'Beautifully written. Gripping. Guerdon is the city of my dreams' - Anna Smith Spark, author of The Court of Broken Knives
'A ground breaking and extraordinary novel . . . Ryder-Hanrahan has an astonishing imagination' Peter McLean, author of Priest of Bones
In the ancient city of Guerdon, three thieves - an orphan, a ghoul and a cursed man - are accused of a crime they didn't commit. Their quest for revenge exposes a perilous conspiracy, the seeds of which were sown long before they were born.
A centuries-old magical war is on the verge of reigniting and in the tunnels deep below the city, a malevolent power stirs. Only by standing together can the three friends prevent a conflict that would bring total devastation to their city - and the world beyond.
Set in a world of strange monsters, dark gods and dangerous magic, The Gutter Prayer is thrilling and visceral debut fantasy from an exciting new talent.
