Yron the moon god died, but now he's reborn in the false king's son. His human father wanted to kill him, but his mother sacrificed her life to save him. He'll return one day to claim his birthright. He'll change your life.

He'll change everything.

Smiler's Fair: the great moving carnival where any pleasure can be had, if you're willing to pay the price. They say all paths cross at Smiler's Fair. They say it'll change your life. For five people, Smiler's Fair will change everything.

In a land where unimaginable horror lurks in the shadows, where the very sun and moon are at war, five people - Nethmi, the orphaned daughter of a murdered nobleman, who in desperation commits an act that will haunt her forever. Dae Hyo, the skilled warrior, who discovers that a lifetime of bravery cannot make up for a single mistake. Eric, who follows his heart only to find that love exacts a terrible price. Marvan, the master swordsman, who takes more pleasure from killing than he should. And Krish, the humble goatherd, with a destiny he hardly understands and can never accept - will discover just how much Smiler's Fair changes everything.

MEDIA REVIEWS
I owe Rebecca Levene my career. She's always been a creative powerhouse, and I'm excited by what she's going to do as a writer of epic fantasy. She should be on everyone's radar as one of the great new writers of the genre. -- Paul Cornell, author of London Falling
All I know is that Rebecca Levene has written the most stunning first volume epic fantasy since Game of Thrones. It's a little bit grimdark, a little bit epic, and a whole lot of incredible. If George R.R. Martin wrote The Night Circus, Smiler's Fair would be the result. Go. Buy. It. * Staffer's Book Review *
Smiler's Fair is the epic fantasy I've been waiting for - riveting, compelling and adventurous. * Pornokitsch *
Fans of either Abraham or Abercrombie-fans of fantasy full stop, in fact-will find lots to like in Smiler's Fair. Its setting, its narrative, its characters-unlikeable as they are-all impress immensely, developed as they are with depth and discerning detail. In truth, the only complaint I'd make about the book is that there isn't more of it. * Tor.com *
We can judge other-world fantasy by the extent we want to return to it - and I can't wait to book my ticket back to the next episode of this outstanding, multi-stranded debut. * Daily Mail *
Little by little, as the narrative twists and turns, Levene reveals the depth and complexity of her created world and leaves the reader eager for the next instalment. * Guardian *
This book is a perfect blend of epic and 'gritty' fantasy, combining the best aspects of the two genres. * Mithril Wisdom *
The first volume of The Hollow Gods is consistently surprising, packing in plenty of character development, fast and brutal action. * SFX *

“A world of vice and violence!”

Smiler's Fair is a brilliantly executed and immersive debut that drew me in so deeply that I didn't want to come up for air. Filled with a diverse and immense collection of jaded characters and dripping in... More

“Something wicked this way comes...”

Smiler's Fair really took me by surprise. Rebecca Levene has created a world complete with a fully formed mythos and history in place. Creatures unknown even to the main characters have their own ancestry - a... More

“Intriguing debut fantasy”

From the beguiling premise, to the darkly brutal, yet consistently magical tone of Levine's writing, there's a distinctly original feel to this debut novel. It's not perfect - there are pacing issues,... More
