In the cataclysm of the battle of the gods, a portal to Hell has been opened, releasing legions of unnatural creatures that have pushed humanity to the edge of extinction. While warring deities clash with fallen angels, the only hope for mankind’s survival lies with the most unlikely heroes: Former assassin Rachel Hael has rejoined blood-magician Mina Greene and her little dog, Basilis, on one last desperate mission to save the world from the ravages of Hell. As Rachel travels to the final confrontation she has both sought and feared, she begins to realize that time itself is unraveling. And so she must prepare herself for a sacrifice that may claim her heart, her life, her soul—and even then it may not be enough.
Alan Campbell turned down a life as a designer and programmer on the vastly successful Grand Theft Auto computer games to enter the world of fiction with his debut novel, Scar Night. God of Clocks is his third novel. He lives in Scotland.
“Highly imaginative . . . Readers will thrill to the hellishly dark imagery.”—Publishers Weekly
“A blisteringly good read . . . If it were ever to transform to the wide screen, you would need a director that combined Peter Jackson’s scale with Terry Gilliam’s surrealism.”—Scotland on Sunday
