This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
A plot / story arc would be great!
Has Shadows of the Gods turned you off from other books in this genre?
Have you listened to any of Jay Snyder’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I cant compare any one performance os Jay Snyder with any other. They seem to be custom crafted to the story. Jay is a fantastic performer.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Any additional comments?
This story can only be described as 1 part high verbosity monologue, 2 parts battle porn, and the tiniest smidgen of a plot.
I have read and enjoyed other Jay Allan stories, but I was very disappointed in this one.
The narration, however, was awesome. Kudos to Jay Snyder for breathing life into this story.

Shadow of the Gods is Jay Allan's 2nd installment of the Crimson Worlds Refugee series. The armada, still cut off form Earth, continues to move deeper into First Imperium space and begin to find evidence of old battles that occurred on settled planets. An attempt to grow food, allows for exploration of alien ruins which reveals some answers to what happened to the First Imperium, the origin of the Regent, and even humanity's existence. With new found resolve, along with some epic battles, the slowly dwindling force finally limps off for some bit of respite.
The sci-fi elements remain largely in the realm of physics with FTL capability, energy weapons, and military robots. DNA tinkering plays prominently for why everything is the way it is. Also unfolding is a pure, diabolically evil artificial intelligence that is not only unlikely to stop, but still is intent on Earth's eventual destruction. The science geek and Mark Harman, both play pivotal roles.
The narration is well done with an excellent range of voices of both genders.
