About the Author

Nicky Drayden is a Systems Analyst who dabbles in prose when she's not buried in code. She resides in Austin, Texas, where being weird is highly encouraged, if not required. Her debut novel, The Prey of Gods, is set in a futuristic South Africa brimming with demigods, robots, and hallucinogenic hijinks.

Reviews

"Drayden (The Prey of Gods) crafts a tangled, fantastical African society as the setting for her spellbinding sophomore novel [...] Drayden takes speculative fiction in an exciting direction with a harrowing and impressive tale of twisted prophecy, identity, and cataclysmic change." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"[Drayden] excels at making every twist and turn of the plot meaningful to the story. Moreover, the world-building is deliciously lush and complex. " -- Booklist (starred review)

"A thrilling and thrillingly weird book." -- Vulture (The 10 Best Sci-Fi and Fantasy Books of 2018)

"It feels real in the ways of the best speculative fiction, as if we're looking at ourselves in a funhouse mirror, noting the skewed beauty, the blemishes, and all." -- B&N Sci-fi & Fantasy Blog

"Drayden is an amazing writer and deft plotter. The twists are unexpected and never feel contrived, just as the novel explores real-world issues without sounding preachy." -- Library Journal

"Temper soars precariously, like a skyscraper made of playing cards, presenting a fast paced -- if occasionally messy -- reading experience." -- Nerds of a Feather
