During a winter storm, a ravenous beast preys upon the people of a remote town and a pipeline construction company. Among them, a predatorial psychopath welcomes a master as cold and dark as his heart. Following a trail of carnage, retired police chief Sam Larsen, along with a hellbent group of men and a corrupt sheriff, desperately try to stop the beast before its contagious hunger spreads to others. A young mother, trapped inside her isolated home with her children, must do everything in her power to survive the night.
PRAISE FOR BRIAN MORELAND:
“Moreland combines the best of what I love about horror fiction, impeccable prose, characters with a life-like depth, fantastic monsters and a palpable sense of dread that seemingly lunges off the pages and grabs you by the throat.” —Peter Schwotzer, Famous Monsters of Filmland
“Moreland has a fluid writing style that appears to be getting stronger with each new release. His attention to atmospheric details quickly draws the reader into the storyline, creating a vivid background that often acts as a “character” itself. Personally, I feel that this is one of his greatest strengths, along with his unique, imaginative plot-lines.” —Horror After Dark
"Brian Moreland writes a blend of survival horror and occult mystery that I find impossible to resist. His writing is clean, precise, and, best of all, compulsively readable. I know, when I've got one of his books in my hands, that I'm going to be lost to the world for hours on end. He's just that good." —Joe McKinney, author of Dead City and Flesh Eaters
“Brian Moreland is my new favorite author … He writes powerfully complex characters. He packs so much characterization in one hundred and sixty pages. From the prelude to the epilogue, I was hooked and reading at a break neck pace. I read this captivating story in one gulp … Brian Moreland’s concise writing style makes for an enjoyable reading experience.” —Cedar Hollow Horror Reviews
“The suspense of the story, aided by sly hints from the author, and the atmosphere of a dark, claustrophobic tomb work together to create a scary story. The characters’ fear invites the reader into the world to experience the fright themselves.” —Booklist Starred Review (Tomb of Gods)
“Moreland’s tale is nicely paced and laced with palpable tension […] Horror fans will be pleased as the terrors of the tomb force each character to confront a past trauma.” —Publishers Weekly (Tomb of Gods)
★★★★★ “A breathless adventure with non-stop action, thrills and horrific chills! One of my favorite books of the year.”—Hunter Shea, author of Misfits and Faithless (Tomb of Gods)
Goodreads Best Dark Fiction of 2020
★★★★★ “Tomb of Gods completely knocked me out from beginning to end, with some of the sequences so unrelentingly fast moving it was impossible to put down … the mythology explored in the second half of the story is simply outstanding, expanding into unexpected supernatural and theological directions … an absolute delight.” —Tony’s Top 10 Horror Novels of 2020, HorrorDNA.com
“What starts out as a good adventure story, grows into so much more as it moves along. Tomb of Gods is fantastically imaginative, darkly fun, and horrifically astounding; I expect this book to make my Top 10 Reads of 2020.” —Dead Head Reviews
“It’s called Tomb of Gods, and its mixture of horror and adventure with just a pinch of romance makes it a perfect Summer read for fans of films like 1999’s The Mummy … The novel will scare you, confound you, and force you to think, and that, readers, is the mark of an excellent read.” —iHorror
★★★★★ “I couldn’t stop reading this book. From page one to the very end, the story flew from the pages at 200 mph. Moreland created a very familiar, yet completely unique Egyptian adventure. Don’t let this one pass you by, this is a must-read and one of the best books I’ve read in the last few years” —Steve Stred, Kendall Reviews on Tomb of Gods
