Item description for Godforsaken by Steven Shrewsbury...

In 59 AD, as the Celt horde on Anglesey succumbs to Roman aggression, war goddess Fey grants Lucan Mac Aliester his wish---life. Lucan soon discovers that it is not his Druidic people the bargain elevates, but himself. He receives not only great strength and a command over wolves, but the ability to see through the eyes of ravens. But what is the genuine motive for the bequest of Fey? This chronicle tells of Lucan's bloody journey from chieftain to the deified leader of a new barbarian race. Through Gaul, to the Roman arena, ruins of Babylon, the Garden of Eden, the temple of Ashtaroth and ultimately, into the abode of the frost giants, Lucan discovers the burden of what he is---a god.

Reviews - What do customers think about Godforsaken?

A vibrant and adventurous novel  Dec 10, 2005
A ripping good, 271 page, action/adventure sword-and-sorcery novel by Steven Shrewsbury, Godforsaken is the story of a Celtic warrior fallen in battle to Roman legions, granted a reprieve from death by the war goddess Fey. He receives immense strength, command over wolves, and the ability to see through the eyes of ravens, and embarks on a bloody trek from chieftain to deified ruler of a new barbarian race. The burdens of godhood form a dangerous path, with ultimate goals murky and shrouded by the weight of history. A vibrant and adventurous novel, brimming with tests not only of mettle but also destiny.
Shrewsbury strikes again!  Aug 22, 2005
As a fan of this guys work I knew what to expect when I read the first page and I was
NOT disappointed. Once again in the grand, ferocious style reminiscent of Robert E.
Howard Mr. Shrewsbury has created a great piece of work. The strength of the character,
the historical details, the bloody trail he leaves as he makes his way through this adventure
and of course a little sex thrown in is a great mix for an awesome adventure. This is definately a page turner, I could hardly put it down!

A Must Read!  Aug 20, 2005
A hard-hitting tale of violence and lust, this is among the finest work by the prolific and very talented Steven Shrewsbury. Shrewsbury knows how to craft a tale---this novel is fast-paced and action-packed, yet Shrewsbury takes time to delve into the characters' internal struggles and motivations, making this fantasy slanted historical seem real. Very creative and well plotted story, the tale comes highly recommended. A magnificent work which rivals the book's cover.
Shrewsbury Scores Again!  Aug 17, 2005
Having read other books and stories from the prolific Mr. Shrewsbury, I totally expected a captivating tale of violence and lust when I picked up Godforsaken. And in this, Shrewsbury did not disappoint. Tremendous tale, fantastic characters, and enough violence and lust to really get the blood pumping.

But Shrewsbury does not stop there...we also get to see the inner turmoil of a mortal man who becomes a god. We also get to see some rather interesting tie-ins to Christianity. In classic Shrewsbury fashion, everything was well done and the pace kept moving throughout the book, adding to the book's appeal.

I highly enjoyed Godforsaken, and would highly recommend it to anyone. I also look forward to reading Shrewsbury's next piece.
History and Fiction Unite  Aug 16, 2005
Steven Shrewsbury's GODFORSAKEN is an in-your-face, action-packed, Historical-meets-Fantasy foray into the barbarian realms of the primitive Celtic world. Pagan gods, Roman aggressors, brutal warfare and human emotion all collide to bring the characters alive. This isn't your daddy's Fantasy....the Norse Fatalism and fierce realism in GODFORSAKEN strikes a chord so deep the reader can hear the clash of steel and roll of thunder on these pages. The action,lust, and emotion will keep you turning pages and the twist of an ending will leave you staring, mouth agape, at that last page -- goading you to read it one more time.
