Summary:

A young man descends into Purgatory to save his wife and unborn child in this gorgeous, illustrated 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.

    Was a great book, thoroughly enjoyed it! Good mixture of sci-fi and real world. Enjoyed the material on the "Old Gods" and had many twists in the story.

    Wonderful descent into a world that shouldn't seem real yet manages to do so, whilst retaining many loved elements of this genre of writing. This was my first of Brom's reads, and whilst I have started a few others, cannot get into them like Lost Gods. Other reviewers have started the human characters are a bit flat - whilst this is mostly true, the interactions between them and the vivid reality of the Gods and other creatures allow you to not care about this small fact. Listening to the story allows you to create the world instantly for yourself, whilst keeping an eye on Brom's beautiful drawings. If you want a bit of non-reality, get into this!
