Synopsis

1915. As the second battle of the Isonzo Front rages on the Italian Austro-Hungarian border, war threatens to engulf the Inquisition and dark forces muster amongst the most fanatical servants of the Catholic Church. Shortly before he is murdered, a desperate priest sends a secret letter to his brother serving in the Italian Army. Now this young soldier, destined for the horrors of a frontline high above the clouds, carries with him a letter which reveals why terrible satanic rituals are being committed, and by whom. Drawn into this conspiracy and hunted by agents of The Darkest Hand, old rivals must put aside their differences to discover the contents of the letter before it’s too late. But unity comes at a price for this unholy alliance. While the war rages, old enemies return from the dead and conspiracies weave tighter and deeper still into the heart of the Vatican. Only Poldek Tacit, the most determined and unhinged inquisitor of them all, can hope to push back the forces of evil and unite those for good. But what happens when Tacit finds that the path he walks has already been prophesied and that where it leads threatens the very future of a world already on the edge of the abyss?

"I have again found Tarn Richardson’s story to be very engaging with supernatural events twisting around real events in our past. With such murderous intentions, it is easy to understand how war can be seen as a coming apocalypse foretold in all the world’s mythologies. I am interested to see where the third novel goes as there are still a lot of questions left, regarding not only where we left the characters in this story, but also where it goes from here."
