A strongly built world in which a cast of well developed characters have numerous and often distinctly interesting adventures. It's a typical fantasy novel developed in untypical ways as the author makes it clear that yes, fantasy is fantasy is fantasy but _this_ fantasy is going to be something different.

On a quest prompted by the little girl, the trio navigate a landscape ruined by the Black Plague as angels and devils wage war in a time and place rife with despair and ruin. Part historical fiction, part horror, part fantasy… it’s greater than the sum of its parts with its scope and vision. Steve West has a rich British voice that served the main narrative well but mispronunciations (“scythe” in particular came up often) and the voice he gave the little girl did the book a disservice in audio… (mais)
