Really great read. They way Brom puts it all together really makes sense. The characters are likable and well developed. I highly recommend this. It's tastefully dark and ominous. Really makes you think about what it would be like to go through such an experience and in away it feels like you are there.

Brom is an author of unimaginable skill. The stories he weaves, along with detailed illustrations, forge real life and nightmare into an amalgam of epic proportions. This is my second read and I am anxious to get my hands on more. Lost Gods is not only a voyage, it is a soulful experience. Chet Moran is freshly released from jail and on a mission to win back the heart of his girl Trish. Two things are standing in the way of his true happiness: Trish's father, a very influential judge in the town of Jasper and his foolish past. But when they decide to flee, looking to hole up at Chet's grandmother'shideaway home, there's an accident. Add that he's later killed by an ancient horror and you have the beginning of Lost Gods. The story puts Chet on a mission in, of all places, Purgatory. He isn't waiting idly for a spiritual decision either, he has a pure purpose where everything's at stake-- not just his soul. A war is about to erupt in a land where grisly creatures seek to end a soul's existence and gods are itching to be remembered. I love big books and this one is definitely BIG. Near 500-pages, Lost Gods puts you through trial, after dreadful trial. Chet begins as loser, hoping for change, but becomes the embodiment of a hero. That's the sort of story I love. The tale isn't on Chet alone either; there are gods stewing in Purgatory. They're all looking for supplicants, days of old, and maybe a sacrifice or two. Lastly, there are factions looking to free Purgatory- as if it can be a good place for souls to wander. All Chet wants is to save his family... Lost Gods is a strong story, laced with love, family, painful deaths, gore and betrayal. It's multi-faceted, rich in lore and all the negative aspects of faith and religion. It's dark and so fast-paced, you never receive an inkling of boredom. Purgatory is so fleshed out, you see it- you experience it! Any reader and lover of horror will find a great appreciation in Brom's words, as well as the illustrations that bring it all to life. Many times I found myself looking back at the pictures, seeing what the characters saw, making the read a legendary undertaking. I'm so grateful to Monster Librarian for sending this novel to me. I highly suggest checking out Lost Gods and other books by Brom. I'm a fan now. Cheers to you; I'm off to the next read! http://bit.ly/LostGodsNovel
