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?… (mais)

I never would have found The Left Hand of God if I hadn't received it in a Goodreads giveaway. The Last Four Things, the second book in the trilogy, picks up right where the first book leaves off and we quickly learn Redeemder Bosco's plans for Thomas Cale - as fanatical and sinister as ever. There is more action in this second book - and occasionally the battle sequences are a bit of a struggle to follow - but there is also a great deal more background about the various groups of people that inhabit this world and the dynamics that are at play across factions. And, just as in the first book, there are some twists at the end that one likely won't expect. I'm definitely excited to get my hands on The Beating of His Wings to see how the story of Thomas Cale ends... ( )

I rather enjoyed the first book in this series, but I really struggled with this one. It just seemed to drag on with endless pages of battle strategies, and even when things were actually happening, they seemed to lack the purpose of the first book. ( )

not quite as absorbing as the first volume, although if you are a student of military history and strategy I imagine it would be fascinating. ends well - can't wait for the next volumes, but that's because the story returns to the psychological and emotional trauma. love that the author has happily (use the word in both senses) stitched together bits of real history and other bits of totally upside-down history - intellectually fun to try and recognise them (sure I missed loads) and that the boer war was included.

complex, chilling and depressing. Review soon! ( )

I was pretty disappointed, really. Two years ago, I found `The Left Hand of God' to be a really wonderful book. I loved the protagonist Cale, and the setting in The Sanctuary. I was looking forward to this sequel that I even temporarily quit another book I'm curently reading to start with it as soon as I got my hands on it. This time, however, I was never really dragged into the story, nor the world in which it takes place. Also the dark and bitter atmosphere I loved so much in the first book seemed absent to me in `The Last Four Things'.

Nevertheless, it's a page turner again, and I will definitely read the third and final book, even though I'm not really that curious about the continuation of the story anymore. ( )
