The Unspoken Name by A.K. Larkwood []



Promised as a sacrifice to an unforgiving death-god, Csorwe is certain of only one thing: when and how she will die. But when a traveler appears on the day of her sacrifice and offers her a job instead, she accepts it, becoming a spy and bodyguard for a mysterious and unpredictable wizard.
This is a surprising (and surprisingly funny) fantasy debut packed with gory action scenes, magic battles, and unique and complex worldbuilding reminiscent of the epic fantasy of the 70’s and 80’s. Our protagonist is a grey-skinned, two-tusked warrior who can’t stay out of trouble, and her adventures alongside her ragtag group of wizards, priestesses, and scientists make the pages fly by.
