"Thrilling, bloody, and fun."
– Looking for a Good Book
“James Moore has become one of my favorite writers.”
– Adventures Fantastic
“Seriously, 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. He proceeds to deepen it to a gripping degree throwing in mindbogglingly twisted horror elements.”
– Smorgasbord Fantasia
“A wild adventure with plenty of action and bloodshed and just as with the first book, we have a conflict on a grand scale – mortal men against the gods – which keeps the stakes high and exciting.”
– Looking for a Good Book
“The novel once again demonstrates why James A Moore is at the forefront of the modern masters of sword and sorcery.”
– Book Wraiths
“Moore’s creativity shines through with a new world, new pantheon, new monsters, new nations and continents. The characters live and breathe and pop from the page - often with swords swinging.”
– Paul’s Scribblings
"Gripping, horrific, and unique, James Moore continues to be a winner, whatever genre he's writing in. Well worth your time."
– Seanan McGuire, New York Times bestselling author of the InCryptid and Toby Daye series
"I found The Last Sacrifice to be highly engaging, magical with a distinct grimdark feel and the world herein is richly imagined and cleverly wrought and brought to life. I can’t wait to read the sequel and I am now also eager to check out the other works by this author. I highly recommend this book to all lovers of fantasy."
– Cover 2 Cover
"Moore has laid the groundwork for a trilogy that promises to be loaded with terrifically grim fantasy storytelling. I might even call it epic. There is a lot of swift, merciless violence in this book, mingled with an undercurrent of very welcome, if very dark, humor. All of it together takes me back to what made me giddy about epic fantasy way back when. I’d say I’m happy to be back, but I’m not sure that’s quite the right word for a book packed with this much violent incident. Let’s say instead that I’m bloody satisfied."
- Rich Rosell for the B&N Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog

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 and challenged this sacrificial offering to the Grakhul and he has continued to challenge the gods at every turn. What's the worst that will happen ...? The death promised by the sacrifice? Brogan and his allies build an army to fight off whatever the gods send. But the gods aren't too happy and it could mean Armageddon.
Moore delivers this book in short bursts - hitting the reader with a series of literary rabbit punches instead of looking for one knock-out punch. Each chapter is told from multiple points of view. Normally I don't care for this too much, but Moore has included a large cast of characters, made each of them unique in some way, but best of all, he has me liking most of them so that I <em>want</em> to read about each one.
Moore also finds just the right balance of action, drama, and humor, often using the different character/story lines to provide the reader with the needed boost of humor/action/drama at just the right time.
This is still a wild adventure with plenty of action and bloodshed and just as with the first book, we have a conflict on a grand scale - mortal men against the gods - which keeps the stakes high and exciting. But it is the immediacy of the present characters - their journeys and squabbles - that draw us in and have us turning pages.
Moore is clearly a talented story-teller. The action and characters here are throwbacks to Robert E. Howard and Fritz Leiber and the epic-ness of the story is not unlike Tolkien. It's all-around excitement.
And for all that there is one small issue with this.... This is not a complete story. You MUST plan to buy the entire series to get the full story. This book doesn't end so much as it builds a bridge to the next book. Do I want to read it? Absolutely! But do I like being suckered in to it this way? I do not. I'll buy a book based on my enjoyment of reading an author, not because s/he left a story unfinished.
Looking for a good book? Fallen Gods by James A. Moore is the second book in The Tides of War series - and that's important to know. It's thrilling, bloody, and fun, but you'll really need to know what happened in the first book to get the most from this volume.
I received a digital copy of this book from the publisher, through Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review.
