Hank Jensen doesn’t believe in monsters—not the kind Stephen King writes about at any rate.
Hank is one of New York’s best criminal profilers, and he loves his job. But when he meets the Bristol Butchers, all that changes. They are a pair of psychopaths—cannibals. He chases them in spite of the disabling curse they cast on him, in spite of their threats to his family, and when he catches up to them, his horror begins. They claim to be gods—immortal, omnipotent—and they change into monsters before his eyes. Unable to stop them, the battle leaves him sick, despondent, broken. His career is at an end. His only respite is his family.
Years later, the Butchers return to make good on their threats. When his family disappears on Halloween night, Hank decides his time for doing nothing is at an end.
He must chase them to places he thought existed only in myth. He knows they have the power to raise monsters, mythical beings—even the dead—to block his path. How can he, a disabled mortal, overcome gods? How will he overcome his disability, his doubts?

"If you liked The Dark Tower, if you like the writing of Stephen King, then read Errant Gods. It is good, no, it is great! It is powerful, and it is writing of the highest level. I never thought I would be able to read a writer that wrote in that style of moving in and out of dimensions and describes pure evil as well as Stephen King does. I was wrong. Erik Henry Vick is the real thing, and I look forward to reading him for just as long a time as I have been reading Stephen King. Two pages into Errant Gods I was blown away by the sheer power of the writing. The beauty and style used to describe a conversation between two obviously evil people, driven only by their primal desires, is beautiful in its straightforward simplicity. I usually review a book by stating which literary element I feel is its strongest point, but I am at a loss now. What do you say when all the elements are above and beyond anything you have read in a very long time?" --Ray Simmons, Readers' Favorite Reviews
"Comparable to Stephen King’s [Dark Tower series] (which is referenced in the novel) in terms of genre-blending originality and sheer creative courage, Vick’s latest is a page-turning storytelling tour de force." --Blueink Review
"Errant Gods Blood of Isir is a potential classic in the making and surely will be enjoyed among readers for generations to come. Hints of an inevitable sequel are provided upon the rising plot escalation. Upon the final pages reading audiences will be making their reservation in flight among The Errant Gods" --Dave Gammon, HorrorNews.net
"An audacious novel with a hero that braves both mythical creatures and a disability." --Kirkus Reviews
"Did you ever care about a character so much that you feel their pain, sweat for them as you read, feel the stinging tears in your eyes, or does your heart palpitate as you fear for what might happen to them? Erik Henry Vick makes you experience this and more and there is no way you can stop feeling for the protagonist, a three-dimensional character who is genuinely flawed and whose humanity reflects a lot of what most readers know. The plot is cunningly done and the pacing is fast. Errant Gods features a gritty investigation, a powerful setting, a tale of horror with a very unpredictable and satisfying ending. You won’t put it down." --Divine Zape, Readers' Favorite Reviews
"...by tapping into the rich literary vein of Viking myth and folklore [Vick delivers] a narrative that’s both original and highly entertaining, but it’s in protagonist Hank Jensen that Vick really hits his home run." --BookViral
