Publisher's Summary

A young man descends into purgatory to save his wife and unborn child in this 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.

With 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.

    "Great story"

    From the start to the finish I really enjoyed this book. Yes the story was readable quite often but even so very good.

    Story
    "Gaiman, Konrath, Stan Nicholls, Fortschen"

    BLOOD HONEY
    The first hours are very entertaining and very much Brom's dark craziness. Brom's characters are usually from the seedier part of town. The children ghosts are scary and weird. The beginning of Purgatory is exciting and strange. When your dead and they cut your head off, your still conscious. That is where Konrath comes in, there is a lot of heads, arms and legs getting cut off. The book never goes on to Hell, we just hear it is terrible and I am pretty sure that will happen in a sequel.

    I MIGHT BE FOOLISH, BUT I'M NOT A FOOL
    Those who read American Gods by Gaiman will recognize the Old Gods being forgotten and losing their powers. That is what is happening in this story.

    EVERYBODY PUT YOUR DICKS BACK IN YOUR PANTS
    The main part of the book reminded me of Fortschen's Lost Regiment series and Stan Nicholls' Orc Wars. Their is a rebel bunch lead by a Confederate who are rebelling against the old gods. This leads to lots of fight scenes such as in Nicholls' Orc Wars. There is a lot of traveling through Purgatory, but not really finding anything new. I did enjoy the game part of the story, but the hours of fighting and traveling bored me. The ending was good.

    "Excellent!"

    RC Bray could read a phone book and make it sound riveting. And this was no phone book. Great story! A wonderful blend of myth and the paranormal. I couldn't stop listening.

    "Generally not my genre."

    I bought this Audible because of RC Bray. He makes a mediocre story good and one of his best performances. This was actually very well written and I will probably listen to another Brom.

    "Amazing"

    Brom is without a doubt a truly talented author and artist. This story is another unique journey into the afterlife and hell. From the start it pulls you in from the very start. The work really reminds me of a fine mix of American Gods By Neil Gaiman and God's Demon by Wayne Barlow. I can't say enough good things about this story. I'm going to admit that it's a must have.

    Loved this book! Great story, great narration, all around a thoroughly enjoyable listen. I will look for more by both Brom and RC Bray. Would love to see this become a movie/mini series too, the world was just so darn interesting!!
