Publisher Description

The epic story of Thomas Cale-introduced so memorably in The Left Hand of God--continues as the Redeemers use his prodigious gifts to further their sacred goal: the extinction of humankind and the end of the world.To the warrior-monks known as the Redeemers, who rule over massive armies of child slaves, "the last four things" represent the culmination of a faithful life. Death. Judgement. Heaven. Hell. The last four things represent eternal bliss-or endless destruction, permanent chaos, and infinite pain.Perhaps nowhere are the competing ideas of heaven and hell exhibited more clearly than in the dark and tormented soul of Thomas Cale. Betrayed by his beloved but still marked by a child's innocence, possessed of a remarkable aptitude for violence but capable of extreme tenderness, Cale will lead the Redeemers into a battle for nothing less than the fate of the human race. And though his broken heart foretells the bloody trail he will leave in pursuit of a personal peace he can never achieve, a glimmer of hope remains. The question even Cale can't answer: When it comes time to decide the fate of the world, to ensure the extermination of humankind or spare it, what will he choose? To express God's will on the edge of his sword, or to forgive his fellow man-and himself?

    " I'm really not sure what I think of this series. At times it is fantastic and others I can't even tell who is speaking. "

    " Not as good or as immediate as the left hand of god, I would even say a bit boring towards the end. Shame. "

    " Still a good read, which teems with allusions and jokes, but weaker than the first novel of this trilogy. Too much about battles for my liking. "

    " This one really needs a who's who list in the front and a "our story so far" recap. RE-READ book 1 before reading this one. It was too confusing otherwise. I was not too happy with this one, but I still want to know WHAT Hoffman is getting at. "

    " I really hate it when publishers/authors feel the need to make what could be one glorious book into three. As a standalone book this one was weak. However, put it in the middle of a long story and things likely would have flowed better. "

    " This was a good follow up to 'The left hand of God' I was interested to see how things we end for the three acolytes, however I was somewhat left wondering is this the end or to be continued. "

    " Once again the autor managed to suprise me and I have to say i loved it really the book is writen really well. And the story is amazing and keeps you guessing all the time. I think this is suposed to have a third book and i can't wait for it! "

    " When Cale witnesses a Redeemer committing an unspeakable act, a series of choices and events that will change everything is set in motion. Alternate history/fantasy and the first in a trilogy. Hoffman's characters come to life! "
