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.

Gaiman, Konrath, Stan Nicholls, Fortschen

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.

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.

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.

R.C. Cola does a great job.

Interesting...a good listen

An interesting take on purgatory, the afterlife, etc. mixed in with old Gods and new Gods. It's quite a dynamic with all of those aspects intertwining. There's mythology, modern religion, revenge, love, just about everything in there. Brom does a good job of weaving it all together and making an entertaining story out of it. And as always, RC Bray does a wonderful job in his narration.
