The Last Sacrifice
A veteran warrior defies the gods when his entire family is selected for sacrifice in The Last Sacrifice by James A. Moore.
For as long as anyone can remember, the gods have ruled with one simple demand: sacrifices. Immortal servants travel the land, select candidates, and leave behind a heavy gold coin. Brogan McTyre returns home to find four such coins on his doorstep. Brogan gathers an army and storms the gods’ stronghold to retrieve his family. Denying the gods their meal, Brogan sets in motion a series of events that may lead to the gods unleashing demons, wiping out the populace, or just plain eating the world.
The Last Sacrifice is dark and violent with no punches pulled. The worldbuilding is epic in scope but focuses on a select few individuals to flesh out the story. All of their stories share one common thread: a lack of hope. The odds are stacked against them with even the full might of the gods brought to bear. There is no glimmer of success on the horizon. And yet, none of the characters lay down to die. The very planet shakes and crumbles, unstoppable monstrosities nip at their heels, and death surrounds and fills the air with darkness. Brandishing tarnished weapons, covered in gore, this eclectic band of misfits roars into the encroaching darkness.
After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
