Three years have passed since Valducan knight Matt Hollis defeated Tiamat's cult, but her demonic children are still a threat. Now, a mysterious enemy is stealing holy weapons across South America, leaving a trail of bodies in its wake. The Valducans fear that Tiamat's followers have returned. But not all is as it seems and a new player has joined the hunt: the paladins of the Catholic Church. To stop an evil that none of them could ever imagine, the Order must set aside centuries of animosity and join forces with its long-standing enemy.

Redemptor was fantastic I listened to the entire recording in one day because I could not stop. I have consumed all four of Seth's books in a span of maybe three weeks. I have made these recordings required listening for my RPG group in an effort to spread the word of these fantastic books. I figure if I operate like a pyramid scheme in telling two people and they tell two people and so on and so on then the fame and notoriety of this fantastic author will spread like wild fire. The Valducan series my new favorite and that is saying a lot considering I weigh that against Dan Brown's Robert Langdon series and the Thomas Harris Hannibal Lecter series. I highly recommend this book and any other book in the series.

After surviving a demon attack, disgraced police detective Victoria Martin tracks down the Valducans in search of answers. Recognizing her potential, and despite the warnings of the other knights, Allan Havlock, protector of Ibenus, takes her in as his apprentice. As the Valducans travel to Paris to destroy a demon nest infesting the catacombs, the knights find themselves hunted by an Internet group intent on exposing them. Victoria, who belongs to this group, must desperately play both sides to protect not only herself but Allan, whom she has begun to love.

Ibenus is a fantastic book Allan Havlock is my favorite character in the series. I was overjoyed to have a book where he was a pivotal figure and Ibenus I love this sword. Images of its bronze blade flashed in my minds eye throughout this epic tale. Seth Skorkowsky is quickly becoming one of my favorite writers and I can't wait for book 4.

Matt Hollis is the current wielder of the holy weapon, DÄMOREN. With it, he stalks and destroys demons. A secret society called the VALDUCANS has taken an interest in Matt's activities. They see him as a reckless rogue - little more than a "cowboy" corrupted by a monster - and a potential threat to their ancient order. As knights and their sentient weapons begin dying, Matt teams up with other hunters of his kind such as LUIZA, a woman with a conquistador blade; ALLAN, an Englishman with an Egyptian khopesh; MALCOLM, a voodoo priest with a sanctified machete; and TAKAIRA, a naginata-swinging Samurai.

In keeping with his trademark style, Dan Brown, author of The Da Vinci Code and Inferno, interweaves codes, science, religion, history, art, and architecture in this new novel. Origin thrusts Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon into the dangerous intersection of humankind's two most enduring questions - and the earthshaking discovery that will answer them.

Really enjoyed it Dan Brown has a way of making you think about everything. His character Robert Langdon and I share many viewpoints I always find myself identifying with him.
