Review by: S. M. Wagoner on Sep. 13, 2013 :
What else can I say but, "Wow!" It has been quite some time since a fantasy story swept me away, as this one did. Through the portal of Gareth Lewis's imagination, I was immediately transported to another dimension: a dark dimension, filled with the imaginary (Centaurs to succubus) and wholly fantastic (fallen angels to fallen gods). Even the city--Thief-City--is its own paranormal entity, acquiring its residents not through their choice but by...other means.

From first page to last, I was enthralled by Mr. Lewis's world, compelled to finish not only this journey with Rax Darkthorn but to accompany him on the ones yet to come. That being said, I will be reading the rest of the stories in this series, and looking forward to each one. I whole-heartedly recommend Street of Lost Gods to anyone who enjoys fantasy...and a dark hero

Review by: Maria Savva on July 26, 2012 :
I really enjoyed this short story. Gareth Lewis introduces us to another world where gods are reduced to begging on the streets. This strange world, may or may not exist, which makes it even more curious... one thing that is certain is that when someone arrives in this other dimension, it is almost impossible to leave. This is what makes it more surprising that Rax Darkthorn, who had once managed to escape the city, decides to return. His reason for going back is to find out if the rumour is true that his once good friend, a god, has died, and if so, the cause of his death.
I found the story intriguing. The author describes all the characters well, and takes the reader on an adventure. There is a touch of humour here and there amongst the dark storyline. Anyone who enjoys fantasy stories will like this story.

'Street of Lost Gods' by Gareth Lewis, is nothing short of magnificent. From his imagination, Mr. Lewis has cobbled together beings that will populate my nightmares. This is a vision of the dimensions left when heavens fail and hells are revealed. This was a beautiful, terrifying, riveting hour of reading.

A very interesting premise and enjoyable. I would love to see more stories from this world. I'm a sucker for first person narratives.
