Praise

“An assured and complex debut novel with a main protagonist of questionable loyalty and morals that, despite yourself, you can’t help but love. It’s not often you come across a fresh voice and a fresh take on magic, but The Traitor God gives both. Moments of absolute horror sit cheek by jowl with humour of the blackest kind and some of the monstrous creations in this book are nauseatingly wonderful. After a slightly slow start I found it increasingly difficult to put this book down. I dearly hope we get to see more of Magus Edrin Walker in future books.”
Anna Stephens, author of Godblind

“From the frantic opening page, The Traitor God grabs you and doesn’t let go. Facing Gods, monsters, and a magic elite that wants him dead, Edrin Walker’s return to Setharis is a noirish romp packed with action and laced with black humour, and marks Cameron Johnston as a real name to watch in the epic fantasy genre.”
Neil Williamson, author of The Moon King

“Cameron Johnston is an exciting new voice in fantasy. His writing has a dark sense of humour and his debut is bursting with imagination and wonders. Fantastic stuff!”
Stephen Aryan, author of the Age of Darkness trilogy

“High magic and low lives collide in The Traitor God, one part street-level procedural and two parts an urban magic apocalypse, this is fantasy walking tall and carrying a big stick.”
Gavin G Smith, author of Age of Scorpio and The Bastard Legion

“Visceral and gripping fantasy, horribly and hugely enjoyable.”
Anna Smith Spark, author of The Court of Broken Knives

“The Traitor God by Cameron Johnston is part murder mystery, part detective story, and all fantasy that’s full of magic, shady villains and even shadier heroes. A hugely enjoyable tale and definitely a 2018 debut to look out for. Marvellous stuff.”
Edward Cox, author of The Relic Guild Trilogy

“Classic sword & sorcery with a wickedly blood-soaked grimdark twist.”
Peter McLean, author of Priest of Bones and the Burned Man series

“There’s a wonderful coarseness and vivacity to the world Johnston has created, and the magic and monsters featured are as horrific as they are fascinating… The finale is truly epic, and about as thrilling as they come.”
– Alan Brenik

“This was one of those times where the stars aligned and the read was the perfect fit for me mood. I read it in one sitting. It was entertaining, engrossing, and a bit violent (Arrr!!). I even refused to get shut-eye and instead stayed up into the wee hours of the morn turning pages because I just had to know how it ended… Pick this one up and hopefully enjoy it as much as I did.”
– The Captain’s Quarters

“This is a tightly written, believable world, one which will make you sit up and take notice. It’s not pretty, by any means, but it’ll seep off the page and into your pores… Its snappy, tautly written prose kept me turning pages until far too late in the night.”
– Sci-Fi and Fantasy Reviews

“An exceptional debut… This book is like a video game, wrapped inside an action movie, brilliantly told in written word form.”
– Out of this World

“Something that I truly enjoyed was the fact that even though Walker’s story is one of revenge, I felt like Walker’s story is also one of redemption.”
– Adele is Reading

The Traitor God is a wonderful fantasy story that knows how to keep you hooked till the end. Its grasp on grimdark elements is stellar and makes this a truly fun book to pick up when you feel like you need a nice quick swim through an ocean of blood.”
