Lost Gods is like RobertJohnson singing ghostly blues on the shores of a haunted river in Hell. It'slike Dante played out in muggy rural graveyards and the depths of Purgatory onthe eve of a demonic war. Lost Gods is an adventure tale and a mythic odyssey.It's the kind of story lovers whisper in stolen cars burning rubber from thisworld down to the very edge of the Abyss. --Richard Kadrey, New YorkTimes bestselling author of the Sandman Slim series

From the Back Cover
A young man descends into purgatory to save his wife and unborn child in this gorgeous, illustrated tale of wonder and terror from the mind of master storyteller and acclaimed artist Brom.
Fresh out of jail and eager to start a new life, Chet Moran and his pregnant wife, Trish, leave town to begin again. But an ancient evil is looming, and what seems like a safe haven may not be all it appears . . .
Snared and murdered by a vile, arcane horror, Chet quickly learns that pain and death are not unique to the living. Now the lives and very souls of his wife and unborn child are at stake. To save them, he must journey into the bowels of purgatory in search of a sacred key promised to restore the natural order of life and death. Alone, confused, and damned, Chet steels himself against the unfathomable terrors awaiting him as he descends into death’s stygian blackness.
In Lost Gods, Brom’s gritty and visceral prose takes us on a haunting, harrowing journey into the depths of the underworld. Thrust into a realm of madness and chaos, where ancient gods and demons battle over the dead, and where cabals of souls conspire to overthrow their masters, Chet plays a dangerous game, risking eternal damnation to save his family.

Friends, this book is dark (which should come as no surprise). I was just settling in for a certain kind of horror tale, when he went and, well, threw everything to hell! Things got crazy FAST, and I was left following Chet through one of the places I find the absolute scariest. Seriously, who doesn’t cringe in terror at the thought of purgatory?! And it was even more imaginative, diabolical, and painful than I could have imagined — which sounds just about right for a Brom novel. Tee-hee!
I have to admit that my favorite parts were the ones where we encountered these titular Lost Gods. And the illustrations were a wonderful accompaniment, helping me immerse into the story even further! It still amazes me how Brom can weave a story so full of fantasy and darkness, but still center it on characters who stubbornly maintain tenacity, optimism, and/or are just gluttons for punishment (haha!). Sheesh, I don’t even know if I’m making any sense here, but I hope I’m giving you an idea of the magnitude and scope of this novel. It is VAST, it is DARK, it is TERRIBLY WONDERFUL.
Extremely dark, but I enjoyed the many personas of the gods and their strong egos. Modern day Dante's inferno. Parallels to Creatures of Light and Darkness by Zelazny. Enjoyable read and worthy of my bookshelf!
The reason I rated it 4 stars is because Brom's The Child Thief is still my favorite.
