Product Description

Product Description

Semifinalist, 2013 Kindle Book Reviews Sci-Fi/Fantasy Book of the Year! If you loved OUTLANDER, you'll love BLACK SEA GODS.

The fish have disappeared from the sea. The animals have vanished from the land. All humanity, and even the gods, tremble under the specter of a pending cataclysm. The demigod, Fu Xi, races home from the edge of the world bringing news of a looming god war, but finds his land under attack by monsters he once called his children. He discovers a terrible curse has been cast, one intended to destroy the gods and all life. To his shock, Fu Xi learns that mankind's last hope rests solely on him, a simple fisherman, and a banished slave girl.

Beset on all sides by ancient foes, both immortal and mundane, Fu Xi knows he must act quickly and races west to rescue the saviors. Unaware of the real doom that awaits, Aizarg the fisherman and his party begin a perilous journey across a dangerous steppe. They seek the last of the Narim, the legendary Black Sea Gods, who hold the key to their salvation. Leading them is the rescued slave girl Sarah, the only one among them who knows the path to the land of the god-men.

Over seven days, the defining struggle of gods and humans begins under the onslaught of a powerful force whose true objective and origin remain a mystery. Fu Xi knows the secret to victory resides in the fisherman and the slave girl, whose lives he must protect, even if it means the rest of the world must perish!

***

BLACK SEA GODS transforms recently re-discovered Black Sea legends, possibly the root of all Eurasian mythology, with ancient Chinese mythology to create an unprecedented epic fantasy series. Find out more about this series at www.blackseagods.com

5.0 out of 5 stars Impressive Debut. 3 April 2013
By Lorri
Format:Kindle Edition
If I had to judge Black Sea Gods by its cover then I wouldn't have been too impressed, but inside is an absolutely brilliant tale that had me enthralled for a complete day. Powerfully written it has just the right mix of vulnerability in its characters as they face threats and dangers from the gods whilst introducing a strong moral theme which I found particularly poignant. The author Brian Braden brings a fresh perspective to a genre which often suffers from a lack of originality and distinguishes himself a rising star. I received my copy of Black Sea Gods in return for my review but would have drawn the same conclusion if I had purchased it. I will certainly be buying the next book by Brian Braden.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful debut 8 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What an inspired book, and certainly surprised me in many ways, not least when I discovered the original source. It riveted me from the outset, and I can't wait for the next book in the series

Try it. It's certainly fantastic fantasy, well written, and has all the main ingredients to become an outstanding epic up there with the greats!

5.0 out of 5 stars A hero's journey fantastically told... 25 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Braden's world is masterfully rendered. His characters expertly sketched. His dialogue swinging from the earnest to the poetic without ever missing a beat. His plot rises from humble beginnings and leaps straight into the heart of humanity's most enduring creation myths. There is surprise, there is peril, there is sincerity, there is humour and there is heart breaking sadness. There is magic here, and dragons too, but not the kind you might be expecting.

Black Sea Gods does what all fantasy, epic or heroic, strives to do- to archetype humanity's ideals of its own innocence, and pit it face to face with the agents of corruption.

There are mighty rivers here, stretching steppe and towering mountains, but a good fantasy journey is as much a journey through the heart as through the world, and Braden knows this instinctively. For fantasy lovers, this is a book that will surely stay with you.

I always find it uplifting when I come across a book that is both entertaining and deeply thought provoking and author Brian Braden has written one. By weaving biblical reference with fantasy he has created a deep and insightful work of fantasy that is up there with the best. His attention to detail is inspiring and his narrative faultless. Excellent debut.
