TIDES OF WAR reviews

Review

'Thrilling, bloody, and fun.' - Looking for a Good Book; 'Seriously, what a phenomenal second book!' - Smorgasbord Fantasia; 'James Moore has become one of my favorite writers.' - Adventures Fantastic; 'Fallen Gods was quite enjoyable, I look forward to the conclusion, and I hope to see these ravenous gods be sacrificed for the good of all. 4 out of 5 stars' - Shelf Inflicted; 'Seriously, what a phenomenal second book! Everything that was so delightfully dark about The Last Sacrifice, James just wraps those thorny vines tighter around the plot. He proceeds to deepen it to a gripping degree throwing in mindbogglingly twisted horror elements.' - Smorgasbord Fantasia; 'A wild adventure with plenty of action and bloodshed and just as with the first book, we have a conflict on a grand scale - mortal men against the gods - which keeps the stakes high and exciting.' - Looking for a Good Book; 'I am so ready for the next book!' Seriously, the next one is promising to be glorious. If the world is actually going to end, it ain't going down without a fight and I want to read that fight!' --Purple Owl Reviews

Praise for The Last Sacrifice 'Gripping, horrific, and unique, James Moore continues to be a winner, whatever genre he's writing in. Well worth your time.' - Seanan McGuire, New York Times bestselling author of the InCryptid and Toby Daye series; 'With The Last Sacrifice, James A. Moore has triumphed yet again, delivering a modern sword and sorcery tale to delight old and new fans of the genre. With its intriguing premise, stellar cast of characters, and flavorful horror elements, this is damn good stuff.' - Bookwraiths; 'This was a very good read.' - Purple Owl Reviews; 'Epic fantasy at its best.' - Amanda J Spedding; 'Grimdark as f*ck! So in a word ''GREAT''. - The Blogin' Hobgoblin; 'I liked The Last Sacrifice a great deal. I've always enjoyed Moore's work and don't see that changing anytime soon. He just keeps getting better. Check this one out and see.' - Adventures Fantastic; 'What's Moore to say? People fighting Gods? Bring it! This is a great addition to James A. Moore's line up.' - The Book Plank; 'I love it. This is a story that turns the genre story arc on its head, mixes up the motives of heroes and villains, and muddies the waters of divine intervention. A fantastic, surprising start to a major new series.' - Beauty in Ruins; 'The Last Sacrifice is a solid start to the sordid grim-dark tale documenting the end of a bleak violent world.' - Smorgasbord Fantasia; 'I found The Last Sacrifice to be highly engaging, magical with a distinct grimdark feel and the world herein is richly imagined and cleverly wrought and brought to life. I can't wait to read the sequel and I am now also eager to check out the other works by this author. I highly recommend this book to all lovers of fantasy.' - Cover 2 Cover; 'I'd recommend this and I'll be keeping an eye out for the next one. More evil Grakhul/He-Kisshi action please Mr Moore!' - Ribaldry's Books; 'I was just turning pages as fast as my eyes could devour the words.' - On A Dark Stormy Review; 'Moore has laid the groundwork for a trilogy that promises to be loaded with terrifically grim fantasy storytelling. I might even call it epic. There is a lot of swift, merciless violence in this book, mingled with an undercurrent of very welcome, if very dark, humor. All of it together takes me back to what made me giddy about epic fantasy way back when. I'd say I'm happy to be back, but I'm not sure that's quite the right word for a book packed with this much violent incident. Let's say instead that I'm bloody satisfied.' --Rich Rosell for the B&N Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog

Illegal Downloads

Here I quote Christopher Golden 

"A reminder.
If you download pirated copies of an author's work, you are a THIEF. You are stealing food from that author's table, and from the mouths of that author's children. You are a THIEF.
There is no excuse. It's no different from any other sort of theft, no different from breaking into my home and taking the food from my refrigerator, or stealing my computer, or my wedding ring.
No different.



He is, as is usually the case, absolutely correct in his statement. 



That's Chris on the left , me on the right and the amazingly talented Kasey Lansdale dead center.
