It is two hundred years since the deity known as the Absolved went mad and destroyed the Kingdom of Alnachim, transforming it into the Execration, a blasted wasteland filled with nameless terrors. For decades, desperate souls have made pilgrimage to the centre of this cursed land to seek the Mad God's favour, their fate always unknown.

Now a veteran warrior known only as Pilgrim, armed with a fabled blade inhabited by the soul of a taunting demon, must join with six others to make the last journey to the heart of the Execration. Allied with a youthful priest, a beast-charmer, a duplicitous scholar, an effete actor and two exiled lovers, Pilgrim must survive madness, malevolent spirits, unnatural monsters and the ever-present risk of treachery, all so that the Mad God might hear his prayer and, perhaps, grant redemption. But can sins such as his ever be forgiven?

Set in a world where demons and gods walk the earth, A Pilgrimage of Swords is a dark and exciting fantasy adventure from the New York Times bestselling author of the Raven's Shadow and Draconis Memoria trilogies.

A couple of months ago, I was lucky enough to get access to an eARC (electronic Advance Reader's Copy) of the first in a new series of novellas from Anthony Ryan (author of Blood Song, etc.), called A Pilgrimage of Swords. Well, a few days ago, the signed physical copy came to me, and it's a real beauty. But, more important than the attractive exterior of the book is the story in the interior, and it's a very good one that I highly recommend everyone read. Gods and demons (especially demons, lol) walk the earth, and Pilgrim--a veteran warrior with an rather special sword--must deal with them, along with the maneuverings of his 6 questing companions...and they're mostly looking out for number 1.

Another great read from Anthony Ryan. It was short but very well-written, an intriguing MC and a diverse cast of characters traveling through a fascinating world. A truly enjoyable read.
