— Booklist Starred Review
Deep inside the tomb exists a hidden world of wonder and terror.
In 1935, British archaeologists vanished inside an Egyptian cave. A year later, one man returned covered in mysterious scars.
Egyptologist Imogen Riley desperately wants to know what happened to the ill-fated expedition led by her grandfather. On a quest for answers, she joins a team of archeologists and soldiers in Egypt. Inside a mountain tomb, they’ve found a technologically advanced relic and a maze of tunnels. Dr. Nathan Trummel believes this tomb leads to the most guarded secrets of the pharaohs. When the explorers venture deep into the caves, they discover a hidden world of wonder and terror.

Raves and Reviews
"Nicely paced and laced with palpable tension [...] Horror fans will be pleased as the terrors of the tomb force each character to confront a past trauma"
“The suspense of the story, aided by sly hints from the author, and the atmosphere of a dark, claustrophobic tomb work together to create a scary story. The characters’ fear invites the reader into the world to experience the fright themselves.”
“Moreland gives us a unique vision of Egyptian deities in “Tomb of Gods” and the novel is a fun read with a strong plot yet easily accessible story. A definite recommendation for fans of horror in general but particularly for those who like stories about Egypt and its mythology.”
“The novel will scare you, confound you, and force you to think, and that, readers, is the mark of an excellent read.”
"Tomb of Gods completely knocked me out from beginning to end, with some of the sequences so unrelentingly fast moving it was impossible to put down."
– Tony’s Top 10 Horror Novels of 2020, HorrorDNA.com
“What starts out as a good adventure story, grows into so much more as it moves along. Tomb of Gods is fantastically imaginative, darkly fun, and horrifically astounding; I expect this book to make my Top 10 Reads of 2020.”
– Dead Head Reviews
“Tomb of Gods was a thrilling and chilling read, cleverly weaving together history with mythology, with the creeping presence of horror underneath.”
– Beneath a Thousand Skies
“I just wanted to read this book and fall in love, all over again, with Egypt and the gods… I definitely wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone, lover of Ancient Egypt or not.”
– The Magic of Worlds Blog
“It is obvious how much research the author has done as he weaves the beautiful scenery, and traditions into this horror story.”
– The Divine Writes Blog
“The horror was chilling, and I had a hard time putting the book down once I started it. Brian Moreland puts a great deal of care into his characters and his internal mythology, and he can write a spine-tingling story.”
– We Who Walk Here, Walk Alone Blog
“This is a book that actually made me feel the pain of the characters, the fear was visceral. Several times, I had to put the book down because it was so well written."
– Book Bustle Blog
“With a mixture of adventure, tense claustrophobic horror, horrifying monsters, an engaging cast of characters and a slightly different portrayal of the Egyptian pantheon, we are drawn deep into the “Tomb of Gods” and we might not leave.”
– Books I Like Blog
“This is not a book to read with the lights off, but it is absolutely a book to read!”
– Reading Reality Blog
"Horror fiction and horror films abound with stories of the “you-don’t-want-to-go there” and while Tomb of Gods can be filed within this sub-genre, Moreland has come up with something different within that trope by combining Egyptian mythology (which he clearly knows a lot about) with great scene-setting, claustrophobic horror, uncovering the unknown, thrills and action and maybe a smattering of romance"
