News, The Cruel Gods

New Release! Tales From Across the Domains!

Today’s October 13th, which makes it a holy day in The Cruel Gods world (yes I know that’s ironic) as it’s the anniversary of The Thirteenth Hour and The Children of Chaos! Sadly, I couldn’t get the third and final book finished in time, so instead I offer a gift!



Tales From Across the Domains is a short story collection set in The Cruel Gods world. This collection features fifteen short stories based on each domain, as well as three bonus stories set in Chime from the perspective of everyone’s favourite gentlemanly Warden. If you’ve read the previous Cruel Gods books, then you’ll recognize many familiar faces. But if you’re new to the series, then fear not! You can read these stories without encountering any major spoilers. These stories offer a ‘slice of life’ look at what life is like within each domain. Some of them are funny, some are definitely creepy!

Here’s the official blurb:

Apostates, misfits, rebels, and sinners. What do they have in common? They all desire freedom to choose their own path in defiance of the gods who own their souls.

From an underwater domed city to perilous jungles, volcanic cabaret theaters, mushroom forests, and beyond, travel across twelve unique domains and learn of mortal life under the gods’ watchful eyes. Your journey begins in Chime, a steam-powered city that connects each domain through a magical portal that changes at the turn of the hour.

Wardens are on hand to guide you on your journey, but be careful—not all domains are safe to traverse, and not all are what they seem.

Tales From Across the Domains is a collection of fifteen short stories set within The Cruel Gods world—a gaslamp fantasy featuring magical portals, gothic cosmic deities, quaint Britishisms, and steampunk vibes. These short stories can be read at any point during the series and contain strong language and mature themes that some readers may find disturbing.

You can pick up your copy of Tales From Across the Domains NOW on Amazon Kindle or paperback. You can also add it to your Goodreads.
