Great read !!!

Blood of a Fallen God is non stop rollercoaster ride of life and death. Will you follow the god of creation or the god of death. Who can be trusted? No one is who they seem. I don't want to give any spoilers. The characters are well developed and bring such emotion to this story. This is a MUST READ!!! From the moment I started reading this great story I could not put it down. The Narrator did such a great job I could feel the emotions the characters felt. Loved Blood of a follow God. I could not put it down. The story, the characters- wow simply just great. Again a Must Read !!!

Excellent Epic Fantasy

I really enjoyed this book. The narration was wonderful and the story itself was engrossing and detailed. This was my first from this author and I was so pleased with the character development (it progressed as they went along, just like real people) and the story world. There was lots of action and lots of traveling. A true epic fantasy. I'd recommend this for all fans of epic fantasy or sword and sorcery type stories and I can't wait for the next book in the series!

Character development over action

I don't often read epic fantasy anymore. When I was reading it, the genre was called Sword and Sorcery. I tired of it because the character development was usually very rudimentary and the action, sometimes with no purpose, was paramount.

I am happy to say that the author puts believable characters before action. There is action, but it isn't added just for the sake of having action. It is there to move the story along. Perhaps there's a bit too much angst and uncertainty from both the young male leads, but they are young and grow into their roles towards the finale of the story.

The book is perhaps a little long, especially in the middle. But once you get past all the traveling the story moves along again. It's worth the effort.

This is a series, but the book nicely rounds out the first quest of the saga and doesn't leave the reader dissatisfied. But there are enough hints of future trials to leave a curiosity to know what happens next. I will be looking for the next in the series.

Epic Fantasy

This is a tale of opposing gods who want to return to their world and each god has chosen a champion. The tale unfolds as each champion works to aid their god into returning and details the struggles that each champion must endure to accomplish that task. The plot thickens as one chosen champion takes control over the opposing champion's family member and the action continues to rev up from there. I found the book to be very enjoyable and recommend it to all readers.
I enjoyed Eric Bryan Moore's narration of the tale. I was given a free copy of the audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

One Man Can

A great story & performance. The characters grab you & you feel you are with them every step. A book that keeps you wanting to get to the end and once there, wanting for more. Cannot wait for the next book.

Fallen Gods Rising

Epic fantasy well written and narrated. YA-ish characters but with good decision-making, courage and determination (read no petty YA crap). A destiny forced upon our protagonist and his cousin runs the full course over the book's (a little too long) journey. The supporting cast is diverse and well-rounded. The Bad Guys are BAD, prevail often, and in the end...No, no spoiler! ;-)

Fresh tale on a stale genre

Overall very good book. Fast paced, well conceived world, good bit of mystery, and the right amount of darkness without going full Weaveworld. Personally I'd love to see more development in the side characters, especially the romantic interest, she was a little flat and didn't seem to truly want anything more than proximity to the main character. I look forward to the rest of the cycle.

Action past, fast paced from start to finish

This book is really worth the read if you like sci-fi. Great plot, strong characters. Right up there with the hobbit, game of thrones etc. Think this author deserves huge success. Well written, very enjoyable. Can’t wait for the next instalment?

An Epic Tale

As the plot twisted and turned and the core characters evolved to reveal themselves in all their glory (or for some, horror) I was drawn more and more into the story. When I was given a review copy, I knew it was important to be honest about my feelings for the book, in any review, so I was nervous when I first heard the accents given to Will and his cousin, as I found them distracting - for example, in an early chapter, a crystal’s “facet” sounded oddly like “faucet”. However, once the characters settled in and a wealth of other players were introduced and each made distinctly and clearly different from the next, I just forgot about the accent and settled in to enjoy the book - which I did. Hats off to Eric Bryan Moore for making all the characters come to life and be instantly recognisable when they spoke. I love epic story lines like this and I would not have been surprised if this had been a trilogy of cliff-hangers rather than a very satisfying book with a begining, middle and, most importantly, an end. If the rest of this series can live up to the promise of Book One, I will thoroughly enjoy following it. There are a great many possible paths to travel that the characters still left at the finale might choose to take, good or evil - it looks like it will be an interesting journey. Look out Terry Goodkind, I think you may have some new competition.
