"Writers like Hoffman are too rare. This wonderful book gripped me from the first chapter and dropped me days later, dazed and grinning to myself." -Conn Iggulden, New York Times bestselling author of The Dangerous Book for Boys

Raised from early childhood in the Redeemer Sanctuary, the stronghold of a secretive sect of warrior monks, Thomas Cale has known only deprivation, punishment, and grueling training. When he escsapes to the outside world, Cale learns that his embittered heart is still capable of loving- and breaking.

But the Redeemers won't accept the defection of their prized pupil without a fight...
Paul Hoffman studied English at New College, Oxford before becoming a senior film censor at the British Board of Film Classification. He lives in the United Kingdom. The Left Hand of God is the first in trilogy following Cale.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Yes *terrible* might seem a bit tenacious, but this book is terrible. I am not sure what kind of book it is supposed to be. I love fantasy and found this in that section. It contains names, mentions locations, and people from addition to the authors creations. It is poorly written and the characters are ridiculous. The arc of the main character Cale is laughable. The worst though is the interaction between male and female characters. It is so poorly, and cringe worthy written it reminded me of Robert Jordan. For example: ..."I understand," she said. It was that, of course, that pierced him as if she had stabbed him in the heart. To him it was the sound of lost faith and it was unendurable. He felt he'd become some kind of a god in her eyes, and it was simply impossible to give up her adoration.... This isn't even the worst of it. It is so cheesy and thoughtlessly thrown together it might as well have been a 13 year old writing. My final complaint (like you need another) is the acknowledgements he makes at the end. I was aware from the start that the author was borrowing genrously from other authors, but the list he provides and the acknowledgment that he is 'borrowing' from their work flipped my lid. Basically he had an extremely basic idea for a story, some weak characters and then threw them in with things from other peoples work. Anyways, I advise you to stay away from this book. It is not fantasy, and it is a weak, weak book.
