“You’re going to love Nyx … she makes Han Solo look like a Boy Scout.”
Ex-government assassin turned bounty-hunter Nyx is good at solving other people’s problems. Her favorite problem-solving solution is punching people in the face. Then maybe chopping off some heads. Hey—it’s a living.
Nyx’s disreputable reputation has been well earned. After all, she’s trying to navigate an apocalyptic world full of giant bugs, contaminated deserts, scheming magicians, and a centuries-long war that’s consuming her future. Managing her ragtag squad of misfits has required a lot of morally-gray choices. Every new job is another day alive. Every new mission is another step toward changing a hellish future—but only if she can survive.
APOCALYPSE NYX is the must-have collection of Kameron Hurley’s five newest Nyx adventures.
“Nyx is back and just as good as ever. In this new collection of five novellas, Kameron Hurley serves up courses of crunchy action and intrigue, layered with tender character moments that bring real depth to this intense, unique world.”
—JY Yang, author of The Black Tides of Heaven and The Red Threads of Fortune
“The plots are taut, thrilling, gritty, violent, profane, magical—everything Hurley’s readers expect … Hurley has created one of the most engrossing environments in modern sf.”
“Series fans will savor original episodes featuring the battle-worn Nyx, which also serve as an introduction to new readers.”
“An excellent introduction for those wondering whether to pick up the original trilogy or a great way for those who have already read the previous books chronicling Nyx’s adventures to spend a bit more time in Nyx’s violent world.”
“This collection recaptures everything that made the Bel Dame Apocrypha such a memorable read and is a must for anyone who’s a fan of the original series. Apocalypse Nyx is also the perfect opportunity for newcomers to get a feel for the universe and its protagonists for the first time.”
“Highly recommended as a fun adult action-packed scifi with a scoundrel protagonist.”
“Those already familiar with Nyx and crew should enjoy these delightfully grimy and sweaty slices of their world. The newbies will have titles to add to their reading lists.”
“Compelling and fast-paced, gruesome and titillating at turns, presenting an approach to gender and sexuality that is appalling but fascinating.”
