recent read; THE LAST SACRIFICE
THE LAST SACRIFICE by James A. Moore
THE LAST SACRIFICE is the first novel of a (new) grimdark trilogy from James A. Moore. Moore again displays the chops that make his writing a standout. Dripping with blood, horror, and an array of moral gray, we are plunged into a world where dark gods demand human sacrifice. When mercenary Brogan McTyre decides the price of losing his entire family is too high, the world is plunged into Armageddon as Brogan battles the monstrous servants of the gods and sets his sights on killing the gods themselves, if no other options are available.
Not any easy mission. Certainly not any easier when Five Kingdoms have put a price on your head to stop the end of the world.
This series, The Tides of War, is apart from Moore's previous Seven Forges series. Once again, 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.
The sequel, FALLEN GODS, was just recently released and I cannot wait to dive into the dark - again.
