The gods are angry and only one man can fend off their apocalypse in the brutal sequel to The Last Sacrifice.

Brogan McTyre and his compatriots are wanted, dead or alive. Preferably alive, so they can be sacrificed to the raging gods. All they can do is hire more mercenaries and turn them into a fearsome army. But warriors aren't enough when the gods bring Armageddon to the

"The gods took my family from me! They deserve nothing but death and destruction!"

"Tell your gods I'm coming for them! Tell your gods that I'll see them dead for what they did!"

Brogan McTyre and his friends are wanted alive. The gods demand these men be sacrificed or they'll end the world. Brogan has other ideas. Thanks to the help of his friend's wife who studied under the Galeans, he has learned there is a way to kill the gods. Brogan is determined to find this weapon and kill the gods.

Originally reviewed at Bookwraiths.

Fallen Gods continues the fast, chaotic, and horrific tale of a world close to total destruction. James A. Moore taking his modern sword and sorcery epic upward and outward, exploring this sprawling land, tightening the hopelessness around our protagonists’ hearts, deepening the gloom and doom, and stoking the flames of this devilish concoction of vengeful gods, devious demons, inescapable Undying, and a world-ending flood to a fever pitch, leaving humankind de

James A. Moore had his work cut out for him coming off the incredible Seven Forges series and its deft blend of perfect world/culture building, wild-plotting, and incredibly brutal action. But guess what? He just keeps stepping up to the plate and hitting home runs. Fallen Gods, book 2 in the Tides of War series, spreads deeply thematic conflict through every page and takes the very simple idea of one man against the world, steeps it in absolutely brutal and relentless action, and elevates it to ...more

An excellent sequel cackling with energy and vicious action. The story becomes more complex and epic in scope, as the author integrates the mythology and events along with the plotline.

The worldbuilding is superb as ever. The cataclysmic atmosphere is vividly portrayed by Moore, and, as it progresses it takes a brilliant grimdark tone. The world of gods and demons, magic and exotic creatures and races are honed like the edges of a sharp blade. Moore captures the chaotic situation and the sense

This review originally published in Looking For a Good Book. Rated 4.0 of 5

So... I read and reviewed the first book in this series not too long ago and enjoyed it enough to jump right in to this volume.

Author James A. Moore picks up where he left off, which is helpful to those of us who've read the first book (but will it be confusing to those who are starting with this volume?). Brogan McTyre is a wanted man. He and his family were chosen by the gods to be sacrificed, but Brogan broke custom an

The only question to be asked is how this has only 119 ratings and 18 reviews? My mind is blown. I bought this book at a discount store not knowing it was book 2 in a series. For a while, it sat around until I decided to order Book 1 "The last Sacrifice" from a used bookseller.
I am completely and utterly amazed by the story, the plot, the characters, and all of the twists and turns this takes.
If you are looking for a fantastic, dark, and exciting fantasy series that won't take you years to rea

I am writing my full review for my blog but I will say now that it was nice to see the characters get more fleshed out in this installment. Book one was so fast paced I hardly got to meet anyone before I was at the end.
I received a Free copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.
Pet peeve - it's a mass market paperback, and the book doesn't match The Last Sacrifice. Shrinks the cover so one can't sink in to the amazing artwork on the cover.

Other than that, it's another great read. It is busy with different stories, but the overall plot moves along pretty good. Terrific ending leading I. To the next book.

What a phenomenal second book - Everything that was so delightfully dark about The Last Sacrifice, James just wraps those thorny vines tighter around the plot, deepens it to a gripping degree heating things up to a feverish pitch - the irascible gods, the vile Undying, the demons, the Grakhul, the abominable slavers, the harrowed fugitives, Marked Men - they are all back for another round as the world around them is crumbling with the rising flood waters, the raving madness and apocalyptic storm ...more

*Free copy for an honest review.

I remember finishing up the first book and thinking that the author did a great job of summarizing the various plot lines and setting the stage for the second book while keeping it all interesting. I was pleased to find he continued this trend with the beginning of this second book. At no time during the book did I feel like I was getting an exposition dump. That did make it a little difficult to get back into the minds of the characters, but ultimately ended up m

Moore humanizes his main character while introducing several new and interesting players, to weave an intriguing tapestry of ideas. His world came alive to me in this installment, and I enjoyed it all the more for that fact.

I received a copy of Fallen Gods from Simon & Schuster Australia to review.

Rating of 3.5 to 4.

Those looking for a fast-paced action fantasy adventure to really get the blood pumping should prepare themselves for Fallen Gods, the latest novel from one of the leading authors in dark fantasy, James A Moore.

Brogan McTyre, former soldier of the Kingdom of Stennis Brae, is a damned man. After the Grakhul, the servants of his world’s cruel gods, took his entire family, Brogan risked everything to save

3.5 / 5 ✪

In The Last Sacrifice, Brogan McTyre failed to save his kin, but in trying managed to doom the world. Fallen Gods finds him and Harper Ruttket trying to fix what he’s done, chasing after myths and legends of ancient, fallen gods in an attempt to kill the ones destroying the land. Meanwhile Myridia and the other Grakhul women rush to farther lands where they hope to appease the gods, thus saving the world. Niall, Tully and the other escapees still flee from the undying, though gradually

Confusing and lacking

Not a good effort here, Moore's previous works have at least been an enjoyable read. This was a confusing slog that I couldn't wait to end. No part two for me thank you.
