The Sin in the Steel is the first book in the Fall of the Gods series by Ryan Van Loan.
The story is about two best friends Buc and Eld who are hired by a big trading company to find out why their ships carrying sugar are disappearing. Buc, 17 is street smart and Eld, 19, is an ex-soldier, both teenagers, both determined to take on the adventure of sinking the Widowmaker's ship, that will set them up for life, if they can survive. The book is full of pirates, mages, dead gods, swashbuckling violence and gore. I must say this book is definitely a fantasy packed adventure with very interesting characters, that will keep you entertained, wanting more.
