The first Marius don Hellespont novel.

This ebook is sold as a Zip file containing both Epub (iOS, Android) and Mobi (Kindle) files.


Marius don Hellespont and his apprentice, Gerd, are professional looters of battlefields. When they stumble upon the corpse of the King of Scorby and Gerd is killed, Marius is mistaken for the monarch by one of the dead soldiers and is transported down to the Kingdom of the Dead.

Just like the living citizens, the dead need a King — after all, the King is God’s representative, and someone needs to remind God where they are.

And so it comes to pass that Marius is banished to the surface with one message: if he wants to recover his life he must find the dead a King. Which he fully intends to do.

Just as soon as he stops running away.

File Under: Fantasy [ Royal Prospect | Looting & Fishing | The Living Dead | Keep On Running ]

Praise and Reviews

"A stunning debut novel, well-crafted and grotesquely inventive. With its madcap story, unforgettable characters and fine balance between humour and pathos, The Corpse-Rat King ticks all the boxes. Fans of Joe Abercrombie will love this."
- Juliet Marillier, award-winning author of the Sevenwaters series and Bridei's Chronicles

"The Corpse-Rat King is rugged, muscular fantasy, sure to please those who like their adventures rough around the edges, with wit and style to burn."
- Karen Miller, author of The Innocent Mage and the Godspeaker trilogy.

"If you had a wish list every time you read a book – great characters, story, pace, writing – that you ticked off every time you came across one of them, you’d soon wear out your pencil while reading The Corpse-Rat King."
- Katy O'Dowd, The British Fantasy Society
