-I liked The Last Sacrifice a great deal. I've always enjoyed Moore's work and don't see that changing anytime soon. He just keeps getting better. Check this one out and see.-

-What's Moore to say? People fighting Gods? Bring it! This is a great addition to James A. Moore's line up.-

-I love it. This is a story that turns the genre story arc on its head, mixes up the motives of heroes and villains, and muddies the waters of divine intervention. A fantastic, surprising start to a major new series.-
- Beauty in Ruins

-The Last Sacrifice is a solid start to the sordid grim-dark tale documenting the end of a bleak violent world.-
- Smorgasbord Fantasia

-I found The Last Sacrifice to be highly engaging, magical with a distinct grimdark feel and the world herein is richly imagined and cleverly wrought and brought to life. I can't wait to read the sequel and I am now also eager to check out the other works by this author. I highly recommend this book to all lovers of fantasy.-

-I'd recommend this and I'll be keeping an eye out for the next one. More evil Grakhul/He-Kisshi action please Mr Moore!-
- Ribaldry's Books

-I was just turning pages as fast as my eyes could devour the words.-
- On A Dark Stormy Review

-Moore has laid the groundwork for a trilogy that promises to be loaded with terrifically grim fantasy storytelling. I might even call it epic. There is a lot of swift, merciless violence in this book, mingled with an undercurrent of very welcome, if very dark, humor. All of it together takes me back to what made me giddy about epic fantasy way back when. I'd say I'm happy to be back, but I'm not sure that's quite the right word for a book packed with this much violent incident. Let's say instead that I'm bloody satisfied.-
- Rich Rosell for the B&N Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog

-Fast-paced fantasy that you simply can't put down. Great action adventure.-
- Morpheus Tales

-The Last Sacrifice is an enthralling fast-paced book with ass-kicking characters who could only grow stronger as the series progresses.-
- Zirev

"James A Moore throws in elements of horror, dark fantasy, low magic and some amazing world-building into this boiling mix that somehow seems to work. Spinning off the staid old genre story-lines into a new direction with this epic take on God versus Man, The Last Sacrifice is a solid start to the sordid grim-dark tale documenting the end of a bleak violent world."
- Fantasy Smorgasbord

"The Last Sacrifice will tickle the fancy of any fans of grimdark fantasy, with its large cast of characters and earth-shattering consequences."
- The Warbler Books

I like to try a new author every so often so when Audible trailed James A Moore's latest fantasy offering I chose him.  He's a versatile author who has written across multiple genres including horror, fantasy, action adventure and apparently even political.  All this having started writing for Marvel comics.  That's a background that has to elicit at least a little curiosity. What kind of fantasy is going to emerge from all of that?

In the end I think that most of those influences can be seen in "The Last Sacrifice", certainly the characters do have a certain comic book lustre to them and for the most part the story moves along at a brisk pace.  In fact we are barely introduced to the lead protagonist before his world is shaken apart. 

The narration by Adam Sims has a suitably hammy air and all in all I found it fairly entertaining.  It probably doesn't need to be said at this point but if you are looking for the next Rothfuss, Sanderson or Abercrombie you aren't going to find him here.  The world is actually well-painted in very efficient fashion but the magic system and the powers of supernatural beings seem to rely on being mysterious rather than showing any attempt at logic or consistency. 

There is plenty of action though and despite their rather random uses of their powers and susceptibility in combat the "Undying" are an interesting concept that it will be interesting to see develop.  There are elements of horror and the fighting is both bloody and frequent. 

In summary this does have a quasi-comic book appeal to it and I felt quite entertained listening to it.  If you are happy to take it on its own terms you'll likely enjoy it too

5.0 out of 5 stars PERFECT MIX OF HORROR AND EPIC FANTASY 30 May 2017
By Luke - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Written with James A. Moore's familiar swagger, pitting mortals against undying, swords against axes, thieves and travelers and mysterious peoples against the backdrop of an ever changing world and massive cities of sin and death and towers and walls and combat that makes you feel every single blow and every single brutal second, The Last Sacrifice is truly a masterpiece of epic fantasy and horror and should be devoured by all fans of both genres. With a premise that's as universally relatable as it is terrifying, Moore sets hero Brogan McTyre to the wheel of pain and watches him grind and dig and claw and scrape with the knowledge that personal loss and personal conviction is the true key to changing the entire world. With a great cast of characters and POV's, The Last Sacrifice excites down to the last chapter and is an impressive start to a new series from this fantasy/horror master.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good debut, but not as strong as previous series 28 Jan. 2017
By King Reviewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Although Moore exploded on the fantasy genre with Seven Forges, and has become one of my top fantasy authors, this latest new series starts off strong, but seems to waver a bit in the middle. Although it kept my interest throughout, some of the main characters stagnated a bit.
Some solid world building and lots of interesting characters that I hope he develops further in the next volume.
Moore sticks with his tried and true human vs God's storyline, but this latest seems a bit weaker than the Seven Forges series. But the next one might remedy all that.

Can't really recommend this book. The premise is good but the delivery is downright amateurish.
