“The pacing kept me engaged, and I have to admit, kept me up past my bedtime on more than one occasion. I can’t wait to read the sequel.” – Shay Fabbro from, “Writing on the Rocks”
"First Chosen isn't just a book - it is a window into another world." - Merelan Jones of Renaissance Productions.
On her twenty-first birthday, Julianna, frees an ancient god from his thousand-year prison. In his "gratitude," the god names her his high priest and commands Julianna to lead his people to greatness once again. Unfortunately, it is a crime for her to worship one of the five ancient gods, a crime punishable by execution and the destruction of her soul.
"The storytelling was truly out of this world. Gallowglas has created something gorgeous and complex." - Offbeat Vagabond
“A truly entertaining read.” – David Welsh, Author of LEGEND UNBORN
“M. Todd Gallowglas has written a compelling tale in ‘First Chosen (Tears of Rage)’. The world in which he sets the tale is a vivid, complex world; one in which theology and politics are so intertwined that it is hard to tell where one leaves off and the other begins.” – Best in Fantasy Blog
“I would definitely recommend as a great epic fantasy read.” – Jen Wylie, Author of SWEET LIGHT
“The characters are well-drawn and the world is truly fascinating, with its talk of gods and miracles. It is an unconventional design for a fantasy novel, and it works very much to the author’s advantage. We get several POV characters to give us different angles on the world, and none of them seem superfluous.” – Christopher Kellen
Fans of George RR Martin's A GAME OF THRONES and Steven Erikson's THE MALAZAN BOOK OF THE FALLEN will find themselves right at home with the TEARS OF RAGE sequence.
