Keene's novels have been translated into German, Spanish, Polish, Italian, French, Taiwanese, and many more. In addition to his own original work, Keene has written for media properties such as Doctor Who, The X-Files, Hellboy, Masters of the Universe, and Superman.

He has won numerous awards and honors, including a World Horror Grand Master award, two Bram Stoker awards, and a recognition from Whiteman A.F.B.

A prolific public speaker, Keene has delivered talks at conventions, college campuses, theaters, and inside Central Intelligence Agency headquarters in Langley, VA.

Format: Paperback
Originally presented, chapter by chapter, as a free novel on Brian Keene's website, this expanded edition of Earthworm Gods II: Deluge is simply fantastic. Picking up where Earthworm Gods (The Conqueror Worms)left off, we continue to follow Sarah and Kevin as they fight to survive the never ending rain and the terrifying creatures that come with it. Including other characters from both Earthworm Gods and Earthworm Gods: Selected Scenes From the End of the World, as well as new characters, Keene throws wave after wave of fresh, watery Hell at everyone.

In typical Keene fashion, there are characters you will love and those you will despise, but, either way, you shouldn't get too attached, as no one is safe. That's one of the things I love about Keene's writing; you never know who, if anyone, will survive.

The story moves at a brisk pace, moving from character to character, menace to menace, until everything converges in a white knuckle climax. There are a number of "cameos" from other of Keene's works, which are a nice bonus for those familiar with the author's other stories, but will not be distracting to those who are new to Mr. Keene's writing.

This story ties into Keene's "Labyrinth Mythos," but, with the other Earthworm books, stands on it's own.

I highly recommend this, and the other Earthworm books, to anyone looking for an exciting, horrifying story, great characters, and plain, old fashioned good writing.

I rarely give 5 stars, but Earthworm Gods II: Deluge is such an excellent novel. Brian Keene returns to the world of the first book, Earthworm Gods, and delivers a frightening sequel of terrifying supernatural creatures. Creatures like shark men, starfish men, giant worms, and an ever-present and pervasive fungus that destroys even mountains.

The reader is immediately introduced to a flooding world where it is constantly pouring rain. Everything is wet, muddy, or covered in a fungus. Keene weaves the horror of this world so well that even the fungus becomes a main character.
The prose is crisp and the pace swift as the characters battle to survive in a flooded and constantly raining world. The novel is well edited and I only saw two typos, and poor editing is one of my pet peeves. I loved the characters; they were realistic enough to me that I was sad when one would die and angry when others did not. The only character I felt was shortchanged in the book was Simon. It is not explained why he was tortured nor the motivations for what he did. Since I haven’t had the opportunity to read the first book yet, I imagine his character and circumstances were a carryover from there. Otherwise, Deluge reads just fine as a standalone novel. However, now I want to read the first novel.

I thoroughly enjoyed the book and recommend it. It was fun to read and some of the passages really gave me chills.

I received this book free of charge in ebook format in exchange for an honest review.

Yeah...this is how you write a frickin' apocalyptic thriller. No holds barred, taking no prisoners, just balls-to-the-walls action. Booyah!

I love the first Earthworm Gods book, but this one blew me away. So killer.

As much as I loved Earthworm Gods (it was actually called Conqueror Worms when I read it for the first time) I enjoyed the sequel even more.

Why?

Because Keene has come a long way since he wrote that first book. Many other great books followed, and, even more, the Keeneverse is much more fleshed out now. As someone who has read almost everything the guy has written, minus the really hard to get limited editions, I loved how he ties this fantastic story in with his other works.

I am a bit in awe of how massive (and consistent) his mythology has become. I read somewhere that someone has mapped it all out and keeps track of all the references and cross connections and I believe it. There are tie-ins to a dozen other works.

Ok, back to EG2.

Picks up right where EG (or CW if you read it a while ago) left off. We blend some old characters with a bunch of new ones and we are finally sat down and told exactly how bad the situation, which we already knew was really really bad, is. Bleak doesn’t begin to describe it. Magical forces are at work and it most likely is waaay too late to do much about it.

The creatures get nastier, the creepiness gets amped up. We rush head long through a melting world hoping against hope to reach some place or portal of safety that may not even exist.

How long can you tread water while trying not to think of what hungry thing is rushing up below you?

I've been a fan of Brian Keene since The Rising came out and have read everything of his to date, and enjoyed them all. But, man, Earthworm Gods II: Deluge tops them all. The story sucks you in from the beginning and keeps you glued to the final page. If you liked the first book then this one will blow your mind. Keene rules!

This is a very nice continuation to Conquerer Worms, giving us a more behind the scenes look at some of the other characters and places. I would recommend to any fan of Brian Keene.
