It’s the end of an era. At least it is for Mennik Thorn. Legacy of a Hated God is the fourth and last book in Patrick Samphire’s Mennik Thorn series. While I’m excited to read more of Nik’s adventures, I’m sad it will be the last book. This is one of my favourite series from the last few years and I highly recommend you read them if you love fantasy and mysteries. For now, I have the cover to share with you. The artist, Ömer Burak Önal, did a wonderful job in creating this ominous cover. I can enjoy hope Nik and his new companion will get to the end of the book alive. There’s only one way to find out. Read the book!

Legacy of a Hated God
Release date: 2 November 2023
Cover artist: Ömer Burak Önal
Cover design: 50 Seconds North
Nik Thorn should know better than to get involved with gods. But when a priest of a hated god asks Nik to save his life, Nik can hardly refuse, particularly when the priest knows exactly how, where, when, and why he is going to be killed. How hard can it be?
Of course, that’s not Nik's only problem. When is it ever? A god has been murdered, the city’s high mages are about to go to war, and fury is rising in the streets.
Agatos will burn.
LEGACY OF A HATED is the fourth and final book in the Mennik Thorn series, which started with SHADOW OF A DEAD GOD, then continued with NECTAR FOR THE GOD, then STRANGE CARGO.
About the Author
Patrick Samphire started writing when he was fourteen years old and thought it would be a good way of getting out of English lessons. It didn’t work, but he kept on writing anyway. He has lived in Zambia, Guyana, Austria, and England. He has been charged at by a buffalo and, once, when he sat on a camel, he cried. He was only a kid. Don’t make this weird.
Patrick has worked as a teacher, an editor and publisher of physics journals, a marketing minion, a web designer, and a pen pusher (real job!). He has a PhD in theoretical physics, which is about as much use as you might expect. As well as writing, he works as a freelance editor and book cover designer. He now lives in Wales, U.K. with his wife, the awesome writer Stephanie Burgis, their two sons, and their cat, Pebbles. Right now, in Wales, it is almost certainly raining.
Patrick has published about twenty short stories and novellas, two novels for children, and three novels for adults, the first of which was SHADOW OF A DEAD GOD.
