The end times have come, but it’s not too late for a hero to strike back, in the grimdark fantasy sequel to The Last Sacrifice and Fallen Gods.
Brogan McTyre started a war with the gods, and he’s going to end it. Raging gods have laid waste to the Five Kingdoms. Only Torema remains, swollen with millions of refugees. Their last hope lies in fleeing by sea, but as storms tear at the coast, even King Opar can’t muster enough ships for them all. Brogan and his warriors must fight the He-Kisshi to reach the Gateway, the sole portal for gods to enter the mortal world – and the only place where they can be killed. But the forces of creation have been unleashed, and they’ll destroy the world to reshape it.

A brave warrior risks a battle with the gods to save his family in this “gripping, horrific, and unique” grimdark fantasy (Seanan McGuire, New York Times–bestselling author)
Since time began, the Grakhul—immortal servants of the gods—have taken human sacrifices to keep the world in balance and the gods appeased. But when warrior Brogan McTyre’s entire family is chosen as the next offering, the Grakhul are met with a resistance they never expected.
Determined to free his family from their terrible fate, Brogan begins the toughest battle of his life. But when you challenge the power of the gods, you challenge the very fabric of society. Declared an outcast, Brogan and his family are hunted like criminals—though they aren’t the only ones who suffer the consequences of their rebellion. When the gods turn their wrath elsewhere, Brogan realizes his fight is not just for the lives and freedom of his loved ones, but for the lives and freedom of the entire world.
