Publisher's Summary

When powerful siblings discover a terrifying truth, will they embrace a new destiny or turn to darkness?

Ashaya Blacksun has had a weight lifted from her shoulders. Freed by her father's abdication of his crown, the former princess's delight over choosing her own path is barely dimmed by her strange and haunting dreams. But when her beloved twin brother doesn't return home from a ranging expedition, the unconventional young woman fears something has gone terribly wrong.

Born into royalty, Sirich Blacksun quietly seethes that he's no longer heir to the throne. Still determined to maintain a position of leadership, he sets out to investigate the disturbing news of carnage in the south. But when he crosses paths with a powerful figure straight out of lore, the temptation to ignore his beloved father's bold vision in favor of his own ambition becomes increasingly difficult to resist.

Defying tradition by sneaking off to find her missing twin, Ashaya's travels over deadly terrain are plagued by intensifying visions that point to a dark fate. And as Sirich's strange new companion shows him a new way forward, the frustrated would-be king faces a frightening choice.

As these scions of nobility grapple with a new reality, will their quest for truth end in tragedy?

The Crimson Gods is the first audiobook in the sweeping Crimson Gods medieval epic fantasy series. If you like fierce characters, ancient fables, and stunning twists, then you'll love Chris M. Christian's breathtaking epic.

Medieval Fantasy

I’m usually not a fan of medieval fantasy but this book took me by surprise. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters and the storyline took me in and I couldn’t stop listening. I had to know what happened next. I really hope this is the first in a series!

Enjoy This Rich and Mature Fantasy

This audio book is in the tradition of contemporary fantasy, and is a satisfying pleasure. A feudal dynasty consorts with demons from its past, resulting in both powerful and tragic outcomes. Complex characters cross between good and evil, and sometimes back again, when faced with unbearable temptations. The sympathetic viewpoints are a strong point in this book, but might not be suitable for pre-adolescents though mature teens will probably understand and enjoy them.

The story is well woven and can be followed in a single run, but also benefits from going back to review, or even multiple listens. Similarly, having a copy of the book in hand is helpful but not necessary, as the audio book stands on its own.

Getting immersed in this world, and its all too understandable enticements, is a great pleasure. This book is a good gift idea for fantasy lovers on any list.

the narration was great. the creativity and the writing were on point! it's one thing to continuously tell the same story using vampires but the way Chris did it to my knowledge hasn't been done like this absolutely refreshing and for me from start to finish captivating!

Really good start to a series by a new author

This was a really good start to s new series by a new author. I listened to this twice before writing my review because I wanted to make sure I took everything in. First off I enjoyed the listens very much. The narrator was good but he needs work on his female voices but overall it was a job well done on the narration. I have listened to over 300 audio books and a bad narrator can ruin the experience but this was not the case. The story itself was also very good, although it did not go down the path I was expecting which is good and bad. I don't want to give too much away because it may spoil some things for you, but I liked it regardless. I am looking forward to the next book of the series and seeing where the author takes this story.

Take me back to Aashgoth!

Mr Christian has created a special place here and I hope to visit again. This depth of this compelling story grows with the turn of each page and I literally could not put it down. A very satisfying read with so many intriguing paths for continued exploration. I’m curious! I’m hooked! I want more! Here’s hoping the author brings us back into this world; the people, the histories and especially, the mysteries! A truly magical world.
