Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Strength Behind the Hype A good solid book in its own right, and well worth the read for anyone who enjoys fantasy with a dark edge. The comparison to Tolkein – I think – does an injustice to both this author and to Tolkein. They are not in the same league and a reader who goes to this book expecting Tolkein’s writing style cannot help but be disappointed. Yet I recommend it without hesitation on its own merits. A basic Bible knowledge will be of help to the reader in following some of the symbolism, although word-plays and coined words often disguise the symbolism that is there. Many – perhaps most – Christian readers will struggle with some of the occult references. It is not a “feel-good” book for Christian readers. It grapples with key issues and exposes corruption in high places within the church, although the time period allows some distancing and cushions the impact. Very much a genre book, this story is somehow breaking across typical genre boundaries and drawing a wide and diverse readership. It is worth checking out and forming your own opinion.

About the Book

An apocalyptic battle between good and evil is vigorously, violently fought in British author G.P. Taylor's suspenseful, action-packed fantasy. The story, set in the 1700s on the Yorkshire coastline, revolves around Vicar Obadiah Demurral, a corrupt-but-inept, dead-conjuring "shadowmancer" who desires to control the universe by overthrowing God, or Riathamus.
