The Black God’s War
”Moses is a fine writer and is deserving of success, and I think that it will follow … maybe his project will turn him into the next Amanda Hocking. Personally, I really enjoyed Moses’s work.”
-David Farland, NYT Bestselling Author of The Runelords
“Given the quality of the writing, you would not know that this is Siregar’s first novel and he set the bar quite high … I enjoyed this book, immensely. It had style, it had substance, and it had a lot of heart.” (9.4/10)
“Moses Siregar has written a debut that showcases talent and a desire to tell stories that are epic in scope and also incite wonderment. Give this Indie debut a try as it’s one of those that promises a talented author to watch for and who hopefully will continue to enthrall his readers for a long, long time.”
–Fantasy Book Critic
My debut epic fantasy novel, The Black God’s War, was released on August 1st, 2011. The novel works very well as a stand-alone read, but it’s also the first book in my series, Splendor and Ruin. It’s now available at Amazon US (or UK or DE), B&N, Kobo, iBooks, and Smashwords. Physical copies are available at CreateSpace, Amazon, and B&N.
The novel came out of the gate with some great reviews from MotherLode, Indie Fantasy Review, Adventures in SciFi Publishing, Journal of Always, Stories of My Life, FantasyBookReview.co.uk, and a Top 1000 Reviewer at Amazon (R. Nicholson). A BookReporter.com reviewer gave the novel an honorable mention for his favorite book of 2011. The novel won two awards in the the eFestival of Words “Best of the Independent eBook Awards;” it won the awards for *Best Fantasy* and *Best Novel.*
A free 15-chapter, 27,000-word excerpt introducing my epic fantasy novel is available for free on Amazon (also UK) and on Smashwords, Barnes & Noble, iBooks, Kobo, and Sony. At this point, I’d suggest reading only the first five chapters of this free work, since everything after chapter 5 is arranged differently in the novel (it’s better to read the novel after you’ve finished chapter five).
Red Adept, perhaps the indie book reviewer, gave the free novella 5 stars. She accepts bribes, by the way. The novella has been reviewed by Red Adept, Fantasy Book Review, Stories of my Life, Signal dot Noise, Bryan Thomas Schmidt, MotherLode, Novelnaut, W. Brondtkamffer, and Skull Salad. And a great comment from blogger Monica Chriscoe.
The first chapter of my book can be read without a log-in account on GoodReads. You can also catch me reading an older version of the first chapter on YouTube (from March 2010). You can preview more of the novel using Amazon’s Look Inside feature, or directly in your browser thanks to this nifty preview from Goodreads.
