] of cover.
From the Publisher:
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.

Annotation:
Former assassin, Nyx manages to keep her head above water in her dirty, violent homeworld working as a bounty hunter with a magician named Rhys. A high-level job pits them against some dangerous individuals in Kameron Hurley's GOD'S WAR, an intriguing first book.

Praise

"Readers will be fascinated by the setting of this slow-starting but compelling far-future debut....[His] world-building is phenomena...and Hurley smoothly handles tricky themes such as race, class, religion, and gender without sacrificing action." 12/20/2010
