Spotlight & Excerpt: Godfell + Giveaway

I am thrilled to be hosting a spot on the GODFELL: The Complete Series by Chris Sebela & Ben Hennessy Blog Tour hosted by Rockstar Book Tours. Check out my post and make sure to enter the giveaway!

 

Title: GODFELL: The Complete Series

Authors: Chris Sebela & Ben Hennessy (Illustrator)

Pub. Date: March 19, 2024

Publisher: Vault Comics

Formats:  Paperback, eBook

Pages: 192

Find it: Goodreads, books2read 

 

XENA Warrior Princess meets The Lord of the Rings in GODFELL: The Complete Series, where the sudden appearance of a dead god who falls to Earth sets off a chain reaction of events for control of the world in this woman warrior-led, high fantasy adventure.

God is dead. Who’s next?

One sunny day in the land of Kerethim, God falls dead from the sky. The impact sends out shockwaves that draw in royal families at war, shadowy creatures of the dark, and armies of the dispossessed, all coming to lay claim to parts of God’s body. Into this power struggle wanders Zanzi Vuiline, a soldier and berserker trying to get home from a years-long war. Forced to fight her way through the strange landscapes in and on God’s corpse, from the soles of its feet through the top of its head, Zanzi will acquire a mysterious traveling companion on her own pilgrimage.

GODFELL: The Complete Series tells the story of a fierce warrior woman tired of war and her traveling companion with her own reasons for war weariness – and revenge. These two forces of nature are on a journey to find their way back home – and to themselves. Written by Eisner Award-nominated author Chris Sebela and illustrations by rising star artist Ben Hennessy.

For fans of: Xena: Warrior Princess, Monstress (Liu/Takeda), Red Sonja, Barbaric (Moreci/Gooden), Queen of Swords (Moreci/Howell/Gooden), Briar, Step By Bloody Step, The Witcher, Rat Queens, The Many Deaths of Laila Starr, Die, Coda, Seven to Eternity, Isola, and Elf Quest.


Praise:

Godfell is a big, savage blast of legendary warrior fiction. It has a brilliant premise, striking artwork and fascinating protagonists.” – Eoin Colfer (New York Times bestselling author of: Artemis Fowl, The Supernaturalist, The Wish List, The Fowl Twins, Highfire, Illegal, W.A.R.P., Ironman: The Gauntlet, Doctor Who: A Big Hand for the Doctor, and more! )

Godfell is that rare idea that makes me upset I didn’t hatch it myself: an axe-swinging yet soulful journey into the mysteries of the physical realm — and beyond.” — Daniel Kraus (New York Times bestselling author of: The Shape of Water, Whalefall, The Teddies Saga, The Death and Life of Zebulon Finch, Trollhunters, THE AUTUMNAL (Vault Comics), THE CEMETERIANS (Vault Comics), and more!)

Godfell is completely sweeping me away with its Odysseus-like journey home through beautiful landscapes, with a rich lore and compelling characters. It holds mysteries I can’t wait to see resolved but I’ll enjoy the path as patiently as I can. A brilliant work by the creators!” – Nora Twomey (award-winning animator, director, screenwriter, producer and voice actress. Known for: Wolfwalkers, My Father’s Dragon, The Breadwinner, The Secret of Kells)

“Fantasy doesn’t get more epic than this! The mother of all quests begins here!” –Cavan Scott (New York Times bestselling author and screenwriter: Star Wars: The High Republic, Shadow Service, Doctor Who, Sherlock Holmes, 2000 A.D.)

Godfell ushers in an exciting new fantasy comic that is electrifying and dynamic with a magnetic woman warrior on a mysterious journey. Sebela takes well-worn genre beats and makes it his own. Wonderfully illustrated and eloquently written, Godfell is a godsend. 10/10– Lotusland Comics

“… recommend picking this up if you’re a fan of fantasy adventures in weird worlds such as The Last Airbender.” – Sequential Planet

Vampire: The Masquerade: Winter’s Teeth
A tale of two vampires in the Twin Cities…
When Cecily Bain, an enforcer for the Twin Cities’ vampiric elite, takes a mysterious new vampire, Alejandra, under her wing, she’s dragged into an insidious conspiracy. After learning a disturbing fact about her fake childe’s past, Cecily must keep her secrets close, and Ali at arm’s length. As she searches the streets of the Twin Cities for answers, a terrifying possibility surfaces: perhaps Ali has learned the ways of the Kindred better than Cecily herself. Meanwhile, on the outskirts of the cities, Colleen Pendergrass, embraced by her husband against her will, and a rebellious found-family of vampire cast-outs investigates a vicious killing.

As the unlives of the Kindred twine together and betrayals are unearthed, will Cecily be able to escape and save what’s left of her family, or will she be yet another pawn sacrificed to maintain the age-old secret: that vampires exist among the living?

World of Darkness: Crimson Thaw
There’s worse living in the shadows than vampires … something with even
bigger teeth.

Cecily Bain has become everything she never wanted as The Prince of the Twin Cities. But her rule over a fractured, backbiting vampire court is interrupted by an intruder: something big, hairy and full of teeth. For over a century, werewolves of the Twin Cities have protected their blessed places from threats both physical and spiritual. When vampires under Cecily’s rule move in on one of these precious sites, it’s a declaration of war, one that Tyrell ‘the Stainless’ Stinar and his ferocious pack will avenge at any cost, even if that includes slaying one of their own.The immortal enmity between the Kindred and the Garou comes to a head on the streets of the Twin Cities!
