Apocalypse Nyx

by Kameron Hurley

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.


“The plots are taut, thrilling, gritty, violent, profane, magical—everything Hurley’s readers expect.”


“I thoroughly enjoyed the original trilogy and I actually think that the stories are even better at novella length.”


“You’re going to love Nyx [...] she makes Han Solo look like a Boy Scout.”


“It’s a vividly drawn world, to be sure. In its hopes for and expectations of humanity, it carries a raw emotional punch.”
