    The Left Hand of God is the story of 16-year-old Thomas Cale, who has grown up imprisoned at the Sanctuary of the Redeemers, a fortress run by a secretive sect of warrior monks in a distant, dystopian past. He is one of thousands of boys who train all day in hand-to-hand combat, in preparation for a holy war that only the High Priests know is now imminent.

    Good Book 1...

    This is a good book 1, but there better be a next book! This one leaves you with that oh-so familiar feeling of incompleteness at the end like a good..Show More »

    The Sanctuary of the Redeemers is a vast and desolate place - a place without joy or hope. Most of its occupants were taken there as boys and for years have endured the brutal regime of the Lord Redeemers whose cruelty and violence have one singular purpose - to serve in the name of the One True Faith. In one of the Sanctuary's vast and twisting maze of corridors stands a boy. He is perhaps fourteen or fifteen years old - he is not sure and neither is anyone else.

    Good idea, poor execution

    Paul Hoffman seems to have come up with an interesting plot, but unfortunately never got past the drafting stage for this novel. The clipped dialogue ..Show More »

    The epic story of Thomas Cale 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.

    Worth the wait

    Enjoyed Hoffman's second installment. Great pacing, nice character development and a plot that truly evolves in a second novel rather than just being ..Show More »

    The eagerly awaited sequel to The Left Hand of God. Death, Judgement, Heaven and Hell. These are The Last Four Things Now there are Five. Meet Thomas Cale. Returning to the Sanctuary of the Redeemers - Thomas Cale is told by the Lord Militant that the destruction of mankind is necessary - the only way to undo God's greatest mistake. Cale seemingly accepts his role in the ending of the world - fate has painted him as the Left Hand of God, the Angel of Death.

    Totally dissappointing sequel

    I could quite easily believe it was written by a different, much less talented, author. Really dissappointing.

    Thomas Cale has been running from the truth. Since discovering that his brutal military training has been for one purpose - to destroy God's greatest mistake, mankind itself - Cale has been hunted by the very man who made him into the Angel of Death: Pope Redeemer Bosco. Cale is a paradox: arrogant and innocent, generous and pitiless. Feared and revered by those created him, he has already used his breathtaking talent for violence and destruction to bring down the most powerful civilisation in the world.

    Wow Hoffman, what the?

    I wish he would have stuck to the same writing style that made the first 2 so great.
