Orbit 2024 New Voice: Red Sonja: Consumed by Gail Simone

Red Sonja


18th July 2024


Bestselling comic book author and screenwriter Gail Simone makes her novel-writing debut with Red Sonja: Consumed – an epic fantasy novel featuring a cult icon: the red-headed barbarian warrior known as ‘the she devil with a sword’.


It’s time to rage, drink and fight like a barbarian! Red Sonja, the iconic She-Devil with a Sword, will meet a new generation of readers in this action-packed epic fantasy by legendary comic book writer Gail Simone, making her novel-writing debut.

Hot-headed, charismatic and always unapologetically herself, Red Sonja, the ferocious She-Devil and barbarian of Hyrkania has never concerned herself with the consequences of her actions. She’s pursued all her desires, from treasure, to drink, to the companionship of bedfellows. She’s fought those who deserve it (and sometimes those who didn’t). And she’s never looked back.

But when rumours start bubbling up from her homeland – rumours of unknown horrors emerging from the ground and pulling their unsuspecting victims to their deaths – she realises she may have to return to the country that abandoned her. Sonja must finally do the only thing that ever scared her: confront her past.
