Language: English . Brand New. His extraordinary debut, Those across the River, was hailed as genre-bending Southern horror (California Literary Review) and graceful [and] horrific (Patricia Briggs). Now Christopher Buehlman invites readers into an even darker age--one of temptation and corruption, of war in heaven and of hell on earth. And Lucifer said, Let us rise against Him now in all our numbers, and pull the walls of heaven down. The year is 1348. Thomas, a disgraced knight, has found a young girl alone in a dead Norman village. An orphan of the Black Death, and an almost unnerving picture of innocence, she tells Thomas that plague is only part of a larger cataclysm--that the fallen angels under Lucifer are rising in a second war on heaven, and that the world of men has fallen behind the lines of conflict. Is it delirium or is it faith? She believes she has seen the angels of God. She believes the righteous dead speak to her in dreams. And now she has convinced the faithless Thomas to shepherd her across a depraved landscape to Avignon. There, she tells Thomas, she will fulfill her mission: to confront the evil that has devastated the earth and to restore to this betrayed, murderous knight the nobility and hope of salvation he long abandoned. As hell unleashes its wrath, and as the true nature of the girl is revealed, Thomas will find himself on a macabre battleground of angels, demons, saints, and the risen dead--and in the midst of a desperate struggle for nothing less than the soul of man.

Synopsis : [Library Edition Audiobook CD in vinyl case.]
Another inventive novel of epic terror by the acclaimed author of Those Across the River
In the darkest days of the Dark Ages, the people of France faced both the Black Plague and desperate gangs of men who wandered the depopulated countryside looting and raping. Tomas, a disgraced knight, is one of these men. When he and his group of hardened men come across a farm where they can find a meal, they also encounter a girl orphaned by the Plague. An unnerving picture of innocence, she tells Tomas that the disease is only part of a greater, more significant cataclysm -- that the fallen angels under Lucifer are rising in a second war on heaven.
Is she really blessed, or is it delirium? As hell unleashes its fury and the true nature of the girl is revealed, Tomas finds himself on a macabre battleground of angels and demons, sinners and saints, and a damnable struggle for nothing less than the soul of man.
