Publisher's Summary

The gods walk again....
When Marine Corps pilot Jacob Merely crashes during a routine mission off the coast of Cyprus, he was sure it was game over.
After surviving the crash and pulling himself onto the sandy shores of a long-abandoned island, however, Jacob unwittingly stumbles headfirst into the ancient ruins of a dead city. Unfortunately, he also stumbles into an age-old battle between good and evil - and he is now its newest recruit.
The island once belonged to the Amazons, daughters of Ares, the God of War, and stood as the final bastion between the human world and the monstrosities of the Great Below. But Jacob’s arrival has awakened the old gods and disturbed the seal holding the ravaging darkness at bay.
Now, with the help of a sacred gem containing Ares’ power, Jacob must recreate the Amazonian defenders of humanity and fortify the island stronghold. And if he fails, Hades will unleash his army of the damned and the world of men will fall, giving rise to an age of walking nightmares.
"You had me at mythology. You sold me at the crafting, game mechanics, great characters, and serious action. From start to finish, War God's Mantle delivers. Do not miss this book!" (Harmon Cooper, author of Fantasy Online and The Feedback Loop series)

Original concept and great characters!

What a fantastic book! I loved the concept behind this book and found it to be a very original take on the LitRPG genre. The Greek mythology aspect was interesting and added a lot of depth to the story as my brain went back in time to remember all of the mythology I'd learned in school. This was an engaging listen and the time flew by. Before I knew it, I was at the end and hoping that James Hunter and Arron Crash have a sequel coming. I think my favourite part was the characters. They're very vivid and made me care about what happened to them. Love that in a book! A final comment on the narrator, Armen Taylor. I wondered how he was going to pull of narrating a bunch of Amazons. I was really pleased with how he represented them. He managed to convey the female voices very well and the Amazons came across as stately, even when they started to pick up modern vernacular. With quite a few Amazon voices to portray, Armen found a way to give them all a distinct voice. This is one of the most enjoyable books I've listened to in a while!
