Details

"The Left Hand of God" by Paul Hoffman is the gripping first instalment in a remarkable trilogy. "Listen. The Sanctuary of the Redeemers on Shotover Scarp is named after a damned lie for there is no redemption that goes on there and less sanctuary." 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. He has long-forgotten his real name, but now they call him Thomas Cale. He is strange and secretive, witty and charming, violent and profoundly bloody-minded. He is so used to the cruelty that he seems immune, but soon he will open the wrong door at the wrong time and witness an act so terrible that he will have to leave this place, or die. His only hope of survival is to escape across the arid Scablands to Memphis, a city the opposite of the Sanctuary in every way: breathtakingly beautiful, infinitely Godless, and deeply corrupt. But the Redeemers want Cale back at any price ...not because of the secret he now knows but because of a much more terrifying secret he does not. "The Left Hand of God" is a must read. It is the first instalment in a gripping trilogy by Paul Hoffman. Imagine if Phillip Pullman's "His Dark Materials" met Umberto Eco's "Name of the Rose". Fans of epic heroic fiction will love this series. Praise for Paul Hoffman: "This book gripped me from the first chapter and then dropped me days later, dazed and grinning to myself". (Conn Iggulden). "Tremendous momentum". ("Daily Telegraph"). "A cult classic...". ("Daily Express"). Paul Hoffman is the author of four previous novels, "The Last Four Things" (2011), "The Left Hand of God" (2010), "The Golden Age of Censorship" (2007), a black comedy based on his experiences as a film censor and "The Wisdom of Crocodiles" (2000), which predicted the collapse of the world financial system.
