Zeus’ Warriors Is “an Addictive Treat!”

 

Zeus' Warriors cover_Small

Michael Smith from Mike’s Film Talk has posted an amazing review of bestselling author Michael West’s new Legacy of the Gods novel, Zeus’ Warriors.  Here’s a bit of what he had to say:

“This was a brilliant third installment to this ‘page turner’ series.   It is literally impossible not to attempt reading all of the book in one sitting…All of West’s characters connect with the reader…The Legacy of the Gods Book Three: Zeus’ Warriors was well worth the wait.  It is still set against an international backdrop and carries the story forward with an admirable momentum…Do not miss this third installment in the series…an addictive treat that will leave readers clamoring for more…Make sure you read this third visit to West’s wonderfully weird world.”

Synopsis for Zeus’ Warriors:

Zeus’ warriors, the defenders of humanity, have suffered terrible losses.

Presumed dead, Earl Preston has been forced to retreat into a forgotten underworld beneath New York City, but he is still far from safe. Hades’ disciples need only to recover the two remaining crystal skulls — ancient vessels of indescribable power — and their dark quest to return the vanquished gods to earth will be all but complete. To save civilization as we know it, Earl must rise to confront his greatest challenge yet, but this is a fight he cannot win alone.

Trapped inside an alien environment, Alan Everson and Kari Hannigan must put aside their differences and work together to help a gravely injured Carol Miyagi — a woman they both claim to love. Theirs is a journey to discover the secret of life itself. And they may not like what they find.

Jess Resides Here just posted a wonderful new 4-Star review of The Legacy of the Gods, Book Two: Hades’ Disciples.  Here is a bit of what she had to say:

“This is a seriously good series that I wish more people knew about. Michael has written what is a super fun and entertaining urban fantasy that gets the reader hooked and desperate for more… mythological and fantasy creatures tied to modern day… good guys in a race against time to keep the bad guys from implementing their evil plan… Well written characters that are so fascinating to read about I so want to get my hands on book three. You’ll also have a sex scene that will blow your mind. Highly recommended.”

Hades’ Disciples Catches Bitten by Books “Completely Off Guard!”

Bitten by Books newLogo

Bitten by Books just posted a new 4-star review of my second Legacy of the Gods novel, Hades’ Disciples. Here’s a bit of what they had to say:

“4-stars! This was the second installment of the series and, although Hades’ Disciples could stand on its own, I really appreciated the continuity and getting reacquainted with several of my favorite characters from the last book. I was, once again, impressed by the illustrations and the imagination that went into building these characters. This time the “creatures” felt more substantial and more threatening at the same time. I was particularly intrigued by the Dragon Lady Attorney that was introduced in this one…The ending caught me completely off guard, but now, of course, I need the third installment.

Bitten by Books Takes a Bite Out of Poseidon’s Children!

Bitten by Books newLogo

Bitten by Books just posted a new 4-star review of my first Legacy of the Gods novel,Poseidon’s Children.  Here’s a bit of what they had to say:

“4-stars! I love books that take place in and around the water so I was excited when I realized that Poseidon’s Children would involve Atlantis…I did enjoy the theories offered, and the illustrations really jumped off the page. It is also interesting that this tale is told from the viewpoint of several characters… There are some pretty gruesome moments and the bad guys are truly revolting. I was impressed with the imagination and amount of detail that went into bringing these creatures to life. The journey from character to character at the end gave me more than one opportunity to say, ‘I did not see that coming.’”

I Smell Sheep has just posted a great new 5-Star…er, Sheep review of my new novel, The Legacy of the Gods Book Two: Hades’ Disciples.  

5sheep-plain

Here is a bit of what they had to say:

“This is urban fantasy that takes creatures of myth and legends and stirs in alien mythology, with the added touch of Lovecraftian horror, to make one hell of a story to read. I cannot wait for the third book in series, Zeus’ Warriors (Legacy of the Gods, Book 3), and the satisfying conclusion I know Mr. West will bring to the readers.”

5sheep-plain

Here’s a bit of what they had to say:

“A great story that held me, it is dark fantasy tipping close to the edge of pure horror. Michael West brought a tale worthy of Lovecraft to the 21st century, making it real and natural, bringing the unnatural brimming beneath the surface up from the depths.”

Hades’ Disciples “is Done Brilliantly!”

Hades Disciples Kindle

Michael Smith, of the Las Vegas Guardian, just posted a wonderful new review of the second novel in my Legacy of the Gods series, Hades’ Disciples.  Here’s a bit of what he had to say:

“Author Michael West continues the story of the first Legacy of the Gods and takes the horror to another level. Introducing a twist in this tale of a battle to allow these shape shifting creatures to take over the world from mankind. This scribe, who also terrified fans with his tales of terror set in Indiana and his short stories, cranks things up with Hades’ Disciples. West writes action that cracks and his stories have a pace that never drags, along with these attributes, his characters are well drawn and his dialogue never hits a false note…Hades’ Disciples is a cracking read and earns a solid five star rating. Do not miss this one, if you are a fan of horror/science fiction and fantasy.“
