Publisher's Summary

The gods walk again....
When Marine Corps pilot Jacob Merely crashes during a routine mission off the coast of Cyprus, he was sure it was game over.
After surviving the crash and pulling himself onto the sandy shores of a long-abandoned island, however, Jacob unwittingly stumbles headfirst into the ancient ruins of a dead city. Unfortunately, he also stumbles into an age-old battle between good and evil - and he is now its newest recruit.
The island once belonged to the Amazons, daughters of Ares, the God of War, and stood as the final bastion between the human world and the monstrosities of the Great Below. But Jacob’s arrival has awakened the old gods and disturbed the seal holding the ravaging darkness at bay.
Now, with the help of a sacred gem containing Ares’ power, Jacob must recreate the Amazonian defenders of humanity and fortify the island stronghold. And if he fails, Hades will unleash his army of the damned and the world of men will fall, giving rise to an age of walking nightmares.
"You had me at mythology. You sold me at the crafting, game mechanics, great characters, and serious action. From start to finish, War God's Mantle delivers. Do not miss this book!" (Harmon Cooper, author of Fantasy Online and The Feedback Loop series)

Great Detailed Epic

As a fan of previous works by James Hunter i was expecting great things and the detailed world building wa excellent. not sure the war god route works as well as say his viridian gate series as the start is a little rocky with the flow. It does pick up tho and by the end we are in full flow with a thoughly enjoyable adventure.
The very very end does fall slightly flat as maybe a little rushed and not what i expected but does not stop me from looking forward to the 2nd adventure.
Narration worked very well i thought.
This was a story i asked for and as such is based on my own opinion.
