The Thin Executioner

Heads will roll…

In a harsh, unforgiving world of slavery and glorified executions, one boy’s humiliation leads him to embark on a perilous quest: a journey to the faraway lair of a mysterious god. It is a dark, brutal, nightmarish journey which few have ever survived. But to Jebel Rum, the risk is worth it – to retrieve his honour, to win the hand of the girl he loves, to wield unimaginable power – and to become THE THIN EXECUTIONER! From the brilliant imagination that brought you The Demonata comes this brand new story of swords, sand, sorcery and terror!

“A brutal ride; covering religious and cult themes that have you chilled to the bone… I loved the book; it had me shocked, captivated and engrossed all at the same time.” Mr Ripley’s Enchanted Books review
