A special illustrated edition of American Gods by bestselling storytelling legend, Neil Gaiman. A dark and gripping epic that will thrill Games of Thrones devotees and Terry Pratchett fans alike. Illustrations by celebrated artist Daniel Egneus.

If you are to survive, you must believe.

Shadow Moon has served his time. But hours before his release from prison, his beloved wife is killed in a freak accident. Dazed, he boards a plane home where he meets the enigmatic Mr Wednesday, who professes both to know Shadow and to be king of America.

Together they embark on a profoundly strange road trip across the USA, encountering a kaleidoscopic cast of characters along the way. Yet all around them a storm threatens to break. The war has already begun, an epic struggle for the very soul of America, and Shadow is standing squarely in its path.

A fantastic novel... runs as precisely as clockwork, but reads as smoothly as silk or warm chocolate - The Times on AMERICAN GODS

Gaiman hardwires his comedy of misrule with a crackpot energy that, when successfully channelled, lights up the imagination - The Sunday Times on ANANSI BOYS

Possibly Gaiman's most lyrical, scary and beautiful work yet. It's a tale about childhood for grown-ups, a fantasy rooted in the darkest corners of reality - Independent on Sunday on THE OCEAN AT THE END OF THE LANE

Gaiman has written a book that reads like a half-remembered fairy-tale from childhood. It has the easy flow of a story already heard, deeply known, and slots perfectly into the canon of British magical fiction - New Statesman
