When Gods Clash is set in the present day. Packed full of paranormal intensity, a classic good versus evil struggle, this epic series will keep you on the edge of your seat as it races to a dramatic ending.
Angus MacDonald must fight ancient deities and win to save mankind.
While visiting the battlefield of Culloden, Scotland, emotionally damaged US marine veteran Angus MacDonald hears a voice. A voice that connects him to his forefathers, butchered by the British in 1746. It delivers a frightening message: Fight an unworldly foe or prepare for Earth’s enslavement.
The terrors he faced as a Marine in Afghanistan pale compared to this latest enemy and the toughest battle of his life begins. When he returns to Washington, D.C., Hades, follows. The Gods of mythology’s voice had told him Hades was alone in his hate, but no, and the vicious attacks are beyond his imaginings as the theater of war spreads.
Can he preserve his sanity and survive?
Armed with love from his teammate Jessica and family, Angus recognizes the universal truth that love is greater than any weapon. Then tragedy strikes and support declines as friends perish. Hope fades when a new challenger arrives. The scourge of civilizations glares fury, and survival rests on the outcome of his ultimate battle.

An Interview with the author of the When Gods Clash series, Rob James
What drove you to write the When Gods Clash series?
Since I could read, the stories and epics of history filled my soul. Be it Rob Roy MacGregor or Achilles and Poseidon, they have stayed with me. I had written nine novels in the conspiracy/military genres and during this time yearned to create a novel built on history but set in the present day. It was a pleasure to write When Gods Clash.
What is unique about the When God’s Clash series?
The Gods of Olympus are not myths. They have insecurities and form a reasonable portion of the plot. I approached the threats to humankind from angles I had not read before. But I guess the messages for humankind delivered by the books are the most unique feature.
What is the major driving force for the When Gods Clash series?
The protagonist forces the story forward and often in bounds as he struggles with decisions affecting his family, friends, and humanity. Readers can sense the emotions and experience the tale through his pain.
Is there much romance within this series?
Some, but a spin-off due to launch late in 2022 with characters from this series, contains more romance.
Who would enjoy reading the series?
It’s one for ages 16+ and ideal for anyone who enjoys novels with epic fantasy, historical fiction, action, and thrills at its core.
