Product Description

Review

"Infidel is a well thought-out and intelligent novel, which asks a number of questions and refuses to present easy answers. " (SFF Chronicles)

"Readers who enjoyed God's War will not be disappointed by Infidel... I highly recommend it." (Strange Horizons Magazine)

"Hurley's world-building, vivid and blissfully free of infodumps and expository lumps, was one of the great strengths of God's War, and it's a pleasure to return to the fascinating and messed-up world she created -- one especially enjoyable for its ethnically diverse cast and freewheeling remixes of traditional gender roles. " (Tor.com)

"...Kameron Hurley is worth investing in... this is ground breaking work and should be recognized... " (Staffer's Musings)

Book Description

An action packed, high concept, far future thriller.

Format: Paperback
Nyxnissa - still not a bel dame despite her deal with the Queen, and working minor jobs just keeping her team fed - is plunged back into the fray when a rogue bel dame attempts to assassinate her current protectee. Nyx has to decide whose side she is really on - the bel dame sisterhood's, the Queen's, or a rogue element thrown out of the bel dames many years before - and what she is prepared to do in order to become a bel dame again.

At the end of God's War, Nyx's team has spread to the far winds. Her magician and shifter have gone to a safe third country, where they won't be compelled to fight. Her comms specialist is dead and her best gun has set up as an independent. The new team is more-or-less an excuse to rescue lost causes, and Nyx will need her old people and a lot of called-in favours to discover who is trying to kill her and possibly overthrow the kingdom of Nasheen.

The narrative here flows better than God's War, despite the jumping around to various characters' viewpoints. Inaya, Khos and Rhys have excellent character development, and we get to learn a little more about Nyx's contacts within the bel dames and the magicians, not to mention the Queen and her security service. We also see some more history and learn just how unusual Inaya's shifting abilities are. However, the world of Umayma is still too much a dark and depressing place for me to be able to invest in it emotionally, and Nyx seems to be not only adding to the horror of it but intent on continuing to do so.

I was given a free copy of this novel to review.

God's War was an incredible novel and Infidel continues in grand form. Hurley has created a rich, thought provoking world full of violence, sexual politics and intrigue. It's a remarkable novel, action packed, brilliant and driven by a forceful protagonist.

I am loving this series.

Format: Paperback
Several years have passed since the devastating events of God's War. Most of Nyx's former team have taken refuge in regions distant from the ongoing war between Nasheen and Chenja, taking up new lives, starting families and trying to move on. Nyx herself is still working on the sly for the Queen of Nasheen. When Nasheen is rocked by a devastating attack on the capital city and it becomes clear that the bel dame assassins are fighting amongst themselves, Nyx is forced to travel across the continent to consult her former allies Khos and Rhys. But her arrival in their new lives has horrifying consequences.

Infidel is the second volume in The Bel Dame Apocrypha, following on from God's War and preceding Rapture. As with the first novel, it's a hard-arsed book fusing fantasy to science fiction by way of a whole lot of attitude and a lot more smarts. It's also the rare middle volume of a trilogy that builds and improves on God's War.

God's War was a great book, but one that ended up being a little too confusing for its own good, especially at the start. Infidel is much more coherently focused on its storytelling, building a parallel narrative contrasting Rhys's new, peaceful life in Tirhan with Nyx's ongoing life of mayhem. This structure worked well in God's War but is even better here, with the different locations and circumstances for the two characters allowing Hurley to even more strongly define them. The two strands are held separate for a large chunk of the book, building up tension so that when they come together the results are appropriately cataclysmic.

Hurley's writing is tighter than in the first book and also more empathetic, building up the new characters and relationships so that when the inevitable gut-wrenching betrayals and deaths come, they hurt.

Its not often I'll even bother to wrote a review and even less often that I'll score so highly. Its disappointing to see reviews of mediocre books receiving high scores - misleading. This book however, is well written, beautifully characterised and utterly unique in its ideas. If you're a fan of something different then this will be your read of the month
