Ep51 – City of Shards – Steve Rodgers
On today’s episode, author Steve Rodgers shares his epic fantasy novel, City of Shards.
In the Wormpile district, gangs rule the streets, urchins assault each other with minor magic, and the people boil under the sway of a monstrous god. There, Larin suffers tourette-like outbursts that have turned him into a neighborhood pariah, protected from the gangs only by his deadly but drug-addicted uncle.
When Larin finds that the nonsense phrase he shouts marks him as servant to an ancient malevolence, things go from bad to very strange. As priests of the Six-Legged Gods creep through the Wormpile, masking a suspicious agenda with cries for social justice, Larin realizes there are worse things than gangs lurking about the city. And he realizes that his servitude will force him to confront the Six-Legged gods, backed only by his uncommonly lethal uncle, an alcoholic priestess, and a noble wizardress with zero patience for commoners. For as bad as Larin’s Master is, refusing to follow him will only plunge his empire into a greater darkness–an abyss so deep, it will turn mankind’s soul to ash.
